The principle of a massage chair is to imitate artificial massage, but it uses mechanical rolling force and mechanical force to squeeze. When a person sits on a massage chair and enjoys the whole body of relaxation, it is as if someone is carrying their backs and rubbing their shoulders. For normal people, artificial massage can enhance the body’s natural disease resistance and achieve health effects.
However, the mechanical massage of a massage chair is different from the manual massage. Although the massage chair has several touch points, it cannot select acupoints, point acupoints, and perform actions similar to manual massage, but imitate the “kneading” and “pinching” actions of a person. Therefore, the massage chair can only eliminate fatigue, reduce discomfort, relax and have no healing effect, and its force is not easy to control. When the force is small, the effect is not great. When the force is large, it will cause muscle pain.
However, some people are not suitable for using massage chairs:
First, patients with cardiac hypertension and osteoporosis. Because massage can speed up the blood circulation of the human body, it is easy to cause heart disease and high blood pressure patients; while osteoporosis is due to calcium deficiency and other reasons, it is easy to cause bones to become brittle, the massage force is large, and it is particularly easy to cause fractures.
Second, patients with local skin damage, ulcers, bleeding, tuberculosis, and tumors.
The third is people who are hungry, full, drunk, or overtired.
