The Newest Headlines Surrounding Massage Chairs and Human Touch

Over the years, I’ve consulted with numerous orthopedists about fitness related injuries. The consensus is that most exercisers ignore the early and standard warning signs of even potentially serious situations. Continuing to push into pain will significantly increase the downtime needed for repair. In some cases, this will result in permanent damage. Denial of pain leads to greatly increased damage.

So how can you tell whether you have an injury..or simply a passing ache? The following three “red flags” tell you to stop the activity for a while and get treatment. Most of the potential injuries I’ve experienced in the last 30 years were evident during exercise or when getting a massage in my Human Touch chair. Once identified, I took a few days off, applied the appropriate treatment, and none of these became a real injury. I’ve had the similar success in advising thousands of others.

1) Inflammation.
     Swelling around an area that is used during exercise is a sign of injury or impending injury. I suggest taking at least 3 days off from exertion of the inflamed area. Your doctor may know of medications or treatments that can reduce the swelling so that healing can proceed.

2) Loss of function.
     If the muscle, foot, joint, etc. does not work correctly then stop the activity. Consult with your medical team to treat the problem.

3) Pain is your body’s sign that something is wrong. Usually a brief vacation from exercise with immedate treatment can get healing on track.

Finishing the workout, when there is only 5 minutes left can dramatically increase the time needed for healing. Getting the right advice on treatment can dramatically speed recovery. Massage therapy, including the use of a Human Touch massage chair, can be very effective, especially in muscle injuries. As always, get your doctor’s advice before any treatment mode is used.

Thank you for the introduction to the Human Touch Zero Gravity Massage Chair. This is the best design combination in your family of chairs. The “zero gravity” position in combination with the robotic massage unit creates a significant advantage in the industry. It to me is the front runner in the market place of robotic chairs.

I have these chairs available for patients in my office for pre/post care with the Chiropractic adjustment. I have many patients that utilize the therapeutic effects of the chairs each visit. It is a tremendous asset in my care plan to offer the chairs benefit to calm the muscles, which are part of the vertebral subluxation complex, after an adjustment to clear interference to the quality and quantity of muscle tone.

I have many patients with an array of neuromuscular conditions like fibromyalgia. The patient notices the benefit of relaxation and I, as a Doctor of Chiropractic, notice a greater change in the tone of the muscle after the “perfect massage chair” is incorporated into a care plan. My patients certainly feel an extra benefit in my office with the use of the Human Touch Robotic Massage chairs. Thank you for your continued support and revolutionary technology.

In Good Health,

Find a buddy if you wish to stay with your New Year’s intention of exercise success

Are you looking for a simple and fun way to dramatically improve your chances of staying with your goal to exercise the rest of your life? Get a partner to exercise with you!

According to a new study performed at the University of Indiana, people who exercise with their partners or with a friend “let go” of their exercise program only 6% of them time-however, those who went “solo” dropped out over 40% of the time. Good news for you! Being social creatures that we are, simply find someone who has a similar fitness goal, similar ability and go after it together!

January intentions are coming fast-seek to set intentions that inspire you-be grateful for the opportunity to choose and go for your best!
