MORRISTOWN, Tenn.--()--Berkline, a leading home furnishings manufacturer specializing in reclining chairs, sofas, and home theater seating, today announced the introduction of its top-of-the-line Zero Gravity Feel Good™ Shiatsu Massage Chair, which will be featured at the High Point Market on October 17-22, 2009.

The crowning achievement in the company’s line of seven Feel Good™ therapeutic motion chairs, Berkline’s Shiatsu Massage Chair (Style 16027) offers several innovative features. An industry-first S-shaped backrest with auto scanning technology and intelligent robotics customizes the chair’s actual shape to the user’s body. Additionally, the chair offers the best Zero Gravity experience on the market today – elevating the knees high above the level of the heart and bringing the spine parallel to ground level.

As the most technologically advanced in the 7-chair collection, the Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair also uses the latest omni-directional air pressure system to power upper and lower body airbags and create an unmatched humanistic massage.

The Berkline Feel Good™ Massage Chair line—which is presently in stock and available for shipping within two to three days—consists of seven chairs with wholesale prices ranging from $2599 for the Zero Gravity Shiatsu chair to $999 for the Basic Shiatsu chair.

Among the many other standard features found on Berkline’s Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair, several that separate it from the competition include:

  • 6 pre-programmed massage sessions in a choice of therapeutic – and realistic --massage techniques including: Shiatsu (acupressure), Swedish, Kneading, Clapping, Vibration in the Seat, Tapping and Rolling
  • A footrest that adjusts to the user’s height
  • An easy-to-use wireless mini-controller and a 5 to 30-minute automatic timer
  • Berkline’s unique signature touch-button mechanism for chair adjustments

“Berkline’s Zero Gravity Shiatsu Massage Chair represents a new and expanded design direction for Berkline,” said President and CEO Rob Burch. “This unique line of chairs offers healing and comfort for every consumer at every price point, and should appeal to any retailer selling motion furniture. It’s a key part of our commitment to continually innovate and update our lines.”
