Comfortable massage chair

I don’t know about you, but I almost always come home at the end of the week thankful that I can rest up over the weekend. My body and muscles always ache from the daily grind, especially in the lower back and neck regions.

So, as of last week, I’ve decided to do something about it, and by that I mean get a massage chair for me to rest up on after work. Something that acts as both a piece of furniture in the lounge and something with therapeutic options at the same time.

I’ve been reading up on, and researching around and there seems to be a lot to take in when it comes to this. Keeping track of all the included features can prove difficult, but one things for sure, after looking up how much it would cost me to hire a masseuse, this is by far the cheaper option. Not to mention the convenience of having it at all times in your household, no need to commute.

leather-massage-chairOne website I stumbled across, which is called The Massage Throne, has massage chair reviews, buying guides and ratings designed to make the shopping and research process simpler and easily understandable. They have whittled down and filtered out the good models from the bad through looking at consumer feedback. This has saved me time, and I’m actually looking into getting a Human Touch, or Panasonic brand.

Whichever I go with, it will need to provide many massage rollers and airbags at various points. It should also be heated to help me cure muscle pain which is currently a huge problem for me. The ability for it to recline into a zero gravity position would be a bonus, but not a necessity.

So, with those things in mind, I think I now have a pretty good idea of what chair I need. They tend to be expensive, so I want to make sure I spend plenty of time looking into this before I decide anything.

What drove me to take an interest in massaging chairs all of a sudden? Well, my friend Susan has one in her room. And I actually had a sit down on one of them and spent about ten minutes on it. I only managed to use the rollers, but that alone was so relaxing. And from that moment on, I knew I had to get at least a basic model for myself. I hear it can help relieve a bit of stress too, which would certainly not go amiss in my case.

Shower head replacement

There is no worse feeling than being half way through your daily washing machine then having to switch from taking a shower to taking a bath thanks to a faulty shower head. Not quite sure what went wrong, but I suspect it’s a bit clogged up after continuous use over the last decade or so. Even after a bit of cleaning and maintenance I couldn’t get it working again, so I’ve decided to splash out on getting a new one.

And if i’m going shopping, I want to give myself the best chance of it not happening again, so I will be looking for something of a high standard that has great water coverage. I do like the look of those rainfall shower heads, they seem to cover the most area at least, i’m not too sure about functionality, but that’s something I have been looking into in my spare time.

One of the sites I came across in my research to finding a great shower head is Shower HQ. They offer reviews and ratings based on performance, price, and what customers are saying about individual products. It’s given me a push in the right direction, which is always appreciated.

The Thunderhead looks promising, as does one of the Delta models. Both seem to offer a great set of specs that will surely enhance the showering experience. But then again, there are a few others I haven’t looked at that’s putting me off making the final decision.

Whatever one I go with, the surface area of overall water coverage has to be high, so I will want something with a larger than average diameter, and potentially something with around 2.5 gallons per minute flow rate.

The other thing i’m finding difficult is finding a good finish for my current set up. Currently, my bathroom tiles are white with floral patterns along the top, and there is a lighter shade of blue above them keeping to a bright theme. I am confused as to whether to go for a shower head renowned for its durability, or something that fits the design brief.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much in the way for both from what I’ve seen in the current market. And whilst these products are reasonably inexpensive, I’d rather get it right first time to save me having to go through the trouble of replacing, and sending back the old ones.

Rant over, I’ll let you know, and hopefully provide pictures when I’ve chosen one. I may be some time. Any suggestions, send them to me 🙂
