Acupressure Massage in Massage Chairs

Posted on: March 3, 2009

Acupressure is one of the most effective massage methods in use for overall stress relief and body wellness. This massage technique has its ancient origins in Asian cultures and comes in several variations, which vary the use of rhythms, techniques and pressure to on the pressure points that are located throughout the body. Not to be confused with acupuncture, which utilizes needles to manipulate the pressure points in your body, acupressure is a soothing massage using the fingers to stimulate the body.

This ancient art form holds the theory that every body has points throughout that contain the body’s life force or chi. By applying pressure to these points during a massage it is believed that muscles tension will be relieved and circulation of the blood will increase. This massage technique has proven very effective in treating headaches, back pain, arthritis, stress, menstrual cramps and more.

The use of touching points on your body to relieve pain is clearly evident as useful when you watch that many people will do this on themselves when they are feeling pain. A excellent example is the touching of the temples by those who are suffering from a headache. Acupressure massage is rooted in this human gesture that is common among us all despite the pain location and any other variable.

For those seeking an acupressure massage of course you can see a massage therapist who specializes in this technique or you can get one of the many massage chairs available for your home that mimics the same movements. Many chairs such as those from Panasonic incorporate this technique into their products since they are so relaxing and highly effective for relieving the body of pain and tension. Massage chairs are not only effective at offering pressure point massage but also many other massage techniques so that you can get exactly the massage you need in each session.
