1. What types of massage do massage chairs offer you?

Our massage chair can provide a variety of massage types depending on the model, including:

  • Shiatsu massage: This Japanese technique uses pressure on specific points on the body to relieve tension and promote blood circulation.
  • Swedish massage: This style uses long, sliding strokes and kneading to relax muscles and improve flexibility.
  • Deep tissue massage: This method targets the deeper layers of the muscles and is particularly effective for chronic muscle tension and pain.
  • Tapping massage: This technique uses rhythmic, tapping movements to stimulate muscles and promote blood circulation.
  • Kneading massage: This technique involves applying pressure and kneading the muscles to relieve tension.

2. How does Shiatsu massage work in a massage chair?

Shiatsu massage in a massage chair is based on the traditional Japanese technique of applying pressure to specific points along the body's meridians. Modern massage chairs use rollers and air cushions to precisely simulate this pressure. These rollers move along the back and apply pressure to the acupressure points, which promotes blood circulation and relieves muscle tension. Users can customize the intensity and duration of the massage to achieve maximum benefit.

3. Why should I? Choosing a Naipo massage chair?

Naipo massage chairs have remarkable advantages in many ways. Here is a comparative analysis of the different types of massage:

Shiatsu massage: Promotes blood circulation, relieves tension and improves the flow of energy in the body

Naipo massage chair:

  • High precision: Naipo massage chairs use advanced 3D scanning technology to identify the body's precise pressure points to provide a more effective Shiatsu massage.
  • Versatile intensity levels: Users can adjust the intensity of the massage as needed, from gentle to vigorous.
Other massage chairs:
  • Lower accuracy: Many traditional massage chairs do not have 3D scanning functionality and therefore cannot find pressure points precisely, resulting in less effective massages.
  • Limited Intensity Options: Some models only offer limited intensity levels, limiting adaptability for different users.

Swedish Massage: Reducing stress, improving flexibility and promoting overall relaxation

Naipo massage chair:

  • Gentle, flowing movements: Naipo's Swedish massage function simulates the gentle, long strokes of a professional masseur, resulting in deep relaxation.
  • Comprehensive coverage: The massage covers the entire body, from the neck to the legs, ensuring holistic relaxation.
Other massage chairs:
  • Less fluid movements: Traditional massage chairs often offer less fluid movements, which can lead to a less relaxing experience.
  • Limited Coverage: Many traditional massage chairs only focus on the back area and do not provide a full body massage.

Deep tissue massage: Relieves deep muscle tension, relieves chronic pain and improves posture

Naipo massage chair:

  • Strong, effective massage: Naipo's deep tissue massage is powerful enough to penetrate deep into the muscle layers and relieve chronic tension.
  • Smart adjustment: The chair automatically adjusts the massage intensity to different areas of the body to achieve the best possible effect.
Other massage chairs:
  • Lower intensity: Many traditional massage chairs do not provide enough power to effectively treat deeper muscle tension.
  • Lack of smart customization: These models often do not have automatic massage intensity adjustment, resulting in less than optimal results.

Tapping massage: increasing energy, improving muscle tone and promoting blood circulation

Naipo massage chair:

  • Strong, rhythmic movements: Naipo's tapping massage feature uses powerful, rhythmic movements that increase energy and improve muscle tone.
  • Diverse modes: Multiple tapping modes are available so the user can choose the setting that suits them.
Other massage chairs:
  • Monotonous movements: Conventional massage chairs often only offer a simple tapping function without the option to select different modes.
  • Limited customization options: These chairs often only offer a limited selection of tapping modes, which limits flexibility.

Kneading massage: Relieves muscle tension, promotes relaxation and improves muscle mobility

Naipo massage chair:

  • Natural kneading movements: Naipo's kneading massage simulates the natural movements of a professional masseur, resulting in effective relaxation.
  • Comprehensive coverage: This feature extends across multiple areas of the body, including the neck, shoulders and legs, providing complete relaxation.

4. How often should you use a massage chair?

The frequency of using a massage chair depends on individual needs and preferences. It is generally recommended to use the massage chair 3-4 times a week for 15-30 minutes each. In the case of specific complaints or chronic pain, more frequent use may make sense, but should be discussed with a doctor or therapist in order to avoid possible overuse.

5. Are massage chairs safe for every user?

Massage chairs are generally safe for most users as long as they are used according to the manufacturer's instructions. However, there are certain groups of people who should seek medical advice before using a massage chair:

  • Pregnant women: Some massage techniques may be unsuitable for pregnant women.
  • People with heart problems: Using a massage chair could affect blood pressure.
  • People with skin or muscle injuries: The massage could aggravate existing injuries.
  • People with certain medical implants: Electronic components of the chair could interfere with implants.

If in doubt, you should always consult a doctor before using a massage chair.
