The Sanyo Massage Chair perfects the art of Shiatsu in a chair ... kneading, rolling and tapping. Sanyo is accredited with several massage chair technology firsts, and still to this day is regarded as the most advanced massage chair in the world!

This design is a substantial advancement over competitive models. And the SANYO massage chair roller heads seesaw to an angle of 50 degrees to follow the curves of the shoulders and back. With this flexibility, the massage heads are able to follow the contours of the body and offer a more effective massage with a professional feel. In fact, four motors and four massage rollers really do add up to a better massage.

Slow Tewaza System for the massage chairShiatsu Massage uses three intricate movements: pressure is applied gently to a pressure point, it is held, and then is suddenly released. This massage technique is both relaxing and invigorating simultaneously. Sanyo used modern electronic technology to analyze the finger movement of a professional massage therapist in order to develop a way to duplicate it.

The Rolling massage helps to stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs. As four massage wheels roll up and down the spine stretching, they also help to stimulate spinal nerve roots and reduce muscular back pain.

The Tapping massage helps to improve blood circulation, reducing muscle stiffness and enhancing movement of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Advanced Sanyo massaging technologies enable you to select the strength (up to 600 taps per minute) as well as the area to be massaged.

  • Stimulating "pressure points" with massage or heat triggers the release of endorphins, which are neuro chemicals that relieve pain. As a result, pain is blocked and the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area is increased. This causes the muscles to relax and promotes healing.
  • Massage focuses on relieving pain and discomfort as well as on responding to tension before it develops into "dis-ease", that is, before the constrictions and imbalance can do further damage.
  • Massage enables the body to relax deeply. By relieving stress, it strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
  • Massage stimulates the lymphatic system and helps hasten the elimination of toxins (e.g., lactic acid) from the body.
  • Massage increases the flexibility and range of motion, reduces inflammation, and increases joint mobility and is used to relieve and even help prevent sports injuries.
  • Massage improves muscle tone and circulation and relieves neuromuscular problems.
  • Massage can help restore emotional balance by releasing the accumulated tension caused by repressed feelings.
  • As massage works a pressure point, the muscle tension yields to the pressure, enabling the fibers to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to affected areas. This increases the body's resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life.

Shiatsu Massage and It's Benefits

Shiatsu is a Japanese word: "shi" meaning finger, and "atsu" meaning pressure. But shiatsu is more than acupressure. It is a combination of many different techniques, including pressing, hooking, sweeping, shaking, rotating, grasping, vibrating, patting, plucking, lifting, pinching, rolling, brushing, and, in one school developed by Suzuki Yamamoto, barefoot shiatsu, which includes walking on the person's back, legs, and feet.

In the practice of shiatsu, each person is primarily responsible for his or her own health and well-being. This contrasts with the Western belief that the medical practitioner is principally responsible for our health. In Western medicine an awareness of the unique significance of touch, the essential form of communication between two human beings in the fight to subdue pain, has all but disappeared; certainly it has become minimal. Ironically, in all times and all cultures, the importance of touch, just touch itself, has been acknowledged as a primary means to mitigate pain. In the hurried rounds of the Western clinical physician checking hospital charts at the end of the day, alas, it has vanished.

Shiatsu strengthens the immune system and, if practiced consistently, truly becomes preventive health care. Who can benefit from shiatsu? Early on, George Balanchine, Ivan Nagy, Martha Graham, and many other dancers took regular shiatsu sessions to relieve their pains and restore and maintain their vitality. It is well known that Liza Minnelli and Henry Kissinger have received shiatsu treatments to promote and maintain good health.

Now you can take advantage of this marvelous treatment whenever you like in the privacy of your own home. Our various lines of shiatsu massage chairs electronically replicate the touch and pressure of a shiatsu master. Computer assisted research has made the ultimate in massages available to everyone.
The reason Sanyo offers the best massage functions is that Sanyo massage chairs have 4 large motors inside the chair.





The nervous system controls and coordinates all organs and structures of the human body. Irritation on any nerve will affect one or more of the body's functions. The most critical part of the nervous system is the spine. Any type of stress, mental or physical, caused by injury, strains, sprains, muscle spasms, or disease will affect one or more of the body's functions, whether voluntarily or involuntarily.

Once the nerves in our bodies leave the spinal column, they travel through canals in the tissue. If there is any pressure on these canals, whether created by inflammation, swelling or misalignment of vertebra, the nerves will send out a signal in the form of pain to alert the body of a malfunction. The Sanyo Massage chair is designed to reduce these pressures by combining nature's simplest forms of therapy into one very effective system. If you suffer from virtually any form of pain or stress, stretching out on your revolutionary Sanyo Massage Chair can be one of the best things you'll ever do for yourself. Sanyo Massage chairs are the most technologically advanced massage chairs for people that want the best!

Your Wonderful Lymphatic System

The predominant fluid in your body is lymphatic fluid. This fluid carries nutrients from the food you eat and oxygen from the air you breathe. It also carries toxic poisons, bacteria, cholesterol and viruses away from the cells in your body. Since there is no pump (like the heart for blood) to push this fluid through the body, it is only moved by deep breathing, stretching, vigorous exercise, gravitational force and massage. Manual lymph drainage improves the flow of lymphatic fluid by using light, rhythmic strokes. Circulation massage therapy has been found to be the most efficient method of stimulating lymphatic circulation. The pulsating action of circulation massage therapy causes the millions of one-way valves that regulate the flow of fluid to open and close thus allowing a healthy surge of lymphatic fluid throughout the entire body. Manual lymph drainage is primarily used for conditions related to poor lymph flow, such as edema, inflammation, and neuropathies. Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be one of the most healthy massage benefits. Repeated circulation therapy thus creates a continuous flow of lymphatic fluid nourishing and cleansing your cells that literally flush your system of harmful wastes and poisons while increasing your resistance to sickness and disease. If you have any stress, either mental or physical, you are going to have areas of restricted lymphatic flow.  Lymphatic fluid is vital to the life process, bathing all the cells, it acts as a medium of exchange; trading food for the cells for the waste products. This waste contains microorganisms, damaged cells, and protein molecules that are too large or too toxic to go directly into the blood stream through the capillary walls.  When the lymphatic system slows down, these waste products accumulate and stagnate which causes the heavy feeling in your limbs and the overall fatigue experienced in a sedentary life style. Receiving Lymphatic Drainage Massage can provide relaxation, increase the removal of toxins to promote health and can be of great benefit for post-operative recovery, to persons suffering from edema and anyone with recurrent sinusitis, allergies or seasonal stuffiness.

In today's fast-paced world, we face high levels of stress every day. Many of us drive long distances, sit hunched over our desks and computers and just can't find enough time to exercise. As a result, we suffer increasing tension and pain from our necks to our lower backs. For centuries, relief has been found through massage methods such as Shiatsu, a healing art originating in Japan from traditional Chinese Medicine techniques. Shiatsu is a Japanese word--"shi" means finger and "atsu" means pressure.
