This offering from Human Touch is quite popular, on doubt because of its price point as a good, name-brand massage chair. It is the modern day equivalent of the HT-125, HT-135, and HT-136 models, which were quite popular up to 4-5 years ago. My very first massage chair was an HT-125 and I used it in my clinic everyday to assist in the treatment of patients. It was delightfully durable, but I would periodically get complaints about its intensity. The rollers seemed to be too intense for some, the airbags in the calves was too intense for others.
Some ottomans are designed to have the foot and calf massaging mechanism all-in-one and completely attached as one solid unit, like the Human Touch Actouch HT-9500 massage chair and the Omega Aires, but others have the foot detached from the calf massager, thus facilitating the ability of a taller person to stretch out their legs by flattening out the foot portion of the ottoman, making it parallel to the massager for the calf. An example of this type of foot and calf massager would be the Panasonic 30007. The down side with this type of use of the foot massager is that the foot massager ends up massaging the sides of the ankles of the user.
Among the many health benefits attributed to regular massage sessions is that of endorphin release. Endorphins are a family of neuro-transmitters with properties similar to those of morphine in terms of relieving pain and in promoting a sense of well-being. During the massage process, these marvelous compounds are created and released into the body. It is reported that nearly 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related issues. These include headache, back aches, eye-strain, anxiety, depression, neck pain, anger and cardiovascular problems. The latter include heart disease and high blood pressure. Physical and emotional exhaustion are among the more common ailments, as well.
Research studies conducted in the United States, Europe, and Asia have documented that massage therapy has an impressive range of physical, mental, and emotional benefits including, but not limited to reducing the effects of stress, relaxing tense muscles, increasing blood circulation, decreasing chronic pain, strengthening the immune system, improving nerve functioning, benefitting sleep, and improving skin tone.
