Do you remember when you used to just bounce out of bed in the morning without every single one of your muscles, joints, and bones hurting? No, neither do we. Up to 80 percent of Americans will suffer from some form of back pain in their lifetime, with symptoms typically presenting between the ages of 40 and 65. What's more, this pain affects women more than men — surprise, surprise. Add in the 45 percent of US citizens suffering from stress-related pains, and you’ll quickly realize that daily relaxation, muscle stimulation, and de-stressing is imperative. Enter the best massage chairs on the market.
Massage Chair Benefits
Wellness guru Deepak Chopra raves about the benefits of regular massage sessions, which include pain and swelling reduction, a breakdown of scar tissue, and a boost to body healing, all thanks to the increased flow of blood and oxygen that a massage can provide.
Ideally, we’d all have twice weekly appointments with a top masseuse (at least!), but a lot of factors, including time and money (a one-hour massage session can around $100 on average) may prevent us from being able to do so.
Your very own massage chair is the next best thing to a personal masseuse, and you can use it whenever you like in the comfort of your own home. These chairs can provide effective pain relief by manipulating muscles, increasing lymphatic circulation, clearing toxins, decreasing tension, and improving flexibility.
With other added features, such as heat, nodes, rollers, and even speakers for music, it'll be just like having a spa setup in your living room.
While some of these chairs can be on the pricier side, their cost per session over a prolonged period will be far less than you would spend at the spa, and the daily relaxation, muscle, tension, and stress relief it provides will make it well worth your while.
