A massage chair is a chair that has springs and rollers in it to provide a massaging effect on the person sitting in it. It is typically used for relaxation and may also be used for therapeutic purposes such as recovery from injury, pain relief, or relaxation. These chairs may also be referred to as “massage recliners” or “massage sofas” because they are often more oversized chairs that can support more than one person at a time.
How Do They Work?
There are many different mechanisms by which a massage chair can provide a therapeutic massage while someone sits in it. The tool is straightforward. Some chairs feature rollers on the bottom of the chair that is turned by a motor, some have a water massage function, and some have air massage functionality.
- Rollers on the Bottom of the Chair that is Turned by a Motor
The massager’s head rotates to a preset angle at high speed, first lifting the top of the subject’s feet and then moving towards their lower back, thereby stimulating all layers of muscles in both legs and thighs. How does this help? This type of massage helps relieve pain and stiffness in joints such as knees, hips, hips, lower back, or ankles. It also relieves tension through deep tissue massage. The motor can be set to any preferred strength and rhythm for each massage session.
The motorized roller massager is a kind of massage chair that is more convenient for use in homes, offices, or massage centers. It has rollers on its bottom, which move under the force of a motor. The chair has a vibration option that can be applied to the rollers with a gentle push of the green button. The movement is very similar to a cyclone with higher pressure points and lower pressure points. The rotation can be adjusted to meet users’ needs of different shapes and sizes simply by moving the knob on the left or right side of the chair. The strength and speed of the vibrations can also be adjusted.
- Water Massage Function
The function of the pneumatic massage chair with water massage is to infuse water into the airflow from a blower to make a wet, humid environment, which increases the comfort of sitting on the chair. It also adds weight and pressure from sitting on it. In essence, this device increases your skin surface area to air contact and improves blood circulation by making a wet environment for your skin that will open up more pores and increase blood flow through them.
The air is cooled, and moisture is created when water is sprayed into the blower. When the air reaches a temperature of 15°C, it’s cooled to 11°C with the help of the water in the air. This coolness stimulates sweat glands in your body, and when you inhale, you get a cool/moist environment in your lungs which induces perspiration. It also adds weight to your body when you sit on it. Cold air temperature reduces blood flow in capillaries, which causes vasodilation to improve circulation out to the skin surface. It increases blood flow through arteries to heart muscles, whereby increased heart rate and pumped blood are beneficial for health.
Water serves several purposes. It promotes comfort and reduces fatigue because your body absorbs it better than air. It also cools the air to lower the air temperature to a more comfortable level for you. At the same time, it has been shown to have a therapeutic effect on various complaints from arthritic conditions to Parkinson’s disease and other ailments that cause fatigue.
The “water” used in this massage therapy is not rivers and lakes; water is sprayed into the blower by an injection pump. The machine also has two fans to accelerate and stabilize the flow of water inside the blower and thus make the water flow much faster and smoother than if it were coming out through a hose. hence the term “quick release.” The advantage of using the two fans is accelerating and stabilizing water flow inside the blower and making it flow much faster and smoother than it was to come out through a hose. It is to prevent back pressure and provide enough water pressure, just the way it should be.
- Air Massage Functions
A massage chair with air massage functionality is a particular massage chair with an air pump and a small fan inside. An intricate yet straightforward system winds and turns the tiny propeller-shaped hub of the fan around slowly, suspending it at various levels in the air. A person sitting on the chair will feel its powerful airflow as it moves up and down within seconds; this movement creates a soothing sensation that is as comfortable as an ordinary armchair’s and provides relief for muscles.
Gentle gestures such as swinging arms, circling them back and forth, or shaking hands can activate smooth airflow from one side to another. At the same time, there is a certain degree of flexibility in the chair’s seat. When a customer sits on it, he can move his body comfortably up and down. This way, there is no need for him to use any force whatsoever when moving his body. When people are carrying out various movements in their daily lives, they often need to work against gravity or overcome inertia within their bodies.
Relieving foot pain is one of the features of an air massage chair, which can be found in most massage parlors nowadays. It is achieved by heating the foot area, compressing it, and massaging it thoroughly for better blood circulation.
Water massage, air massage, and vibration are the three valuable features of the pneumatic massage chair. They are easy to use for any user that has minimal training. It is one of the best massage chairs in the market, with extended-lasting capabilities in its functions.
