Take Care of Your Parents with the Gift of Massage
Aging impacts everyone differently. Doctors agree that aging can cause fatigue, headaches, nerve pain, joint stiffness, chest pain, breathing difficulties, aches and pains. Taking care of your parents in old age with the best massage chair can help them live a happier, more fulfilling life that is just a little easier.
Would Massage Chairs Work for Your Parents?
“Well-being massage chairs,” as we like to call them, offer state-of-the-art massage techniques that can benefit anyone – even your parents. Even if your parents are in perfect health, they’ll love having one of these chairs.
The right chair offers:
- Better sleep quality
- Lower stress
- Ache and pain relief
- Joint pain relief
- So much more
If your parents complain about aches or pains, have a chronic illness or you notice them slowing down, the benefits of massage chairs will help them feel more like their younger selves again.
Reasons and Tips for Choosing Massage Chairs
The benefits of massage chairs are very similar to an in-person massage. Modern chairs have full-length options that will extend from the neck down to the tailbone. Advanced models also come with knee, calf and leg massage, too.
When choosing a massage chair, consider:
- Ease of use. How easy is it to use the chair? Does the chair have programs built into it that will help your parents reach their wellness goals? Ease of use will be very important when making your selection.
- Clearance: Massage chairs have a clearance requirement for going back into zero gravity. You'll need to ensure that when the chair is fully laid back, there’s enough clearance between the wall and the chair.
- Heat: The addition of heat is fantastic for anyone who has tight or sore muscles, muscle cramps and similar issues. Heat will loosen these tight muscles, may improve circulation and is one of the favorite features among users.
Additionally, you’ll need to choose a chair that offers the right height range for your parents, decent intensity settings and any additional perks, such as high-end sound quality.
The best massage chair for your parents may help with:
- Back pain
- Digestive disorders
- Nerve pain
Many physical benefits also exist, such as improving the body’s immune response, shortening recovery between workouts, decreasing joint inflammation and muscle stiffness and improving circulation.
There's also evidence that massage is a great mood elevator with the potential to lower stress and anxiety. If your parents are low energy and struggle to relax, a single session in the chair you gift them can completely change their lives.
Over time, since they can use the massage chair that you give them whenever they wish, they’ll find many of these benefits compound after each use. Whether they enjoy a daily session or one each week, the effects will be noticeable.
