Tips And Tricks When Using A Massaging Recliner Chair
What is a massaging recliner chair?
Massaging recliner chairs have seen a surge in popularity over the past few years and are renowned for their ability to maximise comfort while minimising back aches and pains. Users can set these chairs to any seating position and indulge in an innovative massage function that relieves tension from their joints. Whether you’re looking for health benefits or simply want the comfiest seat in the house, a massaging recliner chair is a great option for any modern living space.
Benefits of buying a massaging recliner
A massaging recliner chair can go a long way towards relieving common aches and pains. If you suffer from swelling around the feet and ankles, you can elevate your chair’s footrest to ease this issue. Perhaps you struggle with posture and find that traditional armchairs only seem to worsen your spinal alignment? A massaging recliner can be adjusted to any seating position to ensure optimum relaxation and meet your individual needs.
The thorough rolling massage feature has been designed to alleviate back pain and release tension in the joints. You don’t need to be suffering strains and aches to make the most of this feature, though. After all, who doesn’t enjoy relaxing in front of a brand-new box set of your favourite programme while getting a stress-eliminating massage?
Different types of massaging recliner chairs
You can opt for a single motor or dual motor massage recliner chair. Single motor models see the backrest and footrest moving together when you recline, while a double motor chair allows you to move the footrest independently from the back. Many massaging recliner chairs feature a heat function to fully soothe muscles and keep comfort levels at an all-time high.
Tips and tricks for looking after your massaging recliner chair
Massaging recliners bring with them a wealth of innovative features, so it’s no surprise that they often come with a high-end price tag, so buying this type of chair is a real investment. If you want to keep your model in tip-top condition for as long as possible, then it’s worth trying a couple of the following tricks:
Light clean – If you’ve opted for a leather model then invest in some gentle cleaning agents that won’t distress the upholstery. Synthetic fabrics and faux leather finishes can handle slightly harsher agents, but in general, your model will respond best to a gentle wipe down with softer diluted solutions made with a mild detergent.
Target specific areas – It’s a common myth that you should be deep cleaning every inch of your chair to keep things fresh. Pay special attention to the areas of your seat that frequently come in to contact with exposed skin. Your three main target areas should be arms, neck and head. Many models feature removable upholstery, so you can individually clean sections of your seat without too much hassle.
Protect against pets – Do you know who’ll love your massage recliner almost as much, if not more than you yourself? Your pets! If you’re the proud owner of a pooch or cat, be sure to leave your chair covered with material when unattended, to avoid any scratches to the surface or unwanted hairs. Also, pay attention to any pet hairs that might find themselves sneaking into the mechanical parts of your chair, it’s worth gently dusting these parts to avoid any obstruction or potential pet-induced malfunction!
Watch your model’s weight capacity – You may find multiple children/grandchildren wanting to climb on board with you when relaxing on your massager, but be careful not to overload your chair. Too much weight can cause the mechanics to strain and perform at less than their best.
Use frequently – You probably won’t need much convincing when it comes to frequent use, but it’s worth noting that long periods of inactivity can promote a slightly sluggish performance. If it has been a while since you used your model, you may want to oil the internal parts.
