When it comes to massages, I’m pretty sure we all know how enjoyable and healing they can be. Each and every one of the systems in our bodies is affected by them, either directly or indirectly. A nice massage can improve the blood circulation in your body, relax your tense and tired muscles, as well as soothe your troubled mind. It’s no wonder massage therapy has become such a popular practice. This, however, doesn’t mean that all people use the services of professional massage therapists. Nowadays, more and more individuals choose to harness the amazing health benefits of massage by using a massage chair. “Why?”, you may ask. Well, because of many great reasons.
First of all, a sophisticated massage chair costs around four or five thousand dollars, whereas one-hour massage usually costs 70-75 dollars. However, tips are expected as well, which means that you will probably have to pay 100 dollars per massage. Now, let’s assume that you’ll want to go on two one-hour-long massage sessions every month and let’s do the math. It turns out that you will have to spend 2,400 dollars a year on massage therapy. Having in mind that a high-quality massage chair costs five thousand dollars and lasts for a long period of time, you’ll realize that purchasing one is a smart investment. Plus, you can easily set the purchase to be in monthly payments and thus diminish the financial burden significantly.
Furthermore, using a massage chair is far more practical and convenient than going on massage appointments. You can sit back and relax in your massage chair any time of the day, whereas professional massage therapists aren’t always free and available, especially if their reputation is impeccable and their clients are practically countless.
Another reason so many people prefer massage chairs to the professional hands of massage therapists is the fact that by using these products they can control and adjust the pressure, as well as the depth of the massage. Yes, professionals know what they are doing, but it’s your body that’s being subjected to this wonderfully relaxing process, which means that you are the only one who can make sure it is as pleasant and effective as possible.
And last but not least – privacy. We are all aware of the fact that receiving a massage from a professional massage therapist means being undressed in front of a total stranger. Even if you do know the person who will touch and rub your body for 60 minutes, the whole experience can still be quite uncomfortable. That’s precisely why shy and introvert individuals choose to use a massage chair instead.
