This Massage Table Plants a tree

You're a professional, you strive to offer a remarkable treatment and service to your patients. Word of mouth is paramount to your growing business and everything in your treatment room should work with you in achieving your goals and maintaining your priorities. That's what the Clinic Essentials™ range of treatment couches sets out to assist you in.

Comfort, reliability and functional design are the three tenets of Clinic Essentials™.  The CONTOUR range is very unique in it's functional design.

Your body is curved, your patient's body is curved and now your treatment couch is also curved to work with and compliment the differences between both your bodies 

The best way to describe the shape of the CONTOUR range is that it is like a modified hour-glass shape, similar to the body of a fish. It is wide in the shoulder area of the treatment couch, it starts to gradually taper inwards where the patient's body doesn't require the extra width but helps your body get in closer without bending. The couch then fully narrows where you normally position yourself during treatment and then gradually tapers back out to be wide again in the foot section.

The ergonomic and functional design was created after years of research and development into the most optimal and comfortable positioning for the practitioner without removing comfort from the patient.

The dimensions are 73cms (29 inches) in the shoulder area, gradually tapering to 21cms (24 inches) in the mid section and back out to 29 inches in the foot section.

The length of the Contour Classic treatment couch is 202cms ( 79.5 inches).

One clinic or treatment room may have many different height therapists who perform many different modalities and as mentioned above, the Clinic Essentials™ range wants to work with you in achieving your goals and maintaining your priorities. The height range is generous to allow for many different treatment styles, modalities and therapist heights. The whisper quiet DEWERT German electric motor raises from the minimum height of 52cms to 98cms. 

As you can see, Clinic Essentials™ has you fully covered with the design elements but what about the comfort?

Effective treatment couches need to be comfortable, yet supportive. Not too hard and not too soft. The CONTOUR range has a very comfortable 7cms of semi-firm high density foam. The foam is built up underneath over three layers.

Clinic couches can get used heavily each hour of the day. The upholstery needs to be reliable, hard wearing and long lasting. The PU leather on the CONTOUR range is very strong and hard wearing all the while maintaining a luxurious feel and touch to it.

The comfort of the ergonomically shaped face cushion has to be seen to be believed but we hope the demonstration video helps convey how comfortable and supportive it is. The 9cm face cushion sits on top of a face cradle which you can manually adjust through 45 degrees up and down. Underneath the face cradle is a large and comfortable contour arm shelf which also adjusts backwards and forwards to cater for different body sizes and arm lengths. The face cradle adjusts easily with the patients head rested in it. 

When buying an electric treatment couch make sure you find out what brand the motors are and where they are made. This is a big investment for you and your investment should last you many years. The most common part to fail on electric treatment couches over the long run is the motor and you should avoid any electric couch with Chinese made motors. Clinic Essentials™ uses DEWERT motors Made in Germany. They are the most reliable electric motors in the industry and are plug and play which means the can be easily swapped over without additional specialist work if anything happens to them years down the line.

The DEWERT German whisper quiet motor quickly & smoothly brings the electric couch from the minimum height of 52cms to 98cms. The lower than normal height setting makes it easier for elderly clients and clients with disabilities to get on and off. The low height also makes it a fantastic treatment couch for therapists who work with their body weight and need the height adjusted lower.

You control the motor and height via a simple to use foot pedal which can be positioned anywhere, 360 degrees around the treatment couch so you can actually adjust the couch while treating, if you feel a little bit of height adjustment is appropriate mid-treatment.

The treatment couch has four lockable castor wheels so it can easily be moved by one person to the side of a treatment room when not in use or to another treatment room if needs be.

The CONTOUR range has a very strong steel frame. The couch and motor has a lifting weight of 450lbs during treatments which is 32 stone.

We have taken photos which you can view above of the lowest and highest height of the treatment couch with a 5'9" therapist so you can see how it will measure up against you in real life. This couch is suitable for therapists ranging from any smallest height to a highest height of 6'6" comfortably.

If you would like the same quality, comfort and reliability but would also like extra functionality and a raising back section, have a look at the Contour Multi-lift 3-Section.

Everything you see in the photo and video is included in the price. Electric Treatment Table + Face Cradle + 1 x Ergonomic Face Cushion + Large Arm Shelf  + Electric Foot Pedal + Free Mainland UK Delivery

No set up is needed when it arrives, simply plug in and start using it!

    Nice and simple couch

    As it was a simple design couch I don't have many features to review but the quality is excellent. The foam is very supportive and comofrtable and you can tell from squeazing the leather it is the best. Easy to move from my treatment room to the training room in our clinic with the wheels.

    Good design and stability

    I was an interior designer before I became a physio 11 years ago so I appreciate the aesthetics of things. This has a beautiful shape and looks good in my room. I only have it 3 weeks before I got the invitation to review but I can tell for sure it is a very solid and reliable table. The motor is very quiet and fluid. Padding is far better than any table I have used as a therapist or as a patient myself. If I remember I will be back in a year or so to write an update.

    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.
