May 6, 2021

The modern massage appliance industry originated in Japan in the 1960s. Under the background of technological innovation at that time, in order to meet people's demand for relieving body pressure, a Japanese company developed the first fully automatic massage chair.

In the 1980s, the advancement of new materials and electronic technology enabled the miniaturization and precise control of the massage ball device, which greatly improved the comfort of massage appliances, and massage chairs began to gradually enter the family. With the increase of manufacturers such as Panasonic and THRIVE, the product range is gradually enriched. During this period, Japanese manufacturers sought to expand overseas and surrounding areas, and modern massage appliances began to enter my country and other East Asian and Southeast Asian countries and regions through regional trade.

In the 1990s, the pace of massage chairs entering the family accelerated, and various types of small massage appliances were further enriched, gradually extending the segmented massage appliance market for feet, legs, waist, back, and head. During this period, the manufacture of massage appliances was mainly in East Asia and Southeast Asia, such as Japan and Taiwan.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, China has risen as a world manufacturing center, and the global massage appliance industry chain has begun to shift to my country. At present, the production of massage appliances in Taiwan has basically completed the transfer, and Japanese manufacturers have gradually withdrawn from the production of low-priced products such as small massage appliances and low-end massage chairs, focusing on the R&D and development of massage products such as high-performance full-function massage chairs,TENS Foot circulation heated device Production.
