The advantage of an S-Track massage chair, is that the Stretch program can be more effective than an L-Track's, because the backrest of an S-track is a separate component from the seat, giving the design a greater range of motion.
The Stretch program helps with spinal decompression, which relieves the pressure between the discs, alleviating back pain and other compression symptoms.
The advantage of an L-Track, is that the roller mechanism has a substantially longer reach, traveling under the seat and relaxing more of your muscles and connective tissues, which is advantageous for the treatment of Sciatica.
L-Tracks also have a Stretch program and they do accomplish the task, but the actual stretch may not extend as far, because the backrest and seat are a single component.
They both should have a waist twist/sway program, which also helps to relax the muscles and connective tissues in the lower back. The stretch and the waist twist both combined, helps to promote the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrients into the lower lumbar region, so for best results, drink plenty of water after your session.
6 - Floor Models
If you’re considering buying a floor model, consider where you’re buying it from. If you find one in a mall or a big box store, chances are that it’s been used a lot, and at times without proper supervision. The motors may have been subjected to hours of non-stop use without adequate cool down time. If you find one in a privately run store, chances are it’s been used much less than a chair found at a mall, and it’s use has been properly supervised.
7 - Choose your massage chair dealer wisely
As important as selecting the right massage chair, is choosing the right dealer.
