With a predetermined bend in the middle, the TAO Chair sits upright easily in 99% of chair types. We have taken 4-natural therapies (FIR, negative ions, PEMF, hot stone) and packed them into this smaller model. You get the same wellness-defining benefits in a more focused and specific approach. Back pain pervades our society and is one of the leading chronic pains among adult Americans. This device was conceived as the answer to this problem. Experts say that 80% of adult Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives. This statistic can be attributed to the many sedentary desk jobs, driving jobs, and a habit of long hours of watching TV or playing video games many Americans have. Sitting on the TAO Chair throughout the day is an efficient way to counteract the development of pain and decrease any aches that currently exist. Daily exposure to PEMF can perform wonder for your physical and mental well-being. Consistently pressing your body against heated gemstones loosens tense muscles and relieves built-up tension in your body. For those with driving jobs, an adapter can be purchased to make the TAO Chair useable with the lighter port of your vehicle. Use it while you commute to your job, on long road trips, or while operating a commercial vehicle to prevent the development of stiffness and pain. Everyone can improve their relaxation each day and focus the effects of the TAO Chair on the area of the body that tends to need it the most.
