Before we take a look at the top 5  benefits of Zero Gravity Massage Chairs, what is the Zero Gravity position? NASA pioneered this position in order to relieve stress on the spine of Astronauts during take off. Massage chair companies have started to include this technology in their massage chairs in order to help people with back issues and to provide a better overall massage. In this brief list, I explain the benefits and give simple explanations as to why Massage Chair companies like Osaki, Sanyo, and Omega have quickly adopted these features into their massage chair products.


Five Benefits of Zero Gravity Massage Chairs

Benefit #1 – Eliminates pressure on the Spine

The Neutral Body Position takes all of the natural gravity pressures off of the spine and vertebrae. The forces will be sprad across the body. This is done by reclining the backrest and elevating the legs above the heart at roughly a 130-degree angle.

Benefit #2 – Increased Relaxation of the Neck and the Back

Once the spine and body has completely entered the Neutral Body Position and become relieved of pressure, the Neck, Back, and Lower-Back can become fully relaxed. This will also allow for a better and deeper massage.

Benefit #3 – Increase Lung Function

When the body enters into this extreme recline, the Lungs are able to fully expand from the decreased pressure on the diaphragm. The heavier breathing will help increase lung function over time and help to oxygenate the blood.

Benefit # 4- Increased Circulation

The Heart is able to work more efficiently because it is able to work with gravity pumping blood horizontally as opposed to vertically (essentially up from the legs). This increased circulation will help the oxygen get to where it needs to go quicker and more easily.

Benefit #5 – Enhanced Relaxation

The best benefit of all is the accumulation of these components working together to bring the entire mind and body into an enhanced state of relaxation.

The Best of Relaxation and Massage Combined

Since it has been scientifically proven that these benefits working together force the body into an unparalleled level of relaxation. It is no wonder that it has been so highly adopted by companies looking to enhance the massage therapy experience. Many users of massage chairs like the Osaki Os-4000, Osaki Os-3000, Omega Serenity, Omega Skyline, and the Sanyo HEC-8700 and HEC-7700 , have mentioned that the experience combines the best relaxation and massage techniques all in one.

It really is fascinating to see a relaxation benefit being applied in everyday life. Zero gravity chairs are great for relaxing whether it’s watching television or reading a book. Although you may fall asleep from enjoying the relaxation a little too much. Of course this is a good thing. Make sure to check out for the best deals and best customer service in the industry.
