Kneading Massage

The technique of Kneading Massage not only is one of the finest relaxation techniques available through both live massage and by utilization of a massage chair in your own home, but it also invigorates the body, by loosening and relieving muscle tightness.

Kneading massage technique is first dependent upon locating the acupoints in your body, which are the specific locations of tightness and tension. This can be accomplished by experienced massage therapists, and by modern, computer-assisted robotic massage chairs, such as the Human Touch HT-1650 AcuTouch™ massage chair, and the Panasonic line of Real Pro Ultra body massage chairs.

Once the acupoints have been located, in the technique of Kneading Massage, pinching and squeezing is then applied to each acupoint. With this technique, tight, sore muscles are elongated and stretched, working out knots and enhancing blood flow. Whether done by fingers or massage chair rollers, the sensation of hands squeezing and releasing in small motions:
  • Can aid in increasing range of motion
  • Can increase flexibility
  • Can strengthen the immune system
  • Can reduce tension, including reducing tension headaches, especially when applied to the neck and shoulder areas
  • Can have a calming effect on the entire nervous systemCan often speed recovery from injuries and illnesses, especially muscle strains and sprains
  • Relaxes the body and reduces anxiety
Proper utilization of the technique of Kneading Massage can make living life a lot more comfortable and enjoyable.
