The wide range of applications of massages has long been known. From recovery to relaxation, from stress reduction to improved regeneration after a workout to pain-relieving treatments. Not surprisingly, massages are also frequently found in combination with various wellness offers. Currently still predominantly used by women, wellness massages are on the rise and we have therefore asked around how and where massage chairs can take their place.
Which functions are important and are there any differences between massage chairs for men and women?
Massages as a factor for vitality and a healthy body feeling
Similar to a relaxing wellness program, massages have an effect on body and mind on several levels. Especially after an intense day at work or even a work-out, one often feels drained. After the sport rather in a positive way, after the stressful office day often also simply limp and tired. In both cases, those affected need regeneration, which they regularly treat themselves to in the form of massages. The focus is often on a healthy and active lifestyle, physical fitness and mental relaxation.
The daily peak performances that women in particular also achieve in everyday life, the social balancing act between health, career, family and leisure time require a strong foundation of physical and mental well-being. The genders often differ in their definition of this well-being and also in how individual aspects of a massage affect it. Massage chairs are a proven tool in this regard, but can they also address needs that women often place a higher priority on in terms of regeneration, and what needs would those even be?
Why are wellness massages for women especially relaxing?
A classic, if you will, are heat therapies. Our clients prefer massage chairs that can handle this particular function. It is often used as an introduction to massage and is found to be particularly restorative. Especially in case of noticeable stress, an infrared treatment is particularly beneficial. It loosens the muscles, promotes the regeneration process and also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Depending on the previous stress, heat therapy can therefore provide the perfect start to a massage.
Foot reflexology massage after jogging
By means of wide-area roller massage, pain is relieved and blood circulation is promoted. Variety is a clear plus when it comes to choosing intensity and program. Especially after jogging, many of our customers swear by the stretching program.
Forearm massages after a rowing workout
A rowing workout may well be called a full-body workout, but it has a particularly intense effect on the arms. After such an activity, forearm massage using airbags is popular. It has a relieving effect and supports the lymph flow, with which anti-inflammatory effects can be achieved and a better supply of nutrients as well as a better removal of "waste products" is caused.
Relaxation after a hard day
It's not just sporting activity that can put a strain on us or even push us to our limits. The hustle and bustle of our fast-paced everyday lives can also do that relatively well these days. Simply letting go on a regular basis, allowing time for ourselves and switching off both physically and mentally is essential for our health and well-being.
From wellness oases, we know the interplay of silence, relaxing sounds, comfortable reclining options and, of course, massages. Modern massage chairs also offer a variety of innovative ways to bring this relaxation into your own four walls at the touch of a button.
Integrated audio systems allow you to tune in not only to your favorite music, but also to soothing or meditative sounds. Posture plays an equally important role in relaxation and can be achieved through functions such as zero-gravity position. This puts you in a horizontal position, where massages can develop their effects even better. A massage session can be ended in a deeply relaxed state in the rocking function.
Are massage chairs the same for women and men?
If we had to summarize the difference in terms of the requirements for a massage chair, our conclusion would be as follows:
Men generally prefer intensive treatment of problem areas such as the neck, shoulders and back or muscle areas that have been particularly stressed. Women, on the other hand, more often attach importance to a holistic feel-good program, which definitely also consists of tension-relieving units, but is gladly extended by the facet of mental relaxation.
Height and stature
Although there is no "one" wellness massage chair for women, there are definitely differences in the various models, which can be helpful as a decision criterion in the selection. Each model has recommendations in terms of height, weight and stature due to the technical conditions and position of the individual massage mechanisms. Shoulder width and height play a role when it comes to the perfect position of the massage rollers for neck and shoulder massages. If there's an old adage that applies here, it's "the proof of the pudding is in the eating." This is one reason why each of our consultations includes trying out numerous models. On the one hand, to identify personal preferences and, on the other, to find the right model for them.
Regarding the intensity of massages, women tend to prefer less intensive treatments. Here, too, different models offer a wide range, which should be tested extensively in advance.
With regular massages to balanceIn summary, we can state that massages definitely contribute to our well-being. Uniform, gentle and rhythmic stroking and kneading treatments let our thoughts wander and decelerate us. A massage chair that can offer this at the touch of a button can thus definitely be called a personal wellness oasis. Whether regeneration, relaxation or pain relief, both mentally and physically, a massage chair for women, if it is specifically selected to own the wishes and needs, can contribute to the holistic well-being in everyday life.
