Tips on Choosing the Right Massage Table

There are a lot of things to decide when it comes to choosing the right massage table.  The first issue is usually the easiest: do you want a portable table or a stationary table?  If you will be traveling to clients’ homes then a portable table is obviously “a must”.  However, there is a lot more to consider before your big purchase! 

For portable massage tables, big concerns are often the weight of the table, the sturdiness, and the ease of traveling with it.  You don’t want to hurt your own back by carrying an excessively heavy table!  Finding something you can manage is a must, though some heavier tables can be easier to handle with accessories like rolling table carts.  The sturdiness of the table should also be a concern, especially if you have heavier clientele.  Some tables have a working weight up to 1,000 pounds and still manage to be lightweight themselves!  The thickness of the padding, and thus the comfort of the table are also important.  The thickness can range from an inch to up to four inches, which really can make a difference. 

For a stationary massage table, you often have a much wider choice when it comes to style.  Some tables can even go from an upright seated position to a fully flat position with a push of a button.  Some have wheels making them mobile around the office, while others have sturdy metal or wooden legs.  Some tables offer cabinets underneath the table that make for convenient storage of accessories. 

There is a lot to think about when it comes to finding the best table for you and your happy customers.  A great way to narrow down the choices is to go online and visit a medical info site, or view other happy customers’ reviews.  Comparison charts are also helpful.  These options will help you get an idea of what type of table to select.
