Massage Therapy to Better Your Health: Massage Chairs Can Help!

Jul 5, 2008
We know we need to take good care of our bodies. We also know that having good health should be a higher priority. We get so busy, we just do not have time for everything. Out goes the window our long term health. We accumulate stress throughout the day and need a way to release it. Since ancient times, massage therapy was the answer to releasing stress and relaxing. Time at the day spa would be nice, if only I had the time. This is where a massage chair can help.

Can a massage chair really help me out? The premier massage chair brands have developed an incredible array of therapeutic massage therapies in their recliners. Massage therapy manipulates both the skin and muscles which helps to relieve and alleviate aches, pain and discomfort. Furthermore, massage chair recliners can perform full body massages. From you feet to your head, today's massage chair got your covered.

The evidence for massage therapy keeps building. The studies keep showing that massage therapy helps to relax the muscles; reduce the heart rate: increase blood flow and lymph flow; improve range of motion and guess what? Reduce Stress! We all know the massage therapy feels good, but massage therapy is a treatment. The studies also show that like diet and exercise, massage therapy is a process of healing the body. Massage therapy must be performed on a periodic, recurring basis.

Of course, one of the problems of getting a massage is the time involved. By the time an appointment is set, you drive to the spa, and get the massage, and then come back home may all take 2 hours or more. This is great if you always have the time, but most of us do not. A massage chair on the other hand, provides in-home convenience, 24/7 access and no appointment necessary. It is ready, willing and able to relieve your aches and pains.

One of the big time savers, not that I want to rush your massage, is how a massage chair delivers the massage versus a therapist. The typical massage therapist starts you on your back, works up and down your back. Works down one leg and then the other. Flips you over and then continues on to one leg and then the other. Next, one arms and then the other. The therapist covers 5 major areas in 50 minutes. This is roughly 10 minutes per area.

A massage chair on the other hand can deliver the massages to each area in parallel. This significantly reduces the total time for the massage. The massage chair can effectively massage the back, both legs and arms at the same time. Each area is getting massaged all at the same time. This is a lot of massage therapy at one time. But in essence, 10 minutes in the massage chair is equivalent to a 50 minute massage.

A massage chair can help you by always being available when you need it. Imagine having 24/7 access to your own mechanical masseuse. No appointment necessary. Building a routine around massage therapy cannot be too hard. In fact to get the most benefit, the routine has to include periodic, continuous treatment. Sound like more fun that working out! Well, it certainly is a great compliment to soothe those aches, pains and soreness. Get the balance you need, and look at integrating massage therapy into your total health. The ancients would have loved the opportunity to have a massage chair recliner.
