A lot of information has been written about children and massage chairs but available studies also indicate that children too need massage. We want to take a closer look at the reasons regarding children use for these chairs. One common thing that comes into light is that even children undergo a lot of stresses that if not handled early might present badly in later years. Just to address a few things. The chairs interestingly are built with the weight and height of users in mind. This makes it a little impossible for children to use. Children love spending time in these chairs but considering the built in weight and height features, their sitting on a chair might not make an impact.
The chairs even though provide relieve have been known to be quite dangerous. The chairs are known to use electricity and anything that uses electricity is not good for a child or whatever age. Children are quite curious and on many occasions would want to simply touch anything within their reach thereby putting their life in danger while using the chairs in question. Children left unattended have been known to pull plugs thereby either being electrocuted or suffering unnecessarily. It is therefore important that in case a child has to use a chair, a doctor’s permission be used and ensures the same is supervised.
Another great danger why children and pets are not allowed to use the chairs is because when children are relaxed they tend to fall asleep. Another group of people who should not use massage chairs without consulting their doctor’s include the elderly, epileptic people because they tend to suffer from seizures when least expected and people with devices like pacemakers just to name a few. This is because the nature of the pacemaker can interfere with the electric component and cause imminent dangers which might have been avoided had care and precaution be taken accordingly.
There are other dangers that can happen when least expected. The chairs have been known to collapse and if used by the above group of people they might not be able to help themselves. There are many other reasons why if necessary and with supervision, the use of the chair should not be prolonged. And just in case that happens, it would be proper to have medical personnel nearby to help in case there is need. If a massage is needed, a massage therapist can become handy and take charge as is required.
Other important groups of people who are better of with a massage therapist and not using massage chairs are pregnant women, people with clotting issues and those who are known to bruise easily. They should at no given time use the chairs unless advised otherwise by their medical personnel. The list is endless but adding a few more will definitely do no harm. People who have undergone an operation recently should never use a chair on their own unless they are fully healed. If you have a wound or sore please keep away from using the chair.
The list is quite long and continues to grow. It is important to know the dangers that the chairs present and the people who because of their health conditions or limitation should not use the chairs at all. The chairs come with great benefits that anything that has advantages also presents disadvantages. Nothing can be 100% however good it is. It is therefore of great importance that at any given time, a doctor’s permission is sought before using the chair. This might seem a little restrictive but in essence it is for your own good.
Lastly, it is important that proper research is done on who should and who should not use massage chairs and why. A number of unsuspecting people have because of ignorance been victims to a chair that should have been beneficial to them. If you care to check in many hospitals or homes the chairs are either in bedrooms or in rooms that are locked and well protected. If for one reason a person is hurt because of lack of proper information, then legal implications might be too heavy for them to handle. It is better to take charge when there is still time to do so.
