NRG Premium Aluminum Headrest Face Cradle W/ Aromatherapy Arm
When I was in massage therapy school we worked with face rests that not only tilt to any angle they also adjust vertically. I never encountered a face rest that didn't' also adjust vertically and didn't know they were special or 'deluxe'. In my opinion there shouldn't even exist a face rest that doesn't do both. It's totally flat and goes below the table so your face has to dip below the table surface to be in it and it doesn't matter what angle you put it at it is still messing up the neck and back alignment. Maybe this is ok for small clients but for average size people and especially women it's very uncomfortable. I'll be honest I did get extra padding on my table so that might have something to do with it I'm not sure.
Also for the full price it's ridiculous to get this one whereas a 'deluxe' headrest that adjusts both ways is only $4 more. At the sale price it might be reasonable, but as a massage therapist you want to make you clients feel comfortable and this will not do that for them.
As for the aromatherapy arm I'm guessing it's the really cheap plastic thing that hangs down in my clients face that doesn't hold any weight. You can take it off but it's kind of a pain to get back on.
I read some other reviews and saw that this was the new version of the old face rest and it's much more sturdier. I have not experienced the other but by the sound of it this version sounds much better in that respect.
