M.8 Massage Chair and VR Software-Driven Sensory Components Take Technology-Based Wellness and Relaxation to New Heights

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At CES® 2020, OHCO, developers of the world's most meticulously designed and technologically advanced full-body shiatsu massage chairs, in collaboration with Esqapes, the first ever virtual reality (VR) massage center, will showcase how VR technology is changing the concept of what a total massage can be. Demonstrations will take place at CES 2020 OHCO booth # 21066, located in the South Hall 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7-9, 2020.

Esqapes VR software and OHCO M.8 massage chair takes technology-based wellness and relaxation to new heights

During a session at the Esqapes wellness center, an Oculus VR headset and OHCO M.8 massage chair are paired to provide over ten different entrancing environments accompanied by extra-sensory components like sound, heat and scents, resulting in total immersive relaxation. Each of these components are triggered by the VR software and was carefully designed to complement the exotic locale. For example, users feel warmth near their toes and smell clove and cinnamon as they lounge by the fireplace in the 'Snowbank Cabin' environment.

"At Esqapes, our goal is to use beautiful, exotic, VR environments to transport people to another place, as they enjoy their full body massage in the luxurious M.8 massage chair," said Micah Jackson, founder and CEO, Esqapes. "We conducted extensive research and chose the M.8 because it's the epitome of high-quality, and we are excited to work with OHCO at CES to showcase how VR technology and massage therapy can be paired together for the benefit of relaxation and overall wellness."

The M.8 enhances each session at Esqapes by delivering an unrivaled and unequalled singular, transcendent massage experience that is honed to perfection and refined to feel human. Designed by Ken Okuyama, the creative genius behind the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Birdcage, the M.8 massage chair integrates visual refinement, groundbreaking capabilities and is the only chair on the market that incorporates rear-swinging doors to deliver a new level of convenience and accessibility in massage chairs.

"From the inception to the finished product, the OHCO M.8 massage chairs were meticulously designed with the intent to set a new standard of what a luxury massage chair should be," said Cliff Levin, founder and CEO, OHCO. "Together with Esqapes, we are proud to be at the intersection where emerging technology and timeless traditions meet in order to help spearhead the future of health and wellness."
