Human Touch Super Novo Massage Chair Review & Massage Chair Alternatives


As Human Touch’s latest — and highest end — model of massage chair, the Super Novo boasts several unique features, including cold-touch acupressure, high-end Altec Lansing speakers and a Virtual Therapist powered by Amazon’s Alexa voice AI.

All those features also make the Super Novo the most expensive chair that Human Touch offers. Are all those features worth the investment, or could an alternative massage chair provide similar relief for a lower cost?

Read on to learn more about the Human Touch Super Novo massage chair and whether it’s the right fit for you.

Human Touch Massage Chairs Brand Overview

Having developed massage chairs for over 40 years, Human Touch owns several unique patents on massage chair designs and features. Based out of Long Beach, California, they’re a subsidiary of Interactive Health, Inc. and produce a series of innovative massage chairs, recliners and other wellness solutions.

As a company, Human Touch promotes full-body health alongside aesthetic appeal. Their massage chairs have won awards for design excellence. Human Touch massage chairs are manufactured in China.

The Human Touch Super Novo Massage Chair

The Super Novo is Human Touch’s top premium chair. Its most distinguishing feature is the first ever “virtual therapist” powered by Alexa. After you voice activate the assistant, Alexa will ask you a series of questions, including your physical requirements and massage preferences. From there you can ask for a massage with a simple voice command.

As for the quality of the massage itself, it’s what you’d expect from a luxury massage chair. The Super Novo’s 4D massage adds variable speeds to the vertical, horizontal and variable pressure of the 3D massage process. The Super Novo design features a combined S- and L-track that offers coverage from the neck down to the glutes while following the natural curvature of the spine.

The Super Novo has a good number of features, including cold touch acupressure and a full body stretch. Users can choose from a wide variety — 38 in total — of auto-wellness programs. As a larger chair, its design comfortably fits a wide variety of body types. The Altec Lansing speakers are notable for their high-quality and clear sound.

There’s a few minor annoyances with the Super Novo. While the fingertip controls can be convenient, they really don’t provide a lot of options for immediate control. Users will need to use the remote control or activate the virtual assistant to access some options. Some reviews also report that the interface is unintuitive and difficult to use. Finally, the Super Novo fully embraces the pod-style design, which can be a divisive look for some.

The Super Novo lists a maximum weight capacity of 285 pounds and will fit users between 5’0” and 6’9”.
