Infinity IT-8500 Massage Chair
The Infinity IT-8500 massage chair is one of Infinite Therapeutic’s most comprehensive deep tissue massage chairs. There are many high end features to guarantee that you will feel very relaxed with enhanced massage techniques. Infinity delivers high end massage chairs without the high end prices without sacrificing quality. There are many reasons why the IT-8500 is Infinity’s bestselling massage chair.
Special Features of the Infinity IT-8500
The position of Zero Gravity was first developed by NASA in order to relieve compression and tension along the spine during launch. Infinity incorporates this same science into the Infinity IT-8500 massage chair with 2 settings of Zero Gravity. The massage chair will recline while your legs will rise in order to bring your legs to about the level of your heart. This will promote deeper breathing and further relaxation and allow the massage rollers to you with a deeper massage.
The Inversion therapy puts gravity to work for you by placing your body in line with the downward force of gravity. The massage chair will recline further back than the zero gravity position, and using your own body weight as a natural form of traction. The inversion elongates the spine by increasing the space between the vertebrae which relieves the pressure on discs, ligaments and nerve roots. Less pressure means less back pain.
The Infinity IT-8500 massage chair can also help to correct your posture with each massage session through their Tru-Grip V Stretch. This Spinal Correction is modeled after Thai stretching techniques and uses a combination of the hip, seat, and back airbags paired up with the massage roller to stretch and relieve tension in your back.
The seat will swivel and move your hips from side to side in a twisting motion to help massage and stretch the lower back while warming up the hips. This motion helps to relieve pain in the lower back area even if that pain is quite acute. There are 3 levels of speed to cater to your needs and can be turned on independently to add to any massage cycle.
Features of the Infinity IT-8500
The Infinity IT-8500 massage chair comes equipped with a quad style massage roller with a 30” track length that is able to massage your lower lumbar area all the way to your neck. This will accommodate users from 5’1” to 6’4” in height and the 3 width adjustments will fit most body styles. The Quad Style roller which means there are a total of four massage heads which is a common feature in most massage chairs. As the roller moves up and down along your back, it is able to follow the S shape curve of your spine for an accurate and precise massage with 6 adjustable speeds to customize your massage.
Airbag Compression Massage
The Infinity IT-8500 has a total of 38 airbags that are located in the neck pillow, hips, arms, shoulders, seat area, calves, and feet. The Massage Roller can only reach so many parts of your body and the airbags are utilized to massage the rest of your body with a soothing compression massage. Each airbag inflates and deflates to offer a comprehensive full body massage with 5 levels of intensity adjustments. You can control the entire airbag system with the touch of a button.
Body Scan Technology
The Infinity IT-8500 comes standard with extensive body scan technology. This system scans your body to pinpoint the shape of your spine and the location of the curves. This type of technology allows the massage chair to become more versatile and be able to massage most body types and sizes.
There are 4 automatic programs and 6 manual modes to choose from. These programs combine different therapeutic methods with different features all based around the natural benefits of each method. There are also 3 different zone functions to further customize your massage: Back, Partial Back, and Point Massage (see spot massage).

Mechanical Foot Rollers
Foot rollers are one of the main features that helped to put Infinity on the map in the massage chair industry. There are 3 massage rollers on each side with 3 different levels of speed to tailor the massage to your needs. These rollers target the acupoints on the bottom of your feet to provide a great reflexology and deep tissue massage on the soles of your feet.

- Finally a Strong Massage Chair Review by Scotty W.
- Nice and Deep! Review by John N
- Too rough. Actually left bruises on the scapula. Review by Greg
Once the chair arrived, the assembly instructions were vague and left out pertinent information.
Once the chair was assembled, I used the RECOVER mode for 30 minutes and it was not comfortable. The next morning I woke feeling like I had been beaten with a baseball bat. I had bruises on my scapulas and just above the buttocks. I now have a 1" pad on it and it helps.
Had I sat in this chair prior to ordering, I would not have purchased this unit. (Posted on 4/18/2014)
- Great Chair Review by Billw
The only problem that I have had is with the Arm Massage. I contacted Emassagechair to help out, turns out I needed to make a minor adjustment. There was a minor pinch in the airhose from when I put it together. Everything is working great now! (Posted on 1/2/2014)
