Benefits of Massage Therapy for Active People
Keeping physically active is important for overall health, but some people struggle with the recovery period that follows. Massages are a great way to reduce soreness, inflammation, and shorten recovery time, but seeing a massage therapist after every workout isn’t feasible. There are ways to self-massage at home, but these methods might take more effort than desired or not yield sought results. This is where a massage chair at home can come in handy. A proper massage chair can provide you with a massage comparable to what you may receive at a massage therapist, but with the convenience of being at home and available at any time.
According to the American Massage Therapy Association, research has shown that a massage after participating in athletic activities can help with the following:
- Reduce muscle tension
- Help athletes monitor muscle tone
- Promote relaxation
- Increase range of motion
- Improve soft tissue function
- Support the recovery of heart rate variability and diastolic blood press after high-intensity exercise
- Decrease muscle stiffness and fatigue after exercise
- Improve exercise performance
- Decrease delayed onset muscle soreness
- Reduce swelling
- And much more.
These benefits are achievable with a proper massage and Fujimi’s TS7500 delivers. Out of our massage chair lineup, the TS7500 offers the most Intense massage, providing a deep tissue massage that helps athletes recover faster and perform better. The TS7500 tracks body specifics and automatically adjusts to provide the best possible massage while preprogrammed functions mean you don’t have to worry about anything but relax and let the chair work for you.
