We have been sold on the idea that getting a massage is a luxury, a way to indulge ourselves. Many believe a massage is something we should only treat ourselves to every now and again whenever we need the “pampering.”

The reality is that a massage is not a luxury. It is much more than a way to spoil ourselves. There have been many studies confirming the health benefits associated with massage therapy.

According to the Mayo Clinic, “studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.”

Some studies have also shown that massage can

-          reduce fatigue
-          decrease anxiety
-          increase circulation
-          enhance the immune system
-          improve mood
-          enhance sleep quality

Massage can help us in many ways, so get a massage regularly! If going to a spa is too costly, then invest in a massage chair. The benefits you will receive will outweigh the cost. Everybody deserves a massage every day.

Here at Human Touch®, we not only provide wellness solutions, but we strive to give back to our community. We are strong believers that when you give back you are not only helping others, but you are also helping yourself. There is a warm, happy feeling people get when they give back.

This month we were presented with the opportunity to support our Long Beach Community and donate to the 2014 Blue Martini Fundraise Ball.  The Blue Martini Ball is held every year to raise funds for the Food For Kids Program.  This program delivers weekend food relief to elementary students living below the poverty line. We are thankful to be able to help out, but most importantly, we are thankful for the Food For Kids Program and all the work they do.

Whether it is caused by a sports injury, an accident, an illness or just simply overuse, 3 out of 4 adults will suffer from back pain at one point in their life. According to the Mayo Clinic, “back pain is a common complaint” and “it is the most common reason people go to the doctor or miss work.”

 

Given that back pain is a common issue, we built a chair designed to decompress your spine and elevate your body to a new state of comfort and relaxation.

The Human Touch® PC-086 Serenity Perfect Chair®, is great for those that suffer from back pain as it takes you to zero-gravity while elevating your legs and decreasing pressure off your spine. It allows you to relax and manage your stress. The PC-086 also features far-infrared heat radiated through Jade stones that can be felt up to three inches deep into muscle tissue to soothe your sore, tired muscles and ease pain. Here at Human Touch, we pride ourselves in providing a natural solution for back pain.

According to the National Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, “one in two adults aged 65 and over has some form of arthritis.” That statistic might surprise anyone who is not a part of the baby boomer population, but did you know that two thirds of people with arthritis are actually younger than 65 years? If you do not have arthritis, many people within your social circles may very well be living with arthritic pain.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT ARTHRITIS

- Arthritis is an umbrella term used to describe over 100 medical conditions and diseases, known as rheumatic diseases

- Osteo­arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are more common in baby boomers

- Arthritis affects both men and women; it is more common in women

May is National Arthritis Month and Human Touch is very proud to support this important health movement by sharing education and tips about how to support loved ones and how to manage or prevent arthritis pain. There are plenty of ways you can become involved as well.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

1. Walk to Cure Arthritis – Sign up for a local arthritis walk near you: http://goo.gl/68HfHL

2. Help others with everyday tasks - If you have someone in your family that has arthritis, offer your help with everyday tasks as arthritis can make physical tasks much more difficult. Your loved one may often be physically or mentally tired, even if they have slept well.

3. Learn how to manage or prevent arthritis – http://goo.gl/TdafOY

4. Show someone with arthritis that you care – Purchase wellness products to help your loved ones to ease pain on a daily basis. We recommend these products: DVDs – “Tai Chi for Beginners” (Gaiam), “Yoga for the Rest of Us: Easy Yoga for Arthritis” (PBS) or give the gift of daily massage with the Human Touch ZeroG™ 4.0 Immersion Seating with Smart 3D massage engine that simulates the expert movements of a chiropractor, leaving your loved one relaxed and rejuvenated http://goo.gl/hX5v86

5. Learn about the legislation affecting people with arthritis – As a patient, you can understand how legislation may impact your treatment, and by getting involved, you can also speak out on your behalf. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – http://goo.gl/UZzB0l
