There is no doubt that your body will thank you after dedicating a part of your daily routine to reaping the health benefits from your very own massage chair. For those of you who don’t have the convenience of a personal therapy device at home, it is time to consider when the right time is for you to make that investment.
A therapeutic massage provides many advantages such as helping to reduce pain or discomfort by increasing circulation and reducing pressure and tension on the joints and muscles. Many people consider massage therapy to contribute more to relieving body aches and pains. Still, frequent massage can be just as helpful in improving mental health by managing stress. If you’re finding yourself tired and struggling to get out of bed in the morning, whether a lack of motivation or debilitating pain, it is time to consider the benefits of massage therapy. A massage chair in the convenience of your home is a valuable instrument to help you ease and manage some of life’s anxieties and discomforts.
Massage therapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce pain by reenergizing the body and stimulating circulation, giving you an awake, loose, and relaxed feeling of well-being. The advantages of massages go far beyond other treatment methods if you suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, or sciatica pain. They say, “Your health is your wealth.” If you’re not getting enough sleep or if you’re waking up sore and stiff, now is the time to seek the therapeutic advantages of a unique and customizable in-home massage chair.
Treating yourself to a massage a day can help keep the doctor away by helping release built-up muscle tension and toxins, like cortisol, that can flare up an existing injury or cause new areas of distress.
Prolonged muscle tightness or strain will cause an increased risk of injury and affect your ability to sleep comfortably. A massage will help naturally stretch the muscles in your body with kneading, tapping, and rolling motions. The more flexible you are, the less prone to injury, making massage therapy one of the best methods to keep you healthy and free from pain.
Heated massage rollers will perform an intuitive and human-like massage using techniques like reflexology, deep tissue, and acupressure point massage therapy. Not to forget the artfully ancient healing techniques like Shiatsu, Junetsu, and Swedish massages that are available from massage chairs like the D.Core “Cirrus.” Advanced 3D and 4D therapy will help increase flexibility by breaking up the fascia that surrounds the muscles that often become tight and inflict pain. A massage chair is valuable, especially for back pain sufferers, who will benefit from reversing the effects of gravity. Inverted positioning of the body, called Zero-Gravity, will help stretch and elongate the spine. Decompressing the discs will alleviate pressure while helping to ease pain and increase mobility. Zero-G positioning combined with kneading or tapping massage motions will also help correct poor or “slouching” posture.
Massage chairs like the OCHO M8 provide a human-like massage with fully customizable therapy to soothe discomfort and allow total body relaxation. Shiatsu therapy techniques found on the D. Core “Cirrus” and “Stratus” massage chairs will significantly boost blood flow which helps to discharge inflammation- and pain-inducing toxins and cortisol.
Boosting circulation has many advantages to regenerating muscles and relieving pain by increasing white blood cells that help heal the body, making massage therapy one of the best holistic options to remedy your problem areas.
A massage chair, such as the Positive Posture Brio+, is great for anyone, especially those with a dynamic lifestyle focused on improved health through exercise. Muscle recovery after intense activity or exercise like hiking or lifting weights is essential to gaining strength and flexibility and maintaining better health. After and during physical activity, our bodies often experience D.O.M.S., or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, that will generally emerge up to one or two days after exercise. Tender, sore, and tight muscles are common indications of D.O.M.S. typically following physical activity.
Massage therapy will speed up muscle recovery time by regenerating blood flow that will accelerate the distribution of oxygen and nutrients needed to heal the affected muscles. Nutrient distribution will replenish and help your body recover muscle tissue more quickly to feel rejuvenated without feeling so sore. Massages also help stimulate your lymphatic system function to flush out and protect your body from toxins that cause inflammation and pain. Massage chairs provide an array of easily customizable massages like pre- and post-workout routines included with the Positive Posture Brio Sport massage chair. Focused therapy in the areas you need it most makes a massage chair a must-have for athletes needing to recuperate specific muscle groups. When it comes to exercise-related rehabilitation, the diligent use of a massage chair will elevate your performance and accelerate recovery with rapid results from improved circulation and flexibility.
Most people associate massage with managing physical well-being, but massage benefits don’t end there. Massage therapy will benefit your mental health by managing anxiety, relieving stress, and decreasing tension. Massage therapy on a routine basis will affect your brain’s processes by reducing cortisol and releasing naturally occurring chemicals like Dopamine, Serotonin, and Oxytocin. Boosted endorphins give you that relaxed, calm, happy feeling of well-being. The sensation is similar to what is known as a “runner’s high,” where you feel elated and energized following an intense workout. Massaging the muscle tissue will naturally reduce cortisol levels and release “feel good” endorphins to help balance anxiety and depression to help improve your mental health.
