Looking For A Portable Massage Chair? Get Comfortable!

Massage can work wonders on the body, and is ever-growing in popularity. People are realising that the benefits are more than worth the money. 

Did you know that there are over 5 million touch receptors in our skin? That's why we enjoy the sensation of massage so much. 

Many masseurs work on a freelance basis, visiting their clients in their homes or places of work. 

To provide a professional service, you need a massage chair that will give your client optimum comfort.

It also needs to be easy to transport, carry, and set up to save time and energy.

Of course, massage chairs aren’t just for professionals.

Lots of people purchase them for use at home to save themselves money on professional massages. Being portable means you can easily store them away when they aren’t in use so they don’t clutter up your living space.

There are lots of portable massage chairs out there. It can be difficult to decide which is the perfect one for you, so here’s a list of five different brands of portable massage chair.

We've also included an overview of their features and an idea about what previous customers think of their purchases.


Giantex Portable Massage Chair


Giantex Portable Massage Chair

This product comes with a handy carrying bag and many customers have commented on how easy it is to set up, pack away and transport, as it’s so lightweight.

It has thick foam pads for comfort, covered in functional and sleek black leather.

It’s very easy to adjust the height and head rest position so this chair can easily be adapted for use with different body types.

Customers have also commented that although this chair is extremely light, it’s surprisingly sturdy for a portable massage chair.


Ataraxia Deluxe Portable Folding Massage Chair


Ataraxia Deluxe Portable Folding Massage Chair

This model is towards the pricier end of the spectrum.

However, especially if you’re looking for a chair for professional purposes, it may well be worth investing in this slightly more upmarket folding massage chair.

The pads on this chair are in synthetic leather which is both water and oil resistant, an essential feature for a portable massage chair. 

It also comes with a carrying case, complete with strap, and has an adjustable seat, chest pad, head support and arm rests.

Customers have commented on how it can easily be adapted for use with all body types and heights.

It folds easily and is lightweight so it's great for those going from client to client.


Master Massage Portable Chairs


Master Massage Portable Chairs

This brand offers both a cheaper and a more expensive model of portable massage chair.

You can decide which one is more suited to your needs.

The more expensive model comes in a case with wheels, whereas the more economical one folds away into a carry case.

Both have received excellent reviews, but the ‘professional’ model is obviously slightly more durable and well put together, which makes it a bit heavier and not as easy to transport as the portable, light weight massage chair.

Both are oil resistant and waterproof and their frames are made of aircraft steel.


Earthlite Vortex Massage Chair


Earthlite Vortex Massage Chair

This brand offers several different models and the Vortex is more expensive than a lot of massage chairs out there.

However, it has the advantage of coming with a limited lifetime construction warranty and a two-year warranty on the cushions. It represents good value for money and should last.

It’s easy to use and can be carried around easily, the frame made of super lightweight but extremely strong aluminium.

The customer reviews for this product are overwhelming positive, praising its sturdiness and how easy it is to use.


Portable Massage Chair, Therabuilt® Apex™


Therabuilt Apex Portable Chair

Last but not least, comes this slightly more affordable option which has also received good customer reviews.

This can’t support quite as much weight as, for example, the Earthlite model, but has a 1 year warranty against defects in the frame and a 3-month warranty on the face cradle.

Customers have commented on its durability. They’ve also commented on the comfort that the pads provide and how easy the chair is to pack away.

As you can see there are a huge range of options out there when it comes to portable massage chairs.

All seem to be lightweight and easy to assemble, but some are made of different materials to others and offer different warranties.

When deciding which portable massage chair is the right one for you, pay close attention to the customer reviews and make sure you select something that meets your needs depending on whether you’re using the chair professionally or personally.

For a professional, the ability to adjust the chair for use with different clients might be the main priority.

For someone who would like a massage chair for use in the home, ease of storage is probably the main concern.

There are of course plenty of other, cheaper products out there that mimic the products above.

Although you’ll be making a saving initially, in the long term you’ll probably regret not buying from a trusted brand.
