Massage Chairs are becoming increasingly popular for use in the home and office for a ‘massage on demand’. Technology has recently come along in leaps and bounds and quality massage chairs succeed in reproducing the deep relaxation or remedial effects of a hands on massage.
Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. The skin is the largest organ of the human body and is packed with nerve endings and when this soft tissue is massaged by physically stretching the muscles, ligaments and tendons, blood circulation increases with benefits to the immune and nervous system.
Massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine are reduced, promoting the feeling of calm.
Effective massage chairs will give you a choice of treatment types; kneading, tapping, shiatsu, lower body air pressure massage, quad roller systems together with high tech preset programmes movement patterns designed for specific outcomes.
The best massage chairs on the market are not necessarily the most expensive but there are some features which you should look for. A chair with a Body Scan function is ideal as this will automatically adjust the chair and programmes according to individual body types.
Chairs should have adjustable settings for neck and shoulders and width and length adjustment for the leg rest. Quality Massage Chairs will have a clear and adjustable LCD control panel.
These chairs are for the home or office environment and the aesthetic design, colour and footprint is worth considering.
