Why Buy A Japanese Massage Chairs
A Japanese massage chair, also referred to as a shiatsu massage chair, incorporates the ancient Japanese form of therapy from Japan called Shiatsu. The latter literally translates to ‘finger pressure’.
Traditionally, shiatsu involves a practitioner applying pressure (gentle or firm) to parts of the body using their thumbs, hand palms, elbows, knees and feet.
Quality Japanese massage chairs will provide the same experiences that are the kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques used in Shiatsu massages. It will also reproduce compression that is similar to the human pressure applied by a practitioner on either side of your spine and back.
Shiatsu benefits your health and well-being in multiple ways.
Based on the fundamental concepts of traditional Chinese medicine theory, this form of deep relaxation aims to restore the balance of one’s vital energy, the ‘Qi’.
The purposes of Shiatsu massages are to ultimately reduce stress, promote overall well-being and strengthen your body’s healing abilities.
It can be used to treat a variety of internal, musculoskeletal, emotional and chronic conditions. It is thought to reduce muscle stiffness, aid digestion, influence the nervous system; treat chronic conditions such as headaches, fatigue and anxiety; and treat musculoskeletal pains including lower back, neck and joint pains.
In addition, most quality Japanese massage chairs have a zero gravity position feature. This position heightens your massage experience to provide greater physical and mental stress relief and amplify the benefits of Shiatsu.
Discovered by NASA and named after the posture of astronauts during liftoff, the zero gravity position recreates weightlessness and distributes your body weight evenly across the chair. As such, it relieves the pressure from your back and joints by completely supporting your body.
We’ve listed 10 benefits of massages in the zero gravity position:
