    Many people throughout the United States suffer from Fibromyalgia. Based on a study conducted in 2004*, one in 50 Americans are estimated to suffer from Fibromyalgia. While the reason is still unclear on what cause Fibromyalgia there are a lot of studies to help people with the ailment. It's also known that Fibromyalgia primarily effects Women, and small amounts of Men and children also show signs of the ailment. Since there are many different treatments that can be performed we decided to focus on some of the natural remedies in the infographic below. Along with a Magnesium rich diet, excercise, and yoga, Myofascial Release which is a form of massage helps alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia. There are many types of massage styles out there but Myofascial Release focuses on the superficial and deeper levels of muscle connective tissue. Check out the Infographic below to learn more.

  • 5 Easy Steps to Reduce Stress

    Posted on July 18, 2014 by heather

    5 easy steps to stress relief Stress Relief

    Stress is a part of our daily lives and a small amount of stress is needed to motivate us and keep us focused on our goals. It's when stress takes over, weighs us down, and brings us to a complete stop...it's then that we need help. The key is to not let stress get into full swing by using simple daily methods to keep calm. Here are 5 easy steps to reducing stress that we can all use.

    Deep Breathing:
    Yoga and meditation are great ways to regulate stress by using the power of breath. It is easy to get wrapped up in your current affairs and forget the simple act of a few relaxing deep breaths. We recommend pushing away from your desk, closing your laptop, and sitting quietly while focusing your mind and energy on taking 20-30 deep breaths. Deep breathing centers your body, oxygenates your blood, and clears your mind.

    Listen to Music:
    Listening to calming music is a super simple way to head off stress. Now it may not be effective if you’re listening to hard rock, so we recommend some gentle nature music such as the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Playing music has a positive effect on the brain and body, can lower blood pressure, and reduce cortisol, a hormone linked to stress.

    Exercise:
    Taking even a quick few minutes to excise daily will help to eliminate stress. We’re all busy, so if you think you have no time, you don’t need to spend an hour at the gym. Take 10 minutes to take a brisk walk on the way into work or at lunch, or step away from your desk to stretch. We like to spend 15 minutes doing gentle yoga “Sun Salutations”: Standing with feet planted firmly, reach up as if trying to touch the sun. Close your eyes, reach down, touch your toes. Step back into a downward facing dog, then plank, then return to standing. Repeat 3 times. Getting your blood moving releases endorphin and improves your mood almost instantly.

    Eat Right:
    When you've got a lot of work to do and stress levels are high, it’s easy to reach for a bag of chips or to run to have “fast food”. We’re trying to be quick and efficient, but our meal choices will determine how well our brain works and regulates our stress levels. Instead of hitting the vending machine, try to plan ahead when you know you’ll have a busy day. Try packing some peanut butter and carrots to snack on and a salad with salmon on it for lunch. Quick proteins like peanut butter energize your body and fish high in Omega 3’s have been shown to reduce stress.

    Change Your Routine:
    Studies show that simply changing your routine and adding something relaxing to your schedule can change your mood and stress levels drastically. Maybe before bed, instead of watching TV, have a cup of herbal tea. Breathing in the steam and sipping it slowly will help you wind down for bed and help you have a sound night of sleep. Or you may want to try a warm bath or schedule a massage. Being mindful of how you’re feeling and making small changes can make a huge difference in your mental wellbeing.

    Keep in mind that this month, we’re giving away a free handheld massager that you can use when you’re feeling stressed! Find out how to enter here on Facebook.

    Have a stress free day!

    Shop All Infinity Massage Chairs

    The Infinity It-8500 massage chair is one of our top selling deep tissue massage chairs. It offers one of the best stretch features through its Extend Program, mainly because of its smooth quad-style roller that gives a very thorough and deep tissue massage. From what customers have been saying, which is true from our own experience, is that it also has one of the best neck massages available. The roller is able to reach the upper back and neck with ease because of it's 30 inch roller stroke, and can be focused int that area with the Partial and Spot functions. There is also a program called Relax on the chair which activates the airbags in the head pillow. These neck airbags offer a complete compression experience pushing into each side of the neck, working from side to side.

    In the video below, Matt demonstrates the use of the Extend Program and how it stretches the body. In short the massage chair uses a combination of the airbags, recline, and massage roller to stretch the back, chest, shoulders, hips, and thighs. Watch below to learn more.

  • How Massage Can Help Relieve Anxiety, Depression, and Stress - Massage News Around the Web

    Posted on July 14, 2014 by Customer Service Team

    Massage Therapy News from Around the Web

    American Massage Therapy Association                  AMTA

    As we continue our look at Massage News Around the Web, we recently came across a great write up about a the effects of Massage, and if it can really help in relieving Anxiety, Depression, and Stress. We all know that it feels great to get a massage, and many people are in a better mood, and feel less pain after a massage, but what is our body truly experiencing. In 2011 the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) looked at several studies to answer just that question. Below is a brief summary, and you can find the full write up by visiting the article "Massage Can Reduce Symptoms of Depression" on the AMTA Site.

    What they found was very impressive. First they looked at some of the symptoms that cause Depression, Anxiety, and Stress and found that many types of people who vary in Age and Gender were able to benefit.

    One of the main things to look at is the need for Human Comfort and touching to promote Serotonin, the bodies feel good chemical, and reduce Cortisol, the bodies stress chemical. They also noticed that when Cortisol decreases Serotonin also increases, essentially working hand in hand to relieved pain. The different studies also noticed that regular massage could be almost as powerful as receiving psychotherapy for the same issues. Below is a brief list of the positive effects that massage had in improving mood and reducing stress.
     
    Positive Effects For

    • People who suffer chronic pain
    • People with anxiety
    • People who suffer from depression

  • Panasonic EP-588e Urban Collection Chair - Massage Chairs From Then Till Now Series

    Posted on July 9, 2014 by Customer Service Team

    Emassagechair Top Seller of Panasonic Massage Chairs

    Panasonic EP-588e Panasonic EP-588e

    As we take a look back through our Massage Chairs From Then Till Now Series we see a lot of changes. In the beginning massage chairs were simple, with very limited functions, that focused purely on back massage. As the years progressed we see the technology become more advanced, and the chairs become more robotic. The addition of buttons, different massage methods, and electric power all enhanced the experience. Another trend we see is the blending of furniture trends with massage functions. It seems only natural since that a massage chair will offer therapy and also double as a good piece of furniture when not being used for massage.

     

    Panasonic being a constant innovator introduced their Urban Collection of massage chairs in the mid nineties. This line of chairs still exists today with some very specific product features. The Urban Collection acts as a great sitting chair with simplistic lines and comfortable upholstery. It also has simple to use functions that are based around comfortable and automated massage options. The Panasonic EP-588e pictured to the right is one of the first chairs released in the Urban Collection, which is noticeably a great lounging chair. Before Panasonic introduced airbags and leg massage most chairs had a leg rest ottoman which this chair also provides.

    Air Royal MC-133 Air Royal MC-133

     

    Other brands like Fujiiryoki and Inada also had similar designs on their chairs during this era. Fujiiryoki was already pioneering the use of airbags in their Air Massage Chair Royal MC-133 pictured to the right. This was the first chair of it's kind and was already leading the way in full body air massage. Fujiiryoki also designed their chair with the same lounger type of look to appeal to the furniture designs of the time.

     

     

    It's great to see how far massage technology has come and the brands that helped create such ground breaking designs. If shoppers want to learn more about all the different types of modern day chairs we suggest taking a look through our online massage chair store. Of course if you have any questions we cab be reached by phone at 888.360.9996, through support@emassagechair.com, or through Online Chat (top left).

  • Fujiiryoki EC-3800 Stretch Feature - Massage Chair Video

    Posted on July 4, 2014 by Customer Service Team

    Getting a traditional massage is a great way to refresh the mind and body, but having a massage chair that can do the work whenever you want is also a great alternative. Since massage therapy covers so many different styles and techniques its great to see how massage chairs help incorporate these different methods. Aside from the traditional massage movements or styles, like Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Tapping massage, and Kneading massage, just to name a few, there are other styles that also get incorporated during a therapy session, like reflexology and stretching. There are a lot of different stretching techniques during massage with the most well known being Thai Style stretch. Since massage chairs are becoming more advanced and tailored for people who want a true therapy experience, many brands have included feature, and many others are creating their own unique stretch programs. Here is a great video of one of the best therapy massage chairs, the Fujiiryoki Cyber-Relax EC-3800 performing its stretch technique.

     

     

    We really like the stretch feature and most chairs will have their own version with subtle differences. We're happy to help shoppers learn more and they can reach out to us by calling 888.360.9996, by emailing support@emassagechair.com, or by chatting with us through Online Chat (top left).

  • Everyone Deserves a Massage Month – 5 Reasons That You Deserve a Massage!

    Posted on July 2, 2014 by heather

    July Massager Giveaway Emassagechair.com July Massager Giveaway

    The team at Emassagechair.com have joined in to celebrate "Everybody Deserves a Massage Month" by giving away 5 Hand Held Massagers to our customers. When you like our page on Facebook, you’ll be automatically entered to win! As if you need us to prove that you deserve a massage, here are 5 reasons we think you need one.

    1. Ease Your Pain
    You work hard and your body feels it. About 50% of working Americans report that they live with back pain. If you’re suffering from nagging back pain, massage can soothe the ache. Those that experience massage for pain relief report that their comfort level improved faster and they regained function more rapidly that those treated using usual medical care for their chronic back pain.

    2. Relieve Your Daily Stress
    Is the pressure of everyday work/home life making you feel frazzled? Many Americans reported to the APA that they consistently experience stress at levels that they feel are unhealthy. If you are suffering from stress, one of the best ways to manage your stress levels is through massage. Massage is proven to lower blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen consumption, and salivary cortisol levels with a short 10-15 minute massage session. Having a massage heals on mental and physical levels for overall stress relief.

    3. Achieve Healthy Sleep
    Do you have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night? It is estimated that 50 to 70 million Americans experience sleep issues that affect their health. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC): "Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions—such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression—which threaten our nation’s health.” Massage promotes healthy sleep by regulating stress levels, alleviating pain, and increasing the flow of melatonin (the hormone that helps you sleep).  Say goodnight to insomnia and have a massage.

    4. Kick Depression and Anxiety
    If you’re one of the 40 million adults in the US experiencing anxiety or if you experience depression like nearly 10% of Americans do, you deserve a massage! For the same reasons that a massage is relaxing, it can also soothe anxiety and depression. Massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol, resulting in lifted spirits and often lower blood pressure. It can also boost the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which are involved in depression.

    5. Boost your Immune System
    Stress, depression, sleeplessness, and illness are all connected. Making time to care for your body and mind will help in preventing the perils of the common cold and many other ailments. Massage stimulates your lymphatic system which moves the toxins, viruses, and bacteria through the body to filter and eliminate it. In combination with the reduction of stress and increase in sleep also associated with massage therapy, you’ll stave off illness and spend more time happy and healthy.

    With the busy schedules that we all maintain it’s easy to overlook your health and forget the importance of a few minutes of relaxation. Make sure to take time for you, have a massage, enjoy a few moments of silence (without your smart phone or computer). Your body will thank you!

    Remember to like us on Facebook to enter to win a free hand held massager. Winners will be announced on Facebook on August 1st.

    Have a healthy day,

    Heather

  • What is Reflexology? Massage Video - Massage News Around the Web

    Posted on June 24, 2014 by Customer Service Team

    Massage Therapy News from Around the Web
    Massage therapy has many different styles and techniques that are applied during a session. These styles focus on different benefits, like helping the body maintain a healthy balance, and the healing of specific ailments. In this Massage News Around the Web we take a look at Reflexology. Reflexology is a style that is applied to small extremities like the feet, hands, and ears. Most people know of Reflexology as foot massage, but the same principles of stimulating specific nerves and organs through points on the feet, apply to the hands and ears. Originally this type of therapy was called Zone Therapy because of the connection with different parts of the body, or zones, and has since be renamed to Reflexology for the reflexes int he body. Here is a great introductory video of how Reflexology techniques are performed, and you can hear about the benefits the person experienced from getting Reflexology treatment.

     

     
    Video Courtesy of uppermichiganssource.com & Northern Body & Sole

    Reflexology is a term that is widely used in the massage chair industry, mainly to help people understand that a specific chair can offer a more targeted foot massage. In early models reflexology was applied with special nodes under the feet that would focus on acupressure points. Using the airbags and the nodes a person would experience a deep pressure applied to the soles of the feet. Since Foot Rollers have been introduced, the foot massage has become closer to a Reflexology treatment. Similar to the styles applied in the video, the foot rollers can knead the bottom of the foot, and touch on different areas under the foot.

    There are a lot of Reflexology Videos to watch, and you can see how massage chair foot rollers work by watching this Infinity IT-8500 Foot Roller Video. For shoppers who are interested in learning more about massage chairs with foot rollers, we suggest giving us a call at 888.360.9996, or emailing questions to support@emassagechair.com.
