Get Acupressure Massage Therapy Needing a Good Kneading Massage?

November 23, 2016

Kneading refers to the act of sculpting, shaping, stretching, and squeezing a pliable material such as clay or dough with your hands.

In a similar vein, any good, effective massage must uncompromisingly employ the techniques of thorough, rigorous kneading.

Kneading, in massage parlance, refers to the act of taking skin and flesh, and handling it as though you were handling dough or clay, by emulating the motions of sculpting, shaping, stretching, squeezing, and wringing it with your fingers, palms, elbows, and fists.

Combine this massage kneading massage technique with an exotic massage therapy technique originated about one hundred years ago in Japan, known as shiatsu therapy, and the result is a formula for a blissful massage experience.

Fast forward to the present day, and you have the modern invention which is known as the kneading shiatsu massager.

Shiatsu Massage, What's So Special About It?

Shiatsu massage is the ancient Japanese art of "finger pressure." Shiatsu is designed to apply just the right pressure in just the right places to bring relief. This venerable method of massage employs the same knowledge of the energy flows of the body that is used in acupuncture, but as acupressure, no needles are required to bring an end to tension and pain.

Shiatsu Massage Techniques ... Feel So Good

As I mentioned before Shiatsu massage isn't all about rubbing your skin with a finger, however. There are also rubbing, stretching, heating, cooling, and calming methods, all of which can be imitated by a machine. 

Using a shiatsu massage machine could not be easier. Since you want to stimulate specific points on your neck, back, legs, or feet, you simply place those parts of your body on the machine according to manufacturer's instructions. The machine does what the shiatsu therapist does.

The energy flows of your body are re-balanced. You start to feel good all overjust like in any other shiatsu massage. And because your Vita Masssager selection will be lightweight and ergonomically designed, there's no discomfort from your session. Just place, turn the machine on, and rejuvenate!

Made in Japan?

Shiatsu massage therapy is a uniquely distinct form of massage, as opposed to other styles of massage such as the Swedish massage or the Indian head massage, for example.

  • Shiatsu massage therapy bills itself as a form of “holistic bodywork”.
  • Relying on techniques of acupressure, the masseuse uses his or her hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees in order to perform the massage.
  • Acupressure refers to the application of deep pressure to one of the twelve theoretically body meridians along which your body’s energy flows.
  • This form of massage therapy is designed to relieve pain and stress, and to invigorate your spirit by releasing this pent up energy.


The Kneading Shiatsu Massager - Life Imitates Art

Shiatsu massage therapy has become so widely popular in the world, that what better way could there be to pay homage to its unique contribution to society than to create a kneading shiatsu massager machine that emulates this massage technique?

There are as many different types of massagers as there are styles of massage. The kneading shiatsu massager emulates the acupressure techniques of this school of massage therapy by way of its design and implementation.

Typically a kneading shiatsu massager will come in one of two forms:

1. In the form of a portable massage chair
2. In the form of a portable massage table or massage bed or mattress

While Shiatsu massage is known to be an extremely beneficial form of holistic therapy as practiced by millions of licensed masseuses across the world, the use of an actual kneading shiatsu massager must be exercised with great care and safety precautions.

  • Ensure that the speed and intensity of the kneading shiatsu massager can be adjusted, on demand, at will.
  • Sometimes massage can do more harm than good, if too much pressure s being applied.
  • Be aware that your body may react differently to kneading shiatsu massage on different days, depending on your own body’s energy levels, stress levels, and fatigue.
  • Pregnant women must exercise extreme caution before using a kneading shiatsu massager and should in fact consult their doctor before using one.
  • Exercise sound judgment when using a kneading shiatsu massager that has the option to apply heat. You may not want the massager to contact your skin directly, but rather over the skin, in case the heat becomes uncomfortable and could lead to burns.
