Whether you are a licensed massage therapist or a professional tattoo artist, you need a quality portable massage chair that can handle all of your clients needs.
Unfortunately, the market is flooded with cheap chairs that look nice but fall apart when you need them the most.
This is example of a different competitor chair made out of poor quality. You don’t want this happening when your client is on the chair. How embarrassing would that be?
Master Massage is a brand made out of quality. The owner, Michael Friedman, is obsessed about quality. The workmanship that goes into his brand’s product is one of the best we’ve seen.
He believes in fierce, genuine leadership. And hard work that follows. Here’s a quote from their website:
“If his work be merely mediocre, he will be left severely alone if he achieves a masterpiece, it will set a million tongues a-wagging.“
Today, we’ll review one his products: Master Massage Professional portable massage chair.
Features and Benefits
One of the first thing you notice about this chair is its royal blue upholstery. Its good quality faux leather and is CFC (Chlorofluorocarbon)- free and is water and oil resistant. This is great for durability and longevity. If you buy a chair without these qualities, you’ll see them crack after couple months of usage.
The cushion is 2 inches deep and made out of high-density foam. Many manufacturers will skimp out on layering because they know they can cut costs and get away with it (it’s hard to judge the depth of products through pictures). You don’t want customer to be uncomfortable feeling the aluminum frame beneath the cushion.
The working weight of this chair is 650 lbs, which is enough to hold a majority of clients. Another thing I like about this brand is that they don’t advertise only their static weight, because that number is usually is higher but worthless to us consumers (because people exert dynamic weight onto a chair).
The aluminum base is aircraft-quality and is finished in such way that prevents nicks, rusts, and scratches. The surface of the base is smooth even in places where it matters less (like near the attachment of the cushions).
The face cradle can be adjusted in 6 ways. This is surprisingly helpful for clients who tend to feel pressure on their cheekbone or forehead during a massage. I know I myself have received a massage on a chair that left my face feeling sore and it’s not pleasant!
The chest rest, seat, and arm rest and are also adjustable, making this chair one of the most customizable chairs out there.
My favorite part of this chair is the thoughtful design of a session pouch. There is a small pouch underneath the seat where you can put your clients glasses and jewelry. It’s the small things that make a difference!
It also comes with a carrying case with wheels so you don’t have to worry about buying a dolly (we’ve seen this before).
There is a 5 year warranty for the construction and 2 years for the upholstery.
One thing that needs improvement is that this chair isn’t super comfortable for shorter people. Any one under 5 feet 2 inches might find it tough to get comfortable. Also, the dismember process may take some getting used to since it’s not intuitive.
