Best Swinging Chair Hammocks Reviewed

Posted in Reviews on September 8, 2016

A swinging chair hammock isn’t just a ‘nice to have’, it’s a must have. Research has shown that the humble hammock has extensive and long lasting health benefits.

The correct swinging chair hammock can reduce your physical stress and is able to relieve pain in your lower back and neck.

Lying in a hammock perpendicularly can alleviate some of the pressure off your muscles, leaving you feeling weightless and pain-free and the way in which the hammock adjusts and molds to the shape and weight of your body, it provides the necessary support.

The beauty of the hammock is its simplicity. Once you hang it up, you can stretch out in it and it will mold to your body as if it was made just for you.

We also know that a swinging chair hammock or hammock helps calm and relax your body and mind, which also contributes to you feeling better, physically and psychologically. And it’s cheaper than therapy.

It can also increase concentration. It’s all to do with the swinging and spinning motion of the hammock which stimulates the cerebral cortex, which increases a person’s ability to focus and concentrate.

Apparently the swinging and spinning is good for impatient readers, getting them to focus on the task at hand.

A lot pf people use a swinging chair hammock for meditating or yoga because it helps with balance, focus and relieving pressure points,

I however do not care for articles about the health benefits of a hammock. The very act of consciously going to a relaxing spot, either on the porch, under a shady tree or by the pool is already enough of a health reason.

It’s time away from a desk, meetings and unnecessary phone calls and that, in my opinion is already a huge stress reliever.

The Sorbus Blue Hanging Rope Hammock Chair Swing Seat features on a lot of reviews and ‘top’ lists and is considered a #1 bestseller on Amazon in porch swings.

The comfortable and trendy swinging chair hammock is the perfect addition to any indoor or outdoor space and should you need to pack it away, it stores compactly and will fit in a linen cupboard or drawer.

This is a great addition for outside lounging or to accent a teen’s bedroom. The swinging chair hammock can be hung anywhere and holds up to 265 pounds. It’s worth mentioning that that the hanging hardware isn’t included.

The majority of complaints on Amazon aren’t actually complaints but rather people suggesting they should have bought two to stop the arguing of who’s going to be sitting in it.

One reviewer mentioned the size, which was just too small and another said that as a senior citizen he would never be able to get in and out of the swinging chair hammock easily.

What I did notice was a review a mom with an autistic daughter wrote, saying that it did what other ‘special equipment’ pieces do at three times the price.

Large Brazilian Hammock Chair by Hammock Sky®


More than 300 reviews and a near perfect score is no small feat for a product on Amazon. After all you’re trying to please all of the people all of the time, which is almost always impossible.

The swing chair hammock from Hammock Sky® is well priced, which is a good thing because you might find yourself buying more than one.

The swing chair hammock is incredibly comfortable and is wonderful when you need to unwind and destress, after a long day of work, studying or running around.

Contrary to popular belief a swing chair hammock isn’t only for summer. Some people like to use it on the porch for summer and spring and when the colder months appear it’s moved indoors and placed close to a fire or in a warm reading nook.

It's easy to hang it on a tree limb; beam; stud or any other overhang that can support your weight and it comes with a carry bag should you want to travel with it. And you will.
