Chopping Massage Chairs

The Chopping technique or Tapotement massage is performed by the hands in is a series of rhythmic percussion movements on the back. Chopping is usually done at the end of a massage to awaken the muscles after a deep kneading Swedish massage. Chopping, which is similar to the benefits of vibration massage, increases blood circulation, promotes relaxation, and soothes aches and pains. Repeated chopping desensitizes the nerves in a specific place, allowing the muscles to unwind and let go of stress and tension. After a chopping massage, you will feel energized and collected.
