Massage your way to better health!

We all work long hours and what better way to end a hard day’s work than with a relaxing massage. A good massage can do wonders for relieving tension and back pain, but a therapeutic massage is not always conveniently available. While it is still best to get a massage from a massage therapist, an electronic substitute is now available – the massage chair! Best of all, you can get your massage anytime you need it.    

We spotted one in Gintell, #04-29, and thanks to a team-mate, she gladly consented to being our ‘guinea pig’ for the day, to test out Gintell’s massage chair and bed! 🙂  

Being petite in size, we were wondering if the chair was too big for her. But fret not as we were told that the chair has an Intelligent Pressure System with auto-sensing functions. It will measure her body structure and weight so as to give her a massage of the right pressure, suited just for her. Massages which are personalised to individuals – we likey! 

Kase getting all ready for the goes!

The chair uses 6 massage techniques – kneading, knocking, shiatsu, tapping, kneading & tapping and back stretching to give a full massage of 15 minutes.

While enjoying the full massage, she especially liked the X Twist function, which is a combination of exercise and massage. This program uses airbags inflated on the opposite sides along the waist to gently twist and stretch your back muscles.

She described the massage as very similar to that of a Thai massage where it really stretched the back. Look at how she was being bent over and this routine was repeated 4 times! A really good massage for the back!

She also liked how her back was slowly heated up during the massage. The heat function is definitely good for improving blood circulation!

We also noticed that besides the usual areas for massage – head, neck, back, shoulder, hips, arms, the chair also massages the palms, which we thought was really unique as most massage chairs do not include the palms. Kudos to Gintell for looking into the little details. The massage even covered the soles of the feet and toes! How considerate!  

Research has shown that music has a profound effect on our body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of healthcare known as Music Therapy, which uses music to heal. It helps with pain management, wards off depression, promotes movement and eases muscle tension. It was great when we discovered an USB outlet on the chair where we were able to insert a thumbdrive of our favourite songs. Enjoying the massage and our favourite music at the same time! Sweeeet!

Enjoying the soothing music!

Take your pick from the many functions available!

Priced at a promotional price of $4,988 (U.P. $8,988), we loved how the chair paid attention to the minor details, making the massage such a great and comfortable experience.

We spotted this bed with the leopard printed pillows and blanket. Looks really comfortable and we were ready to jump in!

Next up for trial is the IRest, which is a massage mattress with 19 airbags, designed to make you fall asleep with a gentle massage.

Kase in total bliss! 🙂 On her way to dreamland...

The in-depth vibration improves blood circulation, relieves muscle tension and stress. It also lifts and stretches your back and legs.  Moreover, for the King size bed set (2 massage mattresses), the vibration of the  individual mattress will not affect your partner, allowing you to enjoy the massage while your partner enjoys undisturbed sleep. The mattress also fits into your existing bed frame easily.

Have you heard of DIY mattress? You can choose the materials of your mattress – from coconut fibre, memory foam, latex, light density sponge to flexible foam. The bamboo fibre used to cover the mattress also helps to keep dust mites away!

The single mattress is priced at a promotional price of $2,988 (U.P. $4,988) and comes with a 10-year guarantee.

Go ahead, come on down to Gintell’s showroom for a trial. Let us know if you fell asleep there because we sure were going to….zzzzzzz

Here’s to better health and quality sleep! 🙂 

Love, Tampines 1
