They are placed at the end of arms, which moving along the spine imitate hand movements of masseur, borrowed from classic massage techniques. Those moves are executed in different sequences with appropriate speed, force, also in various width and length of the spine.

Next to mechanical massage there is also air massage. It is executed by a line of cushions, which in accordance with intended use, during appropriate sequences fill up with air and wrap various body parts. Air cushions in some programs work together with mechanical massage, supporting its effect. They can also work alone by proper shrinking and loosing muscles. On the occasion they also stimulate blood circulation. Our massage armchairs also have many other functions, for example: leg rollers, heating, vibrations, L-shape and Zero-Gravity. All of them enrich the effect of relaxation on massage armchair. Very long essay can be written about the way they work.
People frequently ask: Are massage armchairs made from natural leather or artificial? Armchairs made from natural leather are available on order and require an extra payment, but as a rule all of our massage chairs are made from high quality artificial leather, which is dedicated to this type of devices. Leather used in our armchairs reject fluids, smells and is very resistant to abrasion and cracking. Not every natural leather endures work of massaging arms, air cushions or heating. After taking minimal care of leather, she will be serving you for a long time.
