The Best Massage Chair I Have Ever Tried : OSIM uLove 2


dsc_3392There’s nothing quite like your own massage chair after a long, hard day at work. All you want to do is sit back and relax after dinner. There are good massage chairs and then there are massage chairs that can take you to another dimension of bliss like the new OSIM uLove 2 which is quite outstanding. Members of the media were invited to try out this chair during several sessions at The Oval, 1 Utama today. I chose the earliest session at 11 am.

After some refreshments, we were ushered into a ‘departure lounge’ as if we were waiting to board our flight. The ‘cabin’ was dimly lit and very spacious with 15 OSIM uLove 2 Massage Chairs for everyone to have their own personal space. OSIM uLove 2 features the revolutionary 4-Hand Massage Technology.

dsc_3394dsc_3395dsc_3396At first, I wasn’t used to the kneading and rolling on my back but after a while, I settled down and relaxed. So what exactly is this 4-Hand Massage Technology? It boasts 4 sets of powerful massage rollers designed to work in sync to massage your upper and lower body concurrently. This mechanism mimics the four-handed massage technique practiced my masseur/masseuse in most countries in Southeast Asia.

This is complemented by the V-Hand™ Massage that perfectly emulates the techniques and the flexibility of a masseuse’s hand. It perfectly executes grips that are akin to a human hand to extract deep-seated knots. The 720° roller balls are able to rotate 360° in both directions and help reach the more challenging contours of the human body.

What made the massage more memorable and enjoyable was the warm air that I could feel as I was being pampered in that chair. From my head to my back to my buttocks, thighs and feet, every part of my body felt like it was being given the royal treatment in massage.

Once again, Asia’s perennial pop icon, Andy Lau (who was the spokesperson for OSIM’s first uDivine massage chair in 2010) has been handpicked to be the ambassador of uLove 2. When it comes to aesthetics, the uLove 2 Massage Chair exhibits an outstanding workmanship with the incorporation of high quality, quilted leatherette that comes in an array of chic colours.

The uLove 2 limited edition massage chair’s signature blue colour is a flawless depiction of a vibrant blue sky adorned with hand painted peonies on each side especially commissioned for this launch, complemented by the royal crest. Since ancient times, the peony motif has been recognised as a symbol of fortune and beauty. The limited edition massage chair also comes in a signature pink colour. Other available colours include Bold Green, Sophisticated Brown and Chic Purple. Each of these shades is selected to perfectly complement the hand painted Magnolia blooms design – a symbol of nobility and purity – that embellish the sides of the chair.

OSIM uLove 2 Massage Chair is priced at RM20,888 (introductory RM377 per month).
