Zero gravity does not mean the chair hovers or floats in the air. It refers to the stress-free position astronauts sit in during takeoff. The chair reclines so that the legs are above heart level to spread the weight across the whole body and take pressure off the spine. It allows full contact of the back with the massage chair. Zero gravity enables you to completely relax mentally and physically.Health Benefits of Massage Chairs

Most chairs will feature a control panel and display screen with presets that enable you to choose a massage method. Some give you customizable settings to vary the massage details such as speed, intensity, width, and type of massage technique. Examples of techniques include: kneading, tapping, chopping and pressing (as a human practitioner would do.) Most massage chairs handle the neck, shoulders, back, arms, waist, hips, legs and feet. Depending on what's most important to you, assess the available chairs to choose your preferred combination. In addition, chairs have rollers and vibrating or pulsating sections. Some may have functions that replicate human thumbs. Generally all chairs have inbuilt heaters to improve blood circulation & relax muscles, however check for this when comparing chairs.

Some chairs have the ability to detect acupuncture points, and some even play music!Other Features to look for In a Massage Chair
