The Equipment

A good chair massage starts with a professional massage chair. Here are the two things you need to know upfront about massage chairs:

  1. The perfect chair has yet to be invented. Each one has strengths and weaknesses.
  2. They all work for 15-minutes.

That being said, there are four basic characteristics you need to evaluate in any massage chair:

  • Adjustments: For the height of the practitioner and the comfort of the customer
  • Setup/Breakdown: Must be quick and easy
  • Portability: lightweight, small form factor, comes with case and wheels
  • Safety: Sturdy and stable


TouchPro recommends the second-generation massage chair manufactured by Stronglite–the Ergo Pro II–because:

  • It was co-developed by David Palmer, who introduced the very first professional massage chair in 1986. Nobody knows more about the proper functioning and design of massage chairs than David.
  • It is the most adjustable chair and yet its the easiest chair to fit to the customer and the practitioner. There is no uncomfortable brace between the legs.
  • It sets up quickly and folds into a compact case.
  • There is no danger of the customer tilting the chair over backwards
  • It hs exclusive features, such as complete removal of the leg rests for people with problem knees and a swiveling chest pad to make foom for the “Buddha” bellies.
