Because the main driver of force comes from the thumbs rather than the palm or knuckles, the massage is more precise, however softer than a regular massage.
Because of this, it’s suitable for a daily schedule, as a great way to relax after work.
Why is the Shiatsu Massage Chair So Popular?
Shiatsu massage chairs are so popular because they give you that soft, relaxing massage from home, in addition to the airbag massages that you’re familiar with in a massage chair. No matter what your pain tolerance is, everyone can enjoy a massage without feeling in pain or getting bruised. In comparison to a Thai massage, this massage is aimed at helping reduce stress and relieving tension throughout your body’s main joints.
There’s actually a really good post on Quora from Simon Henderson about the differences between the two, so if you want to learn more about the differences between Thai and Shiatsu massages, then this is an incredible resource.
If you are tired from work, or just sore from a long day of hard work, then this sort of massage is perfect at the end of the day to calm down and relax. Because this is relatable to nearly everyone, it’s no surprise that the Shiatsu massage chair is as popular as it is.
How Often Should I Have a Shiatsu Massage?
Shiatsu massages are the type of massage where you can get one done daily. Because the massage technique is relatively soft, it is great to have one daily. It is recommended to go for a Shiatsu massage daily because it will help improve sleep, reduce stress, and increase wellness overtime.
With a Shiatsu massage chair, this becomes super simple, as it’s right in your home!
You can either use it in the morning after a sleep, or you can use it before you go to bed. Personally, I prefer getting a Shiatsu massage just before I go to bed, then sleep feeling nice and relaxed.
