How Does A Massage Bed Work? Everything You Need to Know

Published: 24th Apr, 2023

Wouldn’t it be a dream to have access to an in-home massage at the click of a finger? We all know how relaxing and necessary a massage is – but they can often be considered a luxury, saved for the spa or a special occasion. Having a massage bed in your own home can be the ultimate indulgence.

But what exactly is a massage bed, and how does it work? If you’ve seen the rise of in-home massage or are curious about our CERAGEM V6, you’re not alone. We’re going to break down exactly what our beds do and how they can benefit your health and wellness.

What is a Massage Bed?

A massage bed aims to recreate the treatment and results that in-person massage offers without the need for human touch. Massage beds with thermal massagers boast an added element of heat to provide even greater relief for back pain. 

Though you’ve probably seen massage chairs in the airport and at the nail spa, or have even picked up a small massage device over the years, there’s a crucial difference between these devices and massage beds.

Take our CERAGEM V6. This therapeutic thermal massager is an FDA-cleared Class II medical device. Yet rather than the erratic poking and prodding you may come to expect with other massage devices, you’ll find heated massage rollers that aim to replicate a hot stone massage. What’s more, massage beds personalize the massage experience depending on the user. With patented scanning technology, each massage is tailored to your individual pain points and knots, providing a fully customized massage experience.

How Do Massage Beds Differ From Traditional Massages?

Massage beds aren’t entirely alien from traditional massage, but without the involvement of any human hand manipulation, there are some differences you can expect. While a traditional massage will often involve a therapist utilizing their hands and arms to release pressure points within the body, a massage bed uses thermal roller technology. You will find, though, that massage beds mirror massage therapist techniques, particularly in relation to a hot stone massage. 

With a massage bed, you won’t have to worry about scheduling an appointment or navigating the health concerns of in-person experiences. Massage beds allow for daily use even when you are feeling under the weather, a luxury traditional massage cannot always provide.  

The Benefits of Using a Massage Bed at Home

The lasting benefits of massage beds are similar to what you would experience in person. Not only are any knots loosened and muscle and joint pain temporarily relieved, but you’ll find that your circulation improves and you will feel as equally (if not more) relaxed.

If your lifestyle is relatively sedentary, or you tend to experience muscular aches and pains on a regular basis, frequently using a massage bed at home could prove fruitful for you. By boosting circulation, a massage bed will stimulate blood flow to the muscles, as well as help them relax. Combined with the thermal rollers that tackle the soft tissue of the body, expect to find temporary relief from your aches and pains with regular use, too.

Alongside the allure of muscular bliss, these beds bring an abundance of relaxation. By setting up a wellness space in your home – somewhere to meditate, practice yoga, and utilize your massage bed – you’ll be able to welcome in total tranquility. Think sacred space with soft sounds playing in the background, allowing you to unwind after a long day.


What Makes a CERAGEM Massage Bed Special?

Not all massage beds will provide the same tailored, in-depth experience. Ceragem massage beds and chairs rely upon innovative technologies to deliver an effective and enjoyable massage experience. Our FDA-approved CERAGEM V6, for example, comes equipped with patented spinal scanner technology to detect each user’s spinal length and curvature, as well as body weight. This technology allows for fully customizable treatment, while the thermal rollers automatically detect the necessary spots for a soothing acupressure massage.
