Chair Massage Vs. Table Massage
If you get a massage in a wellness center or a spa, you’ll most of the time encounter table massage but for those who call a massage therapist at home or at the office, they usually bring a portable chair massage which is more convenient for this situation. In this article, we wanted to give you an overview of the differences between a chair massage and a table massage with pros and cons and some useful information.
Generally, table massage is perfect for full body treatment and ultimate relaxation as it allows the therapist to work on your muscles and body parts giving you a relaxing feeling.
On the other hand, seated massage is good for treating specific knots and painfull spots that are related to neck, shoulders, back and other areas in a shorter session.

My final words
These two types of massage equipment have their pro's and con's but serve the same utility: relaxation and pain relieve.
It mainly depends on your needs, if you have enough space in your house/apartment for a table massage (portable or not), it can be a nice investment. if you plan to learn massage or just give some massage to your friends/husband/wife...
On the other hand, a massage chair is a different option to consider depending on your budget and what you want to do. Good electric chairs have an average price of 2000 dollars and classic chairs around 100 dollars.
Remember that with an electric one, you let the chair do the job and with a classic one you need someone to massage you, that's all the difference!
