We are all different and we all have different ways of relaxing, but getting a massage is definitely one that works wonders for most people. There is nothing better than unwinding this way for at least a couple of minutes a day, but with the busy lifestyles that most of us lead, not many people have the time to visit a spa salon as often as they would want to. Luckily, the awesome invention of massage chairs has made getting a massage in the comfort of your home a piece of cake.
Besides being able to get a massage when you want and for as long as you need to, with a good full massage chair model, you will also be able to experience multiple techniques. However, buying a massage chair can be a hefty investment, so you need to do your homework before you splurge on a chair of this kind. Here are some of the suggested features to consider.
4D is the latest intelligent technology used in many full massage chair high-end models. This is a floating mechanism which is a combination of the 2D and 3D massage techniques providing the most amazing and comfortable experience. You can adjust its strength, depth, and angle. These chairs are equipped with the most extensive and advanced sensor technology which measures the complete range of spinal pressure points to determine the weight and height of the user. This enables the chair to focus the massage rollers on the needed points and ensure the most appropriate intensity allowing for the best-personalized massage experience.
This feature can be found in high-end massage chair models and when you use it, the chair places your body in the right position without sustaining its own weight, which is very similar to what zero gravity does in space. Depending on the model of the chair, it may offer multiple stages of zero gravity positions. The final one raises your legs to a height similar to your heart, allowing your heart to relax a bit and work more efficiently for a bit as it won’t have to push so hard to get all the blood down to your legs.
Air Compression Massage
You will find this feature in most full massage chair models – it uses airbags for an improved massage experience. There is a small air compressor inside the chair. The airbags will push against your muscles compressing and decompressing them. You can use this feature for most parts of your body, but the most common places where massage chairs have airbags are the shoulders, neck, arms, legs, hips, and feet. The more airbags a massage chair has, the better the massage experience it will deliver.
Body Scan Technology
One of the most amazing features you can find in a massage chair is the body scan. These chairs use a sensor that scans your spine and the other parts of your body so it can customize the massage according to your specific needs. It is a feature worth considering as any session with it will be an experience on a whole new level. For example, if you are shorter, you will not have the shoulder air cells beating against your neck, and if you’re taller, you won’t have them working on your back instead of the shoulders.
