Inada is more than just a name, it could be the answer to your sleepless nights.

You have been tossing and just can’t fall asleep. Possibly you’re finding it difficult to stay asleep because of the billion things that are swirling around in your head? You may be suffering from insomnia related to stress. Stress causes hyperarousal, which may be upsetting the harmonious balance between wakefulness and drifting off to lala land.

Lack of sleep is no laughing matter. 60 million Americans are up and tossing with you each week.  They may have the will, but no way to shut off the clutter that is on their next day ‘to do’ list.  Knowing you’re not alone in your sleepless state doesn’t help the situation – other than knowing you can stay up and chat with all the other sleepless humans in their zombie state of wanting sleep.  You could bust out the short-term relaxation of a cup of Camomile tea and take a deep breath of the best essential oils. But, there something else you can do to take that edge off and help your body relax.

Can a massage chair really promote better sleep?  

In a study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies(1), respondents who received regular massage reported improved sleep as well as reduction in pain and anxiety – which are both linked to insomnia.  Our experiences through a day settles as tension in our muscles. It could be anxiety, overworking, indigestion, an empty stomach, or even excessive intake of caffeine and sugar. This pent up stress can prevent falling asleep or restful sleep. Studies have shown that regular massage habits improve sleep patterns by relieving pain, anxiety and promoting a positive mood.

I don’t have time – to be sleepless.

Sleep plays a key role in your physical and emotional wellness, as restful sleep repairs your heart and blood vessels. Anyone can benefit from improved concentration, productivity and mood!  The good thing is, you can maintain regular massage treatments with your Sogno massage chair. Sleep isn’t like a bank, you can’t catch up and store it for later – so creating a pattern of relaxing yourself daily and getting better sleep every night is necessary.

Fibromyalgia is known for being a constant, chronic pain condition that can make it particularly challenging to function on a daily basis.  Sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, and fibro fog can often be debilitating conditions.   Massage can improve Fibromyalgia symptoms such as stiffness, discomfort and pain;  improving mental clarity, and may help with better sleep – especially with regular massage sessions.

When stressed, your body releases cortisol. Cortisol causes your spine muscles to become cramped and tense, eventually leading to pain.  A massage chair can provide some consistent relief for those muscle, in addition to stimulating endorphins that put you in a better mood.

Massage therapy has been shown to:

  • Improve mental clarity
  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Reduce and relieve headaches and migraines
  • Improve restful and restorative sleep
  • Reduce muscle tension

All of these outcomes improve common fibromyalgia symptoms, making massage a excellent therapy option. It can be difficult to get into a massage habit due to cost and convenience.  Having a massage chair makes it so much easier to enjoy daily massage and reap the benefits. Improve life with a boost in physical and mental health – something as simple as taking the time to sit in your own massage chair each day.

Inada Massage Chairs by Johnwebster - 1d ago

As we are currently in the midst of the holiday season, it is important to remember why the season is so special. It represents a time of the year to think about others, whether that is with a gift, a get-together, or just a holiday card, it is a season to let others know you care.

We recently had the opportunity to spread our own holiday cheer with the Dream Foundation. The Dream Foundation is the only national dream-granting organization for terminally-ill adults, fulfilling final Dreams that provide inspiration, comfort, and closure at the end of life. With the support of a nationwide network of volunteers, hospices, healthcare organizations, and committed donors, Dream Foundation has given life to over 27,000 final Dreams since 1994 and has never turned down a qualified request.

The team at Dream Foundation approached us with a request from Rafael who loved the Sogno and had always wanted to have one in his home. We were able to help make this dream come true and were happy to present a chair to Rafael.

The look on Rafael’s face says it all.

We are truly honored to make Rafael’s dream come true and would like to thank the Dream Foundation for reaching out and facilitating.

On InadaUSA.com we spend a lot of time talking about Shiatsu massage, but what exactly is it? Let’s break down the centuries-old technique.

The Theory Behind Shiatsu
Shiatsu massage originated in Japan, but employes some facets of traditional Chinese medicine. The focus of Shiatsu is to realign the body’s qi (chi). When the energy within the body is blocked or obstructed, a person begins to experience pain and discomfort. By focusing on the body’s pressure points, the qi can be put back into alignment, thus removing the pain.

The Technique
The word “shiatsu” translates to “finger pressure” in English, and that is exactly what this type of massage utilizes. By using fingers, palms, and elbows, the massage therapist applies pressure to the specific pressure points and works on relieving pain and restoring balance to the body. By moving across the surface of the body to the joints and limbs, the aim is to promote healing and remove any pain that the client is feeling. If you’ve ever received a Shiatsu massage from a therapist, then you know how beneficial it can be. Unlike Swedish massage, Shiatsu applies more pressure on the muscles, which can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but once the knots are worked out, you can end up feeling much better. The “kneading” sensation that Shiatsu provides has been integrated into our massage chairs.

The Benefits of Shiatsu
There have been many benefits from Shiatsu that have been observed over the years. Those who always feel tired or fatigued can experience rejuvenation after experiencing a Shiatsu massage. If someone is suffering from poor circulation, he or she can restore proper blood flow to their muscles and joints. If you’ve been injured while running or hiking, a full-body Shiatsu massage can do wonders for your recovery.

So there you go, a quick rundown of Shiatsu massage. The only thing you need to do now is go experience it in person!

Wondering how to maintain your chair for a long life of great massages? Here are a few simple steps to keeping your chair looking and operating properly.

  1. Make sure your chair is clear of dust and dirt. Use a soft towel to dust off all parts of your massage chair, including going around to the back of the chair as well.
  • This is also a good opportunity to double check that the chair is plugged into a high-quality surge protector. Make sure it the surge protector has a protection rating greater than 2,000 joules.
  • Use a vacuum with a soft end to gently suck the particles out of hard to reach areas. The very nature of the chair is to move (during your massage), because of the movement of the chair even small crumbs and dirt can excessively wear the fabric.
  • Keeping the fabric as flush as possible and not bunched up will also help prevent excessive wear. This might require opening some zippers or flipping some of the pads to the rear of your chair for you to inspect. If you have questions about these steps, please contact the service department for details.
  • If your chair has a buffer pad, double check to make sure the buffer pad is installed correctly. If it bunched up and not laying properly in its position, the chair may not operate as it should.
  • Taking all of these steps will ensure long happy use of your massage chair, and thus ensure a happy you!

    A Proper Reboot: Sometimes It’s All Your Massage Chair Needs

    We have all experienced a personal computer that starts acting funny. When this happens we have all been conditioned to cycle the power off and reboot. It turns out that all modern massage chairs have computer “brains” that sometimes suffer the same fate as your laptop or phone.

    And most times, just like your personal device, a quick and simple reboot is all your massage chair needs to operate normally again.

    So if your chair acts up (or if it freezes and does nothing at all) shut it down and unplug it for two minutes. Plug it back in, power up and see if your problem has cleared. According to our Chair Doctors, these simple steps correct the vast majority of errors.

    Even if you’re not having any issues, a periodic reboot is a good practice to proactively stay ahead of unanticipated electronic errors.

    Opting for a massage chair can be very advantageous for you. Apart from just relaxing you, they can also play a major role in treating several conditions as well as improve blood circulation, mental health, and physical well-being. While hiring a massage therapist or going to a spa for a spectacular massage session sounds like a fantastic way to achieve this, most people do not have the time, money or the inclination to get a massage every month, let alone every day. Hence, the option for the rest of us is to buy a massage chair to replace the human touch and give you a professional massage, which can be both enjoyable and therapeutic.

    Listed below are a few benefits of a massage chair to enable you to make an informed decision about buying one for your personal use.

    1. Relief from Stress
    The burden of work and fast-paced life has overwhelmed the lives of majority of people, and few can cope with the strain effectively. Consequently, people have become more and more prone to heart ailments, anxiety attacks, and chronic depression. Massage chairs use various techniques and features that help increase neurotransmitters known to fight mental and emotional stress, leaving you a much happier person. A massage session every night can leave you invigorated and revitalized and subsequently induce a sound sleep without the help of a slipping pill.

    2. Enhanced Blood Circulation
    A massage therapy session improves blood circulation from head to toe due to the increase in temperature caused on the surface of the skin. The kneading techniques, which are stronger than the stroking techniques stimulate the flow of blood physically as well. In both cases, better circulation ensures the removal of harmful toxins from your body. Experiments indicated that people who undertook massage chair therapies for an extended period of time had a major reduction in strain and anxiety, which is the key source of high blood pressure. Additionally, improved circulation reduces the strain that the heart has to face in order to ensure that blood reaches every part of the body, which results in a healthier heart as well.

    3. Relief of Pain and Aches
    Massage chairs aid in soothing common body aches, headaches, and chronic neck/back/shoulder pain. Studies indicate a decrease in cortisol levels and increase in serotonin by an average of 28% due to continual massage sessions. By increasing serotonin and lowering cortisol levels, the body is better able to manage pain.
    Studies also indicate that massage chairs either significantly reduced or eliminated some chronic pain. Massage chairs offer an inexpensive alternative to the costly physical therapies for an aging population that is tormented by chronic pain.
    For people suffering from pain for a long time, this is the most compelling of all massage chair benefits.

    4. Reduce Headaches/Migraines
    Despite the large number of people suffering from them, migraines are perhaps the least understood of medical issues today. However, there are a few known triggers such as exhaustion, hormonal changes, sudden changes in mood, irregular sleeping patterns etc. Massages are known to remedy almost all of these triggers, which can significantly help in reducing the chances of migraine occurring. When you take a massage session regularly, you will feel that your nerves and muscles are working properly and so, there is no more headache or migraine attack.

    5. Posture Correction
    People try to correct their posture by walking straight or by practicing yoga, often overlooked is the fact that a massage also helps in correcting posture. Massage will help you get the right posture, mobilize and loosen your stiff muscles and help to maintain balance.
    When you use a high-end massage chair, the backbone is forced to align itself in its natural position due to the shape of the chair. The motions of massage therapy also help to relax the muscles further, gradually undoing the built up damage. Eventually, over a period of time and therapy, massage can aid in loosening muscles and align the posture of the spine.

    6. Increase Flexibility
    Another positive side effect of regular massage chair use is increased flexibility. Massage chairs help combat decreased flexibility caused by a trigger point. A trigger point is a painful condition caused due to strenuous exercise and over-exertion that leads to a restricted range of motion and sore muscles.
    Research findings from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Ontario showed that massage decreases inflammation and even promotes the growth of new mitochondria, the body’s powerhouse on a cellular level. All these individual factors combine to create healthier tissue, which is strong and flexible as well.

    7. Boost Energy Levels
    After a long and tiring day at the office when you sit on the massage chair, it works on your tired and worn-out muscles, gets them stretched and rolled, relaxing the stiff portions and providing the much-needed revitalization your body needs. As a result, you feel rejuvenated and re-energized when you get out of the massage chair. It also improves your sleep cycle which helps the body rest and recover from everyday ordeals and makes it more energetic during waking hours.

    Besides improving the quality of sleep, a deep massage can increase your energy to a great extent due to the improved circulation of blood and the nutrients it carries to the muscles and tissues. Massage therapy also improves the body posture which allows you to breathe more freely. All these contribute towards providing you more energy than before.

    8. Reduce The Impact of Repetitive Motion Injuries
    Repetitive motion injuries are injuries that occur due to a long term impact of performing the same type of motion again and again. For example typing continuously over extended durations can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome which is caused due to the pinching of nerves in the wrist during the unnatural position required to be maintained while typing. Bus drivers who drive automatic door buses need to lift their arm to pull the lever that opens the doors several times in a day. They suffer from severe shoulder pain.

    Massaging these parts every day can go a long way in delaying the onset of such conditions, at least until you can take out the time to address them properly.

    9. Help Alleviate Side Effects Of Complex Treatments*
    Some diseases like cancer have treatments where the actual treatment can cause as many issues as the disease in itself, especially when the treatment is chemotherapy. Chemotherapy takes a huge toll on your body and causes nausea, pain, depression, stress, and fatigue to an already weak body and exhausted mind. Relief from these issues can be a blessing for patients. It has been found that cancer patients who undergo massage therapy get better sleep, improved overall health, and decreased pain.

    10. Relief For Pregnant Women*
    Pregnant women face a lot of stress-not just mentally, but also physically. It is a time of immense upheaval due to the load of volatile hormonal levels, carrying a lot more weight than one is used to. With regular massages, pregnant women can experience alleviation in the stress on their muscles, improvement in discomfort and posture due to excessive strain on the spine, reduction in myofascial pain, cramps and muscle spasms, increased circulation of blood and lymph and gained physical nurturing and emotional support.

    A healthy mother, after all, can deliver a healthy baby and this helps her to nurture herself and the baby in times of high stress.

    Conclusion:
    With people falling prey to several lifestyle diseases and being unable to take out time for their bodies, massage chairs are a wonderful way to relax after a hard day at work, and also enable the body to recover from various issues. A proactive investment in the form of a good massage chair can help to prevent and remedy several health issues as well as provide a better quality of life.
