Let’s talk about Fujiiryoki massage chairs


The Fujiiryoki brand of massage chairs has been present on the global market for several decades. In fact, it was in the factories of this brand that the world’s first massage chair was created, and later models have continued to dominate the market and win the trust of an ever-increasing number of customers. Below, Paweł tells us what has appealed to customers all over the world for many years now and what sets it apart from other models.

Pioneer of massage chair manufacturing

Fujiiryoki is the first brand in the world to develop a massage chair and put it into mass production. This first model was developed by Nobuo Fujimoto in 1954. After several attempts using boards, baseballs, bicycle chains or even handlebars, the “Fujiiryoki Automatic Massage Machine” was created. The prototype of today’s massage chairs was made of wood and offered only the kneading of the back. Interestingly, when plugged in, it still works and is one of the attractions of the Fujiiryoki factory in Osaka.

Powerful holding company and the manufacturer of massage chairs

Upon the creation of the first model, Nobuo Fujimoto established the Fujiiryoki Company in Hannamancho, Abeno-ku, Osaka as the ‘Fujiiryoki Workshop’. Nowadays, this large Japanese company, part of the billion-dollar Johnson Health Tech Group and Asahi Holding, is constantly at the forefront of setting trends in massage chair manufacturing and beyond. Massage chairs are part of the giant holding company, which currently employs more than 700 people. 

What’s important, despite its huge commercial reach, Fujiiryoki maintains its values and traditions, offering massage chairs of excellent design. Each successive model proposes new solutions that directly translate into comfort, precision and quality of massage. The company has also spread the unique ‘Japanese massage chair culture’ and has contributed to improving the lifestyle and health of many people.

Fujiiryoki brand here at Rest Lords

The Fujiiryoki brand has been available in our product range for many years now. We started with the EC1700 and EC3700 models, then there was the EC2800 and EC3800. Until a few years ago, however, the JP1000 was available for sale, which featured massage that combined more than 60 massage programmes, a precise scanning system and a fully relaxing deep muscle massage. We are now pleased to sell Fujiiryoki’s state-of-the-art chair, the JP2000. It is the first chair in the world to use the Artificial Intelligence Algorithm for an even better reproduction of the movement of the human hand, and thus a more effective and relaxing massage.

– Paweł, we are standing next to chairs by Fujiiryoki, as far as I know, it’s world’s top model, but what is the difference between these chairs and the rest available on the market?

– Just like you’ve said, it’s the world’s high-end product. The difference is huge. Let’s start with the fact that this is the Fujiiryoki, a Japanese brand, manufactured in Osaka since 1954. It’s where the equipment is assembled, produced entirely, every component, so in this case the Fujiiryoki factory has maintained this overall impression, this opinion of Japanese quality. We are talking here about excellent production, perfection, quality of workmanship, precision, attention to detail, commitment to make it long-lasting, so that the massage technique best meets the needs of our clients. We are talking about Japanese equipment, extremely refined, perfect workmanship.

We also know what they look like inside, what the mechanisms look like, how they are connected, how they are arranged in a box – there is not a gram of Styrofoam there, each cap has its own number to blend in properly with the appropriate side. This Japanese perfection, the quality of workmanship, is the absolute top, high-end. It should also be mentioned that Fujiiryoki is a global brand – it is not that it is only in Europe and Japan, it’s a brand that is on the very top of the global massage chairs market. It is an indicator of quality trends.
What are its main features? Let’s start with the scanning systems. They have an extremely sophisticated mechanism that massages the back from the neck to the upper parts of the buttocks. However, it starts with scanning, so these systems in the latest models are now based on the artificial intelligence algorithm, thanks to which it adjust to the line of the spine extremely precisely, to your height, so whether it’s you or your wife, it scans the spine line perfectly in the morning or evening and selects the right massage program, the pressure and place of operation according to that scan.

Secondly, the number of functions. You should know that in these chairs there are as many as 40 massage techniques that we can use.

– But are we able to use that many massage techniques?Of course you are. It gives you variety, freedom, it gives you the opportunity to experience a different massage each time. Suppose we have some sore parts of the body such as the chest section. So we can turn the kneading up, down, to the sides, operate the massager in different planes, and at exactly the right points to achieve the best effect. And every technique is a new experience. This amount allows you to discover this chair anew again and again, each time finding some new options. You test these functionalities for a month or two weeks, learn or get used to the kneading function, and then you discover shiatsu and that’s another neat function. The number of these possibilities positively contributes to the fact that this chair won’t bore you and we’re sure that that all the tensions can be removed and you can relax properly.
Moving on, these chairs offer an extensive range of intensity adjustment, as there are 12 degrees of adjustment of the back pressure level, so we can match the intensity to our personal needs. If someone needs gentle, relaxing massage, they can choose the lower levels and enjoy a calm massage even before going to bed. And if somebody needs stronger massage, we had marathon runners who needed a really strong muscle relaxation, then level as high as 12 is most suitable in the lying position. That level of intensity is not often seen even in massage parlours. And this intensity adjustment gives you this freedom whether its a child or your wife or yourself, you can set the level that is safe and suits individual needs. 

So we have the scanning, the abundance of functions, we have the possibility to regulate the intensity, but it should also be noted that just like the rest of the market, these represent the more relaxing chairs, of course you can use them preventively, so here we get very close to a good imitation of the human hand, manual massage, and we’re already very much in the spheres where the massage has specific, tangible effects, coming closer to healing, because here we experience the massage of deep muscles. Not only do we massage the top layer of our muscles, but this chair, through the applied pressure, through the techniques it uses, is also able to massage the muscles and tissues lying deeper, it also extremely relaxes, simply works wonders. It’s worth noting that this equipment is medically certified in Japan, so it’s also an indication of the direction in which the massage in the massage chairs is going.

The absolute high-end of the world market, a massage that is unprecedented in any other model in the world.
