While perusing the products page of our websites, many visitors will come across our "Shiatsu Massager" category and probably ask, "what is Shiatsu?" We pride ourselves in carrying these types of products because of their undeniable health and wellness benefits. Developed in Japan in the early 1900s as a medical therapy, Shiatsu evolved from the practice of acupuncture and a massage; essentially, it was a fusion of both Asian bodywork therapy and modern Western medical knowledge. "Shiatsu" translates to "finger pressure" and uses kneading and tapping to treat a wide range of chronic conditions. Below is a list of common reasons for Shiatsu treatment:
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Sinusitis and Bronchitis
- Joint Problems
- Muscle Stiffness
- High Blood Pressure
Today, living a natural and healthy life is becoming increasingly important for many people - we wholeheartedly agree! We believe that many of your illnesses can be treated without the need for medicine. When you use any of our Shiatsu Massager, the pressure applied to your body promotes a balanced energy flow throughout your nervous system. This type of therapy restores any irregularities that may be occurring in your body's system functions, stimulating your body's natural healing abilities. After all, you only reach for conventional medicine when you actually feel sick - but regular use of a Shiatsu Massager has a preventiveeffect.
We've had customers testify to, not only the relaxation effects, but also the medical benefits of having this therapy available to them in the comfort of their own home. Jeana from Redondo Beach, CA shares in her blog that using Zyllion's Shiatsu Massager with heat up to three times a day is apart of her chronic backache treatment. Like Jeana, we encourage you to be proactive and invest in your overall health; our Shiatsu Massager pillows and chair are a great place to start!
