We could all do with a regular massage, whether it’s to relieve the stress of work or family life, or to soothe away those aches and niggles. Massage has been around for almost as long as people, but the age of technology has moved on with various massage devices. The ultimate is the massage chair.
What Are Massage Chairs?
Massage chairs are sophisticated padded chairs, often reclining, that offer a range of electrically driven massage techniques. There were simple massage chairs decades ago, but modern versions have been steadily growing in popularity. As the BBC website showed, they were a massive hit at the CES show in Las Vegas last year.
As a society, we’re gradually waking up to the importance of massage in general. Even if we don’t suffer for now from back pain or sore muscles, everyday stress can lead to a whole range of alarming symptoms. For some sections of the population, they’re especially important. A few years ago, the Telegraph, reporting on Tesco’s experimental supermarket for the elderly, mentioned that massage chairs were an important inclusion.
