Feeling better. Playing better. Performing better.

If you’re a professional athlete, you already know the many advantages of massage. It’s used in clubhouses, locker rooms and gigantic mansions every day around the world to help elite athletes perform at their best.

But even – and especially – former, recreational and reluctant (think: office softball game) athletes can greatly benefit from massage. And you don’t need a big-league income or a huge product endorsement deal to enjoy it. In fact, more and more athletes of all levels are discovering the convenience and effectiveness of at-home massage with top-quality massage chairs like the ones Human Touch® produces.

Regular massage in high-end massage chairs can help athletes prepare for, and recover from, strenuous activity in several ways. In fact, well before the starting gun, coin toss or first pitch, massage chairs reduce stress and promote deeper, more restorative sleep, helping athletes improve alertness and focus.

On game day, massage chairs stretch muscles, improve joint flexibility and increase blood flow to prepare the body to perform at its best. And after the action, athletes turn to massage chairs to relax and soften injured and overused muscles, reducing spasms and cramping, and reducing recovery time.

Additionally, regular massage increases blood flow to tired muscles, helping restore natural wellbeing more quickly, and promotes healthy lymph flow, which enables the body to more efficiently remove lactic acid and other potentially damaging waste products. And let’s not forget massage releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller, providing sweet relief for sore, aching muscles – so you can actually walk downstairs the day after that triple-overtime game.

Whether you’re a weekend warrior, pick-up basketball all-star, or the neighborhood lawn dart champion, everyone wants to perform at his or her best. Regular massage from Human Touch massage chairs can help.
