What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique that uses finger and palm pressure to:

  • Release muscle tension
  • Reduce stress
  • Help with relaxation.

The effects all of these have longer-term health benefits for you and your body.

How Do Massage Chairs Work?

Shiatsu and other electric massage chairs incorporate various features to replicate the movements and manipulation you experience with a physical massage.

  • Rollers: Behind the fabric or leather exterior of the chair, motorised rollers position in various ways to work on muscles and sore sports. Kneading motions replicate in kneading electric massage chairs via rollers that move in a circular pattern. Horizontal and vertical rollers gently tap or press against your body to relieve tension.
  • Airbags: Some massage chairs incorporate airbags that gently pump up and either gently pulse or enclose your body.
  • Vibration: Vibrating chairs of different speeds work on relaxing your muscles and stimulating blood flow.
