There are many brands to choose from, the Human Touch robotic massage chair and the iJoy robotic massage chair being, perhaps, the best known examples. However, there are other brands - all of which can be found on this site - including the HoMedics massage chair, OSIM massage chair and Sanyo massage chair to name but three.

Shiatsu is the Japanese equivalent of the Chinese method of acupressure. The name derives from the Japanese words "shi" and "atsu," meaning "finger pressure". It is a holistic system of traditional medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy. Shiatsu therapists use finger and palm pressure to energetic pathways, called meridians to improve the flow of qi.
