Sitting in front of a computer all day isn’t great for my body. Add to it the tentions of work and you get a problematic combination.
The funny thing is, it creeps on you and you don’t realise it. I didn’t feel the tension that was building up.
And then I got my wife a HoMedic StatusMax 2.0 massage chair for her birthday. Not only does it fit on almost any chair, it has a heating mechanism and it’s also highly portable. It came in a big box nonetheless. Hiding that box until the special day was quite the challenge! Gladly, the surprise worked.
Months went by and my wife kept telling me how well it worked. I couldn’t be happier. And then the day came when she suggested I tried it.
I was a bit reluctant at first. I’m not a huge massage fan. And besides, I was all good, what did I need a massage chair for.
Eventually I had one of those days where your back comes back to haunt you for yesterday’s exercise. It was time for the chair.
Boy, was I in for a surprise. The chair broke me apart. I felt like every part of my back was dislocated and then pushed back into place. Muscles were warmed and loosened, shoulders were kneaded. When I got up from the chair, I could feel every fiber of a muscle in my back screaming for help.
This all sounds rather terrible, I know. But it was actually good pain. An hour later I felt like a new man. I never knew I needed that massage until I got it.
And now all I can say is, get one. You need it. Don’t break your back. Let the chair do it for you.
