Massage chairs help to provide energy and to rejuvenate the body to increase productivity at work or in school. This is because tired and worn-out muscles are stretched, rolled, and loosened to give the revitalization and relaxation they need to recover.
With the decrease in stress, it causes the body to become more relaxed giving the ability to have a more restful sleep
Helps to correct your posture:
As the muscles begin to relax, any imbalances in the system can be corrected. Relaxed muscles help the body have an increase in its mobility.
Reduces muscle tension, and pain:
Regular massage helps with back pain because it massages and relaxes tense muscles that are causing the pain. With a massage chair giving a daily massage, muscle tension and pain is greatly decreased as it can reduce heart rate, blood pressure, and enhance immune function, boost levels of endorphins and serotonin (the body’s natural painkillers and mood
regulators) and increase blood circulation– all the while easing
sore and achy muscles.
Helps to relieve stress:
A 30-minute massage daily has been shown to decrease the cortisol level by 50%. Having a massage stimulates the release of neurotransmitters that help fight off depression and other emotional stress. Which in turn will
help in decreasing high blood pressure.
Aids with Lymph node function:
Massage promotes healthy functioning of the lymph system by directly stimulating and relaxing the muscles. It flushes metabolic waste and helps distribute nutrients to the body.
Can aid with Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia:
Since pain is a symptom of both fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia, massage chairs have been found to be an effective method of relief. The focus is on restoring more flexibility and elasticity to the soft tissue area.
Helps lower lactic acid build up from stress or strenuous exercise:
By massaging the muscles in the body, blood flow is increased and lactic acid is excreted.
