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.
There are a couple of massage chair devices that you should stay away from. At the lowest end of the spectrum are the massage cushions that slip over an existing chair. Some simply vibrate, others have what they call a "shiatsu" massage, and both varieties may have heat. From a therapeutic viewpoint, these types of devices are worthless. There is one minor exception. Some that can work off the cigarette lighter or accessory outlet in a car can provide some benefits to circulation on long auto trips. One level above the slip over massage cushions are vibrating chairs. All they do is vibrate. These are also not particularly useful from a therapeutic view.
