Massages are a great way to relax, get some physical relief for your tight and tired muscles, and possibly even improve your health.

Wouldn't it be great if you can get a professional-level massage without having to make an appointment every time you're feeling tense? Better yet, wouldn't it be great if you could get a massage anywhere you go? 

A portable massage chair could make your relaxation dreams a reality. 

The right massage chair can fit nearly everywhere you'd need one to be. You can take it anywhere, and you'll have instant pain relief with the push of a button.

If you're ready to have the relaxing lifestyle you've always wanted, you've come to the right place. We're going to teach you everything you need to know to purchase a portable chair you'll recommend to friends and colleagues! 

Portable Massage Chair Buying 101: What to Consider 

If you do a quick search for "portable massage chair", you're going to come back with more results than you know what to do with. 

When you have so many companies that are willing to sell you a massage chair, it can be difficult to pick the right one for you. 

There are a lot of things to consider when you're about to make your purchase. But if you zero in on the qualities we list below, you'll be able to find a chair you'll be happy with.

Use 

If you're thinking about buying a portable massage chair, you probably have solid reasons behind wanting to make that purchase. Take time to really think about why you want to buy a portable massage chair so you can make a smart purchase. 

Are you planning on using your massage chair at work because it can help you deal with tension and stress at the office?

Do you need a massage chair to help you unwind in the evening? Could your spouse use one for their bad back, or could sitting in a massage chair help you after an intense workout?

When you spend time thinking about why you truly need your chair, you can start looking for certain features and functionalities that make the most sense to have. 

Budget 

Before you start seriously shopping for your massage chair, take time to think about the amount of money you want to spend.

You can find a massage chair in nearly any price range you can think of. When you have an idea of what you want to spend, you can start to narrow your search by price ranges.

Don't assume that you have to spend a lot of money to find a massage chair that can suit your needs. Sometimes going with a slightly older model can help you save money, and still get you a quality massage.

Durability 

A portable massage chair is going to make several trips around your home, office, and possibly travel far with you. It's important to make sure that any chair you get is going to be able to withstand being moved around. 

The best way to learn about durability is to read the chair descriptions carefully. See if the description lists that it's great for travel and take note of how much weight it can take. 

Also, be sure to pay close attention to online reviews. See what other people have said about moving the chair around. 

Longevity and durability are two sides of the same coin. Read carefully to see if some people have had their chairs for years, or if they constantly have to replace them. 

Customer Care

Don't underestimate the power of having a strong customer support team to help you whenever you have questions.

If something were to go wrong with your chair, who would you be able to call? Would your chair be under a warranty, or would you be out of luck?

If you were interested in more products, or in accessories, would you be able to easily contact someone to ask questions?

Buying a chair from a third-party retailer like Amazon could mean that you have less support in the end. Going with a strong brand that has a dedicated support staff can help you in the long run.

Size

When you're shopping for a portable massage chair, make sure that you spend time looking at the specific dimensions of the chair you're thinking about purchasing. 

Some portable chairs may be too big for what you're trying to use them for. If you have a slim office chair or a tiny couch, a very big portable massage chair won't be able to fit where you need it to. 

If you're having troubling picking something that's the right size, take a little time to measure the furniture you use the most. Once you have those dimensions figured out, you'll be able to better choose a chair to suits your needs.

Body Focus 

What part of your body is going to need the most attention in your massage chair? 

Don't just focus on something as broad as your back. You may have back pain, but you should think about the parts of your back that need the most attention.

If you have trouble with lower back pain, you should consider getting a massage chair that can focus on the lumbar region.

People that tend to have neck and shoulder pain should consider getting a chair that can focus on the upper region of your back.

If you have pain issues with your arms and legs, there are chairs you can get that focus on that region. People that want to consider spot-treating their problem areas may want to not go down the chair route and should consider a hand-held device.
