[su_heading size=”24″]Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon Massage Chair [/su_heading]
Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon is a newly updated 4D massage chair with L-Track and a heated roller mechanism. Osaki’s most popular and innovative 4D massage chair is the OS-Pro Maestro, but the OS-4D Pro Paragon is a revolutionized and improved version of the 4D massage chair. Above all, Paragon is designed with high-tech and luxurious systems, which are voice recording, less space expansion, and heated wheels on the footrest.
In addition, Paragon is designed to customize heating temperatures by the user. Using voice command and easy remote control, the user can easily approach and operate the massage chair without any difficulty.
[su_heading size=”19″]One of the best massage chairs on the market in 2022![/su_heading]
I always wanted a massage chair and finally decided to buy one. After weeks of research and conversations with industry people, I decided on the latest Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair.
After spending time learning about the massage chair industry, it was an eye-opener. I started with a budget of $1,500 and decided that it was worth raising to get the chair I really wanted.
[su_heading size=”19″]Another fantastic addition to the Osaki family![/su_heading]
Of all the massage chair manufacturers I’ve met, Osaki is one of the few that releases new chairs frequently throughout the year. They make changes quickly, improve existing designs, and release new, more innovative units!
When I look at the Pro Paragon, that’s what strikes me. Osaki took a model-based 4D design and improved it a lot!
At first glance, I’m quite impressed. For all it offers and considering its current price, it’s not bad at all! Since you’re probably dying to see what Paragon Pro is all about, let’s dive in and talk about the features!

[su_heading size=”20″]Color Options[/su_heading]
The Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair is available in 4 colors (beige, black, dark gray, and dark brown). I ended up buying the black one and it’s really good. You may check all other options by clicking on the image below:
[su_heading size=”20″]Main features of the Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair[/su_heading]
Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon is designed as an improved high-tech 4D massage technique that massages wider, deeper, and more rhythmically than conventional massage rollers. The 4D massage motor allows for another experience considering the speed and rhythm of the massage.
The Osaki OS-Pro Maestro allows 4 different adjustment levels for the 4D massage. Thanks to the variety of adjustment levels, the user can customize the massage according to their personal preferences. With the Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon massage chair, the user can control the massage experience with 4 4D settings and 5 levels of speed settings.
Unlike other L-rail massage chairs, the Paragon has a multi-angle L-rail feature. It offers multiple angles of an L-shaped massage mechanism, which means the L-shaped roller moves up and down on the hamstring areas. When the massage chair reclines, the other massage chair rollers do not move and offer fixed hamstring rollers, but the Paragon L-rail moves up to provide more massage function. realistic in the area of the hamstrings.
We know what rollers are, but what is a roller track? Think of it as a simple contraption that allows the reels to move from point A to point B. You have a train and a rail that allows a train to move from A to B, similarly, you have a system of rollers and their rollers! matching rails!
However, the Pro Paragon’s 49-inch L-Track is special in that it’s capable of pushing and wrapping around the back of your thighs. In conventional L-lanes this is not possible and coverage is reduced.
Due to its ability to do this, you get maximum massage coverage from the rollers. It really does make a world of difference!
Hot roller massage for the back
The idea was to make the massage chair as “human” as possible. Automatic speed control means the rollers behave in many ways like the human hand of a trained massage therapist. That is, the speed is never constant but always varies according to the course of the massage. In that sense, the 4D chairs were able to provide a massage closer to a human therapist.
This is the evolution of the massage chair in a nutshell! The most advanced rollers you can find today are the 4D.
The Pro Paragon is equipped with 4D rollers. What makes Pro Paragon trainers so special is that they run hot! This is not the first time that Osaki has designed chairs with heated wheels. The Pro Maestro, another 4D chair from Osaki, also has heated wheels.
Why are heated rollers important? What additional benefit do they offer?
The hot rolls are huge if you ask me. The reason I say this is that the application of heat makes the massage even more effective. It makes the muscles less rigid, more flexible, and therefore more flexible. Finally, the application of heat prepares the muscles to receive the massage.
Most massage chairs have heating pads. They work fine, but heated rollers provide a ton of extra coverage because the heat is applied wherever the rollers go.
Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon has the most advanced rear heating system. The rear heated roller allows for a much larger heating surface.
Heating on Foot Rollers
There are rotating reflexology rollers located under the footrest that provide a relaxing massage. As the rollers spin, they stimulate heat therapy around the feet, providing light to strong pressure and a warm condition to relax and reduce fatigue.
The skates of the Pro Paragon also heat up. The bottom of the footrest is equipped with rotating reflexology rollers responsible for massaging the soles of the feet, the toes, and the heels of the feet.
The techniques used are primarily kneading and rolling, although adjacent air pockets help support the feet and also provide a compression massage. What sets the Pro Paragon foot casters apart from other chairs is that they are heated. Most chairs don’t have heat in the foot area, and if they do, it’s usually more common to see heating pads rather than heated rollers.
Heated roller skates are more effective than traditional heating pads if you ask me!
Under the feet are rotating reflexology rollers to provide an excellent foot massage. The underfoot rollers will run along the sides and midfoot for a more convenient kneading experience. With the foot rollers, the calf part will swell with the right amount of pressure, then begin a calf kneading massage. Allowing the calf part to provide a kneading motion will increase blood flow to the legs, helping them achieve a higher level of relaxation.
Above the leg rest, air massagers rotate in circular motions to add a new dimension to your calf massage. For the foot part, additional components have been added to stretch and massage the arch and heel of the foot. The experience is unlike any other.
The calf, bridge, knee, and heel massager are great added features. Specifically, the upper part of the largest will activate the air massage so that your calves rotate in a circular motion. Personally, I would recommend wearing pants as the airbags can squeeze your calves and cause pain when circling.
At the bottom of the leg rest, you can stretch and massage the arch and heel of your foot. It provides excellent massage of legs and feet.
I certainly like this feature and find it very comfortable because you can adjust the intensity. Therefore, I would recommend wearing socks if the pressure is too much.
Automatic leg extension and covered footrest
The beanbag will scan the legs to ensure the ideal leg length for the size of the wearer. The foot component automatically extends and retracts 8.7 inches. Simply apply pressure with your feet to signal to the leg scanner that the length is in the desired and comfortable position for a better massage.
The remote control also allows you to automatically adjust the leg component to extend or retract based on the user’s customizable needs. In addition, the footrest is covered on the toes, which warms the feet during the massage. Warming up the feet stimulates an improvement in blood circulation.
Body Scan Technology
The OS-4D Pro Paragon will perform a body scan to map key areas of the neck and back to ensure the optimal amount of pressure is applied during the massage. The scanning technology will detect the height of the shoulder, which can be recalibrated once the scan is complete.
The Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon is advertised to perform a body scan to map key areas of the neck and back. In addition, the massage chair will be able to determine the appropriate pressure to apply. Personally, I’m not sure how effective it is.
So the only indicator I have is that the remote will show a “body scan” popup when I switch to certain programs and there will be a motion indicating the massage rollers are calibrating and adjusting. But it is not enough for me to provide an evaluation. Therefore, I cannot provide a score.
The Paragon offers a Zero Gravity feature that brings the knees up above the chest and optimizes blood flow to help the user stay more relaxed. By lying in a weightless position, virtually the entire weight of your back is supported by the backrest, maximizing the intensity of the massage.
In this position in which the knees are brought above the chest, you will optimize the blood circulation to further relax your body. The user can find the most convenient and diverse preferences of the weightless system for you.
Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon has zero gravity function. The knees are brought above the chest in Zero Gravity, which promotes blood flow. According to the NASA space capsule relaxation theory, it increases the strength of the body and the massage chair. This involves helping to reduce pressure on the heart and spine, allowing for the ultimate relaxation experience.
I particularly prefer Zero Gravity and find it very relaxing in nature. The same way you would be lying down when a real person massages you. This is an added benefit, as suggested above. I definitely like massages in the Zero Gravity position much better.
The default number of positions for the massage chair is between 1 and 3. It looks that the Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon is listed as 1. However, I wanted to make this clear because I wasn’t so sure when buying. While the massage chair has 1 zero-gravity position, it can be tilted and three multi-angle sections can be adjusted. Users can adjust the backrest and leg rest according to their needs. This is a very nice feature and it gives the user many positions to enjoy the massages.
The space-saving function is one of the crucial functions for the massage chair user who wants to maximize the space in the house. The massage chair expands space during weightlessness, but the OS-4D Pro Paragon saves up to 3.15 inches of wall space. Don’t worry about the size of the area anymore, because the massage chair enlarges the space of the house.
What is space-saving?
This is a simple feature designed to allow people to install massage chairs in tight spaces without a lot of free wall space.
Here’s how it works: just as the chair tilts back, it also slides forward on a base. This forward sliding motion allows us to position a chair much closer to a wall without having to worry about bumps when tilting it. For the Pro Paragon, the space required between the backrest and the wall is just 3.15 inches.
The Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon is a real space saver compared to other full-sized massage chairs. It only requires 3 inches of clearance from the wall and 20 inches from the footrest.
Important: space-saving considers only the free space between the backrest and the wall. Does not consider/improve anything else! You should always carefully ensure that you have enough space at the front and sides.
Several speakers surround the headrest. The Bluetooth wireless music player can integrate music into synchronized massage therapy techniques, allowing the rollers to massage you to the beat of the music. Relaxing with music therapy will help the user’s blood and relieve fatigue.
The Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon has speakers in the left and right armrests near the head area. Overall, the quality is mediocre at best. I wouldn’t say the sound is something to brag about. However, it will work well for relaxing music.
It’s very easy to set up by turning on Bluetooth on your phone and pairing it as you normally would with any other Bluetooth device. There’s also a USB slot near the armrest that you can plug your phone into to charge while getting a massage.
Voice recognition means you can give voice commands!
This is Pro Paragon’s most marketed feature and Osaki showcases it in all of their promotional videos. It’s definitely a nice feature and I can see how it can be useful.
If you’re sitting in a massage chair and need to adjust something, you usually have to lean forward, grab the remote, and make the change. This often results in the massage stops.
A better alternative I have found is to operate the massage chair from a smartphone (most massage chairs have this feature). However, this also causes a bit of trouble because you still need to adjust your phone’s settings. Certainly, the least disturbing method is being able to control the chair through speech/voice.
The Paragon Pro takes a big step in this direction by having voice recognition. It has a built-in microphone that can recognize and understand up to 9 different phrases such as massage chair stop, pain relief, weightless start, etc.
While this list of 9 may not be all we need, it is still a very positive step towards improving the performance of your massage chair. As I said before, the main goal is to make operations as uninterrupted as possible. If we are looking to mimic the real thing (ie human massage) this is of the utmost importance!
Remote LED and remote pocket
The Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon features a detailed LED display with easy-to-control buttons that make it easy to navigate through the massage chair’s various functions. The LED display shows where the rollers are, which part of the body is heated, weightlessness, or various massage functions. The buttons can be easily navigated through the menu to select neck/shoulder, lower back, auto, manual, advanced, or air massage. The massage timer can be set from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.
The Osaki OS-4D Pro Paragon includes a wired LED remote control and leaves a lot to be desired. Although the remote has many menu options, it will take some getting used to. The user manual explains very little about how to use the remote and the remote does not light up in the dark making it hard to see. Then there’s also the beep that you can’t turn off. So there is a beep each time you press a button on the remote.
In general, it will provide you with everything you need to control the massage chair. I would prefer a wireless remote, but on the plus side, you won’t lose it because it’s attached to the massage chair. It’s a matter of personal preference.
All massages will be programmed with a default timer of 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or 30 minutes. You can extend your massages by returning to the menu on the remote control and selecting the desired duration again.
13 self-massage programs
There are a total of 13 self-massage programs. Recovers relieve, stretch, soften, renew calm, and special. While the “Special” program, there are Refreshment, Energy, Revive, Active, Relax, and Healing.
The names of the programs are not very clear; the user manual does not go into detail about what each program does. For example, I don’t know what is the difference between Recover and Revive.
By spending time testing each program, they are all unique with a combination of Kneading, Knocking Tapping, Shiatsu, and Kneading & Tapping and Stretching massage techniques. However, you’ll just need to spend some time figuring out what you prefer. All are great programs in their own right.
One of my favorite features of the Osaki Pro Paragon 4D massage chair is its manual programs. In addition, it allows occasional or partial massages. I can work on a specific area of my body for as long as I need. In addition, there are manual settings such as airbag intensity settings, 5 levels of massage intensity, speed and 4 levels of 4D massage intensity. You can also turn the heat and rollers on or off.
Now for the negative, the manual program menu is not so intuitive for users, speaking of personal opinion. If you wanted to integrate 4D massage, you had to leave the screen and go back and select 4D+ from the menu. Then return to the program to make sure the 4D reels have started. It will take some getting used to before you can figure out how to use the manual function.
These are second-generation airbags. In other words, it is multi-layered and stitched together. In addition, it allows a firmer and very durable grip. It is equipped with many inflatable cushions which provide full-body massage by an inflatable cushion. In addition, you can adjust the intensity, to up to 5 levels.
This is one of the massage chair’s best features in my opinion. There is also a specific program for stretching. Allows hip twist and leg and back extension (bridge). You can feel it especially when the massage chair pulls on your feet.
[su_heading size=”24″]A great massage chair for the price.[/su_heading]
The Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair is a fantastic massage chair. It has many basic features that a $10,000 massage chair would have. You will experience premium massages and I am extremely happy with this purchase. If you compare prices, most 4D massage chairs cost between $8,000 and $10,000. The Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon is a great buy because it’s a premium 4-D massage chair without the $10,000 price tag.
Of course, there are compromises. The chair lacks some of the bells and whistles that many enthusiasts would drool over. Things like more automated programs, some up to 34 different types. They will still use the different massage techniques (kicks, taps, etc.), but in different schedule variations.
A more expensive massage chair can also support more body types, and knowing who will use the chair eliminates the use of such flexibility. More expensive chairs may also have better sound quality, more USB ports, and chromotherapy. Personally, I wouldn’t use all these extra features to justify spending so much money. For a similar chair, with the added bells and whistles, you should consider the Osaki OS-4D Pro Maestro.
[su_heading size=”24″]What distinguishes the Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon from the competition?[/su_heading]
Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair is like other massage chairs, it has many movement mechanisms and makes noise when operating. However, compared to some of the others I’ve sat at, it’s not the loudest.
What makes the Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair a great all-around massage chair is the quality of massages it offers. It focuses more on massage quality and less on “nice-to-have” features. So if you care about a great massage experience, that’s what this massage chair will offer. Offers great massages, from head to toe. I noticed that the user manual listed the head rollers, but nowhere did Osaki mention that there were head massagers.
Surprisingly, I felt the rollers in the center of my head during “Recovery” mode and was pleased with their performance. Maybe that would have been the “neck” for taller people? I’m not sure but I’m of average height and the rollers stopped in the middle of my head and gave me a very relaxing massage. Also, auto-scan technology should have been used here.
[su_heading size=”26″]Final Verdict[/su_heading]
Another great advantage of the Osaki Pro OS-4D Paragon massage chair is that it is made by a company you can trust. Osaki Titan has been in the industry for many years and is backed by a very strong warranty. Previously, before choosing the Osaki Pro Paragon, I had my eye on the RELAXONCHAIR chairs. In particular, their latest MK-ION chair, which is 3D for $2,999. It appeared to be comparatively equal in functionality to more expensive chairs and had many strong reviews on Amazon.I have no doubt they are decent chairs, with a 3-year warranty, but I couldn’t stand an offline brand spending over $3000. Of course, the money you pay goes towards receiving quality support years later when the massage chair starts having problems. Although I am sure that RELAXONCHAIR will start to gain traction and become a serious player in the market. I was more comfortable with a company that’s been in the game for as long as Osaki. RELXONCHAIR gets an honorable mention because they’ve done a great job with some of their chairs so far. Therefore, many seem satisfied with their product and at a fair price.
