Before astronauts take off from Earth, they recline in their spaceship chairs so that their feet lie above their head. Why? Because this position reduces the stress their bodies experience as their ships escape Earth's awesome gravity.
Now imagine applying the same principle to your body. Minus the eventual removal of all gravity and the fun ability to float around weightless, of course.
Sound intriguing? Sound perhaps impossible? Well, it's not. A zero gravity massage chair places your body in a position just like the one used by astronauts.
These technological marvels do more than just recline you, though. They also relieve stress while providing you with a great massage.
To get a better idea of how they work, keep reading:
Improved Circulation And Less Sore Muscles
Sitting and standing all day causes blood to pool in your legs. Zero gravity massage chairs alleviate this for a bit by reclining you so that your legs lie slightly above your heart. Why? Look to the science.
When the chair reclines your body, this lets blood flow away from your legs and through the rest of your body. This improves overall blood circulation to your muscles, including any sore ones.
Reclining your body also reduces the pressure on your heart. It gets to take a slight break from working so hard to keep your blood from pooling.
As a result, most people wind up feeling less sore and more energized after spending time on a zero gravity massage chair.
Relaxed Spine and Better Breathing
When you stand upright, 100 kg (220 pounds) of pressure presses down on your spine. And when you sit upright, the pressure rises to 140 kg (308 pounds).
But if and when you lie back on a zero gravity chair, the pressure drops dramatically. Mind you, this only applies if the chair reclines you to 130 degrees like our chairs do.
By reducing the pressure on your spine, zero gravity chairs also provide more space for your lungs to completely expand. This leads to more oxygen in your blood and body.
Combined, the reduction in spine stress and increase in lung room lend themselves toward some stellar stress relief.
Reduced Neck/Back Pain
One of the most recommended treatments for people suffering from neck/back pain is to lie down on a zero gravity chair. And the reason why should make perfect sense.
What runs through both the neck and back? If you guessed spine, you guessed correctly. And because zero gravity chairs reduce press on your spine, they also reduce pressure on your neck and back.
