Many people consider a massage chair an oversized toy that lacks any real health benefits; unfortunately there are too many stores that sell massage chairs based on this principle.  Here at Relax The Back we do not look at massage chairs in this light, we instead choose to focus on the extremely useful benefits that these chairs offer.  Massage Chairs come in many different shapes, sizes and contain many different functions.  The only way to properly pick out the massage chair that is right for you is to try them, every massage chair feels different and only you can decide which one is the best for you is to try them out.  Every massage chair feels different to different people, luckily at Relax The Back we have Nevada’s widest selection of massage chairs in our showroom for you to try out.  One of our greatest partners in the spinal health field is Human Touch.  Human Touch manufactures many of our most popular products, including zero gravity recliners and a majority of our massage chair options.  


Massage chairs are an extremely beneficial tool in regards to your health, the Human Touch Wellness Center has this to say on the subject, “ Things that contribute to good health like going to the doctor, sweating at the gym, and taking all those supplements aren’t always pleasant. But there is something that has been proven to promote mind and body wellness that people can enjoy at home, whenever they want, while enjoying a good book, watching TV or even falling asleep.

            Regular massage offers several measurable health benefits that help promote everyday health. By increasing circulation, your body can pump more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and vital organs, which promotes faster healing and a return to a health state. Regular massage also stimulates the lymph system – the body’s natural defense against toxic invaders – to help avoid sickness and promote an overall sense of wellbeing. And massage prompts the body to release endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller, easing sore, tired muscles.

            Beyond physical benefits, massage helps reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue, and allow the body and mind to be better in tune. This is significant when considering both short- and long-term stress triggers changes in the body increasing the likelihood of getting sick, raising the risk of serious conditions like heart disease, and can make problems we already have worse.

            In summary, the cumulative effects of regular massage can strengthen and tone the entire body to help prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension. Never has something so comfortable, indulgent and convenient helped so many people feel better, play better and perform better.”


            The Human Touch Wellness Center also comments on the use of a massage chair for those who suffer from chronic pain by stating, “ For those suffering with chronic pain, even life’s simplest tasks can be difficult and excruciating. Walking up stairs is like climbing Everest. Office chairs become medieval torture devices. And the airport is running a marathon in bare feet ... on glass. But even worse than all that is the defeated belief that the pain will be there forever – and there’s nothing to do about it.

            Fortunately, there is a way to help alleviate some of this pain to help chronic pain sufferers maintain good quality of life. Regular massage is an integral part of many physical rehabilitation programs and chiropractic treatment plans. It has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis and fibromyalgia.

            Additionally, regular massage increases circulation, which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and vital organs, promoting faster healing. It also prompts the body to release endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller, easing sore, tired muscles. And equally significant, regular massage relieves stress and contributes to deeper, more restorative sleep, helping improve physical and mental wellness.”
