- Increase Blood Flow/Circulation
Your circulatory system includes the cardiovascular and lymphatic system. These two systems work hand in hand in order to detoxify your body. Heart pumps blood away through capillaries into adjacent tissue cells where waste and nutrients are exchanged. Fluids taken from your blood are then transported to the lymph nodes where waste are filtered in order to be returned to the blood stream.
If the circulatory system is not functioning properly, the heart has to work harder in order to pump blood which can cause a lot of health problems. A good massage helps stimulates the blood flow in order to enhance circulation.

Stress is not necessarily bad. It's something we usually experience when we face an adrenaline rush or a dangerous situation. It's basically our bodies self defense mechanism. The problem however lies when the "feeling" of stress doesn't go away. If not treated, this can lead to headaches, sleeping problems, increase blood pressure etc.
A massage chair is known to release or reduce any stress we experience from our environment. Choosing one of the best massage cushion that's right for you would be able to do this as well.
