What are Kneading Massage Chairs? 

Kneading is the ultimate massage technique. This technique is applied to the body with firm thumbs moving the skin in slow, circular motions. Kneading stimulates the muscles to loosen them up before physical activity all to make them stronger.

The massage can be done in wide strokes across the back, narrow strokes along the neck, or in smaller movements on the legs and feet. Kneading is the standard massage technique performed all over the body to calm the nerves, increase circulation, and relieve tension in the muscles.

Kneading is performed by moving the rollers in a series of circular motions across the body anywhere from the neck, shoulders, back, glutes, calves, and feet.

Kneading is typically firm and slow, but the intensity, speed, and width of the rollers can be adjusted to your preference in some auto programs and all manual programs. Kneading is the standard motion of massage in a massage chair, in fact, it is uncommon for a chair not to have kneading.
