Product description

A number of studies have found the act of rocking releases endorphins in the body that produce a calming and relaxing effect. Reducing anxiety as well as pain in people recovering from illness, there is evidence to suggest the regular use of a rocking chair actually shortens recovery time. These studies also demonstrate a rocking chair may actually do far more for physical and mental health as the relaxation provided by the rhythm of rocking also improves the ability to focus and concentrate. Aside from these benefits, there are few other products that evoke such a domestic feel and the inclusion of wood in the design, as well as referencing the traditional notion of a rocking chair, helps to domesticise the feel of the piece. The form itself, whilst intentionally unusual for a rocking chair, has a familiarity that is at once understandable even though the usual idea of a rocking chair is one that is more upright with a turned wooden frame and is associated with an older demographic.
