What is a Zero Gravity Massage Chair?

There are various types of massage chairs, like 3D or 4D massage chairs, and when you are looking for one, you will most likely come across zero gravity massage chairs. But what is a zero gravity massage chair? Is it just another sales trick?

Even though the name states ‘zero gravity’, it won’t float off into space. This technology was designed by NASA for the astronauts on the mission to escape some of the Earth’s gravitational pressure on the body as it launches through the atmosphere of Earth.

A zero gravity massage chair is a recliner suspended in a way that it replicates the launch chairs for astronauts in order to obtain the perfect weight distribution optimizing blood circulation and reducing pressure throughout your body. The zero gravity position allows you to recline all the way back to the neutral body posture with no acting force on it. It raises your legs above your heart level and evenly distributes your body weight creating a sense of weightlessness by taking stress off your spine.

In comparison to the traditional massage chairs, the zero gravity massage chairs feature more luxury options from heating to smart wake-up programs even at the relatively lower price. Moreover, this type of chair has a higher variety of materials (including vegan options), colors (more than just traditional black) and styles (from simple to elaborate designs). Another nice addition is that they take up much less space and fit easily in most interiors.

 

How Does a Zero Gravity Massage Chair Work?

Before we look at how a zero gravity chair works, we should understand what the zero gravity position is.

The zero gravity position in the massage chair means:

  • Your knees are bent at 120° angle (hips at equal angles from torso and thighs) putting your body in the “zero stress zone”
  • Elevated legs to about chest level reduce stress on the heart
  • The upper body is elevated with the heart and stomach being slightly below the head and knees

So, how does a massage chair work to achieve this position? Explaining further. 

The massage chairs achieve the zero gravity position in two steps:

  1. The back of the massage chair reclines to level your back and thighs
  2. The leg rest elevates to raise your legs above your heart
 

Benefits of Zero Gravity Massage Chair for Your Physical & Mental Health

The Zero Gravity Massage Chairs are more than just for relaxing, they also have enhanced health benefits for people of all ages. Getting a massage with the zero gravity position has proven health benefits from treating muscle pain to reducing stress and anxiety. 

A regular use of a zero gravity massage chair can help:

  • Improving Blood Circulation. The elevated position helps the heart to pump blood easier and as a result the whole body is functioning better.
  • Reducing Back Pain. The body weight is evenly distributed and has much less pressure and stress on your vertebrae.
  • Reducing Muscle Pain and Joint Swelling. The blood flow improves significantly muscle and joint pain from conditions such as arthritis.
  • Relieving Spinal Cord Compression. Taking the weight off of your spine helps with pain or stiffness in the neck, numbness in the legs, hands, and arms, and other symptoms.

Eliminating the physical pain helps to improve your mental health and the overall quality of life.
