A few months ago I was able to try out a Somatron chair, very similar to the one in the picture. I remembered the experience today as I thought about some stiffness and soreness in my back and shoulders! The chair was amazing! I had been in one before at a conference, but it was for a short time, and the environment was very distracting. Sitting in one for twenty minutes or longer in a quiet space can be a completely different experience. I have always loved the feeling of sitting at a live orchestra concert or being very close to the fireworks going off at the fourth of July, so I was not surprised that I enjoyed the Somatron chair. It was definitely therapeutic and relaxing for me, although I think it would be the same as with anything else, subject to personal preference. Somatron has some encouraging research on their website about the clinical use of the Somatron technology, but I think there is much research yet to be done to verify the true effects of this type of intervention. Personally, I loved it, and wish that I had a chair in my living room! 

-- Just thought I would share my Somatron chair wish with you today. If you ever get the chance, try one out and let me know what you think!
