Posture check! Back straight, throw your shoulders back, and stick out your chest.
This sounds like a chore to keep up with, but the long-lasting benefits of maintaining a good posture are insurmountable. Regardless if you’re working long hours in the office, out there doing hard labor, or just staring at a computer screen for an extended amount of time, we all unintentionally slip into a bad posture now and then. What’s important is that we teach our bodies to prevent it from being the default by stretching every few hours, regular exercise, using pillows to support your lumbar area. A great supplement to this is with a massage chair like the Infinity Genesis Max, which, along with other benefits, is designed to help your back get back on track.
Why is it important to keep a good posture?
Growing up, it might have been annoying getting nagged about this by adults, but it’s for a good reason. Keeping your back from slouching does more than just make you look slightly taller. Our tonic, or “slow-twitch” muscles, are responsible for keeping our bodies in good posture. These muscles go unused when we’re slouching and put extra pressure on our phasic muscles instead. Whenever muscles are underutilized, they shrink and get weaker, resulting in our bad posture becoming the norm. This result is dangerous because bad posture exacerbates muscle pains and makes us more prone to fatigue.
Massage Chair to the Rescue
Alongside the usual ways we can prevent bad posture, like regular exercise and stretching, a massage chair can further improve the condition of your back. Massage chairs relax the muscles in your back to release the stress that has built up over time from work and other activities. When these muscle tensions are relieved, your body will be more flexible, and will naturally correct itself. More advanced massage chairs also use heat therapy to improve blood circulation in places like the lumbar region, which is the part that usually suffers most from a bad posture.
What Else Can It Do?
Elite massage chairs offer a vast array of massage options in addition to helping you keep your back in a proper form. Models like the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid Massage chair are equipped with a whopping 50 built-in airbags that inflate and deflate to massage muscles all around the body. They also offer the zero-gravity experience, which further reduces the pressure on your muscles and joints and gives you a weightless feeling while sitting down. And last but not least, the convenience of having them in your home means you don’t have to take additional steps just to get some good rest and relaxation. Just sit down during a break and allow the massage chair to take all that stress away.
A good posture could mean the difference between a good and a bad day, and with all the stuff we already have to go through every day, that’s a big deal. Our body could use all the help it can get just to keep itself from falling apart, so we should spare no expense in giving it the support it needs. With a massage chair, you can say goodbye to bad posture and welcome all the great massage treatments it can provide. It’s the one and probably the only tool you need to prevent muscle pains and fatigue from ever ruining your day again!
