"Arthritis Today", the magazine of the Arthritis Foundation, suggests "rock the night away." The article continues: "Sit in a rocking chair while watching TV or reading, and just rock. Rocking is relaxing and it can improve strength and flexibility – especially in your knees."

Studies conducted at the Medical College of Virginia have shown that 'kinetic therapy' - the constant, gentle motion of a rocking chair - can dramatically speed healing in severely ill patients. With regular rocking, starting with one hour a day the first week, increasing the exercise period by 10 minutes a day each succeeding week, 'the body settles into a natural
rhythm that harnesses incredible powers of recuperation and regeneration,' says Dr. Heinrich Addleheim of the Kinetic Therapy Clinic in Berlin. 'We've seen cases of patients recuperating from heart attack and stroke without any trace of permanent damage - simply because they used a rocking chair while they were recovering. I've seen people bedridden with arthritis who were up and around inside a week after regular use of the rocking chair. It's not just a piece of furniture, it's a remarkable medical device!
