Where did the Zero Gravity Position originate from?

Research was conducted by N.A.S.A scientists and doctors in an attempt to reduce spinal compression in astronauts. The spinal compression is caused by massive “G forces” acting on an astronaut’s body during a launch.

The end result of this research was the Zero Gravity Position. It is also known as the neutral position or the 90/90 position.

During a launch, astronauts recline in a chair with their feet raised higher than their hearts with an upper body -to-leg angle of 128 degrees plus or minus 7 degrees.

Decompression of the spine

In a normal seated or standing still position, the spine is in a compressed state.For instance people sitting behind a desk all day often experience lower back pain.This is due to gravity concentrating the person's weight to the lower back region.

The (reclined) zero-gravity position enables the body weight to be evenly spread over the chair. This takes the downward pressure (caused by gravity) off the spine allowing it to decompress.

With the spine and the muscles surrounding it in a more relaxed state manipulation is made easier. All of this adds up to a feeling of total relaxation. Perfect for somebody suffering from stress or back pain.

The Heart

Whilst relaxing in the zero-gravity position, blood flows to the heart are less restricted. By not having to fight against gravity the pressure on the heart is reduced. This makes it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body.

This helps to improve overall circulation to every part of your body. Improved circulation allows more nutrients and oxygen to be taken up by the body. Cell growth is promoted. This in turn, helps the healing process with any injuries you may have.You will also have healthier looking skin as a result of this.

The Lungs

By taking pressure of the spine, you increase the available space for the lungs. This allows the lungs to fully expand. The amount of oxygen available to the body increases substantially.

Increased oxygen levels have many potential benefits for your body that include an increase in energy levels.

It helps the nervous system function normally which can improve mental clarity.It aids in the removal of toxins from the body and generally strengthens the immune system.

Final Thoughts

Ok so do Zero Gravity massage chairs help? Yes they definitely do help the body in so many ways.  This article has only scratched the surface as far as the many health benefits are concerned.To get the maximum benefit from a massage chair, the zero gravity feature should be considered.
