Here is a sobering or inspiring news for “weekend warriors”; according to new research from a study done at Washington University School of Medicine in Missouri people eat more on Saturdays and exercise less on Sundays resulting in a positive calorie balance that may lead to weight gain in non dieters and slowed or stopped weight loss for dieters.
What to do? Be mindful of your weekend intake and fully enjoy the time you have to put towards creative and exciting new ways to exercise; take a class, go for a hike, tackle yard and housework with an increased vigor and zeal. Remember daily exercise has another wonderful “side effect” of lowering your risk for many types of cancer including colon, liver, and pancreatic.
If you are concerned about being sore after exercise..ahh, that is where a great session of therapeutic downtime can be employed in your Human Touch massage chair-good for you!

Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors and can be quite debilitating to those who have to live with this condition on a regular basis. Some pain can be managed with medication, but after a while the effectiveness of the medication loses its potency, and an alternative must be sought out. As many people who suffer from back pain will tell you, one of the best ways to manage this pain is therapeutic massage rather than simply medication.
Therapeutic massage targets the source of the back pain in individuals and helps to work out knots in muscles and tense areas in order to get the body back into better condition. There are many benefits of regular therapeutic massage that reach far beyond pain management.
Relaxation and Stress Management
Therapeutic massage helps the body to relax and release stress and tension that are at the root of the problem. Endorphins are released, helping to reduce pain and aid in the euphoric feeling of deep, restorative relaxation. Regularly participating in therapeutic massage serves to help people manage these stresses in a more productive manner.
Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion
Another benefit of regular therapeutic massage is that the muscles begin to adapt and are easier to massage over time. This allows the person to have greater flexibility because their muscles are no longer knotted up and tight. Greater flexibility, in turn, grants the individual a greater range of motion as a residual result.
Circulation of blood and lymph is improved through persistent use of therapeutic massage as well, allowing oxygen-rich blood to flow through the body and musculature with more facility, benefiting the individual in many ways.
Manage Your Back Pain and Change Your Quality of Life
There are other benefits of regular therapeutic massage, but the ultimate goal of the massage is to improve the quality of life of the individual suffering from pain. Using the Human Touch massage chair for managing back pain is a great way for individuals to be able to realize the benefits of therapeutic massage on a regular basis, from the comfort of home. If you suffer from persistent back pain or would like to reap the many benefits of regular therapeutic massage, get a Human Touch massage chair for your home today.

Therapeutic massage helps prevent and ease recurrent back pain
Therapeutic massage from high-end massage chairs has been proven to deliver serious back pain relief for both one-time injuries and chronic conditions. Human Touch massage chairs improve the flow of oxygen-rich blood and prompt the body to release endorphins – the body’s natural painkiller – to relieve muscle pain, tension and stiffness.
In fact, 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.
And once you’re up and moving about, frequent massage can keep you that way by gently and gradually stretching and manipulating muscles, joints and ligaments to promote ongoing back health.
Before that next fateful bend, reach or stretch, slowly extend your arm to your computer and see how Human Touch massage chairs can help you prevent and relieve back pain.
