FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Should I buy a portable or stationary massage table?
If you own a massage salon or spa, a stationary massage table is your best choice. However, many massage therapists have found that providing a mobile service for their clients has numerous marketing and operational benefits. For this reason, they choose portable massage tables for traveling back and forth from clients’ homes or setting up a demo area at local fairs, conventions, and festivals.
Even massage therapists who primarily work at a salon or chiropractor’s office can benefit from the versatility of owning a portable massage table as a backup or mobile option. Since they weigh less than 30 lbs., you can take these portable tables anywhere, and you can rely on the tables’ hardwood or metal frames to be sturdy and durable without sacrificing comfort.
Most importantly, you can receive the same performance quality of a stationary massage table in a portable massage table at a more affordable price. The portable models cost between $200 and $300, while stationary massage tables’ prices range between $500 to $2,000. So, even if you own a spa or salon, it’s a good idea to supplement your stationary spa table with a portable one if you can afford it.
How much weight can a massage table hold?
The industry terms that define the weight capacity of a massage table are working weight and static weight. The working weight includes the weight of the client on the table, the applied pressure, and the side load of the therapist administering the massage. With these specifications in mind, the average working weight for most massage tables is between 250 to 350 pounds. However, you can find massage tables with a working weight of 500 pounds to 800 pounds.
On the other hand, static weight is the amount of weight a massage table can hold in a stationary state. Most spa massage tables can handle up to 2,000 pounds of static weight, provided you distribute the weight evenly.
Why does the working weight capacity of a massage table matter?
Working weight is critically important because it defines the load perimeters that you can safely render therapy without worrying about the table collapsing or breaking. A massage table failure can be a dangerous occurrence for everyone involved. Therefore, the working weight is a significant consideration in choosing massage tables. But it is especially important when accommodating obese and pregnant clients.
How can I make my massage table more comfortable?
One of the most impactful ways of adding more comfortable features to your massage table is to improve the pressure points around your clients’ faces by choosing face rest or headrest options that contain gel or water padding. Also, you can reduce stress around a client’s shoulders by placing a hot towel under their shoulders as they lie in a prone position on the spa table. Along with the added shoulder support, this technique helps relax their muscles.
Often, clients with large bellies or acid reflux are uncomfortable lying in a prone position. You can enhance their therapy experience by positioning pillows under their chests and hips. To fully support your client’s head, raise the headrest until you fully support your client’s body.
What should you look for when buying a massage table?
There are many stationary table packages that feature various styles and qualities. But the essential elements to look for are foam thickness, fabric quality, material composition, adjustability, and positive customer reviews. In addition, you should determine your fundamental needs are compatible with the tables’ fundamentals, including weight capacity, table width, table weight, and shelf life.
