There are benefits associated with a massage chair that many people need to realize. The massage chair has a bad reputation. Some people think it’s a high-end, expensive item that is out of reach for the average person. Others argue that the benefits you get from a massage seat are temporary, if any.
Massage chairs have many benefits. Let’s take a look at the benefits of massage chairs.
Reduce Stress, Tension, or Anxiety
Studies have shown that massage therapy helps to reduce stress symptoms. This is something that massage therapists already know from personal experience. However, studies such as Delaney’s ‘Short-term effects in myofascial trigger point therapy on cardiac cardiomyopathy in healthy subjects’ or Massage therapy for workplace stress relief’ also confirm this.
Relax and Loosen Muscles
Human bodies are smart and intelligent machines. Muscles become stiffened and sore when you exert yourself beyond what is safe for you. These are signs to the body that tell you to slow down and relax. A massage chair is an elegant way to relax at home.
Improve Blood Circulation
First, the massage from a massage seat is a mechanized one. These massage techniques include kneading. These techniques use the massage chairs’ rollers to move and vibrate the body’s key points, thus improving blood flow.
You can get many benefits from improving your blood circulation. These include:
- Accelerating the recovery of injuries and illnesses
- Eliminating toxins
- Stimulation with endorphins that aid the body in coping with stress or pain
- The Zero Gravity feature is found on premium massage chairs. Blood can reach all body parts in this position and circulate more effectively.
Boost Immune System
Did you also know that lymphocytes increase when there is a 45-minute massage? Lymphocytes are white blood cells essential for the body’s defense against disease. They are responsible for the body’s immune defense. Increased lymphocyte numbers will make it more resilient to common diseases like the flu, fever, or the common cold.
Maximize Lymphatic Circulation
The body’s lymphatic network is just as important as its blood flow. The drainage network keeps the body’s fluid balanced and protects it from infection. It can be compared to the body’s drain system because it collects waste by-products.
While blood can circulate through the body via the heart, it cannot push lymphatic fluid along its path. It can only move around the body if you breathe deeply and contract your muscles. When you live a sedentary life, lymph fluid tends to accumulate in your body, leading to inflammation.
Massage chairs with a recline position can improve lymph circulation and combat inflammation. For example, people’s feet tend to swell after a hard day’s work. One common way to reduce swelling is to ‘put your feet up.’
Pain Relief and Headache Relief
The effectiveness of massage chairs has been shown to relieve headaches, common body pains, chronic neck/shoulder/back discomfort, and many other types of pain. Studies show that massage therapy has an average 28% increase in serotonin and cortisol. The body’s main anti-pain mechanism. The body can better manage pain by lowering cortisol levels and increasing serotonin.
Although massage chairs may not be able to relieve chronic pain, most chairs can do so. Specialized massage chairs, however, can. Massage programs and body heat can help relieve pain.
