What’s It Like In Zero G?

Massage chairs have become more and more advanced, and now they offer a plethora of features that improve your experience and increases the overall health benefits. One of these incredible features is Zero Gravity.

Zero Gravity is extremely popular and people everywhere are preaching about it. So, what is Zero Gravity and what are its benefits? Below you’ll learn why a Zero Gravity Massage Chair provides an even more impressive massage than a traditional chair.

What is Zero Gravity?

The Zero Gravity position in massage chairs was inspired by NASA because it imitates the position astronauts assume upon launching into space. This position distributes weight evenly across the body which works perfectly for an astronaut and can work wonder for you as well.

How Does It Work?

When you choose Zero Gravity mode, the massage chair eases you into a reclined position, moving your thighs in line with your back to maximize comfort and minimize pressure.

There are also chairs with Two-Stage Zero Gravity. The second stage angles the user further back, moving the legs above heart level. This position can increase blood flow which can, in turn, help the heart and body.

What are the Benefits?

So much goes into the construction of a massage chair and each feature is designed to create the best possible experience for every person who sits down in one. Zero Gravity positioning, in particular, offers several benefits including:

  • Reduced back pain- We put pressure and stress on our spines all day. Zero G takes the weight off your spine for less discomfort.
  • Increased circulation- While in Zero G, your feet are level with your heart, increasing blood flow. This can help your heart, muscles, and arteries, helping us feel healthier and even look healthier.
  • Reduced swelling- When your blood is flowing better, your body can reduce swelling faster.
  • Assist with breathing- Lying flat can make breathing for difficult for some people. Zero G props the body up and helps open airways. It can also help those that suffer from asthma or sleep apnea.
  • Improved comfort and relaxation- When you combine all the benefits above, you get improved relaxation and a boost to overall wellness.
