 The adjustable headrest is beneficial for people who have neck and shoulder problems, because it allows them to not have to support their own weight on their neck. Instead, it gives them the option to relax their muscles. Having an adjustable footrest is just as important as the headrest, because it provides more comfort and relaxation for the client and also more control which provides more flexibility for the nail technician.

The Shiatsulogic massage chair provides full function massage including tapping, kneading, rolling, pressing, knocking and combination. The pedicure chairs make is easy for nail techs to adjust the chair to an ideal position for them to provide the manicure/pedicure services to their client, while at the same time allowing their client to enjoy different massage functions per their preference by using a remote with the chair or smart buttons on the tub. In addition, it comes with acetone resistant manicure trays that will allow you to have the 3- in -1 full service for clients that are wanting manicure, pedicure, and a body massage.
