If you have a high stress job and are looking for a good reason to invest in a massage and yourself-check out this research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology (2007;165:828-837) the study detailed how a high stress job can increase a person’s risk for obesity. Upon deeper investigation, we know that if we are successful with implementing a de-stressing plan as part of our daily ritual we can “offset” the stress and bring ourselves back into harmony and balance…deep breathing, laughter with loved ones, exercise, yoga and massage are all great bets to help you keep your body, mind and waistline in check-enjoy!

Whether a persistent nemesis like your freeloading brother-in-law, or a surprise – yet unwelcomed – visitor like a process server, back pain is never something you want to stick around. Unfortunately, today’s lifestyles practically invite back pain for prolonged stays.
Of course, guys who wield sledgehammers for a living have to worry about injured backs. But more and more, desk jockeys are realizing the agony of back pain. Hours of hunching over a computer keyboard while sitting in a office chair, followed by vigorous exercise to work off the stress it causes, is the perfect recipe for a sore back. Making even the simplest tasks huge, painful challenges.
But there is hope. Quite luxurious, indulgent and stylish hope, in fact. Turns out regular massage from Human Touch massage chairs can help prevent back pain from rearing its ugly head and relieve it more quickly once it shows up.
Human Touch massage chairs ease pain and hasten recovery by gently and gradually stretching and manipulating muscles, joints and ligaments, which improves flow of oxygen-rich blood. Frequent massage also prompts the body to release endorphins – the body’s natural painkiller – to relieve muscle tension and stiffness. The results? Faster recovery, improved range of motion and simply feeling better.
There may be no cure for long hours at the office (except maybe hitting the Lotto), but there is way to prevent and heal back pain. Regular massage from Human Touch massage chairs can help you feel better, play better and perform better.

I am here at “The Breakers Hotel and Resort” in elegant Palm Beach, FL, where the annual “Florida Chiropractic Society” meeting is being held. Thirty or so of the more than three hundred chiropractors in attendance have at one time or another worked for me. It is wonderful to see how many of them are using Human Touch Massage Chairs; HT-125′s, 135′s, 136′s and now even the HT-7120′s and HT-7450′s as a therapeutic tool.Axial traction provided by any of the afore mentioned models is as good, and in most cases better, than any roller table on the market today. Furthermore, I don’t know of any roller table that also provides an extension/distraction mode as well.
If you are a practicing chiropractor, you would be well advised to purchase and use Human Touch massage chairs in your office as a therapeutic tool!

We have been busy this summer attending golf tournaments, demonstrating the Human Touch massage chairs to golfers, young and old. We are quite impressed with the increased flexibility that golfers feel after even just one 15 minute session in a massage chair.
In September, we will be showcasing the chairs at the PGA Championship Tour at Willow Creek Country Club, here in Salt Lake City. We went to the Press Conference yesterday, had a fantastic breakfast, and were introduced to the tournament director. Then we went golfing, which, I might add, was quite a humbling experience for me (I think I deserve to get to know Tim Clark, PGA professional and one of my fellow Human Touch Wellness Council members, for some tips to prevent complete and utter humiliation next time!). One of our HT-1650 massage chairs will be in the player’s lounge for their enjoyment during the tournament. We will also be one of 7 vendors at the 18th hole for visitors and players alike to peruse and try these beautiful massage chairs.
We are also working on an endorsement/advertising arrangement with Real Golf Radio, hosted by Brian Taylor and Bob Casper. They broadcast from right here in Utah, and have an estimated audience of 200,000 golfers across the nation and in the armed forces overseas. We are looking forward to this relationship. Bob and Brian are great fellows and are fast becoming great friends to Massage Chair Relief.
Our showroom continues to grow. We boast the largest massage chair showroom in the state of Utah, if not most of the surrounding states as well. Of course, the vast majority of massage chairs in our showroom are Human Touch massage chairs. They outsell the other manufacturers by far, from our experience. We will be introducing the iJoy and Perfect Chair in August to our showroom, bringing our total number of display massage chairs to 13.
Looking forward to an exciting August!!

Good for your health, short game and that big presentation at work
As you’re lying there face down listening to the panpipes of the Peruvian rainforest CD with only a skimpy towel between you and the massage therapist whose elbow is nearly piercing your left ventricle, you think to yourself – is this really worth it? Turns out, the answer is yes.
Massage is proven to provide several measurable benefits. And with Human Touch massage chairs, you can enjoy all the advantages of massage – and none of negatives of the day spa – wherever and whenever you desire.
By replicating the hands and techniques of highly trained massage therapists Humantouch massage chairs deliver serious benefits that can help you feel better, play better and perform better.
The health benefits of regular massage are many. Lowering blood pressure, for instance, can help reduce the chance of stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. Improving blood circulation increases the delivery of vital oxygen and nutrients to muscles and joints. And enhancing lymph flow stimulates the body to remove potentially damaging waste products and maintain its natural defense system.
Physically, frequent massage from high-end massage chairs is an integral part of many physical rehabilitation programs and chiropractic treatment plans. Human Touch massage chairs have proven to relieve back pain and sore muscles throughout the body, and are beneficial for alleviating chronic conditions, including arthritis and bursitis.
Equally important, Human Touch massage chairs can help improve mental state. Regular massage relaxes the body and mind, and releases endorphins, which relieves stress, increases relaxation and improves mood. And with reduced stress and tension comes deeper, more restorative sleep that makes the mind sharper at work and play.
Whether you’re playing 18 holes, climbing the corporate ladder or shuttling the kids to lacrosse, Humantouch makes it easy to enjoy the many benefits of massage at home or at work on your schedule. So you can get all the healthy physical and psychological advantages of regular massage, without the increasing costs, smelly oils and sharp elbows at the day spa.
