The Newest Headlines Surrounding Massage Chairs and Human Touch

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Long Beach, CA (September 12, 2011) – Human Touch®, the U.S. leader of innovative massage chairs and wellness products, is currently offering its Upgrade to Wellness promotion for its Zero-Gravity Perfect Chairs. Now through October 16, customers can purchase a Human Touch® Perfect Chair® and upgrade from bonded leather to a Premium Leather Pad at no additional cost, a $500 value.

The Perfect Chair’s sleek and elegant design and Zero-Gravity engineering make it a great way to relieve the soreness, tension, and fatigue caused by earth’s constant gravitational pulling on the body. 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. This results in pain and stress relief, improved relaxation, increased blood flow and circulation, more restorative and better quality sleep, as well as other key wellness benefits. The Perfect Chair® Recliner comes in a variety of styles and colors, ranging in price from $1,999 to $3,499 MSRP.

“The Perfect Chair’s design relies upon a very simple principle, which is to place the body in a position when reclined, which effectively distributes gravitational forces evenly across the entire body thus reducing stress on any one region of the body,” explains President of Precision Biometrics and Ergonomics Expert David Marcarian, MA, who is also an esteemed member of Human Touch’s Wellness Council. “This powerful yet elegant design allows for a more perfect position for those experiencing back pain, neck pain and general pain syndromes by reducing ‘single point’ stressors as found with normal chairs.”

For a limited time, the Upgrade to Wellness promotion is being offered with the following Perfect Chairs: PC-6 Classic Manual, PC-075 Silhouette, and PC-095 Classic Power and excludes the PC-085 Transitional and PC-086 Serenity®.

Pain Management with Massage and Aromatherapy
by Mindy Green

Nothing is more debilitating than incessant, nagging pain. Pain can stem from a variety of causes, sometimes difficult to pinpoint, but many symptoms can be managed with an effective combination of massage and essential oils. Massage is often associated with relaxation and relief of muscle tension, both of which can help reduce pain, but massage with the added benefit of aromatherapy is even more effective for a wide variety of pain and discomfort. Neck tightness, headache, sore muscles, repetitive motion or impact injuries, post surgery inflammation, fibromyalgia, sciatica and many other types of pain can find relief with this blend of therapies. It is well studied that many natural aromas contribute to relaxation which can soothe the nervous system, a trigger for pain when the stressors of life prove too much. Pure plant essential oils may even cheer your mood and lift your spirits while providing liberation from your aches and pains.

Essential Oils for Pain:
Peppermint, birch and wintergreen are natural analgesics and help reduce the perception of pain.
Rosemary, ginger, black pepper, eucalyptus and juniper are circulatory stimulants for muscle relief.
Marjoram and lavender relieve cramping and spasms, and are useful for headache pain.
Frankincense, chamomile and helichrysum are effective antiinflammatories for a variety of issues that contribute to pain.
These essential oils can be diluted and used as an overall massage oil for general relief or targeted to spot treat painful areas. Use any combination of the oils suggested; add a total of 10 drops of a single oil or blend of essential oils to one ounce of massage oil or lotion and apply as often as needed.

Do not use on open wounds. For external use only.

Please leave a comment or ask me any questions you have.

Sincerely,
Mindy
