You ‘Gutz’ to relax

Getting a soothing massage used to be a luxury. With stress and anxiety levels at an all-time high, it’s become a necessity to seek relaxing ways to maintain well-being. But where to turn to, now that wellness centers and spas are closed? Plus, it’s not the ideal time for home-service massages.

Sarah Lahbati-Gutierrez says that her Ogawa Master Drive Plus helps relieve muscle pain and stress.

Celebrities like Richard and Sarah Lahbati-Gutierrez, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Annabelle Rama turn to Ogawa’s range of innovative, scientifically proven, and elegantly-designed award-winning wellness massage chairs and mobile products. Engineered using superior Japanese technology and fashioned for ultimate comfort and relaxation, the company has spent decades researching, developing, and testing their massage chairs for optimum performance and wellness benefits.

Richard Gutierrez found the massage chair desirable after a tough workout or a hard day’s work.

The Ogawa Master Drive Plus massage chair is a staple in Richard and Sarah Lahbati-Gutierrez’s home. Lahbati beams, “As a hands-on mom and wife, I try to find time for myself and let my mind be at ease for at least 15 minutes before bedtime. I workout a lot and it helps me with easing muscle pain and makes me feel more recovered the next day. With everything happening, I just massage all my 2020 worries away.”

Gutierrez also uses it especially after a tough exercise or a hard day’s work. “Sarah and I try to get away every so often to find time to relax. If we can’t do that, our massage chair is the next best substitute option to help my body relax,” the actor shared.

Ruffa Gutierrez uses her Ogawa chair to destress before bed.

Every component of the Ogawa Master Drive Plus is optimized for performance, leading to an accurate chair that precisely targets acupunctural points from head-to-toe, for optimal energy restoration through a human-like full-body massage. It has the power of massage mastery, brought to life by cutting-edge Japanese technology.

Actress, beauty queen, and hands-on mom Ruffa Gutierrez says the chair was definitely her best quarantine purchase. She said, “Since it’s not safe for strangers’ hands to touch us anymore and we can’t get a real massage, at least we can de-stress with Ogawa’s Smart Reluxe. It relaxes me, calms me before going to bed and removes all the stress.”

This helps empower the body as it is equipped with advanced mechanisms to immerse in the next level of optimum relaxation. Closely emulating the sophisticated techniques of a real masseuse, it delivers the most dynamic massage experience. It can also cater to the family’s different needs with its selection of six massage programs.

Annabelle Rama’s massage chair is her ultimate stress reliever.

These include relaxation, a combination of six types of techniques — kneading, Swedish, tapping, shiatsu, clapping, and rolling — targeting the entire body for the best cohesive session.

The Shape & Tone feature is a pampering massage focused on soothing away fatigue and soreness in the back, waist, and leg area. Neck & Shoulder is defined as an after-work treat that focuses on the neck, shoulders, and upper-back area, whereas Sweet Dream is a light massage for good sleep.

The Thai Stretching option loosens tight muscles and improves range of motion for flexibility. Focusing on tapping and kneading for body stretching, this program is not recommended for the elderly and physically impaired.

It’s last option is Senior, a setting that uses air pressure to deliver a gentle massage combined with kneading, Swedish techniques, and a heat function best for the older age group.

Finally, for Gutierrez family matriarch Annabelle Rama, the Ogawa MySofa 2 massage chair is her ultimate stress reliever at home. She raves, “Napakasarap ng feeling at pampatanggal ng stress pag naka-upo na ako sa Ogawa MySofa 2. In 30 minutes, tulog na ako!”

This delivers a high-quality performance despite its smaller frame. The Extended Massage Sofa includes special features such as the rocking function, built-in Bluetooth speakers, air bags, five automated massage areas — Remedy, Neck & Shoulder, Shape & Tone, Rest & Relax, and Foot Reflexology — and lets one experience ultimate peace and weightlessness in zero gravity mode.
