Massage Chair:
Intended to emulate the motions and techniques of an actual masseuse, the goal of the massage chair is to relieve stress, tension, and alleviate back pain as well as increase circulation which promotes healing. The massage chair has numerous preset patterns and programs. The massage chair nodes and rollers are designed to emulate fingers and hands. The massage chair automatically adjusts for the weight, height, and width of the user. As the user specifies, the massage chair massages from the neck down to the lower back with a tapping, rolling, or kneading motion.

The massage chair is designed to be like a Shiatsu and Swedish massage.

  • Shiatsu uses pressing, sweeping, patting, rolling, and rotating movements. The defining characteristic of Shiatsu is its focus on releasing tension in specific locations of the body.
  • Swedish massage is characteristic of long gliding strokes and kneading motions. This type of massage is aimed at fostering proper and strong circulation.
