New Innovations: Self-Automated Massage Systems & Services

Anyone who has ever experienced a massage understands how wonderful and healthy a massage is for a variety of reasons. Getting a massage feels fabulous! Once it is underway, all of your stored tension and stress begins to slowly release from your body and mind.

Today, the new concept of Self-Automated Massage Systems (SAMS), with the power of heat and soothing vibration, is improving on the time-honored tradition of massage wellness, as well as offering salons tremendous revenue potential.

Enthusiasts believe SAMS set the stage for a new opportunity of self-service massage for re-energizing and rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit for everyone.

Traditional Massage

A collection of published studies shows that regular massage therapy can improve wellness and quality of life. According to, “If you’ve never tried massage, learn about the possible health benefits of massage and what to expect during a massage therapy session.”

Massage is a general term for pressing, stimulating, rubbing and manipulating the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments, as defined by the Mayo Clinic. Massage has many forms and techniques for mind and body.

The Science of Massage

Why does massage feel so extraordinary? First, it quiets the mind and allows your thoughts to gently pass by. Massage facilitates the ability to be “in the moment” – known today as being “mindful.” A state of mindfulness helps calm your emotions and heightens body awareness. Second, the areas of your brain which regulate your emotions become less active, causing you to become less re active. Published studies have shown that massage can help clear the mind, help you think more clearly and improve your alertness.

Why do our bodies love massage? Your brain and central nervous system react automatically to massage. When nerve cells in your skin sense even the slightest pressure, they immediately transmit signals to your brain which release neurochemicals such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins, which can boost your mood and provide a “natural high.” At the same time, stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline decrease, resulting in an overall state of bliss. For individuals experiencing pain, massage can help interrupt pain signals and alleviate discomfort, help sore muscles heal faster, reduce inflammation, heighten and augment cell repair. Massage can also temporarily relieve aches and pains, and improves the circulation of both blood and lymph increasing the movement and removal of metabolic and cellular waste products.

Massage and Heat

Hot Yoga is gaining popularity, and Hot Stone Massage remains a popular form of body work that incorporates heated stones. Heat penetrates deeply, prompting relaxation and relief of muscular tension, stress and fatigue. Advocates of massage with heat claim tense muscles are softened, toxins released, and reduced pain and muscle spasms, which assists in self-healing.

SAMS are Effective

Self-Automated Massage Systems effectively provide the soothing experience of a traditional massage without the need for a licensed therapist. Multi-sensory heat and massage vibration settings can be personalized to create the “perfect massage” every time.

Self-Service Massages Are Needed

Providing self-automated massage services fills a need for everyone, while eliminating the expense of an on-staff massage therapist – no licensing, staffing or personnel problems. They have become popular, ideal services for EFT membership programs, delivering memorable, deep relaxation in privacy and comfort.

Clients who enjoy self-automated massage sessions feel pampered and privileged, nurtured, relaxed and refreshed. As one client commented: “When the massage-vibration motors are purring, I’m taken to a warm place of supreme relaxation and bliss.”
