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.
When ladies are pregnant, it helps the baby a lot if there is a calm swaying movement, and so a mother can definitely make use of a rocking chair to help promote this type of movement. The same is true when she's nursing babies. The slow movement really helps to calm infants and small children and so this is a great way to do this and be comfortable at the same time. The mother doesn't have to use her arms to make a cradle to swing her children this way. That can get very tiring. Using a rocking chair actually does help people get some exercise though. You burn about 150 calories an hour while if you were to sit in a regular chair you wouldn't be burning any at all. So it's time for you to start replacing your old boring chairs that don't rock.
A rocking chair is one of those things that has become a timeless piece of artwork that just outshines most other kinds of chairs. You don't see people fighting over which chair they get to sit in, unless of course the chair in question is a rocking chair. They are just so comfortable that everyone wants to be able to sit in one if it's available.
No one is sure whether the 'Wicker Rocker' as it became known, came before or after the wooden version but they became famous for their craftsmanship and creative designs and were very sought after. The same still stands today. Light, beautiful a real accent piece for any room, ultra comfortable and roomy, relaxing, and a joy for young and old. Wicker rocking chairs can be used on the porch, in the sun room, the family room, the bedroom, the baby's nursery and when it has done all that, a wash down and a can of spray paint and it's good to go for another quarter of a century.
The natural angle of this chair reduces the stress level on the back to a great extent. Listening to soothing music while moving in the chair can even make you forget the operation that you had recently. The post-operative rocking was found to be highly beneficial if it can be done at a slow but steady rate for at least 40 minutes regularly. The list goes on with new findings but one thing is sure, we can spend thousands of dollars in treating a number of diseases, or we can turn to this simple approach of rocking which in the end can save us a lot. Today, rocking chairs are not just for the elderly, but for anyone who needs a bit of welcome relaxation from a hectic life and who also wants health benefits as well.
