Benefits of Massages as You Age
As we age it is important to take care of our health and in addition to eating right and keeping physically active, frequent massages can provide therapeutic benefits that contribute to your overall wellbeing.
Massages have been shown to help with the following:
- Improve Blood Circulation
- Increase Joint Flexibility
- Reduction of Pain
- Reduction of Swelling
- Decreased Stress
- Improve Sleep
- Much more.
However, visiting a massage therapist every day is not convenient, cost-effective, or feasible for most. It may also be challenging to use self-massage products at home as we age as we become limited in our mobility or strength and desired results may require more effort than anticipated. This is where a massage chair can be a worthy investment in your health. Having a massage chair at home allows you to receive a proper massage whenever you want without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Many types of massage chairs exist and providing different experiences. For a gentle, yet effective massage, we recommend the GT700. The GT700 offers an advanced massage that is not as intense as other models and focuses on relaxation with gentle, adjustable pressure and stretching. Very simple to use with pre-programmed massages, it is also our only massage model that comes built in with a Negative Oxygen Ion Generator. Negative Oxygen Ions have been shown to increase oxygen to the brain, which results in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy according to Pierce J. Howard, PHD. The GT700 performs five massage styles (shiatsu, kneading, tapping knocking, and combined kneading and tapping) and utilizes automatic detections to scan the body and provide the best possible massage.
Give yourself the gift of better health and deeper relaxation. Remember Health is Wealth!
