There’s no such thing as the perfect massage table–there’s only the best massage table for you and your clients’ needs. Spending the time to understand all your options and find the best fit for your situation can save you from ending up with a table that only serves its purpose instead of helping you advance your career.
In a recently published article entitled, “How to Choose the Best Massage Table for You and Your Clients,” author and expert, Ivy Hultquist, writes:
“A massage table is one of the biggest investments you will make in your massage business. This purchase is not given the thought it deserves, especially by those new to the field,” adding that a massage table is a tool. “It affects your client’s comfort and your body mechanics, two very important things. This purchase needs thought and research,” she writes.
You need to consider your work/modality, future plans, office space, clients and budget.
“A table that is perfect for you is not going to be perfect for your classmate and their clients.
Let’s learn a little bit more about you, your business and your clients.”
Some tables offer extras like internal heating and tilt tops. All these things add weight, but also add to the experience and flexibility of your table.
If you want to offer Shiatsu massage, you’ll want to make sure your table comes with Shiatsu release cables that allow your table to lay flat on the floor. Make a list of your priorities and see which table hits your most important ones.
