The Fujimi EP8800 massage chair delivers an impressive all-over body massage, with 53 airbags, 8 automatic massage programs, heat & magnetic therapy functions and Thai-style ‘scraping’ foot massage. Simple to use, though definitely on the more expensive side; it’s a massage chair that delivers excellent results.
Fujimi EP8800 features
There are a lot of great features included in the EP8800, almost too many to list. So we’ve highlighted just a few of the many features that customers really seem to enjoy. If you are looking to find out more you can take a look at the brochure for the Fujimi EP8800.
8 Massage programs
There are a wide variety of automatic massage programs available on the Fujimi EP8800, which is another major selling point of the chair. Each program is tailored to a specific user; with options including the ‘Rush Group’ for those looking to relax after a day in the office, the ‘Old Age Group’ for mature users, the ‘Labor Group’ for people requiring an intense massage after hard physical work, and the ‘Student Group’ to relieve tension associated with studying.
The Fujimi EP8800’s air-pressure system for the legs, arms and hands is a real stand-out feature. It adds a great deal of flexibility in the massage experience, allowing the intensity to be adjusted to suit the user. There are airbags positioned at the back and the buttocks to specifically target these areas too. With 53 airbags in total, this ensures an exceptionally thorough body massage.
Magnetic & heat therapy function
Magnetic therapy is a natural treatment, and often linked with boosted blood flow and pain relief. The Fujimi EP8800 massage chair uses eight 300cc magnets positioned at the calf muscles to stimulate circulation. It also uses infrared heat to relax the muscles, which is a welcome additional feature.
Thai foot massage
One of this massage chair’s most enjoyable functions is the Thai foot massage. Advanced roller technology is used to effectively scrape the foot along the sole, easing out tension in the muscles and helping to relieve pain and aching in the foot.
Intelligent massage hands
The Fujimi EP8800 massage chair is designed using ‘3D intelligent massage technology’. What this essentially means is that the chair features ‘hands’ which are designed to recreate the effect of a massage, kneading, squeezing, pushing, swinging and twisting where required.
- Easy-to-use manual control system
- 8 automatic massage programs
- Magnetic and heat therapy
- Waist stretch function, to help prevent nerve pressure in the spine
- Thai foot massage
- Multiple airbags for in-depth full-body massage
- Upper body massage, including upper arms, chest and shoulders
- Range of stimulation, including kneading, shiatsu, tapping and knocking
- Choice of 3 colors
- No music function
- Set-up instructions tricky to understand, but illustrations do help
This massage chair has an impressive variety of features. However, there are a few notable absences in the design. For example, despite its cost, the Fujimi EP8800 doesn’t offer full body scan technology to assess the shape of the person using it, which is surprising. Whilst this doesn’t affect the overall performance, it is a useful feature, and one that the Osaki OS-7075R, a close competitor, does have.
The Fujimi EP8800 certainly isn’t the heaviest massage chair on the market, but weighing in at around 280lb, it’s not lightweight. This isn’t a problem if you’re planning to keep it in one location, but it can be awkward if you plan to move it around a lot. The iJoy 2580 is a lighter option and weighs around 150lb less.
What customers think about the Fujimi EP8800 massage chair
Overall, people who have invested in the Fujimi EP8800 seem very happy with their purchase, though many do comment on the price-tag. However, they generally seem to be in agreement that the extra expenditure is well worth it.
Most reviews online focus on the airbags, which are a defining feature of this massage chair. The fact that the pressure can be adjusted is a major advantage, and one user highlights that they’re ‘effective’ and do ‘exactly what they should do.’ The Thai foot massage function is also popular, as are the stretching features. A customer reports that one of his friends ‘hurt his back that morning’ and that the ‘back stretcher mode fixed his back,’ which highlights the chair’s effectiveness.
Style is also a key aspect of the Fujimi EP880 massage chair, which regularly gets compared to First Class seating in an airplane. A user also comments that ‘the blue LED lights are cool.’

Who the Fujimi EP8800 is for
With its multiple features, intuitive ‘massage hands’ functionality and extensive range of programs, the Fujimi EP8800 certainly isn’t for the casual user. It’s designed for those who want to regularly enjoy the benefits of a professional level body massage, and who are comfortable with paying the accompanying price-tag.
Primarily, the chair is well suited for those seeking relief from tension after a stressful day at the office, or those who want to help safeguard against muscular or spinal problems in the future. However, with the ability to customize the massage, it’s also well suited for those with aching or tension in specific body locations.
It’s a high quality piece of equipment, and will appeal to those looking to invest in state-of-the-art technology. In short, when purchasing this chair, you may feel like you’re paying a lot, but most importantly, you’ll feel as though it was worth the extra cost.
Who the Fujimi EP8800 is NOT for
This chair, whilst offering a range of automatic programs suited for all ages, genders and lifestyles, is not going to appeal to someone simply looking for a cheap, functional model. It’s designed for the serious massage connoisseur, not for customers seeking novelty value. The Fujimi EP8800 and the similarly priced Panasonic EP-MA73 are some of the most expensive chairs on the market.
The Fujimi EP8800 is an impressive massage chair, with a range of features and programs to appeal to virtually everyone. The ability to adjust intensity enables users to tailor their massage to suit their needs; and they can also focus on particular areas of the body. Features such as the Thai foot massage, magnetic therapy and ‘massage hands’ also help to establish this as a formidable model on the market.
Although the EP8800 is certainly not the cheapest model available, it’s priced to reflect its advanced features. As a result, it’s not an entry-level massage chair, but a chair deliberately designed to provide professional massage results for serious users.
