What Is a Massage Table?

Massage therapists use massage tables to position their clients during a session. A high-quality massage table can provide you and your client with numerous benefits. There are several types of massage tables that you can purchase that have different features. 

Types of Massage Tables

The type of massage table you pick depends on your needs and clientele. Let's discuss the three types of massage tables we sell. 

Portable Massage Tables

Portable massage tables are a great option for those who want to take their talents on the road. You can offer your clients massages in your office, at their home, or in another location. Our portable massage tables easily fold into a handheld container that's easy to put in the trunk of your car. 

There are many features you can experience with this type of massage table, such as:

  • Optional bolster for added comfort

  • 2-1/2" thick multilayered semi-firm form 

  • Ultrasoft face cushion 

  • Half Reiki/half standard endplates

  • Dual Maple headrest outlets

Electric Massage Tables

Electric massage tables are a great choice because you can easily raise and lower the table at the touch of a button. They're more accessible than other types of tables for all types of people. Some of the benefits you can experience with our electric massage tables include:

Aura Deluxe and Aura Basic stationary massage tables are two of the leading options on the market. The prices of these stationary tables are slightly higher than portable tables. However, it's worth the investment if you don't plan on traveling with your table.

What Are the Benefits of a Massage Table?

Whether you run a spa or massage therapy business, having a massage table can help you attract customers. Giving your clients a massage in a chair or on the floor can be uncomfortable. Having a massage table enables you to treat them on a surface that feels comfortable. 

Other benefits of purchasing a massage table include:

  • Increased relaxation for your clients

  • You can easily perform different types of massages 

  • Your client will be stable during their session

Our massage tables offer luxurious comfort and advanced features that you can advertise to potential clients. Some of these include:

  • Headrests

  • Adjustable height ranges

  • Comfortable PVC-free urethane upholstery 

Our high-quality materials and design give your clients luxurious comfort and relaxation during their spa experience. Another benefit of a massage table is that they have an impressive weight capacity. Licensed professional massage therapists and at-home bodywork enthusiasts can enjoy the massage tables we offer. 

At Massage Tools, we carry different types of massage tables. Some of our most popular ones include portable, stationary, and high-density foam tables. 

Features to Look for in a Massage Table

There are specific things you need to consider when choosing a massage table. These tables are an investment, so you want to ensure you choose the correct one. 

Weight Capacity

The weight capacity is the total amount of weight that your table can easily hold. This includes your client's weight and the pressure you'll be putting on it while you work. You'll also want to consider the added weight from accessories, such as blankets and bolsters. 

Most massage tables can support a weight of at least 500 pounds. Some exceed 750 pounds. 

The weight capacity of a massage table is a crucial aspect. It ensures that your table can withstand the demands of your clients. It also means you can open up your services to more people. 

Adjustable Height Range & Headrests

Having adjustable headrests and height range in massage tables is important so you can cater to various clients. The adjustable height range of a table can help with the following:

  • Easy access on and off the bed

  • Accommodating the preferences of the masseuse and the needs of the client

Hydraulic tables adjust your client to a position where you can apply better static pressure on the muscles. It also helps your body mechanics.  

An adjustable headrest will assist you in the following ways:

  • Posture correction 

  • Neck support

  • Client comfort

Not every adjustable headrest will fit into each kind of massage table. Make sure that the adjustable headrest you choose will fit into your table. Some of the most common types include:

  • Standard headrest

  • Basic adjustable headrest

  • Quick lock adjustable headrest

  • Curve headrest

Quality Materials and Design for Client Comfort

Your massage table won't help your business if it's made from low-quality materials that start to break down within a few months of purchasing it. High-density foam, quality wood, and soft fabrics can make a huge difference in your table's comfort level. 

Other features that can enhance client comfort include:

  • Height adjustability

  • Adjustable headrests 

  • Shelf storage 

  • High load capacity 

Your massage table is one of the first things your clients encounter before their massage. You want to make a great first impression by choosing a high-quality massage table. Positively influence the type of experience they have.
