Human Touch products utilize the benefits of massage to those that use them. I have offered the Human Touch massage chairs in my office for nearly ten years as a supplement to my Chiropractic practice. The addition of the massage chairs pre or post care is a patient enhancement. It adds comfort, relaxation and a therapeutic element to traditional chiropractic care. Depending on the selected program or the type of massage, there are many effects that can be offered to the user.
One tip that I offer to you is the ability to alter the reclined positions while using the massage chair. You can manually recline to enhance the experience and improve the chairs effects on your spinal muscles. People with moderate lower back pain can be more comfortable by sitting in an upright with no recline or less than 20-25 degrees of backrest tilt. You can also create a more comfortable position by only lifting the footrest up to 45 degrees. Changing the parameters of your seated position has an effect on the lumbar muscles and it will decrease the amount of load to them.
The innovation of inducing passive motion into your spine to increase mobility is a unique feature to the Human Touch massage chairs. This type of massage can be used with other features simultaneously with kneading or percussion. The ability to choose individual types of programming is as great feature in helping provide comfort, relaxation, or relief to a structure under stress.
Choosing to use Human Touch products in your home, work, or in a healthcare practice can be a valuable tool in assisting the management of low back pain.
