Panasonic Showcases Stylish Massage Sofa at Dwell on Design Show in Los Angeles

Sleek New Look Blends Effortlessly With Home Décor Without Sacrificing Performance

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Panasonic, a leader in advanced massage technology for more than 40 years, will showcase the EP-MS40 massage sofa at the West Coast's largest design event, Dwell on Design, June 25 - 27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. 

At only 34 inches tall and with a leg and foot massage ottoman that folds seamlessly under the seating area, the EP-MS40 complements any home décor. The massage sofa is upholstered in washable fabric in two contemporary color options -- avocado green and latte. When not in use for massage, it is a stylish and comfortable accent piece for the living room or family room.

Despite the low-profile design, the EP-MS40 delivers a balanced, full body massage without reclining and automatically adjusts to the height of the user. In addition, its Air Ottoman System delivers a more complete, contoured lower body massage of the shin and calf muscles and the feet.

The Panasonic Massage Sofa offers a full range of massage modes including four pre-set programs -- Full Massage, Mini Massage, Relaxation Mode, and Variety Mode. Two manual programs -- Targeted Massage and Pinpoint Massage -- allow the user to focus on specific areas of the body exclusively.

Endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the EP-MS40 is available at an SRP of $2,499.95. Panasonic is the first company to be endorsed by the ACA for massage chairs.

Dwell on Design attendees are invited to Booth 704 to try out Panasonic's massage chairs. To learn more, visit
