Are you looking for a pleasurable experience or therapeutic values of massage? Sanyo developed a massage chair that can also detect lies.

Implications - Okay, so maybe the chair doesn't exactly detect lies, but according to Sanyo it "locates areas of physical stiffness and gauges fatigue by changes in skin temperature, perspiration, and pulse," which are the same factors that lie detectors use to decipher between truth and lies. If you were somewhat of a MacGuyver, you could potentially make yourself a super-comfortable lie detector by utilizing the sensors embedded within this massage chair. Your guests might feel a little uneasy sitting in your furniture if they knew you were monitoring what they were saying.
