The Earthlite Vortex is one of the highest rated portable massage chairs today. It comes without the heavy price tag so it is perfect for students and even those who are just starting out.
Earthlite is one of the best brands there is today but they are more than that. Aside from their innovative designs and excellent craftsmanship, they use only Earth-friendly materials such as the 100% PU Vinyl and Maple hardwood that are not from rainforests. Also, according to buyers, their customer service is amazing so you can give them a ring any time if you have a question.
Below are the features and review of the Vortex:
The design of this professional chair is simple and allows for ease of use. Set up is also very quick and it is very handy so you can pretty much bring it on events without the hassle. But don’t be fooled with its simplicity as it is fully-functional and durable.
It is very light at only 15 pounds but it has a working weight capacity of up to 300 pounds which is very impressive in today’s standards. The secret here is the advanced oval-shaped aircraft aluminum frame just like those heavy duty ladders.
The material used in the cushions is vinyl which is very soft and comfortable and feels almost like leather. Also, it can last for a very long time under normal use.
Adjusting the height is very simple which is great news for both the clients and the therapists. According to some LMT’s who are a little more than 5 feet tall, the chair’s size is perfect for them. And those who have actually use it said that the chair is comfortable for clients at 6 feet in height but it might not be ideal for those who are over. I think it would all boil down to body shape, but with the adjustability of this product, it would not be a big issue.
The chest pad and face cradle are both adjustable. You can adjust their height and angle. The seat can also be adjusted up to 3 positions.
The complete package includes a carry case for portability and a sternum pad which can be very handy for women with bigger chests. The pad can simply be attached with a Velcro strap.
One of the possible cons of this model is that it does not come with wheels. But in all honesty, it does not need one and it is more convenient to carry it than pull it. So if you are not planning on going long distances on foot to your destination, you are all good.
The cushions come with a 2-year warranty and this product overall has limited lifetime construction warranty. It is also designed and made in America plus you get a 30-day money-back guarantee on this one. This purchase will surely make you worry-free.
The Eartlite Vortex portable massage chair has everything that you are looking for. It is very light at only 15 pounds, quick to set up, and can accommodate even the heavier clients. It is also well-constructed that it is very stable. And the best thing about it is that it is cheaper than other brands.
