Human Touch Massage Chairs Recognized as a Valid Supplement to Back-Care Therapy

Long Beach, CA – April 5, 2010 – Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has received an exclusive endorsement by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) for its massage chairs as a valid supplement to back-care therapies.  The WFC is a professional organization comprised of national associations of chiropractors in 85 countries, representing them and the chiropractic profession in the international community.

After thoroughly testing the Human Touch® products, the WFC has concluded that Human Touch® massage chairs can serve as an important tool for back pain sufferers by helping to alleviate or prevent spinal stress, which leads to back pain and disability.  According to the WFC, over 80% or 8 out of 10 Americans will be disabled by back pain at some point during their lives and persistent /chronic back pain is the single most disabling condition for working-age Americans.

“The WFC is pleased to endorse and recommend Human Touch® products as a valuable tool for assisting in the treatment and care of back pain and spinal disorders due to their superior technology, quality, and ability to prevent or alleviate spinal stress,” said the WFC’s Vice President Michael Flynn, DC, Doctor of Chiropractic.  “I have highly recommended and continue to recommend Human Touch® products to individuals with back pain.  Combining the use of chiropractic care with the quality Human Touch® massage chair or Perfect Chair® Recliner with an active lifestyle and healthy diet is an excellent way to help back pain sufferers achieve optimum wellness.”

Among the Human Touch® products available, the Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair® Recliners and AcuTouch™ HT-7450 Zero-Gravity Massage Chairs are particularly ideal for assisting in back pain, spinal alignment, and posture.

  • · Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair®: Inspired by the Neutral Body Posture studied by NASA during the SkyLab program, the Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair® places the body in a virtually weightless position to provide relaxation and minimum muscle tension.  In this therapist-recommended position, the spine, hips, and knee joints are on or close to the balanced midpoint of the muscles.  Its sleek and elegant design and Zero-Gravity engineering make it into a great way to relieve the soreness, tension, and fatigue caused by the earth’s constant gravitational pulling on the body.  The Perfect Chair® Recliner comes in four different styles and in a variety of colors – the Zero Gravity Perfect Chair® Silhouette (PC-075), Perfect Chair Traditional (PC-085), Zero-Gravity Perfect Chair® Classic Manual (PC-6), and Classic Power (PC-095) Perfect Chair.  MSRP ranges from $1,899 to $2,499.
  • · AcuTouch™ HT-7450 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair: This top-of-the-line, award-winning robotic massage chair defies the clutches of gravity and adjusts to the individual’s body to fit like a glove.  It’s based on the patented Human Touch Technology®, which replicates the hands of a professional massage therapist.

“Not understanding yourself is not understanding the truth” ~Soen-Sa

I listen to these wise words and remind myself that our intuition and inner knowing is so critical during pregnancy.

I am currently moving into the fifth month of my first pregnancy and find the emotional waves of change very interesting and new each day. In this beautiful journey of deeply connecting to myself, there always seems to be a lot of outside influence and chatter going on. I have been learning that a lot of people around me think they are certain and accurate with all of their wives tales and predictions about how things will pan out. I try to let these statements and suggestions run through my own filter and return back to understanding myself, my intuition, and my own unique needs of Zen time, relaxation, and celebration of this sacred chapter of my life.

There is a plethora of information on the Internet, and everywhere else, about the dos and don’ts of pregnancy. I remember the first few months of my pregnancy being flooded with so many warnings of what not to do, making me feel so tense and constricted from my regular methods of relaxation.  Some of my friends said not to dance or get a massage. I was even warned to stay away from warm-hot showers, my favorite part of the day.

Although I do realize that there are necessary precautions to take while being pregnant, I feel that our modern world has gone a little crazy on every last detail. I am very mindful of eating healthy and getting plenty of rest. Another great saying I love to read during this special time is, “How beautiful it is to do nothing and then rest afterward”~ a Spanish Proverb.

Besides, when else in this magnificent life will a woman get the opportunity to really recline into a state of deep relaxation, ease, and inner bliss than during the nine months of pregnancy?

Photo 40Eat, relax, rest, walk, celebrate, eat, and rest some more. That is what most of my days are like and I feel blessed to live this daily routine. I enjoy taking full opportunity of my Human Touch® massage chair to help me unwind every evening with my husband sitting right next to me in his. Together we embrace the opportunity to simultaneously get recharged, eat great home cooked food, and watch a movie on our laptop as our bodies are at rest.

We live in a nation and era where having three jobs is actually normal. Overworking the brain and the body happens every day for most Americans. There is nothing more humbling than to simplify life in any way possible. I am happy to share that I am living a full year now without a cell phone, over 10 years without a television, and two years without a credit card. It is often when we are not inundated with a ton of superfluous bills and obligations that we have more time to better understand ourselves and connect with our inner truth.

So pull back, recline and rest when you can. We all deserve it!

Heal & Inspire!
