The Benefits of a Recliner Sofa

The technology used in reclining chairs and sofas is thought to have been around since the late 1800s, with Napoleon III reportedly owning the very first reclining chair? Back then, recliners were motion chairs made of wood with a padded seat and weren’t terribly comfortable.

Since then, reclining technology has come a long way. Whether you’re looking for a super supportive armchair or a state-of-the-art reclining sofa, there is seat out there to suit every style and budget. But aside from the obvious comfort factor, what are the other benefits of a reclining sofa and chairs?

Firstly, reclining chairs are ideal for helping to relieve stress. This is because their adjustability means that you can easily move the seat so that your body can ease into relaxation. After all, sitting upright all day can take its toll, so when it comes to relaxing our bodies refer to sit back and feel supported.

This additional support also means that reclining chairs relieve stress on the back and shoulders. Whether your back pain is caused by sitting at a computer all day, lifting heavy items or symptoms such as pregnancy, reclining sofas can help to take the pressure off of the muscles while leaving the back supported.

There is nothing better after a long day of standing than to sit down and put your feet up. This is because when we are upright, gravity makes the circulatory system work hard to pump blood around the body. When we take time to sit down and put our feet up, our circulation improves as the circulatory system does not have to work as hard to get the blood moving properly.

Lastly, recliners can take the pressure off of aching joints caused by arthritis. By adjusting the joints and directing the muscles downward, recliners work to reduce the inflammation and pain associated with swollen, still joints.

There are many health benefits to this incredible technology, so if you are looking for a new armchair or sofa, consider adding a reclining option to your new purchase.
