With nearly one in 10 people having diabetes in the United States, Mueller Furniture is aiming to educate people on the unique health benefits of furniture. Mueller Furniture is a 4th generation family-owned business with four locations in the Metro East and St. Louis area.
“Over the last few years, we’ve really seen an increase in customers looking for furniture that has health benefits in mind,” said Mark Mueller, owner of Mueller Furniture. “People want products that not only make them feel good, but promote healthy habits and overall wellness. It’s becoming more popular for manufacturers to create products that are designed to help promote circulation, relaxation and a healthier lifestyle. We offer various products that not only benefit your physical health, but your mental health as well.”
Mueller said the ability to elevate your feet and increase blood flow can be very important for someone who has diabetes or is dealing with diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage from high blood glucose levels that can greatly impact the legs and feet. Symptoms of this condition can include numbness, pain and lack of mobility.
“Massage therapy can greatly change the day-to-day life of someone living with diabetes and trying to manage it,” said Mueller. “Our Cozzia massage chairs are designed to greatly improve circulation. It’s been proven that massages can help improve blood sugar levels and help people deal with symptoms of diabetic neuropathy.”
Mueller Furniture also offers adjustable beds, couches and lift chairs that help promote relaxation. If you are interested in learning more, head to muellerfurniture.com.
