Massage therapy is one of the best self-care practices to regularly include in your routine. To get a good full body massage even once every couple of months will relieve tension and stress, support muscle health, encourage good circulation and can help maintain good physical, mental and emotional health.
Even knowing all these benefits, it can be difficult to make time for massage appointments. For some reason, these self-care practices seem to be the first thing we lose time for the busier we get (and therefore the more we need them!). There are other times where you get home from a long day at work and the last thing you want to do is go somewhere else — you just want to unwind and relax into your favourite comfy chair.
This is where a good massage chair can benefit your life. Imagine the feeling of coming home exhausted and being able to melt into a full body massage chair with the click of a button, all from the comfort of your home!
If you are wondering if a massage chair is right for you — there are a few things to consider.
4 Things to Consider For Your Massage Chair
1. Type of Massage
There are different massage techniques from different parts of the world (shiatsu, Swedish, hot stone, etc.). Of course, nothing is going to replace an actual massage therapist, who will customize a treatment for you, you may have a preference for the type of massage you like best. If you are looking for a massage chair in Vancouver, it is good to “test drive” a few before making a decision.
Full body massage chairs occupy a huge price range from several hundred dollars to many thousands. It is a good idea to have a budget in mind. If the massage chair is going to replace your in-person treatments, you can think about how much money you will save annually and over the years and use that money for the upfront cost. Make sure you ask about the warranty and read some reviews online to see how long your investment should last.
You will see once you start shopping around that massage chairs can take up a lot of space. Think about where it will go into your home and take measurements with you when you go look at furniture stores. You don’t want to go through the hassle of trying to return something because it’s too big for your space.
4. Furniture Store
