Massage chair companies worldwide regularly come up with new technologies to make their products better and efficient. One of the most advanced and recent technologies that massage chair companies have adopted is 'Zero-Gravity' technology. Zero-Gravity is an advanced reclining feature that most modern massage chairs come equipped with. If you plan to purchase a massage chair for your home or office and want to know about this feature, you have come to the right place. In this article, we'll tell you everything about a zero-gravity massage chair, its benefits, and the best zero-gravity massage chairs that you can buy. Let's do it!
What's a zero-gravity massage chair?
Any regular massage chair that comes equipped with the 'zero-gravity' technology is called a zero-gravity massage chair. The zero-gravity technology is an advanced reclining feature that has been inspired by NASA. With this technology's help, the massage chair assumes a reclining position that mimics an astronaut's position when a rocket takes-off from the earth's surface. During a rocket's launch, the astronaut's body feels an immense and immediate spike in the gravitational pull. In order to survive this massive stress, the astronauts are positioned in such a way that their bodies can distribute the gravitational force evenly. It is a reclining position where their knees' level is positioned higher than their heart level. This position distributes an astronaut's body weight evenly across the chair. It is popularly known as zero-gravity position. Because of this, massage chairs that come with such a reclining feature are known as zero-gravity massage chairs. In a zero-gravity position of a massage chair, the user's legs are elevated to the level of his/her heart. This position has many health benefits, which we'll discuss in the next section.

What are the benefits of a zero-gravity massage chair?
In the zero-gravity position, a user's body weight is evenly distributed across the backrest of the massage chair. It allows the glute-muscles to become stress-free and tension-free as normally, the entire upper body's weight is carried out by these muscles. This position also compliments the moving massage rollers, which carry out the kneading and tapping functions in the back region. Since the entire bodyweight gets distributed across the user's back and spinal muscles, the massage rollers' task becomes even more effective. In such a position, the rollers can penetrate deeper into the user's back muscles and result in a much more effective massage session. It's a medically proven fact that a zero gravity massage chair helps with back pain.
In a zero-gravity position, the knees of a user are elevated over their heart's level. The functioning of the heart improves in this position, and the stress on the heart decreases. It helps in getting more oxygen in a user's blood. It improves the blood circulation in the legs. It also helps in reducing the swelling in the legs, if you have any. Raising your knees above your heart's level also helps deal with leg conditions such as varicose veins.
In a zero-gravity position, the user's spine relieves tension by decompressing. It brings your body to a neutral position where the back pain issues start getting resolved. Normally when we sit upright, the earth's gravity pulls us down and compresses our spines. In a zero-gravity reclined position, our spine decompresses, and our spinal discs become free to expand.
Heat therapy works best if you get it in a zero-gravity position. Just like massage therapy, heat therapy also becomes much more efficient when the bodyweight is up against the backrest. The heating pads are usually placed in the lower back region of a massage chair. The combination of heat and vertical pressure intensifies the healing process of your lower back muscles. According to many massage experts, the zero gravity position is the best position for a human to get back massage and heat therapy.
