The Porta-lite GO ergonomic on-site massage chair is the most adjustable portable massage chair in the industry.
Simply lean and let your body weight do the work.
So what does this mean? It means no matter what the body size or shape of your client, you can get them the most comfortable they could possibly be. To sum up - it is extremely comfortable!
You can even go almost fully horizontal with the upper torso so you are treating the client like you would on a flat massage table and all the extra benefits that brings - more relaxed posture and muscles.
Everything is adjustable from the contoured and ergonomic face cradle to the arm rest, chest pad, seat pad and removable kneeling pads.
So why are the knee pads removable? Well, for some clients they may hinder getting into the most comfortable position. In that case, they can sit on the seat and position their legs as they wish - even almost horizontal as mentioned above so it is almost like they are laying on a massage table with their torso horizontal to the floor.
And because the client can lay more horizontal, you as a therapist need to use less force in your arms, shoulders and wrists because your body weight can do more of the heavy work. This helps you avoid strains and injury.
A durable aircraft aluminium frame layered with Premium PU vinyl, the same used in high end auto manufacturing, along with small cell moulded foam cushioning gives the chair a nice soft feel and features a sternum/chest pad to make treatments much more comfortable for your female clients.
The GO portable massage chair is called GO, because it folds easily and quickly and has its own specially designed luggage case with 4 rolling wheels allowing you to GO to your treatments quickly by car, walking or public transport.
Also, very unique to this chair, there is an essential oil diffuser between the chest and arm pads so the aromas raise directly into the clients nose - how cool is that!!
2 Year Guarantee on all components of chair and extended 10 year guarantee on the frame.
1 Year Guarantee on case.

1. Why did you choose the Porta-Lite Advantage Massage Chair? It is very lightweight. It is only 7kg. It comes in its own mobile box which comes with wheels. It is so easy to get around. The chair has got 3 different settings which are very easy to take in and out of.
2. Which therapies you will be using the chair for? I am working in Somerset and I am working as a mobile therapist. If you are looking to go mobile you are going to need to have a massage chair because simply a table is too heavy to get around. You got to look after own body.
3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? Massage Warehouse has got quite a good selection of chairs available. This one suited me the best. I am really like the colour. I think it is a really professional colour. It is very comfortable, very stable. I have found that the clients have found it very stable to be in.
Extremely quick and easy to set up and pack away, plus, its not ridiculously heavy! Also quite comfy once your'e on too!
The chair arrived quickly and was easy to set up. I have used it on over 50 clients at home and in offices and everyone has found it very comfortable. The extra thick foam feels really good and it looks very professional. It is slightly heavy/awkward to lift in and out of the case but I am getting used to that. I often use the chair instead of my couch now for working into clients' necks and shoulders because it allows better access and upright posture for me.
Order arrived quickly and the massage quality is great. I will definitely use massage warehouse again
Massage tables comes in many different shapes and size. It can be confusing for you, the customer, to choose the right one but we are here to help!
A lot of customers call us up after they have bought the wrong size massage table elsewhere and we would like to help you avoid this mistake. It normally goes something like this; they like the look of a picture of a massage table on a website, they like the low price and then they check the carrying weight is ok. If the carrying weight fits their needs they click add to cart and the new massage table turns up at their doorstep in a few days. They unfortunately assume all massage tables are pretty much the same width and size.
The standard size of a massage table is 28 inches wide (71cms) and 73 inches (185cms) long. One of the reasons many "lightweight" budget massage tables are so cheap is because
Make sure the massage table is the right size for you and your clients as the narrow massage tables at 61cms can be very uncomfortable for anyone who isn't petite and many clients cannot relax with their shoulders and arms unsupported.
Almost all therapists choose the standard 28 inch wide massage table. All our massage tables are the same length so it is only the width and shape our customers need to decide on.
Your massage table should be wide enough to cater for the wide variety of shapes and sizes of your clients. It needs to be wide enough to comfortably accommodate your treatment style, while being narrow enough to ensure you don’t have to strain your own back during treatments.
Each therapist's postural training and ability is different, so only you will know what massage table width you can handle. We have spoken to therapists who are five feet tall and get the wider 30 inch massage tables, and we speak to six foot therapists who have back problems and go for a 25 inch wide massage table. Everyone is different.
Generally speaking, if you are of smaller stature, you may do better with one of the narrower 25-inch massage tables. If you're quite tall, or are particularly keen to offer your clients a very spacious experience, a 30-inch massage table might be more suitable.
If you are in doubt, see if you can go into your local training college and see whether the massage tables there suit you. However, there is another way to get a feel for what will work of you don’t have access to a couch when you are deciding:
Cut out a piece of cardboard to the dimensions of both sizes you are deciding between. Put it on top of the kitchen table and lean over it. Visualise a client lying there, and see which width will suit you and your client best.
Make sure you can get close enough to the table that you can pivot at the waist and have your shoulders squared to the clients hips, with your hands parallel to the clients' spine. Working in this position will ensure an injury-free career, so it's an important factor in your decision.
The most popular massage table widths are 28 and 30 inches. We sell 25-inch massage tables but you should really only choose this width if you are shorter in height and having a wider massage table might put your own back at risk over the course of your career.
You can also choose the 25-inch if you want to have the lightest massage table possible. By reducing the width of the massage table, the weight is also reduced. Now, this can mean a trade-off of some client comfort, but this trade is often worthwhile if you are a fully mobile therapist and use public transport frequently, where saving a kilogram or two will make a difference to you over time.
Nowadays, almost all portable massage tables come with height adjustable legs. Whichever massage table you choose should come with a large height range to accommodate you, and to cater for a broad range of therapies.
A common height range of massage tables is between 60 to 80cm, and this height range should cater for everyone. To check which height you need your massage table to be at follow this rule of thumb:
1. Stand up straight with your hands by your sides. Clench your fists.
2. Measure the distance between the floor and your knuckles
3. This distance should equal the height of your massage table.
4. Add a few inches in height to allow for the body of the patient on the massage table.
The height of a massage table is usually only adjusted when different therapists are using the same massage table, or if you have a client that is outside the average size you normally treat. So for example, if someone with a lot of body depth comes for a treatment after an average size person, you may need to adjust the height a notch or two.
You should be able to adjust the height of a massage table in just 2-3 minutes. Even though you mightn't adjust the height very often, the faster the better when you do have to!
There are 2 types of height adjustment mechanisms found on modern massage tables.
1) Twisting knobs (found only on wooden massage tables):
If you are working with a wooden massage table, it is better to have two knobs on each of the four legs for greater strength and reliability. When buying online, make sure to check how many knobs are on the legs. Cheap massage tables often only have one knob, and when you raise the legs to the highest heights they are less stable and have been known to snap.
2) Telescopic push-buttons (found only on aluminium massage tables):
The mechanism to adjust the height of an aluminium massage table is much the same as the push-button method on aluminium crutches. It only takes a few seconds to adjust each leg, and the mechanism is very reliable. Check out the video to see how it’s done.
The following are the different shapes of massage tables on the market.
1. Rectangle shaped with square corners
This is the traditional shape of a massage table and the one you are probably familiar with seeing. Our Combi-lite 3 in 1 and Affinity Portaflex are shaped like this.
2. Rectangle shaped with rounded corners
Same as no 1 above in every way except the corners are rounded. Does not affect function in any way, just a different design/look.
3. Hour glass shaped with gradual gradient
A fabulous massage table innovation in recent years, which solves a lot of the problems around choosing the correct width is the hourglass shaped massage table.
This style of massage table is wider at the ends, and tapers somewhat at the middle. This provide a spacious and comfortable experience for your client (as the shoulder and feet area are 30 inches wide) without compromising your own posture and health, as the middle of the couch where you lean over is a much narrower 26 inches wide.Having recently upgraded to one of these hourglass massage tables myself, I can vouch that my working days are much more comfortable, and many of my clients have commented on the extra comfort from the wider shoulder area.
The name says it all! There are no corners on the massage table. Therapists normally choose this for one of two reasons. They simply like the look of this massage table and it is aesthetically more pleasing in their treatment room and/or they find it easier to move around the massage table during the treatment without having to side step the corners. This is particularly handy when space is limited in your treatment room.
