Massage chairs have gained popularity exponentially as you see them at your local spas, beauty salons, hairdressers, some shops, and even at the homes of friends and relatives where they casually sit claiming their place among other household furniture. Seeing these robotic chairs everywhere might make you think why massage chairs are so popular and exactly how they work. In the following text, we aim to answer these questions and more which will tell us everything that accounts for the popularity of this latest technology.
A massage chair is a comfortable single-seating sofa which aims to replicate therapeutic massages in sessions where one session accounts for the time you spend on the chair before getting up from it. Now, you might be wondering what goes on during a therapy session in a massage chair. While this largely depends on the different models of massage chairs, the gist of these sessions is to mimic professional masseurs in order to relieve the tension in one’s joints and muscles, and to make one feel more relaxed and rejuvenated.
What are the basic components of massage chairs?
The heart of a massage chair is its motor. This motor is responsible for running every other component of the massage chair which is then responsible for giving you the massage you desire. If the massage chair does not have a fully functioning, long lasting motor then the overall performance of the massage chair suffers. A good massage chair realizes that its motor needs to be on par with the rest of its parts and such chairs usually offer a good warranty on their motors.
Along with the motor, a massage chair comes with an assortment of mechanical parts and features to simulate a human-like touch to its massages. These include rollers, kneaders, nodes, and recliners. All of these parts are meant to massage those difficult to reach dents and places in the body which need to be pinpointed and relaxed. Among them the most significant feature is the rollers which are abundantly present in all massage chairs and run up and down one’s back to create the truest sensation of a massage.
Have today’s massage chairs incorporated additional advancements into their system?
Recently, massage chairs have been becoming more and more customizable. The first step into this subtle shift in trend was the emergence of chairs which are adjustable to the user’s body length and width. These seat adjustments provide a way for the user to fit well into the chair as the chair adjusts to his specific dimensions. With the incorporation of seat adjustments, massage chairs are now more capable of reaching every part of the body for a true full body massage.
Not just this but massage chairs also come with a remote which makes it possible to adjust the robotic chair’s intensity, speed, and type of massage settings. The possibilities have been endless with massage chairs as their design and program ability continues to grow and evolve.
