Why Massage Chairs Are Now More in Demand?
Massage therapy is one of the most ancient and effective ways to unwind the body and mind. Massages help to prevent and treat back, shoulder, and neck discomfort, as well as to relieve anxiety and depression, promote circulation, and preserve appropriate posture.
Massage therapy is very beneficial workers who mostly work at the desk. Although it may not appear so, desk bound employees have a physically demanding job.
Neck, shoulder, and back pain can result from the stress, pain, and imbalance acquired from long hours of sitting in a chair.
When it comes to avoiding such problems, regular exercises, frequent stretching while at work, sitting in an ergonomic and comfortable chair with suitable neck and foot supports, and maintaining a healthy position are all vital.
Massage treatment, on the other hand, calms and soothes all of the body’s stress and physical pain.
Given the benefits, it’s no surprise that more people are incorporating regular massages into their workout routine.
Massage chairs are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience, mobility, and time efficiency.
Although massages are traditionally done by massage therapists, massage chairs are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience, mobility, and time efficiency.
With increasing disposable income, massage chairs are becoming a coveted item that can be found in homes.
As more brands enter the massage chair industry, the chairs are becoming more affordable as competition among manufacturers rise. According to Reports and Data, the massage chair market is expected to register robust growth in the coming years.
Massage Chairs Becoming Technologically Advanced
Massage chairs are available with a variety of functions. Many massage chairs use pressing, swaying, and rolling movements to target pressure spots all over the body.
Some places provide Swedish massages with mild kneading movements. There are also zero-gravity chairs, which recline to a zero-gravity position for massaging.
Technology is advancing rapidly in the massage chair industry and many modern massage chairs use technologies like optical and pressure sensors to assess the body before starting a treatment.
The chairs then utilize this information to modify the rollers’ range to meet the user’s height and shape properly.
One massage chair will even “prescribe” a massage. The Cozzia Qi comes with a biometric scanning system called Chair Doctor, which evaluates the body’s tension and then provides a custom-tailored massage therapy.
Massage chairs are mechanical; thus, they lack the personal touch of a therapist’s massage. Rollers, on the other hand, have come a long way.
Massage chairs featuring 2D, 3D, and even 4D rollers are now available that can provide an excellent back massage.
For other parts of the body, airbags are commonly installed from head to toe in today’s massage chairs.
These airbags function in tandem with rollers to treat places that rollers can’t reach, such as the outer shoulders, sides of the thighs, arms, and hands, as well as a variety of other areas that rollers can’t reach, such as the hips, calves, and feet.
Advantages of Massage Chairs
Though massage chairs may not be as good as a masseuse, there are certain advantages of using a massage chair, that goes beyond the monetary expense.
Availability and Time
Time is maybe the most valuable expenditure of all and a massage chair is extremely time efficient.
The user does not have to travel to the therapist’s office and back and does not have to make a reservation.
No masseuse is available 24/7. But a chair is and it can be fitted very conveniently around a hectic schedule and can even be used in the middle of the night by those who suffer from chronic pain and need a massage for any kind of relief.
Some people enjoy going to the spa or want the whole massage experience, which includes oils, meditation music, calming scents, and soft lighting.
Massage chairs have attempted to imitate these features, by including music system, chromotherapy lights, etc.
Consistency is another element. A massage chair can’t be anything but consistent because it’s a mechanical gadget.
A massage therapist, especially if the customer uses a new therapist every time, may or may not be consistent. With a massage chair, the user can be assured that the massage received one day will be the same massage received the next day, which is a powerful argument for some customers.
Finally, reclining on a massage chair at home is far more private than laying on a table in an office.

While this amount of seclusion may not be important to some, others, such as those who suffer from sciatic nerve pain, may not feel completely comfortable having their backs massaged.
