Massage Chairs for Stress Relief

By | May 4, 2018

Stress has become a part of our culture– a big part. You went to work early this morning to catch up from yesterday, and immediately got called into a meeting, where, of course, you were given even more to do. Angry phone calls and urgent messages took up most your time, frustrating your plan of actually catching up today. The intern, who sits right by you of course, was smacking gum all day, and the papers on your desk seemed to be taking a cue from the rabbit farm. Leaving late, more behind that you were this morning, you snag your jacket on a wire and a three inch long rip appears. You get to your car, and there is a brand new crack in your windshield waiting for you. Traffic is slower than you’ve ever seen, but you finally make it home.

Are you upset? tense? stressed? No wonder! Every day brings something new to do that should have been done yesterday; your son’s math homework gets orange juice spilled on it, you can’t find your keys, and the garbage truck left the can in your driveway. I’m getting stressed just writing about it!

You know you should relax, but every time you try to stop the chaos, something still looms in the back of your mind like the monster in your childhood closet. It is tough to let go by yourself, to admit that it’s ok to relax for a while. HoMedics massage chairs are here to help. As soon as you sit down and let it start kneading your back, one by one the stresses of the day slip away.

Massage is a wonderfully effective tool for stress relief, as well as for helping with pain and stiffness. It may seem odd, but we all “store” stress in different places and muscles. I have this spot directly under my right shoulder where there seems to be a permanent knot. When my hips or back get out of whack, all I have to do is apply pressure to that knot and everything straightens out again. I’m a definite believer in the healing properties of massage, but who can afford to go to a massage therapist every night? That’s more money and time than I know I can spare. However, you can come home to your own personal massage therapist whenever you want– and it doesn’t charge by the minute or make you sit in a waiting room!

HoMedics’ reputation was built on its back and body massagers, and they continue to lead the industry. It has been in business for 25 years, and is still family owned. Their main concern is improving the lives of consumers, and this is evident in all of their products.

There are HoMedics massage chairs and products for anything that ails you. They are especially advanced in the area of shiatsu massage, which originated in Japan in the early 1900’s.  According to the Japanese medical department of the Ministry of Welfare, “Shiatsu technique refers to the use of fingers and palm of one’s hand to apply pressure to particular sections on the surface of the body for the purpose of correcting the imbalances of the body, and for maintaining and promoting health.” HoMedics has taken this to a new level by really making the massage chair feel like the practiced hands of a shiatsu masseuse.

HoMedics massage chairs also allow you to choose exactly which kind of massage you want; you can choose from Shiatsu or Rolling massage, Full, Lower, or Upper Back in either massage style, as well as Spot Shiatsu massage- concentrated on the spot you need it most, like my right shoulder. They also feature command track control, so by just pushing a button you can adjust the roller width to fit your body perfectly. These seats are adjustable, as well, so they fit the tallest person in your family and the shortest (if you ever decide to let someone else sit in it!)

So give yourself a break after a long day, a short day or anytime you want. Sit down and put your feet up, your comfortable massage chair is there waiting to help you unwind and bring your body back to its natural, relaxed state.
