What Does a Shiatsu Massage Chair Do?
A shiatsu massage chair follows the principles of the ancient Japanese shiatsu massage. When you sit in a shiatsu massage chair, once you program it to the type of massage you want it to give you, the massage rollers in the chair will feel like strong fingers stimulating your back, neck, shoulders or whichever area you advise it to target. Most of these chairs have remote control systems so you can control the area that it focuses on, the duration, speed and intensity and these chairs often have a gentle vibration as well as heat which can leave you feeling relaxed and stress-free. Many back pain or neck pain suffers try a shiatsu massage chair and decide to put one right in their home.
Shiatsu is said to help relax and rejuvenate you as well as improve circulation. It can help everything from your general well being, to digestion of food and sleep habits. The relaxed body works more effectively and reducing the effects of stress by spending a few minutes in a shiatsu massage chair at the end of the day can help melt your stress away and improve your rest and relaxation in the evening as well as help you have a good night’s rest.
