Heated Massage Chairs are popular today because the heat helps relax tense muscles and makes the massage more enjoyable.
Heated Massage chairs have evolved over the past few years. Nowadays, they’re technologically advanced and are embedded with all sorts of features that make the massage more beneficial and enjoyable.
These features include zero gravity, airbag massage, 3D and 4D massages, and body scanning technology. In addition, one highly advantageous feature your massage chair shouldn’t be lacking in is the heat therapy with abundant heat settings.
Below you'll find the reasons why you should get a heated massage chair and the beneficial effects of heat during the massage.
You might have tried a Spa, a Jacuzzi or a hot tub before and experienced their pain-relieving effects. Such effects are attributed, not only to the jet stream but mainly to the hot temperature of the water itself. The heat has a healing reaction on the body.
Heated massage chairs make use of the healing potentials of heat therapy in order to elevate their massage performance, without the need for water.
Dedicated heat massage chairs are rarely available. Instead, heat therapy is incorporated as one of the features in regular massage chairs. It’s achieved through the use of heat pads distributed in various parts of the chair. They usually cover the upper body including the neck, the back, and the lumbar region. There are also pads for the thighs and sometimes the calves.
After long days of work, intensive exercising or physical labor, your muscles become sore and tense. Applying heat to your muscles loosens them and helps release all the tension and stress that have accumulated in them.
Cramping happens due to the muscles receiving insufficient amounts of oxygen due to bad blood circulation. Physios have always treated cramps for professional athletes through heat, as it helps loosen the tight muscles. The heated massage has the same result in getting rid of cramps.
Heat therapy not only helps with sore muscles, but it also has useful effects on the different joints. When the stress and strain diminish in your body, the joints are able to move with more flexibility.
Mental Stress Relief
All the previous effects of heated massage lead to the most important aspect: mental relief. Being pain-free and feeling relaxed can, in turn, lead to your mental well-being and happiness.
Back Pain Relief
Due to the current style of work, a lot of people sit in their offices on uncomfortable chairs for hours in front of computer screens. The body part that’s most affected by this is the back, especially the lower back, due to gravity.
The continuous strain on the back causes the spine to compress. In turn, this makes it hard for the body to efficiently circulate the oxygen and nutrients around.
Performing heated massage to the lower back area helps reduce the strain and decompress the spine. Thus, allowing the free flow of oxygen and nutrients.
