In these times of financial uncertainty, almost everyone is working double time to pay the bills and still have a little nest egg left over for social engagements and savings. All this work might be good for the soul – and the wallet – but it can be brutal on the body. The body is simply not designed for prolonged sitting or standing in one position. Joints and muscles are affected in ways your basic sofa sets or leather recliner chairs are unable to soothe. For this reason, and others, a massage chair is a must-have for the busy career man or woman. If you’re not wowed by the comfort, the medical benefits of these chairs should sway you.
Massage chairs have been shown to help with everything from improving circulation in the body to assisting with the body’s ability to flush itself of the toxins that lead to stress. It’s been shown that the better able your body is to flush these toxins, the less stress you’ll feel on a daily basis. The same goes for circulation. The better the blood is circulating through your system, the more energy you’ll have and the greater the chances are of your muscles being able to withstand the physical stress of the workweek. Beyond that, massage chairs can help to elongate tight muscles – thereby reducing muscle cramping and pain.
While they might not strike you as an absolute necessity, massage chairs go a long way towards making the workweek manageable for your body.
