Not very long ago, massage chairs for home use were virtually unheard of. Never mind that they’ve been in existence since mid 20th century. Lots of people just could not afford them. And so they became the preserve of a small percentage of the populace. If you required a therapeutic massage, you had to walk into a massage parlor or spa. There just wasn’t any other way around it. But times have changed and aren’t we all glad for the new tidings? Now, massage chairs are widely available and, most importantly, quite affordable too. The real benefit in investing in a massage chair is the long term service it gives you. It’s something that will serve for long – years – even when you use it every day.
Among the world’s finest massage chair manufacturers is Inada, the Japan-based trail-blazing brand. Buying an Inada massage chair comes with the assurance that you’re getting the finest quality you can hope for. Among their best seller massage chairs is the Inada Flex 3S. Made in a trendy curved design, the sleek Flex 3S looks right at home in the office and at home. The chair fully envelops the body so that every inch of your body, from head to toe, is gently held in its healing vibes. As soon as you sit on the chair, the body scanning technology, aptly named Shiatsu Point Locator, goes to work, mapping out the body, identifying the pressure points and memorizing your body size and type. It then adjusts the rollers so that they can deliver a massage that is fully customized for your body type. Likewise, the headrest positions itself for the most comfortable fit. The headrest is removable and you can further adjust it to your desired level of neck support.
The Inada Flex 3S is designed as a full body massage chair. It has special mechanisms and tools built to target different parts of the body, from the head to the neck, back, hips and legs. However, you can customize each massage session to focus on specific areas of the body. This can be done on the back, neck, shoulders, hands, hips, thighs and legs. The massage chair uses a combination of air cells and 3D rollers to create the desired impact. Inward motion and outward release is used to alleviate soreness and get rid of fatigue. Choreographed movements are used in the back and hamstrings to improve the range of motion in these areas. Adjustable posture-enhancing shoulder stabilizers are used to increase mobility and flexibility in the back. For your feet and hands, light, stimulating heat therapy is used to boost relaxation. All these mechanisms work in a coordinated way to deliver a mind-blowing experience every time.
An intuitive hand-held remote control puts you in charge of how the massage is delivered. Use it to adjust the speed or intensity of the massage. It’s also programmed with 11 preset massage sessions. Use these or opt for the manual mode which allows you to customize your own massage routine using more than 500 massage combinations.
