What You Need to Know Before Buying a Massage Chair

Massage therapy has been proven to be beneficial for relieving tension and alleviating back pain, but finding an available licensed therapist may not always be easy – hence the popularity of massage chairs.

How does it work?

At its most basic level, massage chairs are designed to mimic and combine the most effective techniques of Shiatsu and Swedish massages. The nodes and rollers that are powered by motors, give you the pressing, sweeping, rolling and rotating movements of a Shiatsu massage. The long gliding strokes and kneading motions are characteristic of a Swedish massage. These movement patterns are pre-programed into the massage chair. Almost all massage chairs have sensors that measure pressure on the seatback to allow the chair to automatically conform to the user’s weight, height and width, to deliver a fairly spot on massage.
