Tuesday, December 02nd, 2014

Buying a massage chair is not a purchase that you make lightly. You simply don’t decide you want a massage chair, go to the store and buy one immediately. There is a lot of thought that goes into buying a massage chair.

Here are 5 things to know before you purchase the perfect massage chair.

  1. Budget
    There are many massage chairs ranging in all different price points. It is important to keep a budget in mind when you go out and begin to search for the perfect chair for you. It will narrow down your options.
  2. Where are you going to place it?
    Have an idea of where you want to place your future massage chair. You want to keep this space in mind as you shop around, some chairs might need more space. You don’t want to buy a chair and realize you have no proper place for it.
  3. Consult with a doctor before you invest in a massage chair
    It is always important to consult with your primary physician before you decide to invest in a massage chair. It may seem silly, but you always want to be safe than sorry.
  4. What color and material are you looking for in a massage chair?
    Massage chairs come in all different colors and materials. You want to make sure your future massage chair will look great with your home décor. Not to mention, having a particular color in mind will help narrow your choices down.
  5. Test out the massage chair
    All massage chairs look great on paper and pictures, but it is important to test it out and get a feel for it. Perhaps the chair is too small or too big for your body size or perhaps you just don’t like the way it massages you. Test it out before taking it home.

We have been sold on the idea that getting a massage is a luxury, a way to indulge ourselves. Many believe a massage is something we should only treat ourselves to every now and again whenever we need the “pampering.”

The reality is that a massage is not a luxury. It is much more than a way to spoil ourselves. There have been many studies confirming the health benefits associated with massage therapy.

According to the Mayo Clinic, “studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.”

Some studies have also shown that massage can

-          reduce fatigue
-          decrease anxiety
-          increase circulation
-          enhance the immune system
-          improve mood
-          enhance sleep quality

Massage can help us in many ways, so get a massage regularly! If going to a spa is too costly, then invest in a massage chair. The benefits you will receive will outweigh the cost. Everybody deserves a massage every day.

Here at Human Touch®, we not only provide wellness solutions, but we strive to give back to our community. We are strong believers that when you give back you are not only helping others, but you are also helping yourself. There is a warm, happy feeling people get when they give back.

This month we were presented with the opportunity to support our Long Beach Community and donate to the 2014 Blue Martini Fundraise Ball.  The Blue Martini Ball is held every year to raise funds for the Food For Kids Program.  This program delivers weekend food relief to elementary students living below the poverty line. We are thankful to be able to help out, but most importantly, we are thankful for the Food For Kids Program and all the work they do.
