Our health insurance doesn’t cover massages unless it’s included with physical therapy. Since I have Myasthenia Gravis physical therapy is pretty much a waste of time. I can’t strengthen muscles that are weak. And some (most) PT’s don’t get that fact.

I do try to keep as active as possible in my own ways. But with Fibromyalgia, Rhuematoid Arthritis and Sjogren’s Syndrome I’m living in pain constantly. I’m at the point in my life where that’s what I do, just live with it.

A massage though is often very refreshing especially when the therapist knows not to overdo it on me. My Mom has a massage chair and when I visit I’ll sit there for a while and fall asleep while it’s working on me.

A Human Touch HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair is one of the latest and greatest Massage Chairs available at This chair makes you feel like you’re weightless, like a astronaut because of the way it tilts your body. And it even has a memory foam cushion from NASA.

You can adjust the type of pressure, the headrest, the height of the footrest, the width of the calf and thigh massage points and other options too. There’s even an area of heat in the lower back.

The HT 7450 Chair is made of leather and available in black or dark chocolate. This type of massage chair and the other products from would make me a very happy and relaxed person.

  1. Hi

    I have various massage apparatus – but sometime you just need the
    human touch.

    Does your medical aid cover Physiotherapist? A friend of mind was
    really desperate and recommended she tried and it worked out for her.

  3. I go through incredidble pain every moment Im awake due to an injury that had badly crushed and damaged my neck and lower back and caused some brain and spinal cord damage. Steel plates and screwes only helped a minor amount. I’ve had 4 years of Doctors and special theropies now, but not much help. Recently I’ve been going to the showrooms around here and getting free massages from the Human Touch 7450 (amoung others, but the 7450 is my favoritr) one time per week acting as a customer and it’s massage helps enough that I am convinced it will help reverse the pattern of pain and missery. For those 15-20 minutes in the chair, I’m not a misserable busted up old man, Im alive and I even laugh once in a while about the chair and how great it feels. If you pay $100 per massage and you have 1 per week, in 40 weeks (less then a year) you have spent as much as you would have for the chair. If you have the chair for only 5 years, you have paid $16 dollars a week for one massage a week. or basically, $16 a week for all the massages you want per week. Get it, increase the massages, enjoy life at least once a day, and just maybe, start to feel better. It makes a huge difference in the blood flow, muscle movement, spinal flexing excersise, neck and upper back tightness. I’ll be getting one soon, there starting to catch on to my weekly rounds. I figure it just may save my life, because I too am living in unbearable pain and to me it isn’t worth it, so I’m making changes slowly to make it just a little better every few months, I understand how you feel. Good luck, keep living, get the chair, and work your way up to walking or a swimming pool membership. I’ve found FLOATING is a great way to also relieve pain while giving my body a different sensation (other then pain) to feel and help me with and of course excercise.
    Stay Alive, keep trying, and keep a journal of everything and see what helps and what hurts, then follow what helps right to the path of once again being able to participate in life. Take Care, Read things that make you laugh and start to change the pattern with a new massage chair.
