FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I look for in a massage table package?
When comparing massage table packages, look for things you know you need and would otherwise have to buy separately. It is very tempting to get a package deal that includes as many products as possible because those usually guarantee the best overall prices, but if you do not need some of the items included in the package it will not help your budget in the end. Note that most portable massage table packages also have upgraded versions and it might be a better idea to invest in a massage table that comes with thicker foam and rounded corners if you intend to use it for a long time and offer clients as much comfort as possible. Cheaper options are still a good choice for schools and students, of course.
Do massage tables come with any accessories at all?
Stationary massage tables tend to come without any accessories, but higher-value models usually have embedded storage and warming drawers. Table options like breast recesses, prenatal tummy holes, padding, and manicure side arms must be ordered at the time of table purchase, whereas massage table accessories like neck rolls, footrests, headrests, and table extenders can be bought separately at any time. Massage table packages are also available and they usually include a face cradle with a pillow and an armrest shelf. Portable massage table packages, on the other hand, are way more common and they are the best way to save money on massage equipment.
How can I save the most money when shopping for a new massage table?
If you represent a salon, spa, or massage school and need to purchase several units, contact the Corporate Sales team at MassageWarehouse.com and ask for the best offer on wholesale massage tables. This is a great way to consolidate suppliers and save by fulfilling all your massage supply and equipment needs in one place. Massage Warehouse also offers credit to qualifying institutions and businesses, while massage schools and students can benefit from professional-grade product samples and goodie bags along with their new discount massage tables. If you only need to buy one table, you can save up on accessories by opting for massage table packages, like the NRG® Massage Essentials Package which consists of a portable massage table, a bottle of massage lotion, and a flannel sheet set made up of a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and a crescent cover in your choice of colors.
Which massage equipment manufacturers offer the most options?
Earthlite® and Oakworks® are great brands of stationary massage tables and they have a lot of models available, but when it comes to package deals, nothing beats the variety offered by Living Earth Crafts®. Portable massage table packages are considerably more convenient and the best brands that cater to all needs are NRG® and Master Massage Equipment. Some of the most popular massage table packages are NRG® Karma Portable Massage Table and Hot Towel Cabinet Kit (massage table, mini hot towel cabinet, fleece pad set, microfiber sheet set), NRG® Just Give Me Equipment Package (massage table, massage chair, rolling stool, round bolster, massage table sheet set), and NRG® "Have A Seat On Us" Plus Package (massage table, massage chair, massage table warmer, lightweight transport cart, massage table sheet set).
Which massage table accessories must I have to start my business?
If you only have a basic massage table to start with, you will also need massage table coverings, bolsters, and headrests, at a minimum. To provide clients of all sizes with the most comfortable experience possible, consider getting table extenders for arms and legs, a massage table warmer, neck support pillows, and a full set of body positioning cushions. Don't forget about spa towels, disposable face cradle covers, massage oils and lotions, and massage tools. Also, see if you can diversify your practice to include hot and cold therapy and Thai massage — they are important pluses for many clients.
Will I need a massage chair and a massage table?
Based on what your clients prefer and/or the weight you are comfortable carrying around, you can buy a portable massage chair, a portable massage table, or an advantageous package that includes both — NRG® has several portable massage table packages that include massage chairs and high-quality linens in your color of choice, such as "Have A Seat On Us" Plus or "Just Give Me Equipment".
