You may have heard of zero gravity massage chairs, but what exactly does zero gravity means and how can you benefit from it? The concept of zero gravity came from the NASA space program and it was used to handle the problems of massive compression forces felt by astronauts when they launch into space. Astronauts experienced fatigue during the launch process because of gravity's natural compression on the human body, in particular the human spine. After significant research, NASA perfected the "Neutral Body Posture" which is best for evenly distributing pressures on the human body. This position is good for the whole body and not just the spine, and it puts the body into an increased state of relaxation. This breakthrough in tackling gravitational forces has been used in many areas of wellness therapy.
The Neutral Body Posture is the optimal posture when you are trying to become fully relaxed. To achieve this, you must be in a reclined position elevating your feet above the heart and creating a torso-to-leg angle of roughly 128 degrees with a variation of +/- 7 degrees. This position is also known as the "Anti-Gravity" and "90/90" position.

Measurements of oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels were shown to be lower after a chair massage of 10 to 15 minutes in controlled studies. In today’s world where stress affects about 40% of the population, having a solution as simple as a zero gravity massage chair at home seems obvious but necessary.

Massage chairs benefit the immune system by helping boost lymphocytes, the white blood cells that help defend the body against diseases. They are responsible for your body’s immune response and when they your body is better able to resist things like common cold, fever or flu. According to the experts, a single massage is good enough to produce and measure significant quantifiable changes in the body’s endocrine and immune response.
Mobilize lymphatic circulation
The lymphatic system in your body is as important as the blood flow in your body. It is the drainage network that keeps your bodily fluids balanced and protects the body against infections. You can think of the lymphatic system as the body’s waste system since it collects the byproducts of the body’s waste. While blood has the heart to pump throughout the body, the lymphatic system does not have a similar “pump” to force its movement. Therefore, when you lead a more sedentary lifestyle, the lymphatic fluid tends to build up in the body causing inflammation, and massage can help get those fluids flowing.
