The first massage on a massage chair


Do you remember when you saw a massage chair for the first time? We’re pretty sure that you, just like us, were already wondering how it performs massage and what it feels like to be massaged that way. In most cases, however, our ideas don’t have a lot in common with reality, and the perception of the massage chair changes after the first massage. So what does our imagination tell us, and what is it really like? Read about it in the following article. 

Ideas of a massage on a massage chair

Various thoughts come to mind before the first massage in a massage chair. How does it work? Will it impress me? Will it tickle? :) Most often, however, the first thought concerns shaking or vibrations – this is how we imagine massage. We think that the chair gently vibrates, that during the massage there are vibrations, that the touch will not be noticeable. On the other hand, there are also opinions that the massage chair shakes :-) It turns out, however, that it can’t be farther from the truth, and these are just myths

After the first massage on a massage chair

Ideas such as those described above vanish when you test the massage chair yourself. First of all, at the heart of the massage chair are special arms that imitate the hands of a massage therapist, which are controlled by special software. Customers who have already experienced a massage in such a chair are usually surprised. Such confrontation of preconceived ideas with reality changes the perception of massage in the massage chair quite quickly. Not only are we not dealing with vibrations or shaking, but the intensity of the massage is really impressive. Most professional massage chairs offer a more intense massage than chairs set in shopping malls or even hotel masseurs. In modern models, the pressure force can be adjusted, in slightly older models, you need to use the position of the backrest. The more lying the position, the more the body adheres to the massager and the stronger the massage. It should be borne in mind that in certain models the force of the pressure can be adjusted, in others it is necessary to adjust the position of the backrest. The more horizontal the position, the more the body adheres to the massage unit and the stronger the massage. Typically, after the clients have left the chair we hear that they did not expect such a reliable and thorough massage, that they are impressed by its strength and precision. The faces light up with a smile and relaxation. Most people who have been sceptical about this type of equipment before, often recognize the need to have a massage chair after the first massage session. 

First massage sessions on a massage chair

In order to make massage a pleasant, relaxing experience, it is worth remembering about a few rules, especially during the first several sessions. Because our body is frequently not ready for this – the muscles are tense and tight. During a massage in a massage chair, the massaging arms and airbags apply force to the body. Back pain after a massage may occur when you start using the chair by selecting too high an intensity. Many models offer adjustments for both the strength of the arm massage and the airbags. If the chair does not have such a feature, as we wrote above, you can adjust the intensity of the massage by choosing a sitting position. It is also a good idea to use a pillow or blanket – placed under the neck or lower back to reduce the pressure of the massager. The first few massage sessions should also be shorter and less frequent – the muscles need to gradually get used to the massage. Pain after the first massages is a natural body reaction, similar to mild soreness after a workout, and usually disappears within a few days. We have received calls from customers saying that the massage hurts. However, the longer we talked, it turned out that they had several massage sessions on the first day. This raises the question: how often can I use the massage chair? Of course, nothing will happen if on the first day, wanting to enjoy the massage chair, you sit in it a bit longer, but be smart about it :)
