This wiki has been updated 23 times since it was first published in December of 2017. Whether you're training to be a massage therapist or are already working, if you intend to offer your services in offices, malls and other places with limited space, you'll need a quality portable chair. We found models that can be set up and taken down in a snap, and offer many of the same features and comforts of full-size options. Plus, they won't take up much room in your home or vehicle. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 20, 2019:

There is no one massage experience that works for every client, so we made sure our portable massage chairs are versatile enough to meet almost any of your customers' demands.

Both the Earthlite Avila II and the Earthlite Vortex have removable sternum pads, so you can offer that extra support along the breastbone when clients request it, or creater a flatter surface for them to rest their chest, should they prefer that. Most of our selections are highly adjustable, but the Pisces Dolphin II stands out as it can rotate to put the client in the horizontal position, giving the masseuse much more access to critical areas that need to be worked on. Unfortunately, the Royal Massage Ataraxia had to go because many complain that the headrest is very hard to adjust, and can be rather fragile.

We looked for a few other luxurious features that would help clients nearly forget they aren't at a full-service spa, like the dense small-cell foam in the Master Massage Apollo, which should really cradle customers, and the built-in essentials pouch on this same model for things like a cell phone, wallet, or even massage oil.

Naturally, ease of transport was important on this list, and while all items fit the bill, the Giantex HW51339 stood out as it folds down so compactly. The Master Massage Rio also caught our attention for its high-end rolling luggage case, and the BestMassage Therapy was a hit, since even when it's assembled, it still takes up little room.
