Best Massage Chair for Foot Pain

Many take for granted the privilege we have to use our legs and feet. Our feet and lower body carry us throughout our day and give us the ability to remain active and perform daily tasks. Things like chores, errands, taking care of kids or pets, and leisure activities like biking, hiking, or swimming in the summertime. Because of the time spent using treasured energy and strength to carry the rest of our body, many people often find that sore feet and legs become an issue, especially after being active, standing, or even sitting for 8 to 10+ hours a day.

Being sedentary can cause poor circulation throughout the body. Running, walking, and standing can cause soreness or moderate pain. Sitting for extended periods can cause pain in the legs, feet, hips, and lower back.

A massage chair to soothe the aches in your feet will give you immense stress relief while improving circulation, reducing muscle tension, and easing pain in other body parts by applying pressure on specific pressure points found on the feet. This ancient form of medicine is also known as foot reflexology.

Benefits of Foot Massages

Foot massage with a capable massage chair will provide an undoubtedly refreshing and relaxing therapy session. But you don’t have to go to a professional to get a foot massage. With an easy-to-use massage chair in your very own home, a massage for your feet and your entire body is a perfect “getaway” to decompress and brush off any stress from the day. Use it to revive yourself and prepare for a good night’s sleep.

Foot Reflexology

Most everyone has experienced a standard foot massage to alleviate tension or discomfort after a long day. A massage for your feet can provide many other holistic healing benefits.

Foot reflexology is a centuries-old healing therapy. This ancient form of medicine can be traced as far back as 2330 B.C. and has since provided many with stress relief. It is known to harmonize human energy by managing stress and boosting circulation.

Reflexology is also known to help lower blood pressure, reduce muscle tension, and balance the mind and body through applied pressure to meridian points found on the bottoms and sometimes tops of the feet. 

Potential Benefits of Foot Reflexology include:

  • Pain management
  • Digestion improvement
  • Better sleep quality
  • Reduced eye strain
  • Stress relief and relaxation

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the alternative therapy of foot reflexology by applying pressure to distinct points can help induce health benefits that correspond with specific areas beyond the feet and legs, including organs, glands, and lymph nodes. Foot massage, like reflexology, can provide wholesome benefits for our inner bodily functions, such as digestion.

Foot Reflexology

Foot massage is also an excellent and natural alternative to sleep medications because it can promote a more restful and rejuvenating night. Foot massages will also help to soothe your mind and relieve stress through endorphin release. Impressively, this therapeutic form of reflexology massage can also provide relief to other areas like our arms, legs, neck, shoulders, and lower back while soothing tired, sore, or swollen feet. For instance, a specific meridian point found horizontally across the bottom of the heels of our feet corresponds with potential healing power, and sometimes pain relief, to the sciatica nerve that runs through the lower back, hips, and legs.

How to Select the Best Massage Chair for your Feet

Each person knows what a massage feels like for your feet, including your ideal pressure intensity. Some enjoy a deep, powerful massage, while others may want a light and gentle one. Not one massage chair is best for everyone because our needs for pain relief, satisfaction, and enjoyment from massage therapy are unique. Luckily, with the advanced mechanics and technology within massage chairs today, pressure intensity and massage style can be customized in many different ways. Mattress World Northwest provides the best foot massage chairs for sale at our local stores.

When searching for the right massage chair, consider the following essential features to help you make the right purchase:

Kneading Foot Rollers

Oscillating heated foot rollers will knead and melt away tension to help deflate puffy feet by boosting blood flow and diminishing fatigue of the lower body and feet. This is one of the best ways to relieve unwanted muscle discomfort or pain in your feet for those who like to feel a vigorous deep tissue foot massage.

Compression Airbags

Compression therapy is a valuable avenue for the body’s restorative process by boosting circulation, relieving inflammation, and relaxing muscles within the feet. Compression therapy utilizes airbags to squeeze the legs and feet with air bags to propel blood flow through the legs, feet, and throughout the body. This style of foot massage is best for those with moderate to severe pain.
