Human Touch massage chairs replicate the motions that a human massage therapist would make when giving a relaxing massage. The closest to the human touch of any chair on the market, Human Touch chairs are the brand of choice for the American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists. Chairs include a foot and calf massage unit and some are available with kneading and rolling massage strokes. Neck massage is optional on some units as is a stretching program.
The Human Touch massage chairs are extremely popular because they provide the same benefits as a personal massage, which can be invaluable for those who are unable to make it to their massage therapist.
