The adjustable ten position back rest offers the comfort that an therapist needs for his/her customer. Its good value for money adds to its benefits. I strongly recommend it as one of the most useful tools.

      2. Which therapies you will be using the table for?As a professional reflexologist the massage table is really vital to have. I am also a qualified assistant physiotherapist therefore I will also use the table for physiotherapy sessions.

      The Portalite Advantage II massage table was the perfect choice for Ben, a mobile Sports Therapist looking for a portable but affordable table.

      1. Why did you choose the Advantage II? The main reasons that I bought the bed are because the reviews on the website were very high. The price was important for me, I wanted something that wasn't too expensive but was good quality. And also the weight as well, I'm a mobile sports therapist so I need something easy to put in and out of my car.

      2. Which therapies you will be using the table for? I use this bed for sports therapy.

      3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? I was recommended Massage Warehouse by my college tutor who purchases a lot of beds and equipment through Massage Warehouse and I would definitely use them again!

      Massage therapist and reflexologist Jo Hall chose the Advantage II for it's portability, simplicity and slim dimensions

      1. Why did you choose the Advantage II? I’ve chosen the Advantage II because it’s a narrow couch and it’s lightweight - it’s only 11.5kg so it’s very portable, it’s easy to the adjust the legs and I’ve been really pleased with it so far. It has a breathe hole that I wanted, and it has a back rest that I wanted too. Being petite, I can use this couch to its full advantage. The quality of the product speaks for itself, I’m really pleased with that!

      2. Which therapies you will be using the table for?The therapies I’m going to be using it for are reflexology and massage. My feedback from clients so far is that it’s very comfortable for massage, and my reflexology clients really enjoy it because they are now elevated in a more comfortable position.

      3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? I chose Massage Warehouse because of their value for money, and the really good delivery service – I chose the next day delivery service, and also the returns policy is very clearly stated.


      The Advantage II massage table was the perfect choice for physiotherapist Jerry from Birmingham...

      1. Why did you choose the Advantage II? I Chose this table having looked on line for an entry level physiotherapy massage tables and was surprised at the lack of quality at Amazon and Ebay. When I stumbled on this site I was impressed with the videos which were informative and the closest thing to seeing the table "at work". For the price the Advantage II is sturdy with an aluminium main frame and easy to adjust and carry due to a fairly light weight. An adjustable backrest is a huge bonus at this price as which allows you more freedom when treating upper and lower extremities.

      2. Which therapies you will be using the table for? The table will be used for mobile physiotherapy massage.

      3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? I chose Massage Warehouse due to the excellent site and choice of tables with quick feedback to my questions. The table took a little time to arrive but I was updated as to the issues and the expected time of arrival. The table also has a 10 yr warranty which is handy! Looking forward to using it.


      Laura from Papa Physio opted for an Advantage II massage table for her portable physiotherapy practice

      1. Why did you choose the Advantage II? I bought the Advantage II because it’s nice and lightweight; it’s easy to transport from your car to patient’s homes and easily fits into the boot - it’s easily accessible to get out of the boot. It has really good lock in legs so it’s easy for you to get it in position and to be able to get it up to standing. It’s got an adjustable height on the legs so it’s more ergonomic for you. The feedback I’ve had from patients - they say it’s very comfortable, even with patients having treatments carried out for 45 minutes. Even they say it’s lovely and comfortable, not a problem at all. They also can see how much lighter weight this plinth is when I’m bringing the plinth into their home and taking it away. All round, we’re all very happy and I definitely recommend the Advantage II plinth!

      2. Which therapies you will be using the table for?Treatments I carry out are for patients in their own homes: the elderly, patients with long term problems, or people who are unable to get into the car and come up into my clinic.

      3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? Why I chose Massage Warehouse: I found that their website was really easy to use with a whole list of different massage plinths at different prices, and I found this one which is nice and lightweight - It’s only 11.5kg in weight and it was a reasonable price as well!

      Lefta little disappointed

      Bought the couch a couple months back to train with used max 30 times and the upholstery started to tear. I cover my couch and like to think I take good care of it. Disappointed that the product damage does not come under grantee. I would not buy another couch from here unfortunately I think this shows the quality is poor.

      Does not have a long life

      This is the second time I have purchased this bed. I first purchased it 3 years ago but it only lasted 1.5 years as a patient fell through the middle where the folding crease is because the screws had come loose without me knowing and the cabling under the bed had also broken. I then purchased this bed a second time as I was left without a treatment bed. Whilst it is the cheapest lightweight portable bed, it does not have a long life span as another 1.5 years later since I ordered this bed for the second time, the cables under the bed have come loose again and I do not want to risk a patient falling through the bed again.

      Great value massage bed, but bad design on closing clasp with the back rest

      Great bed, very comfortable ad sterdy. The only thing that stops it getting 5 * is the bad design on the locking clasp. It won't line up without having to open up the back rest and putting your hand through to line up. You then can't securely Velcro the back rest closed. I have read other reviews about this. Having said that it's still a great bed and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and massage warehouse.

      Massage Table Size Guide

      Massage tables comes in many different shapes and size. It can be confusing for you, the customer, to choose the right one but we are here to help!

      A lot of customers call us up after they have bought the wrong size massage table elsewhere and we would like to help you avoid this mistake. It normally goes something like this; they like the look of a picture of a massage table on a website, they like the low price and then they check the carrying weight is ok. If the carrying weight fits their needs they click add to cart and the new massage table turns up at their doorstep in a few days. They unfortunately assume all massage tables are pretty much the same width and size.

      The standard size of a massage table is 28 inches wide (71cms) and 73 inches (185cms) long. One of the reasons many "lightweight" budget massage tables are so cheap is because

      1.  They are smaller in size (normally around 61cms wide) and as such have less materials
      2. They are sold by specialist retailers who also sell anything else they can import and turn a profit on. As such they just buy the cheapest massage tables they can find in China. They go for smaller sizes as they are cheaper.

      Make sure the massage table is the right size for you and your clients as the narrow massage tables at 61cms can be very uncomfortable for anyone who isn't petite and many clients cannot relax with their shoulders and arms unsupported.

       

      The Width of the Massage Table:

      Almost all therapists choose the standard 28 inch wide massage table. All our massage tables are the same length so it is only the width and shape our customers need to decide on.

      Your massage table should be wide enough to cater for the wide variety of shapes and sizes of your clients. It needs to be wide enough to comfortably accommodate your treatment style, while being narrow enough to ensure you don’t have to strain your own back during treatments.

      Each therapist's postural training and ability is different, so only you will know what massage table width you can handle. We have spoken to therapists who are five feet tall and get the wider 30 inch massage tables, and we speak to six foot therapists who have back problems and go for a 25 inch wide massage table. Everyone is different.

      Generally speaking, if you are of smaller stature, you may do better with one of the narrower 25-inch massage tables. If you're quite tall, or are particularly keen to offer your clients a very spacious experience, a 30-inch massage table might be more suitable.

      If you are in doubt, see if you can go into your local training college and see whether the massage tables there suit you. However, there is another way to get a feel for what will work of you don’t have access to a couch when you are deciding:

      Cut out a piece of cardboard to the dimensions of both sizes you are deciding between. Put it on top of the kitchen table and lean over it. Visualise a client lying there, and see which width will suit you and your client best.

      measuring the width of a massage table


      Make sure you can get close enough to the table that you can pivot at the waist and have your shoulders squared to the clients hips, with your hands parallel to the clients' spine. Working in this position will ensure an injury-free career, so it's an important factor in your decision.

      The most popular massage table widths are 28 and 30 inches. We sell 25-inch massage tables but you should really only choose this width if you are shorter in height and having a wider massage table might put your own back at risk over the course of your career.

      You can also choose the 25-inch if you want to have the lightest massage table possible. By reducing the width of the massage table, the weight is also reduced. Now, this can mean a trade-off of some client comfort, but this trade is often worthwhile if you are a fully mobile therapist and use public transport frequently, where saving a kilogram or two will make a difference to you over time.

       

      The Height Of the Massage Table

      Nowadays, almost all portable massage tables come with height adjustable legs. Whichever massage table you choose should come with a large height range to accommodate you, and to cater for a broad range of therapies.

      A common height range of massage tables is between 60 to 80cm, and this height range should cater for everyone. To check which height you need your massage table to be at follow this rule of thumb:

      1. Stand up straight with your hands by your sides. Clench your fists.
      2. Measure the distance between the floor and your knuckles
      3. This distance should equal the height of your massage table.
      4. Add a few inches in height to allow for the body of the patient on the massage table.

      The height of a massage table is usually only adjusted when different therapists are using the same massage table, or if you have a client that is outside the average size you normally treat. So for example, if someone with a lot of body depth comes for a treatment after an average size person, you may need to adjust the height a notch or two.

      You should be able to adjust the height of a massage table in just 2-3 minutes. Even though you mightn't adjust the height very often, the faster the better when you do have to!

      There are 2 types of height adjustment mechanisms found on modern massage tables.

      1) Twisting knobs (found only on wooden massage tables):

      If you are working with a wooden massage table, it is better to have two knobs on each of the four legs for greater strength and reliability. When buying online, make sure to check how many knobs are on the legs. Cheap massage tables often only have one knob, and when you raise the legs to the highest heights they are less stable and have been known to snap.

      2) Telescopic push-buttons (found only on aluminium massage tables):

      The mechanism to adjust the height of an aluminium massage table is much the same as the push-button method on aluminium crutches. It only takes a few seconds to adjust each leg, and the mechanism is very reliable. Check out the video to see how it’s done.

       

      Massage Table Shape:

      The following are the different shapes of massage tables on the market.

      1. Rectangle shaped with square corners 

      This is the traditional shape of a massage table and the one you are probably familiar with seeing. Our Combi-lite 3 in 1 and Affinity Portaflex are shaped like this.

      2. Rectangle shaped with rounded corners

      Same as no 1 above in every way except the corners are rounded. Does not affect function in any way, just a different design/look.

       

      3. Hour glass shaped with gradual gradient 

      A fabulous massage table innovation in recent years, which solves a lot of the problems around choosing the correct width is the hourglass shaped massage table.


      This style of massage table is wider at the ends, and tapers somewhat at the middle. This provide a spacious and comfortable experience for your client (as the shoulder and feet area are 30 inches wide) without compromising your own posture and health, as the middle of the couch where you lean over is a much narrower 26 inches wide.Having recently upgraded to one of these hourglass massage tables myself, I can vouch that my working days are much more comfortable, and many of my clients have commented on the extra comfort from the wider shoulder area.

       

      4. Hour glass shaped with sharp gradient
      Same as point above but instead of the it gradually going from wide to narrow, the massage table changes quickly from normal width to narrow width so people of very short stature can get in close.
      5. Oval Shaped

       The name says it all! There are no corners on the massage table. Therapists normally choose this for one of two reasons. They simply like the look of this massage table and it is aesthetically more pleasing in their treatment room and/or they find it easier to move around the massage table during the treatment without having to side step the corners. This is particularly handy when space is limited in your treatment room.
