How Massage Chairs Can Boost Your Immune System

In today’s environment, we seem to constantly hear or read news articles about healthy immune systems vs compromised immune systems. Most people think about lifelong disorders or those that are receiving intrusive medical treatment like chemotherapy.

But what the everyday person doesn’t realize is anyone can develop a suppressed immune system without having any major disorders. Over time, this can lead to an increased likelihood of catching whatever virus is going around, issues like chronic fatigue, and an overall decreased quality of life.

The 3 most common ways our immune system can become compromised is chronic stress, poor sleep quality, and poor hygiene. Enter: massage chairs!

Massages from massage chairs have been proven to reduce stress by increasing serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine, all of which also lead to a deeper, more restful sleep. That’s 2 of the 3 most common ways to boost that immune system!

Below are a few of our favorite, tried-and-true massage chair features for stress busting and deep relaxation:

1. Heated back rollers. Therapeutic heat has also been shown to boost your natural immunity, making this feature a doubly effective. If that sounds good to you, check out the OS-4D Pro Paragon massage chair, which has the most upgraded back heating system available. The roller itself heats up, acting like a hot stone massage. This heated back roller allows for a far greater surface heating area, allowing you to experience the luxury of hot stones warming the muscles from your neck to your hamstrings.

2. Reflexology.  Reflexology is a deeply relaxing, rejuvenating therapeutic massage practice. The Osaki OS-Aster massage chair has two rollers located on the bottom of the feet that are spinning reflexology massagers. The rollers provide a soothing kneading style application that stimulates the acupuncture points, bringing you into a state of total rest and relaxation.

3. Zero Gravity. If you want to put your body into the most comfortable and least stressful position, try out the zero gravity feature of the JPMedics Kumo. Zero Gravity is a-must feature in a massage chair. It has been proven to be the most efficient way to position your body for relaxation and longevity.

Participants in a massage group researched by Cedars-Sinai, experienced significant changes in one of the subtypes of white blood cells lymphocytes. This particular white blood cell plays a major role in defending the body from bacteria, viruses and disease.
