Traditionally massage chairs required up to three feet of space available behind the backrest, in order that the chair could be in a full recline. The new "Space Saving Technology" is an innovative function that has been integrated into many of the newest massage chairs. Massage Chairs Wellness is excited to offer a number of chairs using this new technology. With this space saving glide, the chair will slide forward as it reclines. Most require as little as four inches of space from the wall to be able to fully recline. Call us for advice or recommendations (888)-978-5285.
