Today, massage is considered a classic way to improve health. People now see massage as a way to relieve physical and psychological tension, not just a moment of relaxation. We talk about general well-being and massage is preventive in this area. Owning a chair can help you achieve this goal without having to systematically undergo manual treatment in an institute.
The massage chair is becoming more and more familiar in homes and professionals. Indeed, it is more and more popular thanks to its virtues of relaxation at home. Who does not dream after a tiring day of relaxing, of having an assistant who relieves you, releases you from all tension, without you having to do anything?
Massage chairs are perfect for improving overall health by relieving fatigue, stress, or specific points of tension. They offer benefits similar to a manual massage performed in an institute.
How Can a Massage Chair Improve Health?
Now let’s talk about the health benefits of a massage chair and how your new massage chair will improve your posture and health, prevent arthritis, and slow down the aging process.
1. Better Posture
Many people with musculoskeletal pain have poor posture. Most patients of a chiropractor have a head posture and the rib cage retracted (the look “slumped”, “hunchbacked”). This posture is devastating on all the supporting muscles, ligaments, and bones.
Your new massage chair helps reverse this posture. After a session in the massage chair, you will already feel straighter. Do this every day and these changes will seem to last longer and longer.
2. Prevention of Osteoarthritis
This disease is linked to a problem with posture. Poor posture causes the body to weigh down, which in turn will result in osteoarthritis. In other words, if you hold yourself badly, you will become slumped faster.
Changing the way you hold yourself and the way your muscles and ligaments work will change the abnormal load on your body, which in turn will slow down arthritis forming in your spine! You won’t fully appreciate this benefit until you’re 40 when you start to have pain and don’t know why. You certainly don’t want to get hunchbacked with age, do you?
3. Activation of Blood Circulation
Manipulating the muscles by massaging them promotes and activates blood circulation. By circulating more easily, the nutrients in the blood are more quickly absorbed by the muscles.
Daily massages can increase blood flow to your muscles and create adequate nutritional circulation while removing waste products from your body more easily. By increasing blood flow to tissues and muscles, toxins are flushed out more easily and your muscles are healthier and stronger.
4. Better Wound Healing
Better blood flow will improve oxygen transport to the tissues in your body. Oxygen is essential for your healing. If blood circulation is improved, the amount of oxygen will be optimized and your tissues will heal better and faster.
5. A General Feeling of Well-Being
You cannot improve the functioning of your muscles, your blood, and lymphatic flow, your amount of endorphins, and your posture without feeling a sense of well-being in your whole body. In addition, feeling better will improve your behavior in general.
People who experience pain and are in an uncomfortable state have a harder time feeling optimistic and motivated. It is truly surprising how different a person can seem when they are no longer in pain. It almost looks like her whole appearance is changed when she feels better. And it can affect many other areas of your life.
6. Breath Improvement
Many people have noticed an improvement in their breathing – Nothing beats a massage chair to manipulate the muscles around your rib cage. You may even feel the ribs “snap back into place” while you are in the chair.
Those tight muscles and ribs can impair your ability to breathe without you realizing it until you get off your massage chair! Try this… take a deep breath after your session and ask yourself if your breathing is deeper and easier
7. Evacuation of your Stress
Massage chairs are also great for relieving physical pain and reducing muscle tension: a lot of people spend their day sitting behind a screen, which causes abnormal tension, especially in the lower back and neck. An armchair can then allow you to relax and change positions during the day. We quickly find a feeling of well-being and lightness.
Depending on the type of model chosen, Shiatsu, heated, or vibrating, the expected effects will be different, so we advise you to choose a suitable chair that meets your needs.
A massage chair can increase your level of happiness. In our eyes, this is the most important benefit! When you release tension in your muscles or reduce lower back or back pain, your brain releases a chemical called endorphin.
This chemical molecule tells the body to be calm and happy and it calms the mind and muscles (the circle is closed). A massage chair that massages the back, neck, trunk, legs, and feet can reduce anxiety, relieve stress, and your brain will naturally produce this endorphin and release it throughout the body. This will have the effect of rejuvenating your mind and allowing you to see the world in a more positive way.
Massage chairs are very beneficial for your health and general well-being. They can improve many aspects of your physical and mental health and in the end, it is much cheaper than going for daily care at $$ per hour (not to mention the saving of time). It is a very beneficial investment at all levels.
