How Leg Massagers Work?Legs are the foundation of our bodies and must be cared for in the right way. There is that nothing works as great as just the right leg massage when it comes to relaxing and revitalizing your body and senses from the bottom up. Compared to the old times one can get a good massage done by hand but now there are several different foot massagers available online that are designed to do this at the switch of a button. Below are a few different types of leg massagers and how they function.
How does an Air Compression Leg Massager work?
Air compression leg massager is very relaxing to use and most of the health benefits that it provides come from the fact that it benefits the circulation of blood throughout the legs. This type of a massager contains powerful air compressor which with the help of rubber tubes inflates and deflates around the leg and the calf areas with air sleeves that are provided. It uses pressure on the lower limbs to boost blood circulation and have the lymph flowing throughout the body which leads to consistent blood flow providing the user with a lot of relaxation in the muscles. This is particularly useful for people who suffer from mobility issues or recovering from other medical conditions. Although home versions are now available, leg compression sleeves are included in physical therapy sessions. A hose is usually connected to the cuffs that are connected to the machine which uses air compression to press and massage the legs, calves, and thighs (or whichever body part that it is attached to) to stimulate the flow of blood,drains fluid, and also eases fatigue from the lower areas.
How does a Vibration Leg Massager?When the vibrations are transmitted to the body, they cause your muscles to contract and relax. These type of massagers use vibration as a means of alleviating muscular strains and pains, as well as promote relaxation. Once the skin is in contact with the machine, the direction and intensity of vibrations tend to determine how well the vibration massage works. While some machines produce only vertical vibrations others produce vibrations that go up and down, front and back, and sideways. Upward and downward motion vibrations are believed to be really effective for producing rapid muscle contractions.
How does an Electric Leg Massager work?
Many electronic massagers are powered by rapidly rotating rollers and it’s main focus is on addressing the common pain points on the bottom of the feet, and sometimes the top of feet and the ankles. These massagers come in a range of styles where in some allow the users put their feet on, while in other cases one can put the feet into, or legs into, and the newer models are smaller ones can be handheld. Modern electric foot and calf massagers are built to deliver a soothing massage. While electric or battery-operated foot massagers were once considered a luxury item, happy to say that is no longer the case. Electric leg massagers use electricity to create healing sensations and aids in reducing swelling and helps the user in overcoming fatigue within minutes. All it needs is a plug point socket and once it is ready, with the push of a button one can enjoy the vibration therapy>.
How does a Heated Leg Massager work?
A heated massager helps relieve the restless legs, cramps, Lymphedema, varicose veins, leg swelling, reduces pain and soreness. These type of leg massagers have low and high heating function where in the heating function helps relieve pain, fatigue and also promotes circulation. Heat has long been used to ease muscle tension and pain. It helps increase blood flow to the affected area. It may also reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility and range of motion. A heated leg massager does just the same, by exposing the aching areas to heat they provide the much desired sensation of comfort.
How does a Massage Gun work?A massage gun is like a “gun” designed to help in relaxing muscle tightness and improving blood flow. Massage guns offer a percussive or vibration therapy and these specific type of massagers give swift bursts of pressure into the body’s muscle tissue (which creates a rippling effect of massage guns) as the head moves back and forth (to and fro motion). It may look like a power drill but it can work wonders. Massage guns can target a specific area and one can use it at the comfort of their homes. All one has to do now is to turn the machine on, place an inch closer to the affected area and allow it to do its job of restoring health to the user’s body. The result is achieved through the to and fro pulsations and this is possible by sending the right amount of frequencies of nerve impulses to get rid of the pain.
How does a Infrared Leg Massager work?In simple terms, Infrared massagers stimulate the circulation of blood underneath the layer of the skin and the fat deposits are destroyed as it takes it into the elimination process. When infrared heat goes thru the skin it increases the temperature and dilates the blood vessels so that there will be improved blood circulation. It is a method used to treat acute or chronic pain in an innovative way. Infrared light helps the cells in regenerating or re-growing or repairing themselves. Infrared light also improves the circulation of oxygen-rich blood in the body, thus promoting quicker healing of deep tissues and relieving pain. It has an ability of penetrating the layers of the skin which gives a depth to the effect of the massager and it is similar to the heat that people feel from exposure to the sun. Usually it is exposed to 2 to 7 centimetres deep in the skin where it reaches the nerves and the muscles.
How does a Shiatsu Leg massager work?The Shiatsu massager helps people enjoy small moments of relaxation daily. This is a foot massager with heat. One needs to choose a preferable heat setting that is comfortable for the feet which are generally in between 2 levels (113℉/104℉), what it does is that it reduces exhaustion and helps get rid of internal muscle knots. It is possible for the user to adjust the depth of compression among 3 intensity levels as per requirement which could be a full-coverage foot massage up to ankles.
The included massage functions are rolling massage(this is a technique to help stretch and loosen muscles by applying proper pressure), air compression (in this the airbags are inflated and deflated in a rhythm to apply compression that stimulates the reflex points and it has 3 intensity levels) and heating function (comforting amount of heat is generated in order to help the user unwind) on this electric foot massager and they have the ability to be controlled independently for more flexible massage combinations as per the user’s convenience. This particular type of foot massager is designed ergonomically to ensure that the feet are settled in comfortably and based on reflexology, the massager machine treats the feet with an intense deep rolling massage which is an imitation of the old school hand/finger pressing movements that one could get from a professional masseuse and it helps in relieving stiff muscles as well as restores flexibility. Ultimately these are effective in stimulating the key pressure points that help maintain the body balance for a more natural state of well being.
