Features of Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair
The Osaki OS 4000 Massage Chair is available for $1699.00, making it a relatively affordable massage chair. It also comes with many different features that make the price well-worth it.
Here are some of the main features of the massage chair:
Zero Gravity Mode
The main feature of the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair is the zero gravity mode. It must be pretty important since they put it in the name. Thankfully, it lives up to the billing. Zero gravity mode is super cool.
With a simple button press on the built-in remote control, you get whisked away to a place of pure relaxation and bliss. The chair automatically reclines, lifts your feet, and begins its air massage. The result leaves you cradled feeling as though you really are floating on a cloud. This mode is not an intense muscle pounding massage but rather a calming mode that allows you to nap, meditate, or read in absolute tranquility.
Air Massage Technology
One of the best features of the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair is the Dynamic Squeeze Air Massage. This is the part of the whole that makes the zero gravity mode truly feel zero G. The Dynamic Squeeze Air Massage utilized 42 individual air cells that inflate and deflate all over your body giving you a calming air massage. The cells are dotted throughout the entire chair from your feet all the way up to your shoulders.
This chair utilizes a large array of massage features to create a full service machine. The Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage chair comes with eight pre-programmed massages that are designed to mimic the kinds of massages you would receive at a spa. With the simple press of a button, you can get one of a variety of different sessions that range from a few minutes to full length. These aren’t generic copy-paste massages either, they are all very different from one another.
The eight included massages are full body, stress relief, back relief, energize, stretch, all air, soothe, and sleep. As you can see, you not only get soothing massages, you also get some more aggressive massages as well as unique options like a stretch massage. These massage options are not just fun to try out, they can really affect your overall health. Massage Magazine detailed major ways that massage helps with chronic pain including back pain, headaches, and even fibromyalgia.
Full body scan and massage
Some traditional massage chairs are simply recliners that feature some cheap rollers and a vibrating seat. They are less massage than chair but that is not what you get here. The Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair is a true full body massager. It not only has the traditional back, neck, and lumbar massage areas it also features a full leg massager, an arm massager, and a shoulder relaxer. It can even massage your feet.
On top of all of that, the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair also comes with a 21st-century scanner that records the way you sit in the chair and allows it to target specific pressure points and posture issues with the built-in intelligent massage programs. This allows the chair to learn your body in a way that other chairs just don’t. If you frequently suffer from back pain or sit in a way that pinches a specific nerve, this chair will do its best to find those areas of discomfort and target them specifically.
The kitchen sink
All of those innovative and unique features come along with a host of other more standard features that are just as important. The Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair gives you all of that and the kitchen sink. The rest of the features are what you can expect from a massage chair at this price point. It has a full suite of massage modes, lumbar support, deep heat, comfortable ergonomic design, a reliable headrest, and remote control.
Specifications of Bookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair
The overall specs for this chair can be summed up in one word: large. This chair is not small. This chair is not subtle. This chair is large and in charge. If you are looking for a small or discreet chair, you are going to want to look elsewhere because the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair is bulky and heavy. It has to be in order to cram in all of the amazing features it is bringing to the table.
Traditional full body massage chair
This chair is going to occupy a lot of space. It is also very heavy. It will easily require two people to move if you ever need to adjust its position or take it out of a room. Weighing in at nearly 300lbs this chair is no slouch.

Pros and Cons of Bookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair
Nothing in life is perfect and similarly, this chair has its fair share of upsides but also a few drawbacks.
The upsides are that everything on this chair works great. The air massage is unique and soothing, the zero gravity button is still a wonderful experience to press in almost any situation and the rollers are diverse and flexible. When it comes to the most important features, comfort, durability, and diversity, the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair hits it out of the park.
It has all of the newest features that a full body massage chair has to have in 2021 and they all work together flawlessly. Nothing on this chair feels cheap or out of place.
Despite the large price tag, this chair is missing just a couple of modern amenities that would put it truly over the top. In terms of quality and performance, this chair has no blemishes. The only thing missing are BlueTooth integration and a dedicated, embedded, control panel instead of the wired remote. Remotes are fine but some of the newest model chairs have a built in control panel and those are really nice.
The only other issue I have ran into with this chair (and other Brookstone products) is that due to the current state of the world and the current state of Brookstone, there have been some complaints of poor customer service. Some of their older chairs are no longer having parts being made for them (for reasons unknown) and getting fast and effective help with your chair if needed seems to be hit or miss. This should not be an issue for most people but it is worth noting.
You Might Like This Product If…
You are looking for a full body massage chair that has all of the bells and whistles. You are someone who wants a spa-quality chair in the comfort of their own home. This chair is not for the faint of heart. If you can get away with a smaller chair, a compact chair, or a massage chair pad, then you do not need to go all-in on a chair like this.
However, if you are looking for the best features currently available for a full body massager, the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair has them all.
If this chair does not tickle your fancy or you are curious what else might be out there that is in a similar vein as this one, here are three similar chairs that you will find useful for comparison and consideration.
An Even Bigger Chair: Gliub 2021 New SL-Track Zero Gravity Full Body
If you took one look at the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair and decided that it just wasn’t quite big enough, you might want to look at this latest model from Gliub. Released on December 28th, 2020, this is the absolute latest chair from Gliub and it is absolutely massive. If you like your massage chairs to be huge, all-encompassing with the ability to completely cradle you, this is another chair you might want to take a look at.
It is also one of the very latest models to hit the internet so if you are someone who only wants the newest products on the market, this is the one to check out right now.
Similar Brand: Kahuna Massage Chair LM-6800 Brown WG
If you like all of the unique features of the Brookstone chair but, for whatever reason, do not like Brookstone itself, this massage chair by Kahuna offers many similar features and design choices. This chair also features air massage, full body scan, and a customizable L-track massage system. If you are looking for something similar to the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair without deviating too much from the core features shown here, this would be a chair to look at.
Budget Chair: Nager Deep V Floating Thai Stretching Zero Gravity
If the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair is too expensive for you to comfortably afford then you can check out the Nager Deep V chair. Nager is a brand that makes a large number of full body massage chairs on a budget. Their chairs are often about half the price of mainstream chairs. They have a decent number of reviews for you to peruse but this chair, or any of their other chairs, could serve as a budget alternative to a top of the line full body massage chair.
When it comes to a full service, full priced, traditional massage chair the Brookstone Renew Zero Gravity Massage Chair hits all of the key points and features. There are only a few minor things holding it back from being a true classic. If it had full smartphone integration, a dedicated control panel, and built-in Bluetooth speakers, this would easily be a 9.5/10. It was only mildly disappointing to see some of those truly next generation features missing from a Brookstone chair. Shaving a few dollars off of the price would not hurt either but you do not get this level of massage excellence on a budget.
Other than that, this chair will give you everything you want out of a full body massage chair. The zero gravity mode is to die for. The massages are varied and effective. Whether you are looking to get stretched out after a workout or just want to lounge while waiting for dinner to finish this chair has a lot to offer.
