The Official
Kennedy Rocker®

The Official Kennedy Rocker® is steeped in history. This rocker was beloved by President John F. Kennedy to relieve back pain from a lingering war injury. Prescribed by his doctor, Janet Travell, who attested that rocking relieves tension in the lower back by keeping muscles moving – contracting and relaxing. The woven cane seat and back offer firmness and natural spring. A perfect choice to gift a loved one because it ships fully assembled and ready to rock.
