Massage Chair
Intended to emulate the motions and techniques of an actual massage, 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 formulates a personalized massage for each user by adjusting to the user’s weight, height, and width.

The massage chair is designed to function like a Shiatsu and Swedish massage. Below is a guide of what to expect from the massage chair features.

What is Shiatsu or Swedish massage?

  • Shiatsu massage 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.
