Finding the perfect massage table to fit your needs can seem overwhelming when you first get started in the looking process. Keep your eyes out for high quality tables that offer all the accessories you are looking for. There are portable massage tables as well as tables that are more permanently kept in place. You will also want to look at the current medical news to see if there are any warnings or concerns about the type of table you are hoping to purchase.
At first you might think that the portable table is only good for massage therapists that will be traveling to people’s homes or doing other types of on the go travel work. But the portable table is sometimes needed in a regular office setting. This is especially true if you are sharing your office space with anyone else. Sometimes, smaller hair salons can only offer you one or two days per week in their facility, on the other days, the salon might have a nail specialist or someone else helping with the salon. In this case, it would be your responsibility to move your massage table out of the client’s way.
A stationary table is only good if you will be able to keep that table in the same spot for a long period of time. Stationary tables are like large pieces of furniture. You can move a stationary massage table if necessary, but it will be extremely difficult. This type of table works best in businesses that plan to stay in one location for a long period of time.
Some of the most popular accessories that you will want to include are the facial rest, armrest by the head and armrest by the side. These items help make the massage table more comfortable and give your body an ergonomically correct way of lying down. Accessories should be considered part of your initial purchase, whenever possible, because they will enhance the experience for the patient.
Purchasing supplies online is a great way to save money and time. It is important to understand that the purchase of your massage table might just be your most expensive purchase to date. Be sure to discuss this with your friends and family before you take the big step of purchasing a new table, because they will want to have some say in what you are up to.
