Types of Massage Chairs
There are two most common types of massage chairs are the Shiatsu and Swedish therapy chairs. Shiatsu massage chairs use a variety of massage techniques including pressing, sweeping, patting, rolling and rotating movements. The back rollers in the chair move to simulate the pain-relieving and relaxing methods a massage therapist would provide using the thumbs and palms. Swedish therapy chairs use long, gliding strokes and kneading movements. Swedish therapy chairs are designed to foster better circulation in the body.
