Life gets busy, and when it does, being able to come home and fully relax is essential for the mind and body.

But let’s be honest, this is easier said than done.

That’s why ergonomic recliners make it possible, with advanced technology that is akin to having a professional masseuse living in your house.

In our Kahuna LM 9100 review, we look at a high-end massage chair and what it has to offer! Let’s go!

Kahuna LM9100 Design Overview

The Kahuna brand has garnered a reputation for manufacturing comfortable, therapeutic ergonomic recliners especially suited for people who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, and stress.

Whatever feature is hot on the market, they enhance it to ensure users get the most quality out of their experience.

Diversity is another defining point of Kahuna, and they offer multiple chairs priced low to high, appealing to every budget.

This review focuses on one of their high-end models, the Kahuna LM 9100 massage chair. It’ll cost you over $6,000 for this model, but you get all the bells and whistles to satisfy your craving for relaxation.

The LM 9100 is built solid with an elegant futuristic design. The dimensions are 60 x 32 x 50 inches, and it weighs 264 pounds.

Yes, it’s heavy and large, but most high-end chairs are due to the amount of technology they carry. Kahuna did consider this, though, and made it easy by delivering the LM 9100 fully assembled to your doorstep—now that’s rare!

They also incorporated space-saving technology, a common design element you’ll find in most chairs on the market. The LM 9100 can fully recline with only 5” of clearance from the wall

Anything less than 5” is considered the industry standard, so Kahuna hit the mark here.

One of the areas they struck out a bit is the max weight capacity. The LM 9100 does well by accommodating a max height of 6’1”, but it only accommodates 280 pounds. 

It is considered average, leaving out larger body types. It’s also surprising for this brand since they have a reputation for manufacturing chairs that cater to the tall/large crowd. Unfortunately, not the LM 9100. So if you weigh 300 pounds or more, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Kahuna LM-9100 Massage Chair Features

Next, we delve into the features of the LM 9100. Kahuna always utilizes the latest cutting-edge massage technology, so you can expect a phenomenal exceptional experience—whether you want to relax or get pain relief.

S/L-Track + 4D Roller System

We are happy to report here in our Kahuna LM 9100 review that the model incorporated the best massage track and roller system on the market, which we would expect for the price.

An extensive 45” S/L- track starts at the base of the neck and follows the natural contours of the spine. It also dips underneath the seat, allowing the rollers to reach the glutes and thighs for a true full-body massage.

You’re in for a treat with the 4D roller system, as this renders the most life-like massage experience. 

They move vertically and horizontally along the track like dual rollers, but what sets them apart is that they also move away from the track.

This movement allows the rollers to knead deeper into tissue at varying speeds, according to the amount of tension in the area. It feels like real human hands and improves the accuracy of the massage.

In other words, you’re getting the best bang for your buck and therapeutic benefits with this type of advanced setup.

Auto Body Scan

The auto body scan is a common feature you’ll find on most mid to high-range chairs for convenience and a more accurate massage.

When the user sits in the chair and selects a program, the LM 9100 will automatically scan their body, utilizing sensors to detect the pressure points along the back and shoulders

After confirming the user’s dimensions, it will adjust the rollers to align with the pressure points, allowing them to hit areas with the most tension.

The scan is not always 100% accurate, and this goes for any chair on the market with this feature. So don’t be surprised if you end up having to do some manual adjusting yourself after the scan.

Zero Gravity Experience

There are three different Zero Gravity positions provided by the Kahuna LM9100, which is typical of this price range. 

Zero Gravity seating is popular amongst massage hobbyists for the therapeutic benefits it offers, especially for back pain and stress.

This concept is inspired by NASA to make the user feel weightless, as if they’re floating in space. 

The chair reclines to an angle that elevates the legs above the heart. It releases the gravitational pull from the body, allowing the spine and joints to decompress fully. Blood circulation improves, pain melts away, and tension is relieved. 

The spine is pressed more firmly against the backrest for those with back pain, allowing the 4D rollers to administer a deeper massage that further relaxes and treats pain.

The LM 9000 delivered with its Zero-G positioning, giving users more recline variety than you’ll find with most chairs.

Lumbar Heat

While lumbar heat feels sublime against sore back muscles, we think Kahuna could’ve done better in this area, considering the price.

Typically, high-end chairs offer more heating elements, including the back and feet/legs or full-body heat. 

Heat boosts the therapeutic value considerably, but the LM 9100 keeps it at a minimum

However, people who suffer from back pain will probably benefit when combining heat with Zero-G seating and the 4D roller massage.


Kahuna certainly didn’t disappoint with its accessories package, giving users the ultimate entertainment center to create the most relaxing environment possible while getting a massage.

Built-in Bluetooth speakers provide crisp sound, so you don’t have to hear the neighbor’s yappy dog. A nifty USB port and device pocket let you charge your smartphone without having to hold it.

The 7” LCD screen remote is user-friendly with colorful, clear graphics that make navigating the features a piece of cake. All the massage programs are categorized so you can jump right to your favorite massage in seconds.

They also got fancy by offering voice recognition software so you can activate programs simply by speaking

It is rare to see on the market, but do beware that this type of software tends to be sensitive. For example, if you say a command, the chair might interpret something else. 

Kahuna LM9100 Massage Chair Programs

Kahuna always does a phenomenal job with their massage programs, and the Kahuna Massage Chair LM-9100 is no exception.

You get a robust selection of auto programs and manual settings, so don’t worry about ever feeling bored with your massage!

There are a whopping 21 auto programs to choose from, including targeted programs, specialties, and classic favorites.

We were delighted to see Kahuna’s signature Stretch program added to the mix. Inflated airbags hold muscles in place while the rollers gently pull them to create a sensational stretch feeling. 

There are even acupressure massage balls in the hands, which is nice to see since many chairs don’t work the hands at all.

All of the programs have been categorized into three sections for easy navigation, and you can tweak them as needed.

Here are the 21 auto programs:

  • Classic: Renew, Refresh, Recovery, Stretch, Morning, Night, Anti-Stress, Energize
  • Specialty: Salesman, House Wife, Office Clerk, Game Players, Drivers, Sports Man, Server, Senior
  • Elite Target: Neck, Neck & Shoulder, Back Relief, Waist, Waist & Hip, Leg & Feet, Upper Body, Lower Body

In manual mode, you can create your own massages using 11 techniques that include, Kneading, Tapping (1 & 2), Kneading+tapping combination, Shiatsu(1 & 2), Grasp, 3D (1/ 2/ 3/ 4).

There are 5 levels of intensity and speed to play around with and the ability to massage the entire body or focus on a partial area or fixed point.

You can even adjust the duration to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or even 60 minutes! You generally only see 30 minutes max on other massage chairs.

Are you ready for the icing on the cake? You can save up to five massage programs using the Memory Function

Imagine creating the perfect massage, then losing all of those custom settings the next time you want a massage. The LM 9100 ensures that will never happen!

Air Massage 

Air massage is becoming a standard feature on modern massage chairs, and rest assured that the LM 9100 gives you the creme de la creme to help you as relaxed and invigorated as possible.

This type of massage uses inflated airbags instead of rollers to deliver a stimulating compression massage that melts stress away and loosens tight muscles. You can control the intensity with five levels.

There are 36 airbags placed throughout the LM-9100 (yes, 36!). You can also independently control the areas you want to receive compression for shoulders, arm & hand, waist & hip, and leg & foot.

Combine the air massage with the 4D rollers and heat for a therapeutic explosion that will have you canceling your next chiropractor appointment!

Foot/Calf Massage

We really don’t have anything bad to say about the LM 9100 massage chair’s foot/calf massage. If you spend long hours on your feet, then you’ll probably be content with the quality of this program.

Kahuna set up the footwells with industry-standard technology, including acupressure scraping rollers underneath the soles and airbags that compress the calves.

The only thing that would have given the foot/calf massage more therapeutic value is if they placed heating pads in the footwells!

Kahuna Chair LM 9100 Pros vs. Cons


  • Extensive S/L-track and 4D roller system
  • 3 Zero-G positions
  • 21 auto programs
  • 11 massage techniques
  • Variety of manual options


  • Only one heat option
  • Doesn’t accommodate larger body types

As you can see, the pros heavily outweigh the cons for the Kahuna LM 9100 massage chair. For a high-end model, it’s not packed with shiny accessories but instead gives you a colossal amount of massage options and the best massage technology the market has to offer.

These massage options and top-notch technology make the LM 9100 worth the price, in our opinion. Many recliners try to dazzle users with accessories, but what really matters is how comfortable the chair is and how realistic a massage it can deliver.

The Bluetooth and USB capabilities let users plug in their music, and while the voice recognition is a nice touch, it’s not what impresses us the most.

Where you get the best value is with the number of massage options the LM 9100 offers. The 21 auto programs are meticulously curated so that there is a massage for every lifestyle.

Even the manual mode is one of the best we’ve seen, from the number of intensity and speed settings to the convenient Memory function. 

You can enjoy up to 60 minutes worth of massage time, which is rare to see on the market.

Overall, if you’re looking for a massage chair that is high quality, reliable, and offers plenty of variety, the LM 9100 will probably satisfy your needs

We recommend the Kahuna LM9100 massage chair for…

  • People who suffer from chronic back pain
  • People who suffer from chronic foot/leg pain
  • Casual users looking to relax at home regularly
