Portable Massage Chairs are typically designed for convenient and easy transport to on-site massage treatments. They are also designed in order to maintain your client's proper body alignment, while they acquire the benefits of your therapeutic massage. Portable massage chairs are normally very lightweight, with an aluminum frame and a weight as little as 18-pounds.

Independent massage therapists must take their business to many different environments. This means adapting to clients' homes and offices. A massage therapist can't always count on having the adequate space for their full-sized massage table, massage chair and all of their equipment. Therefore, alternatives such as desktop massage chairs are sometime necessary.

Desktop Massage Chairs provide a convenient and easy way to treat clients on-site. Desktop massage chairs support the head and face, allowing the muscles of the neck and upper back to relax while maintaining proper support. These easily attach to any desk, table, or flat surface. Just pull up a chair and you have a quick created a massage station. Desktop massage chairs are an ideal way to treat clients at work - especially those clients who are pregnant or in wheelchairs.

Clients will sometimes experience soreness or tightness in between massage appointments with their certified massage therapist. In order to stay loose on a daily basis massage therapists will sometimes recommend a home aid such as an electric massage chair to tide those tense body parts over until your next appointment.

Electric Massage Chairs offer a great way to relax and loosen muscles without having to book an appointment with a Massage Therapist. With an electric massage chair you can enjoy a pulsating rub down without even leaving the comfort of your own home. However, regardless of how enjoyable a sit-down in an electric massage chair is, it only offers a very general massage. For specific massage work and techniques you will still need to book an appointment with a Registered Massage Therapist. There are a variety of different models of electric chairs to choose from such as - Shiatsu massage chairs, deep tissue massage chairs, gentle soothing massage chairs and relaxing massage chairs. Higher end massage chairs will offer a collection of massage options with two or more massage styles to choose from.

What to look for in an electric massage chair:

  • Adjustability
  • Ergonomic design
  • Comfortable, eye-catching upholstery that matches your home's dcor
  • Comfort
  • Convenience
  • Extras, such as eyeglass and jewelry pouches, removable sternum rests (great for pregnant clients) and carrying cases.
