Owing to the fact that there are so many massage tables in the market, it is highly advised that you first consider your requirements before setting out to shop for one.
Factors to consider before buying the Best Portable Massage Table
-Price – The cost of the table is most likely to inform your choice of a portable table to buy. Depending on your budget, you can find massage tables that range from between $80 and $4,000. When shopping around, be careful not to settle for poor quality in the pursuit of low cost massage tables.
-Portable or fixed- Settle for a fixed table if you will not be doing out-calls, otherwise a portable table is ideal for those who do out calls. Portable tables are advantageous because they can be folded, moved around and they save space and this cannot be said of fixed tables which are basically immovable.
-The height and width of the best portable massage table- Ensure that you choose a table with the right width and height. Massage tables come in widths that range between 28 to 35 inches and heights that range between 20 to 36 inches. As a rule of thumb, the height of table you choose should fall close to your hip joint. Also, use your height to determine the width of the table that is ideal for you. For example, if your height is 5’4’’ or less, ensures that you buy a table that is not wider than 29 inches and for those who are 5’10”and above, they should go for a table width of between 28 and 33 inches.
-Weight- This consideration is important especially if you are getting a portable massage table. It is commonplace to find portable massage tables for sale that weigh anywhere between 22 and 30 pounds. The weight of the portable table is greatly influenced by its size and the material it has been made from. Settle for a light massage table especially if you will be doing out-calls.
-Thickness of the padding of the best portable massage table- Perhaps this is one of the most important considerations when looking for a portable massage table to buy. The thickness of the padding will not only determine the longevity of your massage table but also determine your clients’ comfort. You wouldn’t want your clients to feel as if they are lying on a plank of plywood would you? Ensure that the padding is thick enough so that your clients can relax on a soft and comfortable mattress as you massage away their stress.
