  1. Hi Sinead
    This is a great post about different massage table types and what to consider. As someone who go for massage few times a year, I have lied down on comfortable massage tables and not-so-comfy ones too. I think the massage therapists themselves should use it themselves before letting their clients lie on it!!
    I am also a reiki therapist and have a portable one, and so far all my clients have said that it is comfortable, but if I decide to get a new one, I’ll be sure to revisit your site for ideas and inspiration!

    1. Thank you Ayako for your comment, Yes there are a lot of tables on the market and It can be difficult to choose the right one and there are great offers now. The therapists should lie on a few tables first and see which are the most comfortable, just like you would do when buying your own bed. It’s great to get a massage when the massage table is comfortable after all clients are there ‘paying’ to relax and be comfortable for an hour or so. I feel as a therapist, It is our duty to insure client comfort with your own comfort in mind too. It leads to an overall better working environment.
