A massage chair is essentially a chair specifically designed for therapeutic massages. The usual massage chair allows easy access to a patient’s back, neck, and shoulders, while traditional massage chairs use mechanical motors and electronic vibrators to give a complete massage to a person. This, however, can become cumbersome when you want to give your back a rub, or when you want to give someone a back massage that requires them to lay down and let you move slowly over their back.
The benefits of the reclining massage chair are obvious, but the disadvantages of this style of massage chair are less obvious. The biggest advantage is that it allows you to give people a great massage without worrying about where they are lying down or what they are trying to do. With traditional massage chairs, the masseuse must stand in front of the client, with no opportunity for him to see where he is laying. This means that the client may accidentally fall over or get the massage table tipped over if you forget to keep an eye on him.
For example, if you choose a reclining massage recliner that does not have an armrest, you might have to move your arms up to your neck when you wish to offer a back rub. But the arms on some recliners are adjustable, which makes it possible to set the armrest at a height that is just right for the massage session. Some recliners even have a footrest, which can make the process of reclining a chair much easier.
