Massage table review – for the sake of your clients

As I wrote in my post “Useful reiki tools and supplies“, massage table is something that would be useful if you are a reiki practitioner, although it is not an absolute necessity. In order to offer a good reiki session, not only should your client be comfortable, but you should also be able to sit comfortably for 60-90 minutes.

In this post, I will review some of the massage tables available in the market and make some recommendations. But before I start, I want to highlight 3 things you should bear in mind when choosing a good massage table.

  1. If you are opting for a portable, fold-able massage table, find one that it is light enough to carry, but also sturdy enough to withstand heavy clients. Legs of the table should also be adjustable, so that you can sit or stand comfortably during the session.
  2. Find a massage table with a removable headrest which has adjustable angles, rather than just a hole on the table, for more comfort.
  3. It should have an arm rest when the client is facing down. Again, this is not an absolute requirement, but it just adds to the comfort level.

  1. Oh, very cool! I guess massage table requirements for reiki are a bit different than for massage, because it is mostly static vs. dynamic work.

    I was a massage therapist for 15 years, and worked with some very large clients. I quickly found I needed a table higher weight capacity than most. even the average sized and small people loved my table because they felt more supported than on normally-sized ones. So that might be something to consider for those shopping for tables, especially because for reiki you want clients to be able to relax completely. this requirement is harder to fulfill in portable tables than hydraulic ones, but it can be done!

    • Hi Penelope

      Thanks for your comment! I totally agree about the sturdiness of the table to cater to large clients. There’s the question of sturdiness vs. portability if you need to do a lot of house visits. I’ll do a separate post/review on hydraulic tables for salons. Which massage table do you use?
