Rocking Chairs

What is it about rocking chairs that make us feel so at ease and tranquil once we've plunked into one and set ourselves in motion? The gentle back and forth movement is as calming as are babies when rocked in the arms of their parent. While modern massage chairs are designed to un-knot weary muscles, I look forward to relaxing in a good ol' fashion rocking chair at the end of a hard day's work.
