Conceived, engineered, and built to bring a lifelike luxury massage experience to the comfort of your home, the MA73 is “powered” by Panasonic’s proprietary RealPro Ultra 4D mechanism. The Panasonic MA73 delivers a professional massage experience, while its hideaway leg rest and arm massage units make it less obtrusive in your living room, bedroom, or den. With an increased number of automatic sessions and stretch sessions, the addition of dual-zone arm massage, and ceramic foot reflexology heaters, the MA73 is a step up from its hot-selling predecessor, the MA70. Precision body scanning technology measures over 1000 acupoints. Improved real-time roller pressure detection helps tailor the experience to you. Choose any of the expertly choreographed automatic sessions and indulge in pure bliss as heated rollers, ultra-kneading and full body air cell coverage work in concert to provide a structured and precise massage.
REAL PRO ULTRA 4D MASSAGE SYSTEM
With whisper-quiet high performance, the Real Pro Ultra 4D Human Intelligence mechanism goes beyond seamlessly moving in 3D space and authentically delivering a wide range of massage styles. By drawing real-time data from body sensors, it adjusts its speed and intensity to your body’s unique needs at the moment, just like a human massage therapist.
FULL BODY AIR MASSAGE
Thirty-three soothing air cells apply compression massage to the shoulders, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves, feet, forearms, and hands. The MA73’s extensive air cell array is carefully positioned for maximum benefit and insightfully programmed for maximum relaxation effect. Compression and release are sequenced to faithfully replicate the motions of a real massage therapist.
INFRARED HEATED ROLLERS
Infrared heated massage rollers generate soothing warmth to help relax sore, tense muscles. With heating elements located directly on the massage roller assembly, the MA73 delivers point-specific heat you’d expect to feel from the thumbs and palms of a massage therapist’s hands.
POSITION AND FORCE MICROPROCESSOR
The Real Pro Ultra mechanism constantly feeds information back to the chair’s Position and Force Microprocessor, adjusting its movements based on this feedback. Precision and responsiveness allow the MA73 to faithfully replicate the intricate kneading movements of a variety of expert massage techniques.
MULTIPLE MASSAGE ACTIONS
The MA73 Real Pro Ultra can perform complex junetsu and shiatsu massage movements. Rolling, tapping, kneading, and ultra-slow kneading techniques are also combined in programmed sessions to mimic the touch of human hands, delivering maximum benefit.
INTENSITY SENSING AND ADJUSTMENTS
All of the massage features of the MA73 can be adjusted from very gentle to very firm. Air cell compression intensity and the roller massage intensity are each independently adjustable. You can even program and save your favorite settings for up to three users.
PROFESSIONAL STRETCHING TECHNIQUES
By blending the Real Pro Ultra functions with full-body air cell coverage, the MA73 delivers an impressive suite of stretching movements. These powerfully therapeutic movements (which you’ll find in many of the chair’s programmed sessions) mobilize the spine, promote relaxation, and help improve the flexibility of the lower back, middle back, and neck., Our stretching techniques are perfect for post-workout relaxation or to shake off sleep and stiffness as a morning rejuvenation session.
JUNETSU ULTRA KNEADING: A REAL PRO ULTRA EXCLUSIVE
Junetsu Ultra Kneading massage techniques involve tight, spiral movements that quickly and effectively loosen tight muscles. The target zones benefit from increased blood flow and improvement in the pliability of muscle fibers. Junetsu Ultra Kneading also does an exceptional job relaxing the neck and shoulders to help improve mobility, range of motion, and comfort. These techniques are proprietary and exclusive to Panasonic massage chairs.
Based on traditional Chinese medicine, this Japanese style of massage literally translates to “finger pressure.” As the name suggests, shiatsu massage addresses specific points on the body, often referred to as shiatsu points, pressure points, or acupressure points. The MA73’s body scan, in concert with pressure sensing massage heads, direct force accurately and firmly on shiatsu points.
The Swedish massage style helps to provide overall relaxation and improve circulation while enhancing physical health and mental well-being. The MA73’s Real Pro Ultra mechanism applies gentle pressure and movements to simulate how a massage therapist uses hands and palms to provide the relaxing movements typical of a Swedish massage.
Experience the dazzling variety in circumference, speed, and depth of kneading offered by the MA73. From deep kneading therapy to the most gentle of strokes, MA73’s Real Pro Ultra massage mechanism makes it possible to recreate the trained hands of a massage therapist.
This motion simulates the sensation of hands percussively or gently tapping the back. Rapid tapping invigorates and revitalizes, while slow tapping can help your mind and body drift peacefully and comfortably in deep meditation.
An up-down movement that is as simple as it sounds… that is until you add in the variation of speed, width, and depth that can be achieved by the Real Pro Ultra mechanism. Rolling motions are surprisingly relaxing, and they provide beneficial intersegmental traction and extension to all levels of your back. Regular back mobilization helps promote and maintain the health of spinal discs. The Real Pro Ultra is capable of combining kneading, tapping, and rolling to create a broad spectrum of sensations.

Every massage chair brand we offer on our site is committed to after-sale service of its products. In fact, all the brands we represent do a great job of standing behind the products they sell with great warranties.
Panasonic offers owners a 3-Year Limited Parts and Labor Warranty that covers all manufacturing defects or failures for up to 1,000 hours of use during the warranty period.
The massage “block” (the main mechanism and associated electronics) are also separately covered under a parts warranty for 5 years or 1.000 hours, whichever comes first.
Panasonic offers great service coverage everywhere in the USA.
A 2-Year extension can be attached to the normal 3-year manufacturer warranty. This brings total coverage up to 5 years from the date of purchase. This 5-Year extension is available through us, and a Comfort Consultant can attach it to your purchase. Typically these warranty extensions cost between $250 and $500.
Full manufacturer limited warranty details (legal language, limitations, etc.) can be found on the Panasonic Massage website.
