Need a Massage Chair Substitute? See These Portable Massagers!

Sometimes, we just aren’t able to have a massage chair in our homes.

I really don’t blame you!

However, if you need to get that massage relief, then what can you do?

Today, I’m going to do the honours of introducing some of the best alternatives to a massage chair, and how they might work.

This is great for if you are on a budget.

It also works well if you do not have the space in your home.

With these all in mind, let us get straight into explaining which other products you might want to consider instead of a massage chair.

What is the Best Alternatives for a Massage Chair

To answer this efficiently, I think it is important to understand what a massage chair can actually do.

From our product page, and many other massage chair stores, you will know that the best part of a massage chair is the way it can massage your whole body.

However, a normal massager might not be able to do that.

That’s why it’s important to get a portable massager that can be moved around your body, and reach the places you need.

Knowing this, some of the portable massagers you might want to consider are the following:

  • Massage guns
  • Body massagers
  • Leg and foot massagers

Let’s break down why each one can work out to help substitute a massage chair!

A Massage Gun is a Great Massage Chair Substitute

Why, you might be asking?

Well, a massage gun is the handheld version of a massage.

With its powerful engine inside, it can easily press into your muscle at high speed, loosening your muscles in an instant!

You probably already know half of this, so let me show you one of our coolest massage guns, the SKG F5 Massage Gun.

SKG F5 Massage Gun with massage heads

This massage gun has four heads to use, which makes it super powerful.

When switching between each one, you can help better target the muscle.

For example, the round massage gun head can be used to target large, muscle groups that still need a bit of care.

If you’re looking for something firmer, then maybe the axe head can be better suited for you!

The opportunities with a massage gun are endless!

However, there is only one down side to having a massage gun instead of having a massage chair. You have to hold the massage gun yourself.

On one hand, this is great because you can get the exact point you want, and hold it there for as long as you want.

On the other hand, your hand can get tired.

Either way, it makes for a great substitute.

Using a Body Massager is also a Great Massage Chair Substitute

When you use a body massager, you now do not need to hold it all the time.

Here’s my personal favourite body massager, the iEnjoy 4D Body Massager.

It feels like a cushion, and it fits perfectly along the back.

What’s even better is that it can be used on your upper back to target the shoulders and neck, under your hips to target the buttocks, or even under your thighs to really knead through the hamstrings.

No massage chair can massage your thighs, which means this makes for one of the best ways to massage your thighs if you’re looking to buy something which does that.

However, as a smaller product, it does have a few downsides.

The main downside of this body massager is that it relies on being plugged in, meaning you cannot be too far away from the wall.

Additionally, it only has two modes, which are kneading forwards, and kneading backwards.

While there is heating inside this body massager, the overall capabilities of it are limited.

You can only massage one place at a time!

If you want to get that full body experience, well unfortunately that’s reserved only for a massage!

Nonetheless, if you’re interested in seeing how nice a massage pillow feels, then check this out.

That leads me onto my final substitute.

A Foot Massager is the Best Way to Massage Your Feet

While a massage chair uses a combination of rollers and airbags to massage your feet, nothing beats how nice it feels to have a foot massager really dig into your feet and do the job well.

Massage chairs are a great way to massage the feet, especially when they can help promote reflexology!

However, the crown of this has to go to the foot massager itself.

Here we have the Breo iFoot Pro, one of the strongest foot massagers I’ve used.

It digs in super well, and comes with many modes, there’s almost no downsides to it!

I’ve linked it here, you’ve got to check it out!

Conclusion: No Massage Chair? No Worries!

At the end of the day, a massage chair is not for everyone.

Relaxation, however, is something everyone should have.

That’s why I’ve made this comprehensive list just for you!

But if you are wondering if a massage chair is something you might need, then I’ve also written a blog explaining how a massage chair is really worth the investment.
