Best Massage Chairs for Small Person

Which Chair Is Best for the Smaller User?

If you're anything like me, you're not tall. That can mean that some of the bigger massage chairs don't fit you as well as others. Many may believe that a large massage chair is fit to seat all sizes, and can easily support a petit user, but that’s not necessarily true. A massage chair fit to size on a smaller user maintains a secure massage so that the user can experience the effects of the chair from head to toe. For smaller people, it can be difficult to determine which massage chair will work best for their body type.

Which are the best models for a petite person? Well, worry not. We're here to tell you which chairs we know are best for smaller users.

We advise smaller users to find a massage chair that features body scanning technology. This innovative feature measures the user’s body before their massage, so that the rollers, and massage track can accurately target the body during the massage. With body scanning technology, smaller users are ensured they will receive a thorough massage tailored to their specific body. Smaller users should also keep in mind the airbag massage feature when looking for their new chair. Airbag massage offers compression therapy throughout the body, relieving tense muscles. Body scanning technology in combination with airbag massage ensures that smaller users are assessed accurately for their body type, and that the massage technology embedded operates properly given the user’s unique body size and type.

Below, we’ve created a short list of some massage chairs we find best for petite users. These chairs are all different in their own way, but provide the best support for those of a smaller stature.
