How do i choose a massage table?

Author: admin1  //  Category: massage table

So i am a Massage Therapy student looking to buy my first table, and looking at what’s out there leaves me nothing but confused. So many companies, offering similar stats on their tables.
But i guess i want to know if there are some professionals out there who can recommend a certain name, or perhaps a particular model, that is decent in quality, but still will not cost me an arm and a leg.

look for a couple of items and the first is weight – I a big, tall man so i can handle a table heavier than most might like but you need to be able to handle a bulky table easily without hurting yourself.

Next look at material, I prefer wood rather than metal. Mine is beech wood.

The cover material should be oil and waterproof – PU Leather is a good choice.

Size: if you are small you must keep in mind the area you have to reach out and over so buy something that works for your body. The second issue is that many clients are bigger than we might prefer so you table must be large enough and strong enough to handle them safely. I would look for at least 350 pound limit for working load.

Last ease of setup. While all are similar some are harder than others to put up and take down. Look at all those you can and if friends get one look it over and see how easy it is to use.

When you find some brands you like don’t be shy about using a place like ebay to save some money.

I will avoid mentioning brands here but you can email me if you want to know more about mine
