TIP


Narration
Rocking in a chair can be a pleasing activity, improve well being, and can help discharge nervous or pent-up energy for various individuals – for example, those individuals who pace.

Glider chairs are not exactly the same as rocking chairs – their flat stable base allows for a gentle rocking motion and they do not tip over. All glider chairs are not the same, however. Some less expensive chairs glide further back, making it very hard to get into and out of them.
