What is Zero Gravity?

What is Zero Gravity? - Wish Rock Relaxation

You may have noticed that many of our massage chairs include Zero Gravity Technology. Apart from sounding cool, it actually has a very healthful purpose.

ZERO GRAVITY:  Noun- the state or condition of lacking apparent gravitational pull: weightlessness.

The position was designed by NASA engineers to take the stress off astronauts’ bodies as they escape Earth’s gravitational pull during liftoff. This reclined position in which they sit (at a 90/90 degree angle with the knees and hip positioned at 90 degrees with the spine) distributes the stresses of takeoff across their bodies in a much safer way and removes all pressure from the spine.

What does this mean for us Earth dwellers? Sitting as the astronauts do has several benefits:

  • It allows for a deeper, more relaxing massage.
  • It promotes circulation in the legs and reduces swelling.  
  • It takes pressure away from your spine.
  • You will experience increased lung function when your body enters into a calm state while reclined.
  • You will feel increased relaxation of the neck and back.
  • Enhanced relaxation.  The combination of the above, along with feeling weightless (!) allows the entire body and mind to succumb to an enhanced state of relaxation.

The Zero Gravity technology is featured on most massage chairs that are currently for sale on Wish Rock Relaxation.  Here are some of our favorites:
