Massage Tables

Massage TablesEvery massage therapist relies on a good table! Your first job will be to decide what type of table you will need.

  • For house calls or on-site treatments, portable tables are generally used because they are lightweight and compact.
  • If you are combining other therapies you may want a hydraulic or electrically adjustable table.
  • For sports massage, an extra strong top, lightweight foam and durable vinyl are a necessity.
  • For Reiki and Reflexology, tables come with special end panels for comfortable, effortless access to clients while seated.
  • For Shiatsu, look for a convertible table that simply and instantly folds flat to provide a firmly padded work surface for kneeling.
  • For Feldenkrais, choose the lowest height range and firmest foam for maximum stability and sensory feedback.
  • For Cranio-sacral treatments, you'll need a firm but comfortable table with leg room at the head and foot of the table for seated work.
  • For spa treatments, you may want a multi-adjustable table or a wet treatment table.
  • For on-site treatments a desktop unit or portable massage chairs are useful.

Generally speaking, here are some factors to look for when purchasing a massage table:
  • Strength
