5 Tips for Choosing a Massage Chair By Eric Brown 1. DON'T GO CHEAP Buy the best chair you can afford. This investment will help ensure that your client is safe and comfortable and will also make your work much easier.

 2. ADJUSTABLE IS GOOD
 Even five minutes in a poorly fitting chair can leave a client feeling cranky. Make sure your chair has a wide range of adjustments for client comfort, including height and tilt adjustments for the chest support and a double-action face rest.

 3. THE RIGHT HEIGHT
 Most chairs are relatively close to the ground. If you are tall, get a chair with height adjustment and save your back from unnecessary strain.

 4. WHEELS TO GO
 Although massage chairs are lighter than tables, you'll likely be transporting it frequently from place to place. Give your body a break and buy a chair with wheels, so you can easily roll it along behind you.

 5. SUPPORT BAR ISSUES
 Some chairs have a support bar that comes up between the legs, which can leave clients who wear skirts feeling very exposed. Choose an open design to avoid this issue.
