The Remarkable Benefits of Massage Chairs

As New Year’s Resolutions kick in, fitness will once again become a priority for many who will vow to get stronger, fitter and healthier in 2024. And while strength training, heaving lifting and cardiovascular exercise never go out of style, one important element of the fitness journey is taking center stage in 2024: The power of recovery. 


Johnson Health Tech and Matrix Fitness Canada is proud to bring the most advanced recovery chair, the Syncha MC J-6950, to the market  “We look at trends 2-5 years in advance, and develop our fitness equipment to fill the needs of our customers, whether they are huge gyms with thousands of members, or the five-star hotel looking to provide an exceptional experience for their guest,”  says Nasser Obeid, President of Johnson Health Tech / Matrix Fitness Canada. “The Synca is extraordinary, and has the power to revolutionize how we reap the benefits of recovery.” 


About Recovery

Stress, tension and fatigue are part of our daily lives. And while recovery and massage chairs have been part of the spa and wellness industries for a long time, the blending of health, fitness and wellness have led to increased demand for recovery tools and specialization. The Synca’s capabilities – with 250 individual motors that target multiple points, with reclining capabilities that place the body in a zero gravity position – provide significant benefits in only 10 minutes


And for athletes and those looking to improve flexibility and mobility gains in 2024, recovery is fundamental for accelerating muscle repair and growth. But the benefits of a recovery chair are extensive, and can significantly improve health.


Reduce blood pressure, reduce stress

In a ground-breaking study of cancer-care nurses, where they participated in massage chair sessions for six-months,significant reductions were noted in perceived stress, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and heart rate. These data indicate that providing a relaxing room with chair massage has favorable effects on nurses’ perceived stress, BP, and HR.


Johnson Health Tech recently donated a Synca MC J-6950 to SickKids, Canada’s leading pediatric hospital, to help nurses, doctors and front-line staff improve their health throughout their hectic days. The motors of the Synca mimic the hands of a masseuse, applying pressure and kneading techniques to relieve tension and stress, which helps soothe the body and mind. 


Reduce pain, improve flexibility and mobility

Did you know that roughly 20 percent of the population experiences chronic pain? One of the primary benefits of the Synca MC-J6950 is the ability to target specific areas – such as the back and neck, and also improve blood circulation from head to toe. Repeated use of the Synca can help relieve symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia. 


Athletes that use massage techniques and recovery tools immediately following an exercise session can accelerate muscle growth and recovery, leading to more mobility and reduced injuries. 


Improve Sleep 

Sleep is one of the most fundamental elements of our health, and is also a health issue facing Canadians. While occasional sleepless nights are common – with an estimated 40 percent of Canadians experiencing insomnia at any given time – about 10% of the population suffers from chronic sleep insomnia.


Regular use of massage chairs can help promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety and help individuals fall asleep more easily and achieve a deeper, more rested sleep. 


Boosted Immune System

Massage has been shown to stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a crucial role in the body’s immune response. Regular use of the Synca can aid in the circulation of lymphatic fluid, helping the body remove toxins and waste more efficiently. This can strengthen the immune system, making it better equipped to fight off illnesses and infections – which is particularly important during the cold and flu season.


The Synca MC J-6950 is a therapeutic tool that can improve physical and mental health, reduce stress, alleviate pain, improve sleep and provide huge benefits to your health and wellness space.
