Taking It Up A Notch With The New OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王)
Last year I had a lot of fun looking at OSIM’s Christmas delights and many of their relaxing pampering goodies have become favorites in our household. Anytime I feel the neck tightness mounting from hours of sitting in front of the laptop, instead of popping a pill I can now pop on the uScalp to massage away that tension. Perfect!
So it was with considerable enthusiasm that I attended OSIM’s latest product launch event for the remarkable OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王) massage chair. I knew we would be in for a treat, but the evening OSIM had prepared for us completely blew away my expectations!
Being a local brand, it made sense that OSIM welcomed us with a spread of delectable goodies from other local brands. Hubby was enjoying himself munching on moreish Laksa and Cereal Prawn flavored cookies by Old Seng Choong while I enjoyed sipping on some delicately scented TWG teas and canapés.
OSIM had set up two themed zones for us to enjoy before the event began proper.
In the Lifestyle Zone, I enjoyed some blissful hand massages with products from Sabon and experimented with scents to create the perfect fragrance for my home courtesy of Oo La Lab. If only chemistry classes in school were this enjoyable!
Finally in the Experience Zone, I came face to face with the star of the show, the OSIM uLove 2 massage chair! I was immediately struck by the lovely hand crafted peony flower design on the body of the chair that would surely look gorgeous in any home!
For OSIM, however, this was just the start of the evening! Things were about to really take off!
With my favorite gal Cindy, I was escorted to a check-in counter and issued a boarding pass for a first class flight onboard ‘OSIM Airlines’.
You heard right, OSIM Airlines! This wasn’t a real flight of course, but a fabulously lavish setup to allow us to really experience the first class luxury the OSIM uLove 2 can offer.
After check-in, we were each greeted by our very own personal flight attendant who would be taking care of us for the entire duration of the flight. I’m pictured here with Helen, my chaperone for the night.
After a brief wait in OSIM’s VIP first class lounge, we were ready to board our flight! We were all awed by the attention to detail as we found ourselves walking through rows of chairs akin to a real flight, albeit a lot more luxurious. Think spa in the sky and you’ll be on the right track.
My personal flight attendant, Helen, guided me to my seat, which of course happened to be the super luxurious OSIM uLove 2 massage chair, and after an announcement from our pilot, the flight to OSIM Paradise was ready to take off! Woohoooo!!
Helen made sure my every need was meticulously attended to, ensuring I was just the right temperature, that I was comfortable and I could hear quiet muffled whispers all around me, the sounds of other flight attendants taking care of their guests.
As I sank into the plush quilted leather of the OSIM uLove 2 massage chair, I was encapsulated in soothing ambient background music while a heated sleeping eye mask soothed my strained peepers. This flight into nirvana was really taking off!
Now this chair is one smart cookie, rather than just subject me to a standard massage for all, it actually started to calibrate itself to my body by detecting the position of my shoulders and joints to ensure the massage would be perfectly tuned to my body.
As the massage started, I could immediately feel the tension being eased out of my stiff joints. After a visit to the hair salon earlier in the day, I had been nursing a seriously stiff neck and could feel a migraine creeping up on me. I need not have worried though, as the OSIM uLove 2 did its magic, I could really feel my stiff neck dissolve away. I was in heaven!
The massage felt very different to anything I had experienced on previous massage chairs, applying pressure to multiple different areas, it felt a lot more comprehensive and also a lot more like what you might come to expect from a professional masseuse.
I also came to realize that this was not just a massage chair but more like an all-in-one relaxation and personal entertainment center.
With speakers embedded into the sofa on either side of your head, you can enjoy wireless Bluetooth 3D music from your phone or even enjoy your favorite movies with cinema like surround sound, while an entertainment stand holds your phone or tablet so you don’t have to. You can even use the OSIM uLove 2 app to control the massage settings, sync new massage programs and download music tailored to complement your relaxing massage session.
Of course no flight would be complete without in-flight dining. Our courteous and attentive personal flight attendants served us some fine refreshments to leave no first class stone unturned on this journey to OSIM Paradise!
Alas, all good things must come to an end. As the flight touched down I felt refreshed and invigorated, something I’ve never felt coming out of a real flight.
In true jet-setter style, the pilot announced our safe arrival at our exotic paradise destination with local time and outside temperature before we disembarked the flight! It was so real I was worried I was going to be asked to fill in an immigration form before leaving the plane! 😛
I might have been wondering whether an OSIM uLove2 was worth it before the flight, but after the event, all I could think of was where in my house it should go!
But before the evening came to a close, OSIM had one more ace up its sleeve!
We were guided to mysterious room where there was time for one last big reveal! The identity of the celebrity endorser for the OSIM uLove 2 in Asia.
Who would be worthy to be the face of the heavenly good OSIM uLove 2 massage chair?
Well it was no other than the Heavenly King himself, Andy Lau!
Now this makes more sense as it explains the official tagline of the massage chair, 4手天王, which literally means Four-Hand Heavenly King, paying homage to Andy Lau’s longstanding Heavenly King title. We were shown a promo reel starring the man himself and then introduced to the signature Andy Lau edition of the OSIM uLove 2 chair featuring an embroidered emblem on the headrest cushion and a special magnolia design on the outer body, the ideal marriage of form and function.
We also finally learnt why the massage from the OSIM uLove 2 indeed feels so special.
The OSIM uLove 2 is the first massage chair in the world to offer a 4-hand massage! The chair has four sets of powerful massage rollers and technology which mimics the type of four-handed massage you would expect from two synchronized skilled expert masseuses.
Double the effectiveness, double the results and double the pampering! Yay!
On top of all this, the chair also uses intelligent V-Hand 720 degree roller balls that perfectly emulate the grip and feel of a real masseuse’s hand to ease every knot and release all your aches and strains all over your body, taking the entire experience to a whole new level.
This revolutionary massage technology is the brainchild of Japanese chiropractic massage expert, Sato Tsuyoshi and OSIM to address the common aches and pains of modern living such as the “Text Neck” syndrome from frequent mobile phone usage and tired legs from prolonged standing. Well, I can certainly relate to that! Haha!
Without further ado, please allow me to introduce to you, Sato Tsuyoshi san! He expertly explains how the OSIM uLove 2 delivers a well-choreographed and perfectly-harmonised massage to help us relieve these aches and relax in the comfort of our own home.
Hope the video gave you a clearer picture of how the OSIM uLove 2 works. Seriously, it’s the best massage I’ve enjoyed in a long time. Here’s Cindy and I giving our full account about our experience in the OSIM Airlines. Look out for this promo video in the OSIM stores soon!
B asked me which is more relaxing, sitting in a hot tub or sitting in the OSIM uLove 2? It was a close call, but not needing to clear up afterwards gives the edge to the OSIM uLove 2!
All that I need to know now is whether I’ve been a good enough girl to ask Santa for one this Christmas?! 😛
The OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王) is available now at various locations – roadshows, online and OSIM outlets at SGD6699.
Have fun and keep sparkling you guys!
