It was built using an intelligent and sensual massage system that gives you relief from stress, muscle tension, or soreness, and ultimate pain relief using a hyper SL-track massage system.

Technology Features

The massage features on the Kahuna HM-Kappa are great, but the available tech is what really makes for a unique chair massage experience. The chair takes advantage of special automated stretching programs that twist and stretch your muscles for yoga-like relief. Everything is controlled by an easy-to-use touchscreen tablet that uses a backlit light for total control in any lighting conditions.

Being made of the most premium external materials and internal components are two factors that give the Kahuna HM-Kappa a five-star rating here. The ultimate factor though is that it comes with a lengthy 5-year warranty, whereas other similar massage chairs are known for coming with a warranty that lasts for only 2 to 3 years. Having those extra years of added peace of mind area great bonus.

With a price of $9,499, we had to rate the Kahuna HM-Kappa at three stars for value. It does come loaded with a bunch of great features and new technology, but the price is fairly average when you compare it against other 4D massage chairs with similar features.
