Jodie Gilmore. Rocking Chair. February 19th , 2018.
Do you remember that special day when you received your very own childs rocking chair or rocking horse as a young kid? For me it was the classic rocking horse on my 3rd birthday. Oh what a wonderful birthday! I was suddenly the mighty cowboy riding on my trusted horse (through the dry and hot desert) fighting Indians as I went. It is amazing how ingrained in my memory is this little horse on a frame with four springs. Then as I grew a little older, I remember getting a real childrens chair that had my name on it and was painted camouflage to match my GI Joe decorated room. Kids rocking chairs are a very memorable piece of furniture because they are a great toy, they can fit in with the bedroom décor, and can bring hours of quality time with a loved one.
Most of our bodies' aches and pains come from stress and anxiety, and rocking is the best source of relaxation for your stressed and tense body. Studies have revealed that chronic diseases like arthritis can be minimized by rocking, as it helps reduce the pain and inflammation. The motion of the chair has a harmonic movement to your bones that keeps joints working and limber. If you have a recent awful back pain or even if you have been suffering for a prolonged time, a rocking chair can give you great support. It reduces the stress on the back by taking the pressure off your spine.
Today's rocking chairs may also come with an ottoman or a foot stool that rocks or sways along with the rocking chair or glider. This is a relatively new addition to the rocking chair, which contributes to an even more relaxing effect. Padded or cushioned ottomans are the most popular, which allows you to rest your tired and aching feet on a soft surface. Because the swinging ottoman provides an increased comfort, it works perfect for the elderly and pregnant women.
The two persons who benefit from the baby rocking chair are the mother as well as the child. There are also two kinds of rocking chairs - one is meant for the mother to rock baby on her lap and the other for the older child to play the part of the parent and rhythmically rock. As the world spins on its orbit, as the waves rock to and fro there is a deep urge in man to rock and roll for peace and calm. The rocking chair represents the most endearing phase of life - our childhood.
The modern version of the rocking chair is called a contemporary rocking chair. Unlike the other types of rocking chairs, a contemporary rocking chair doesn't necessarily present a woody appearance. The said type of rocking chair is available in a wide array of bold colors like red and yellow. The shapes and sizes of contemporary rocking chairs are very different from the conventional types too. Makers of contemporary types of rocking chair are more aggressive when it comes to backrest shapes, rocker forms, leg sizes, and seat materials. Some models of contemporary rocking chair are odd-looking and very geometrical. Despite its unique appearance, the contemporary types of rocking chair still gives the same comfort and relaxation provided by other rocking chair types.
