Massage is an ancient therapy that involves the use of hands to manipulate the deeper layers of muscles and the connective tissues by use of different techniques. Always has been used to relieve muscle tension and stress, hence help to promote relaxation and the overall well-being of a person, since the old ages.
Today, massage chairs are replacing human massage therapists since they are more convenient, more private and portable. Massage chairs provide psychological and physical effects that help you in relieving and reducing neck pain and back pain in the privacy of your home.
What to consider while buying a massage chair
Space on where to place your chair should be the first thing you consider before you make your purchase. Massage chairs can be very reclined and bulky, preventing its positioning close to a wall. It is important, therefore, to measure your space before choosing a chair. You can ask the salesperson if the type of chair that interests you will work for space you have in mind.
Massage chairs come with a lot of features. Though, you should select a seat with the most useful features of you and the kind that will benefit you most in alleviating your pain. You also need to compare the pressure of the massage. Other chairs use lighter pressure while others give intense massages. Others allow you to decrease or increase massage intensity. You should also consider purchasing a chair that will allow you save massage sequences so that you do not keep reprogramming your massage sequences if you are sharing your chair with other people.
User of the chair
Most of these chairs’ design are for persons with approximately 5’10” height. You can give the chair a test drive if you are shorter or taller than that. Look for massage chair models with designs that can adjust your height automatically by sensing where the top of your shoulders is. Also, if you are not the only one going to use the chair, every person going to use it should check if its height is comfortable.
Make sure there is someone you can talk to about problems that might come up. Other manufacturers provide their customers with call free numbers or online chat service so that you can get your problems resolved. You can test the number to see how they respond before you buy.
Ensure that the chair you want to buy is durable. Check the chair’s specifications on maximum body weight capacity. 300 pounds is the standard maximum capacity. Be sure to also check the maximum usage duration per session and its maintenance.
Put in mind these considerations before you make your purchase, for a quality massage chair that will leave you feeling happier, relaxed and healthier in the comfort of your home.
