Medical Problem

“No pain-No Gain” is a misbelief that has snuck into the massage space. Some people believing that deep tissue massage using elbows and feet to generate high forces and the associated pain during and after the massage are a sign that they are getting the knots out. In fact, what they are doing is tensing the shallow muscles while attacking the deep muscles. A robot can do better by focusing vibration, heat and electric pulses without injuring shallow muscles, much in the same way that ultrasonics are used by a doctor to break up kidney stones without damaging surrounding tissues.
