How to fight chronic stress with the help of massage chair?


Nobody likes it, but probably only a few people realize how much it is needed in our lives. Stress, i. e. strong nervous tension, is a natural reaction of our body to difficult, often unexpected situations, which usually stimulates us to act. However, when we are exposed to stress for too long, it becomes chronic and begins to have a negative impact on our lives. Scientific research shows that this can be remedied, and the most important thing in the battle against stress is a dedicated time to relax, unwind… and a massage session. Read here about how sessions in a massage chair help in the fight against chronic stress. 


Long-term stress has a negative impact on the whole body and its overall condition. The symptoms include fatigue, insomnia, frequent infections, loss of appetite, headaches and backache. Not only does the state of health deteriorate, but also the general wellbeing. Mood swings, lack of motivation, poor quality of work or neglecting relations with loved ones are all symptoms of chronic stress

We are constantly exposed to stress these days. There are numerous reasons for it, among which there is a meeting with our boss, home renovation, relocation or financial problems. However, the underlying causes of chronic stress are usually more complex and related to various aspects of everyday life. They most often refer to work, conflicts in the workplace, the need to perform tasks under pressure of time, an overwhelming number of duties or a situation in which it seems impossible to balance work and personal life. Stress can also be caused by excessive pressure exerted on oneself or undertaking tasks that exceed our capabilities. 


It is recommended to start the fight against chronic stress by introducing a few important changes to your everyday life. Aside from keeping a healthy diet, getting a good night’s sleep and physical activity, it is essential to find balance between work and leisure, which can be achieved through massage in a massage chair. The impact of massage on chronic stress was studied by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Valencia. Scientific research has confirmed that the anti-stress program developed by the Spanish company Keyton reduces stress levels by 42%. In Chicago, Illinois, studies were conducted on a group of oncology nurses – one of the most stress-prone professional groups. A significant difference was found in the level of perceived stress before and after using a massage chair (43.2% stress reduction). A decrease in blood pressure was also noted, which is an important finding as this change is crucial in preventing hypertension and supporting overall health and well-being.


The anti-stress program in the Keyton H10 massage chair eliminates the effects of everyday stress completely. It stimulates and puts more and more pressure on the most strained points on the back and legs, relieving them of tension and bringing pleasant relief. The mere movement of the massage arms contributes to the general well-being, brings relaxation and relief, and gives the awareness that we are doing something for ourselves. Endorphins are also released during the massage, the mood improves and the energy is restored. 

In our offer, we have models from Bodyfriend brand, whose mission is to extend human life by 10 years and to shape healthy habits. Using Bodyfriend massage chairs directly affects the mental and physical well-being of their users. In line with these goals, the Davinci, Rovo, and Care models are equipped with special programs designed to soothe nerves and alleviate the effects of stress.

The Brain Massage mode combines a pleasant massage with binaural music and voice messages that support deep relaxation and stress release. It is also worth mentioning the programs based on breathing exercises that reduce tension and anxiety. The massage itself is rhythmic and performed at a slow pace. Depending on the selected program, the chairs utilize techniques of acupressure, gentle kneading, and muscle rubbing, and the air cushions sensitively envelop the entire body.

Anti-stress massage in a Keyton massage chair, Brain Massage mode in Bodyfriend brand models, or relaxing programs such as those in iRest chairs, are perfect after a stressful day at work. Remember, a single massage won’t bring noticeable effects, but regular use of the chair will reduce stress levels and improve well-being.
