Some of the best massage tables on the market are cheaper tables, not costing more than a few hundred dollars. But, with other massage therapy supplies to purchase, should you buy a discount table?
You should first decide what you are looking for in a table. What features are most important? What therapy services will you provide with your table?
Student packages are great deals! They often include massage therapy supplies that you really need like face rest covers, and a carrying case to protect your table. Plus, usually free shipping is offered. If you are searching for a cheap table for home use, student packages are excellent choices.
Portable tables give you the convenience of moving your table from place to place. They are perfect if you have a home spa or for a professional therapist who offers in-home massage services.
Stationary tables are great for a home spa or a therapist who offers professional massage in one specific location, with no desire to offer in-home massage services. These also tend to be very durable and sturdy.
Electric tables allow the therapist to adjust the height of the table by electrical switches that are handheld or with foot remotes. They are perfect for elderly or handicapped clients.
