Sitting on a massage chair for more than 20 minutes will hurt you?
After a hard day’s work, it will be refreshing if you come to the appropriate kneading and massage.
Because of this, people who buy various massage chairs in the mall are in a constant stream.
Today, the types of massage chairs are much more than a few years ago, and the prices are different: the most expensive imported massage chairs have reached 1.
60,000 yuan, the low-cost domestic chair is about two or three thousand yuan.
Sitting on a massage chair, can you really achieve the effect of massage?
銆€銆€The reporter asked Ding Quanmao, deputy director of the Department of Massage, Guang’anmen Hospital of China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to answer the questions.
Ding Dafu believes that the principle of the massage chair is to use the mechanical rolling force and mechanical force to massage.
Artificial massage can dredge the meridians, make the blood circulation, and maintain the balance of the body’s yin and yang. Therefore, the muscles can be relaxed after massage, the joints are flexible, the spirit is refreshed, and fatigue is eliminated, which plays an important role in ensuring good health.
銆€銆€For normal people, artificial massage can enhance the body’s natural resistance to disease and achieve health benefits.
However, the mechanical massage of the massage chair is different from the artificial massage. Although there are several links, it is impossible to select acupuncture points, acupuncture points and perform similar artificial massage actions, just imitating the actions of people “squeaking” and “pinching”.
銆€銆€Therefore, it can only eliminate fatigue, eliminate fatigue, reduce fatigue, reduce relaxation, and will not have a therapeutic effect, and its strength is not easy to control, the force is small, the effect is not great, and the muscle can be painful when the strength is large.
銆€銆€In addition, some people are not suitable for massage chairs: high blood pressure, high blood pressure patients and osteoporosis patients.
Because massage causes the blood circulation speed of the human body to accelerate, it is easy to cause the onset of hypertension and hypertension patients; while osteoporosis is easy to cause bones to become brittle due to lack of calcium, etc., the massage power is large, and it is particularly prone to fracture.
The second is local skin damage, ulcers, bleeding and tuberculosis, tumor patients.
The third is to be hungry, full, full of alcohol or excessive fatigue.
銆€銆€Ding Dafu also pointed out other considerations for using the massage chair: First, to relax physically, in addition to the concentration of thoughts during massage, especially to be calm, not nervous.
銆€銆€Second, we must adjust the strength of the chair massage, because the force is too small to get the stimulating effect, too large and easy to produce fatigue, and damage the skin, the strength and frequency of massage should be from less to more, from light to heavy.
銆€銆€Third, we must master the time of massage, 20 minutes each time, preferably morning and evening, such as after getting up in the morning and before going to sleep.
In addition, Ding Dafu said that the most important thing to choose a massage chair is to choose according to the physical characteristics of the manufacturer and the product characteristics of the manufacturer. It varies from person to person.
