Benefits of a Massage Chair Post-Workout
There are many benefits to having a massage chair in your home. One such benefit would be the use of the chair after you have had a vigorous workout. Whether you are a weekend warrior, professional athlete or someone that falls in-between, your body will need plenty of attention to be able to maintain a healthy fitness lifestyle.
After your work-out your body will prosper from attention to your muscles. If you knead your muscles after intense activity, it will break down the lactic acid that occurs during exercise. If you are suffering from an injury or ailment, gentle stimulation from a massage chair will keep you muscles supple and encourage rehabilitation. The vibration a massage chair provides will vibrate the tendons and ligaments to keep them loose and flexible. If you focus on keeping the soft tissue healthy while your muscles are in the recovery phase, you will shorten your overall recovery time considerably.
Some massage chairs actually have sports massage. If your chair, or one you are considering buying, does not have a specific sports mode there is still hope. Programs such as acupressure, reflexology, Swedish massage, deep tissue or shiatsu massage will all extremely benefit an athlete. Many massage chairs even have built in heaters that will help reduce and treat any swelling that may occur.
Sometimes you may choose to use your massage chair before you go and workout. A massage increases the blood flow and warms the muscles up while simultaneously relaxing the body. If you are heading into a competition you can use this time to relax your mind and prepare for what lays ahead. Now that you have primed your body, you will be at peak performance level for whatever you decide to attempt.
If your fitness routine doesn’t get you tired enough, you can use your massage chair to wind down at the end of the day. A twenty minute deep massage session will relax the body and make getting to sleep easier. This is a great option if you suffer from insomnia.
If you like to workout and have strong interest in fitness, then a massage chair will literally benefit every aspect of your fitness routine.
