Massage chairs have the potential t

A massage chair is specifically des
igned to stimulate the pressure poi
nts in your body and relax your mus
cles. A well-designed massage chair
  should provide you relief from pai
n as well as complete relaxation. T
he two most common types of massage
  chair are Shiatsu and Swedish mass
age chairs. Shiatsu massage chairs
use a combination of movements to s
timulate the bodyâ¬"s pressure poin
ts by the help of pressing, patting
, sweeping, rolling, and rotation m
ovements, while Swedish massage cha
irs use long and smooth strokes com
bined with kneading movement.

What Are Benefits Of Using A Massage
 Chair?
Knowing the benefits of a product l
ike massage chair can emphasize the
 need for that product and educate
you towards its important. The bene
fits of having a good massage chair
 are manifold specifically for your
 health. Here are some of the most
common benefits:

* Totally freedom from stress and de
ep relaxation
* Relief from stiffness and tension
in muscles
* Reduction in body tension and musc
le spasm
* Better joint flexibility and wider
 range of motion
* Enhanced flexibility and efficient

* Reduced blood pressure levels
* Better blood circulation

Can Anyone Use A Massage Chair?
Now that you know the benefits of m
assage chairs, you are probably int
erested in knowing who can use it.
Well, massage chairs are typically
designed for an average height of 5
'10". So, if you are much taller or
  shorter than this height, we sugge
st you give the massage chair a try
  before buying it. Ask the massage
chair salesperson to help you learn
  the controls so that you can adjus
t the position of the various nodes
  and rollers for maximum benefit. C
ertain brands, such as Panasonic of
fer massage chairs that automatical
ly adjust to your height by sensing
  the top of your shoulders when sea
ted. If you are over 6 feet tall or
  suffer from knee, hip, or lower ba
ck pain then don't buy a massage ch
air that is very low to the ground.

What features should the massage cha
ir have?
Having too many features in your ma
ssage chair can mean paying a highe
r dollar. More often than not, most
 people use only some specific feat
ures on a regular basis. Choose a m
assage chair with features that mat
ch your needs. For ex: of you are p
rone to muscle tension and stiffnes
s, then you should invest in a mass
age chair that offers excellent mec
hanical massage to your body or spe
cific area of your body. A good exa
mple of this is the Isymphonic mass
age chair that has been designed to
 be especially effective in the nec
k and shoulder areas. Panasonic's P
ro Elite comes with airbags in the
chairs arms that inflate and deflat
e to massage the neck and shoulder
areas. Some other chairs have air b
ags that inflate and deflate in the
 legs and foot region, while others
 have them in the lower back, hip,
and buttocks areas.

When testing the massage chair, als
o pay special attention to the pres
sure or intensity of the massage of
fered. Though the intensity of the
massage can be adjusted according t
o individual preference, you must s
it in the chair for at least 15 min
utes to ascertain that the pressure
 and comfort are acceptable.

If you like to sit with your legs o
n a higher level, then check if the
 massage chair has an extendable le
g rest or an ottoman.

Where Should You Put The Massage Cha
ir?
Now that you have tested the massag
e chair and probably made up your m
ind about which chair to buy, its t
ime to think about where you can ke
ep the chair. Since massage chairs
are bulky, they require more space.
 Usually, a bedroom or a home offic
e is the most popular choice for pu
tting a massage chair in. Discuss w
ith people who will be using the ma
ssage chair to make sure that the p
lace where you keep the chair works
 for them or not.

Reclining massage chairs cant be ke
pt with their back close to a wall.
  A better idea is to measure the sp
ace where youd want to put the mass
age chair before making a selection
. You can also seek the advice of a
  chair salesperson to find out the
area required for your massage chair.

If you are not sure where youll put
 the chair, you may want to buy one
 with wheels like the Ijoy. Not onl
y can you move it from one room to
another but also keep it out of sig
ht when not in use. But if you are
facing a space crunch, then opt for
 a portable massage cushion. Though
 not as rich in features as a regul
ar massage chair, the cushion can b
e placed on any chair and is easy t
o stow away.

What Should My Budget Be?
Budget! Perhaps, one of the main de
ciding factors when investing in a
massage chair. The general range fo
r massage chairs starts at around $
700 and can go up to $6000 or more.
 A word of caution - price is not a
n indication of quality. High price
d models are completely feature pac
ked and you never use most of these
 feature in your lifetime!

Remember, a good massage chair can
alleviate your daily stress and bod
y tension in a matter of minutes. B
ut never buy one without trying it
for yourself.
