There is a new all air massage chair that I had the chance to try the other day. This is a new chair being released by Omega massage. It is called the Aires massage chair. Unlike most massage chairs, this one does not contain a mechanical roller for the back. Instead it uses an air compression system to deliver a soothing and relieving full body massage.
This chair works by using an air massage system 오피스타. The air massage system works by utilizing an air pump. The air pump directs pressurized air through a number of solenoid valves which direct the air to contoured airbags specially designed to deliver a compression style massage.
A typical massage chair contains mechanical rollers which provide deeper penetration especially for the back. Most massage chairs do contain an air compression massage system as well. This particular massage chair only contains an air compression massage system.
This chair offers you a very soothing and relieving compression style massage. It is particularly focused on the feet and calves. It uses a number of different massage techniques to soothe and relieve the feet for a thorough relaxation.
You’ll find the appearance of this chair to be very pleasing. It does not look like a massage chair at all. In fact it is a beautiful chair to make as an accent piece in your home or office.
One of the hidden features of this chair is its leg rest. The leg rest is neatly tucked underneath the seat. This makes it looks like a regular chair and not have the appearance of one of those bulky massage chairs you have typically seen in the mall.
One of the wonderful features of this chair is its emphasis on the feet and calves. It has a total of 19 airbags with 14 of them dedicated for the feet and calves. You also find two airbags for the waist, two airbags for the back and one airbag for the buttocks.
The foot massage in this chair is simply wonderful. It comes with a stationary roller that is located underneath the arch of the foot. This roller provides an additional dimension of massage coupled with the compression massage of the 14 specially designed airbags.
Additionally, you also find a heater installed underneath the soles of the feet. Heat is used quite often in sports therapy to relax muscles making them more elastic and flexible. This greatly enhances the effectiveness of the compression massage.
The convenient remote control makes it easy to get either automatic or manual massages. Simply select your choice of manual or automatic. The manual massage techniques are great for targeting a specific area, for example the feet.
The upholstery of the chair is ultra soft synthetic leather. This particular type of synthetic leather is breathable, waterproof and simple to clean. You can also select from the colors of red, grey and black.
The Aires massage chair is a great accent chair for any room in the house. It is economically priced under $1000 and comes with full body massage capability. It does have particular emphasis on the feet for soothing compression style relief. It contains a host of therapeutic features and will provide you with a soothing massage every time. The Aires massage chair by Omega is certainly one to please those who enjoy a great foot massage.
There is Thai Massage. But this by itself is not sufficient to clarify what we are talking about. It is somewhat like saying “There is Christianity”. Well – are you talking about Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Born Agains… It is similar with Thai Massage. There is a northern style, a southern style, a royal style, the strictly traditional style and a whole number of styles that have been mixed with other Asian healing arts or with yoga therapy or energy work.
Why are there so many different Thai Massage styles? Why not just one? There is the saying “variety is the spice of life”, and this is very true. Imagine if there was only one car, or one mobile phone – wouldn’t you agree that it is much more fun if you have many choices? Just like you can match a car to your preferences, so can you match a massage style to your body and your likes.
Some people like strong massage, some soft, some like stretching, some prefer oil massage, and some love rocking massage. And then some people love foot work, some love abdominal work, others love head massage. I think I made my case why it is an advantage to have many massage styles and variations.
Here is another good reason. Once a therapist becomes seasoned and experienced, he or she does not want to just follow the routine which they learned in massage school. Massage is a creative, intuitive, graceful, flowing art, not a mechanical system of pressing or rubbing on predetermined points. Therefore it is natural that therapists express their creativity by developing their own styles.
This leads to an ever developing evolution of massage techniques. Without that there would be no growth, no spontaneity, no improvement. Of course there are traditionalists who believe that everything should be done like it has been done for hundreds or thousands of years. And that can also be a good thing. In this way a core style can be preserved and maintained as a bench mark against which newer styles can be measured. And some traditional systems are very good the way they are.
At some point every single massage system has been invented and developed by someone. And those persons were innovators. Innovators create, and traditionalists maintain. There is a place for both. The world would be a boring place without innovation, new creative ideas, and new styles and techniques in the massage and healing arts arena or any other field.
Thai Massage is often not practiced the same way in western countries as it is done in Thailand. The reason for that is that western therapists, unlike their Thai counterparts, have much more access and exposure to other massage styles. Therefore there is always a tendency to mix and blend and combine techniques. Therapists in Thailand have generally never been exposed to anything but the traditional way of working, and therefore you don’t find much blending and changing in Thailand.
Also western therapists have often started out learning massage, and mostly Swedish massage, on a table. Therefore many of them have adapted Thai Massage to the table which of course changes it somewhat, and many blend Thai Massage with Swedish massage
