How a Massage Chair Can Improve Your Posture and Flexibility

Sore, stiff, tense… there are a lot of physical ailments that can affect your posture and flexibility. It could be caused by slouching at your desk or standing on your feet for too long at work. You could also strain yourself during an exercise session without proper stretching and cool down. The good news is using an Infinity® Massage Chair can improve your posture and flexibility. Here’s how!

How Massage Chairs Improve Your Posture

Improve Spinal Alignment

Massage chairs help in improving spinal alignment by reducing the pressure on the vertebrae. By stretching out and realigning your spine, your back will no longer be stiff and scrunched over.

Relax Muscles Around the Spine

Tight muscles around the spine can lead to a stiff back, making it hard to bend, move, or even stand properly. Massage chairs assist in relaxing the muscles around the spine, which results in better posture.

Support Torso without Back Strain

Another thing that leads to poor posture is a lack of proper torso support. Doing an ab workout can improve torso strength, but if it’s already sore and stiff, you may only end up straining your back as you try to improve your core strength. Massage chairs support the torso and allow the body to sit upright without straining the back muscles.

Maintain a Natural S-Curve Posture

Our bodies’ natural posture actually has an S-curve; it’s not ramrod straight. Forcing your body to be perfectly straight is uncomfortable and doesn’t even really improve your posture that much. Massage chairs, on the other hand, encourage the body to maintain a natural S-curve, which is essential for good posture.

Reduce Tension and Discomfort in Shoulders, Neck, and Upper Back

Some of us slouch due to pain in our upper back, neck, and shoulders. Massage chairs can reduce tension in the shoulders, neck, and upper back, which can lead to better posture. They also reduce discomfort and pain associated with poor posture, which can improve overall health and well-being.

How Massage Chairs Improve Your Flexibility

Increase Range of Motion

When your muscles are tight, their range of motion is limited. Using a massage chair can help to loosen tight muscles, which in turn will increase mobility.

Reduce Joint Stiffness

Another thing that hinders flexibility is stiff joints. Regular use of a massage chair can reduce stiffness in the joints, allowing you to move more freely again.

Stretch and Lengthen Muscles

One of the most important ways to improve flexibility is to remember to stretch. Something as simple as a stretch can be intimidating to those with sore, tight muscles. Massage chairs can aid in the stretching and lengthening of muscles, promoting greater flexibility. It will also make stretching out in the chair easier. 

Target Pain Points

One way to improve flexibility is to target the areas that are sore and stiff. The targeted massage provided by an Infinity Massage Chair can help to alleviate muscle tension, allowing for greater flexibility.

Use Before and After Physical Activity

Feeling sore after an intense workout? Be sure to use a massage chair before and after physical activity to prevent injury and improve flexibility. Using it before will help your muscles warm up properly and after will aid in muscle relaxation and recovery.

Heat Therapy Improves Flexibility

Some massage chairs even include the option for heated seating. The heat therapy provided by some massage chairs can help to increase blood flow and improve flexibility.

Less Stress, More Flexibility

Along with mental and emotional health, stress can affect your physical health, as well. We often carry stress in our back, neck, and shoulders, which can also lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, sending us down a spiral of stiffness and less flexibility. By promoting relaxation and reducing stress, massage chairs can help to improve overall flexibility and mobility.
