Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is very popular around the world, and its light-touch techniques are practiced by countless massage therapists. The goal of Swedish massage is to help the entire body relax, and by using long, gliding strokes, the focus is on the blood that’s returning to the heart after it has oxygenated the muscles.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is often similar to Swedish in terms of technique, but as the name suggests, the pressure is deeper and often more sustained. This is intended to target the deepest layers of muscle tissue, the tendons, and the fascia, which is the protective layer around your muscles, bones, and joints. If you suffer from chronic muscle tension, then this setting will likely be the most beneficial for you.

Shiatsu Massage

“Shiatsu,” which means “finger pressure” in Japanese, is a very popular massage style due to its similarities to acupuncture. By using pinpoint pressure, Shiatsu is able to target specific areas of the body and relieve pain and tension. If you like the idea of acupuncture, but not necessarily the needles or driving to a health spa to have the procedure done, then Shiatsu acupressure could be perfect for you!

Kneading Massage

4 massage styles - kneadingAnother style that your massage chair can offer you is Junetsu Ultra-Fine Kneading massage. This style offers techniques similar to what a massage therapist does with their fingers and thumbs when trying to “knead” out knots and tension in your muscles. The Kneading massage setting is found in the Panasonic Real Pro chairs, so if this is something that interests you, then we’ll make sure you have a chair that can offer it.

These four styles of massage each offer their own distinct advantages and benefits, and with the right chair, you can choose the one that’s right for you. Your doctor may have suggested regular massage to combat your chronic back pain or headaches, or you may be simply looking for a new way to relax and unwind at the end of a long day. Whatever the circumstances, WBMC is here to make sure you can find the perfect chair that meets your needs and provides the relief that you want.
