Relaxing before meditating is a necessity. Most meditations start with relaxing the mind before trying to meditate. While relaxation is only one piece of the puzzle, it is one of the most important.
The benefits of meditation and massage can be powerful - especially when you combine the two. Add zero gravity into your meditation practice- with or without massage- and decompress your spine while boosting your relaxation.
Meditation + Massage: 5 Powerful Benefits of Combining Meditation and Massage
1. Boost Your Heart Health
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a study that found meditating has significant heart benefits, including:
- 49% reduction in coronary artery disease risks
- 24% lower stroke risk
- 30% lower risk of diabetes
Research also suggests that massage can reduce the risk of stroke and support heart health.
2. Reduction in Anxiety
New York University (NYU) conducted an 8-week study on the benefits of meditation. The study found that during the eight-week assessment, participants enjoyed significant benefits, including:
- Decreased anxiety
- Decreased fatigue
- Reduction of behavioral anxiety
- Reduction in mood disturbance
The participants, all between the ages of 18 and 45, meditated for just 13 minutes a day. The true benefits of meditation were noticeable in the participants after only a couple of months.
The anxiety-reducing benefits of massage are well-documented and when combined, massage and meditation can be a powerful way to keep anxiety at bay.
3. Significant Reduction in Pain
In 2019, a meta-analysis was conducted on 60 clinical trials, which included a total of 6,404 participants. The study focused on pain reduction and the dosage of opioids by participants to relieve the pain.
The analysis found that meditation was able to:
- Decrease pain
- Reduce opioid dosage
Researchers concluded that meditation, along with other forms of mind-body therapy, were not only able to reduce pain and opioid cravings, but also lower the risk of misuse.
In addition to the pain-relieving benefits of mediation, there is also evidence that massage can help with pain. Together, meditation and massage can help give pain a one-two punch.
4. Higher Gratitude Levels and Lower Levels of Negative Emotions
A small, 8-week study conducted in the Netherlands at the University of Groningen determined that 15 minutes of meditation was the equivalent of taking a day of vacation. The analysis found that meditation was able to:
- Reduce exhaustion
- Improve life satisfaction
- Increase levels of positive emotions
- Increase levels of gratitude
- Decrease general irritability
The relaxing effects of a massage can help amplify these effects, helping you maintain that upbeat attitude for longer.5. Reduction in Cortisol Levels, Stress, and Anxiety
In 2016, a South Korean study was conducted over a span of eight weeks. The study included a school-based program that used a form of meditation called mind subtraction meditation. Elementary school students followed the program and researchers found a significant reduction in:
- Cortisol levels
- Social anxiety
Meditation, whether in a group or at home, can have long lasting benefits to a person’s health and well-being.
If you’re meditating at home, the Super Novo’s three-dimensional massage can relax the mind, alleviate stress, and help you move into your meditative state. Bluetooth connectivity and Premium Altec Lansing speakers allow you to listen to guided meditations while the Sound Soothe function immerses you in nature sounds. You can also use Virtual Therapist™ to customize your massage.
If you can’t find a guided meditation that you like, the Super Novo has its own built-in meditation and yoga programs for deep relaxation and therapeutic stretching. Dual lumbar heat kicks it up a notch to really put you in a state of bliss. The Perfect Chair® PC-LiVE™ is another great choice to help eliminate pressure on key points and relieve aching muscles by simply reclining into the zero gravity position. 3D EasePoint™ technology eliminates pressure points caused by prolonged sitting and Jade stones provide far-infrared heat that penetrate deep into the muscles to alleviate pain and inflammation while helping you transition into your meditation.
When you add in the benefits of meditation and massage, you’ll be on your path to less stress, tension, anxiety, and better health.

Catching every cold or flu that goes around is no fun, but if you have a weak immune system, it’s way more likely to happen to you. If you’re looking to improve your immune system and increase your body’s resiliency, try one or more of these eight strategies to get and stay healthy, from sleeping more to eating well.
Stress has been found to be one of the leading causes for when one’s immune system is not functioning properly. When your body is stressed out, the immune system’s ability to fight off antigens is reduced, thus making your body more susceptible to infections, infectious diseases and overall sicknesses. Luckily enough, you can prevent this by keeping a healthy state of mind. Take time out of your day to decompress and relax, especially if you are working from home. The anxieties and stresses of the current coronavirus pandemic have made working from home difficult, and people’s normal time for relaxation throughout the workday has been replaced with home-schooling children, conducting house chores and running errands. A great way to decompress at home is with a relaxing massage in a high-quality massage chair. By massaging and relaxing the muscles, your body’s stress levels will subside.
Yes, there is something that’s guaranteed to boost your immune system and, no, it’s not a supplement or a shake. Your body uses sleep to repair itself, making new proteins (aka the building blocks of the cell) while you snooze. Whether you’re fighting off an illness or injury or just trying not to get sick, sleep is your friend. You’re much better off skipping that expensive supplement and getting an extra hour of sleep instead. While everyone’s needs vary individually, most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night to fully function and keep their immune systems in top shape. If you have trouble sleeping, there are several different things you can try, such as taking melatonin, muffling loud sounds with ear plugs or white noise and blocking out light with blackout blinds or curtains.
Exercise builds your body and makes you stronger and less susceptible to illness and injury over the long run. For optimal benefits, you should aim for a mixture of cardiovascular and strength building activities. Generally healthy adults should strive for 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise spread out throughout the week, which equates to 30 minutes five days a week. There are many workouts that you can do at home or in your neighborhood with minimal equipment, such as running, walking, plyometrics and kickboxing. Experiment with some different types of workouts to see which ones you like best.
Eat a healthy diet.
Your gut and your immune system are very closely linked, and eating a healthy diet is an important component of maintaining a strong immune system. In general, you should eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Try to eat foods rich in fats and sugars only in moderation. Indulging occasionally is fine, but these foods shouldn’t make up the majority of your diet. Avoid any foods that you’re sensitive to, as they can result in inflammation and weaken your body (not to mention cause problems like stomach cramps and acid reflux).
Watch your stress levels.
Stress, especially chronic stress, wears down our bodies and makes us more susceptible to illness. If you’ve noticed yourself feeling tired or getting sick a lot for “no reason,” stress could be the culprit. Some of the other tips listed in this article, including regular exercise, are natural stress relievers. Many people also find yoga, meditation and mindfulness helpful in managing stress. You can also try deep breathing exercises, practicing aromatherapy (such as lighting a candle), spending time with your pet, listening to soothing music, and reducing your caffeine intake. Some Human Touch massage chairs also include a Sound Soothe feature, which allows you to get a full-body massage while relaxing to one of eight built-in nature tracks.
Practice good hygiene.
Good hygiene is incredibly important for protecting yourself from germs. You should wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap and water. Don’t forget to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers and under your nails. If hand washing isn’t available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. There are many key times to wash your hands, including before and after eating or preparing food; before touching your eyes, nose or mouth; after using the bathroom; after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing; and after touching garbage. See the CDC’s website for full guidelines on how and when to wash your hands.
Don’t forget your mental health.
Lots of advice for boosting your immune system focuses on your physical health, but it’s important not to neglect your mental health as well. How you feel mentally is very closely linked to how you feel physically, and being stressed, depressed or anxious often manifests in headaches, upset stomachs, insomnia and other physical complaints. Exercising will help improve your mental health, as will getting outside in nature, connecting with friends and pursuing new hobbies. If you struggle with conditions such as depression and anxiety, finding a therapist can be a big help, and some people also find medications useful as well.
While many people want to take a vitamin and be done with it, cultivating a healthy immune system is more of a lifestyle—but it’s so worth it. Follow these seven steps to improve your immune system and better your health.
With the COVID-19 crisis putting most countries on lockdown, more people are working from home than ever before. For many of us, setting up a home office has been a tricky process. Along with finding a designated place to work, you also have to consider the ergonomics of the space. The goal is to create a home office that’s comfortable to work in without causing back pain or strain.
Investing in an ergonomic office chair is a great place to start. The Human Touch Perfect Chair® is ideal for any home office setting. Our Perfect Chairs may not look like the conventional office chair, but they offer the comfort and ergonomic design needed to work safely and comfortably from home.
Experience the Benefits of Zero Gravity
In the zero gravity position, the legs are elevated above the heart while the shoulders and head are also slightly elevated. It may sound like a strange way to sit or sleep in, but the position was designed by NASA as a way to take pressure off the spine when astronauts are launched into space.
You may find it interesting to know that this is also the position your body naturally takes when in a zero gravity environment, such as floating in a pool of water.
Back Pain Relief
Many of us suffer from lower back pain because we sit at a desk all day or we perform repetitive motions that strain our backs.
The zero gravity position takes pressure off the spine, specifically the lower back. Once that pressure is removed, blood can flow freely to the back to alleviate pain and discomfort.
If you suffer from pinched nerves or muscle tension in your back, a zero gravity chair can also help decompress your spine to alleviate these problems.
Less Stress on the Heart
Along with taking pressure off the spine, zero gravity also takes pressure off the heart, allowing it to work more efficiently and improving circulation. In this position, your heart doesn’t have to work so hard to pump against the power of gravity, so blood can flow more freely.
Better Circulation, Recovery and Pain Relief
Improved circulation will help with recovery from injuries and even muscle growth. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your organs and muscles. Muscles that receive more blood get more nutrients and oxygen, helping them grow. Injuries also recover more quickly because they receive the oxygen and nutrients they need to heal.
Zero gravity is also an effective way to alleviate pain. Along with taking pressure off painful areas, improved circulation reduces or even eliminates pain.
In fact, a 2014 study from Portland Research Group highlighted the effectiveness of zero gravity and Human Touch’s Perfect Chairs on pain.
- * 41% of people taking pain medication before their chair purchase took less pain medication after purchasing a Perfect Chair.
- * 17% stopped taking pain medication entirely.
- * 74% of owners said they would recommend Perfect Chair to other people.
Working from home can be stressful, even if your home office is in your living room.
The zero gravity position helps take pressure off muscles, allowing them to relax and alleviating tension. When the body is in a total state of relaxation, you also enjoy a deeper, more restful sleep.
A Versatile Home Office Asset
Perfect Chairs are just as versatile as they are comfortable.
With our Laptop Desk accessory, you can instantly transform your chair into the perfect home office chair. Our PC-LiVE™ chair, part of our Perfect Chair collection, is designed to distribute your weight evenly across the entire seat to eliminate uncomfortable and painful pressure points. This makes it easier to comfortably work from your chair, even for extended periods of time.
With zero gravity, maximum adjustability and the finest craftsmanship, Perfect Chairs make it easy and comfortable to work from home.
Even after you return to our office, your Perfect Chair will be there to greet you after work and help you relax after a long day.
