Relief of joint and lower back pain, improvement of heart health, relief of gastroesophageal reflux, improvement in breathing and relief of inflammation- zero gravity massage chair offers you all these benefits. The “zero gravity” state was developed by NASA (next to the material Tempur), to alleviate the intense pressure to which the column and extremities of the astronauts are submitted during the takeoff. After much research and refinement, zero gravity massage chair helps to distribute the pressure evenly in the body, allowing you to enjoy maximum relaxation. The idea is so compelling that it is used in multiple types of wellness therapies for its known benefits. One of the best ways to enjoy your benefits at home is with your Osaki massage chair. The benefits of massage chairs are numerous. Let’s discover them below.
1. Reduce stress, tension, and anxiety
Studies have shown that massage therapy relieves stress symptoms. Massage therapists know this from experience, but this has also been validated by research studies such as “Short-term effects of massage therapy of myofascial trigger points in cardiac autonomic tone in healthy subjects.”
These studies conclude that massage therapy significantly reduces physical and psychological stress. Measurements of oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels, for example, were lower after a chair massage of 10 to 15 minutes in controlled studies. In today’s society, where stress affects 40% of the population according to the latest data, a solution as simple as having a zero gravity massage chair at home seems obvious but necessary.
2. Relax and loosen sore muscles
The human body is a smart machine. When you overstretch your body beyond what is healthy, the muscles harden and become painful. These are signals for the body designed to keep you under control. Instead of persisting and proceeding stubbornly, listen to your body and take a break. Osaki chair is a luxurious way to relax in your home. It will help you loosen sore and tired muscles, and release tension in your body, especially with a Shiatsu mode. After a long and hard day’s work, we can guarantee that a good massage chair is a gift from heaven.
3. Improve blood flow
The zero gravity massage chair improves circulation. Two components of the massage chair help improve blood circulation. The first is the mechanized massage that is obtained from a zero gravity massage chair. These massage techniques include kneading, rolling, hitting, grasping, and Shiatsu. In all these techniques, the rollers of the massage chairs move and vibrate key points of the body, thus promoting better blood flow. The additional factor is the zero-gravity feature of premium massage chairs. In such a position, the blood reaches the various parts of the body and improves circulation throughout the body. There are innumerable benefits of increased blood circulation. These include:
4. Strengthens the immune system
Did you know that a 45-minute reflexology surges the amount of lymphocytes in the body? Massage chairs benefit the immune system. Lymphocytes are white blood cells that help defend the body against diseases. They are responsible for the body’s immune response. When the body can increase its number of lymphocytes, it is better able to resist the conditions that we find every day such as the common cold, fever or flu. According to the experts, a single massage is sufficient to produce and measure significant quantifiable changes in the body’s endocrine and immune response.
5. Mobilize lymphatic circulation
The lymphatic system of the body is as important as the blood flow of the body. It is the drainage network that keeps our body fluids balanced and defends the body against infections. One way to think about the lymphatic system is to consider it as the body’s waste system since it collects the byproducts of the body’s waste. While blood has the heart to pump throughout the body, the lymphatic system does not have such a “pump” to force its movement. You can only move around the body when you breathe and contract the muscles. Therefore, when you lead a sedentary lifestyle, the lymphatic fluid tends to accumulate in the body causing inflammation.
6. Relieve pain and headaches
Osaki massage chairs have a proven track record of relieving all types of pain, including headaches, common body aches, chronic neck/shoulder/ back pain, etc. Studies show that massage therapy decreases cortisone levels and increases serotonin by an average of 28%. Serotonin is one of the body’s mechanisms against pain. By reducing cortisol and increasing serotonin, the body can better manage pain.
7. It improves the heart
Zero gravity Osaki massage chair significantly improves your heart by allowing better circulation of the blood it releases heart pressure. It reduces stress on the lower back: by lowering the pressure in the lower end allows optimal blood circulation to the brain, which helps reduce pain.
8. Relieves gastrointestinal reflux
Massage chair with a slight tilt of the torso up helps reduce, and even prevent, the acidity of the stomach back into the esophagus. It reduces swelling and is especially beneficial for those with diabetes, high blood pressure or overweight. Keeping the feet and legs slightly elevated, it reduces swelling and fluid retention in the lower part of the body while allowing the circulation of blood. The massage chair also helps improve breathing.
