Rocking chairs of all kinds like the swivel rocker, the gliding rocker or an original design wooden rocker is a health supporting chair to sit in.
The body laying still or sitting still creates stagnation that leads to disease of the body. Movement creates health. The small movements of the rocking chair moves the lymph that filters the 'puddles' of stagnation and increases the oxygen to all the cells. Lymph can not move without the mechanism of muscle action or movement. The lymph system does not have a pump like the heart has for the veins and arteries. The lymph movement is reliant on physical movement of the muscles to gently pump the lymph nodes and connecting vessels.
Your body needs your help to keep it healthy. When you sit try to rock as much as possible. You will notice the difference.
