Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Long Beach, CA – September 29, 2010 – Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® Recliners, and other wellness solutions, is pleased to support National Women’s Health & Fitness Day on September 29, a national event designed to promote the importance of regular physical activity and health awareness for women. National Women’s Health & Fitness Day takes place each year on the last Wednesday in September. More than 100,000 women of all ages will participate in events at more than 1,400 local registered event sites throughout the U.S., on the same day.

dreamstime_4733407 Human Touch® is supporting this important awareness day by encouraging women of all ages and abilities to make healthy choices and incorporate physical activity into their regular lives, including massage therapy and relaxation techniques, to help them achieve a strong and balanced body and mind. Among the key benefits of massage therapy include reduced stress, reduced blood pressure, sore muscle relief, improved posture, and a strengthened immunity.

In addition to providing a wide range of award-winning, innovative massage and lifestyle products, the company offers health and wellness education through its Wellness Council, a group of esteemed experts dedicated to educating consumers about the important benefits of healthy living, massage therapy, proper posture, and relaxation. Human Touch® Wellness Council members include professional athletes, fitness professionals, doctors of Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Naturopathy, and massage therapists.

Jaime Tam, Ethnic-fusion Dancer and a Spiritual Yoga Instructor, a member of Human Touch’s Wellness Council, explains, “Fitness and physical movement, like massage are all essential to a balanced lifestyle. Movement is life, it keeps us fluid, invigorated and able to grow and prosper as individuals,” she said. “Many women today are high powered business entrepreneurs that have grand visions of their work. In order to achieve such success it is vital to discover ways to give back to oneself. In order to feed others we must be fed. “IMG_4094

To help women make fitness a part of their daily lives, Tam offers the following advice:

- Start with small steps: Less is more, so try to be consistent with a light introduction rather than a killer workout that will have you sore and out of commission for weeks!

- Try a few different fitness modalities: See what works for you. Dedicate a month to experimenting with different classes, such as boot camp, yoga, belly dance, hiking, etc. Then figure out a blend of what you’d like to stick with and create a schedule from there.

- Eat well!: Fitness is only half of it. Combine healthy green eating and cut out the white flour, white sugars and coffee!  Try supplementing with whole grains, agave nectar, honey, and organic chai teas with rice or soy milk instead.  Drink close to a gallon of water a day and keep your body fresh and fluid!
