EARTHWORKS COMFORT FLAT

Earthworks

Size Guide


This Massage Table Plants a treeThe Earthworks Comfort Flat PROFESSIONAL GRADE massage table lives up to its name, with extra thick high density foam, it's a very comfortable massage table for the client but also for the therapist as the table has a slight contour from top to bottom allowing your body to hug the table a little more and helps with the flow of your movement. 

Hands down, this style of massage table which is also available on the Earthworks Comfort Liftback and Earthworks Spirit models is the best style of massage table on the market
for offering the client maximum comfort while making sure you, the therapist, can still lean fully over the lumbar area. The table is designed to be wider in the client's shoulder and foot area but narrower in the waist area so you can still have easy access.

 Norman from Gloucester showing us how happy he is with his Earthworks Comfort Flat!

1. Why did you choose the Earthworks Comfort Flat?  I chose it because I was looking for a wide, wooden table with good padding and height extension.

2. Which therapies will you be using the table for?  I will be using it for Swedish Massage initially.

3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse?  Because they had a great range of high quality massage tables and free next day delivery!

 


This is Seth with his Earthworks Comfort I massage table that he uses for general and sports massage in the Sheffield area.

1. Why did you choose the Earthworks Comfort Liftback table?I have chosen the Earthworks Comfort I for a few reasons. The first one was that the massage table appeared to be extremely sturdy. Where I have clients of different shapes and sizes and wanted it to be something that was going to last years and years to come. The other thing was that it looked extremely comfortable. A comfortable table makes a happy client and that was really important to me and when I learned about the multiple memory foam layers, that was really intriguing and I felt that it would be ideal for what I will be using it for.  

2. Which therapies you will be using the table for? For me primarily, I will be using the table for local and domestic massage therapy throughout Sheffield and some sports massage therapy as well.

3. Why did you choose to shop with Massage Warehouse? I chose Massage Warehouse for a few main reasons. The first one was that it was really easy to navigate throughout the website to understand the exact type of massage table that I will be needing. I was able to get some real great feedback from the customer services there to make sure I was choosing the right thing. It is an investment I am really happy I made so far.

Smart and Professional Looking Table

This table is very comfortable and looks great too. It's quick to put up and take down and easy enough to carry in the carry case it comes with. So far I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Comfort and ease

I love this table, it is so comfortable. Even my larger clients feel comfy on it, which is a rarity. The lovely thick foam is great and the frame feels solid but light, so it’s possible to carry short distances. The curved sides make it easy to get close to the client, which I love. I used one of these while training and am so stoked to finally have my own! Can’t recommend highly enough.

Great ergonamically designed and comfy portable bed.

Bought this bed a couple of years ago for giving private massage to friends. It is very comfortable and firm which has been commented on favourably many times without prompting. It is well built and sturdy. It is not the lightest bed on the market, (18kg I believe) however comes with a good strong carrying case with shoulder strap so can be carried up stairs reasonably well without toomuch hassle. This may prove more difficult for people under 5' 4" tall. The curved edges on the corners combined with concave shaping in the middle make for more comfortable use. Legs are sturdy and easily adjusted.
Overall for money, this is an excellent professional bed which clients will love and the ergonamic shape helps prevent back ache. I use it combined with using Birdsong womens blend massage wax and have had very complimentry feedback even form professionally qualified masseuse.
It sets up once out of zipped bag in around 1 minute including fitting adjustable head rest and placing towels on base. Over-centering catches are not overly strong and may fail if used extensively, however this is only a very minor issue and could be replaced if necessary.
Purchased in beige/cream colour which is neutral and calming.

Affordable luxury

I am really pleased with this massage table. Lower cost than many of the other deluxe models and it is excellent value for money. Super comfortable and easy to use. Plus not too heavy to carry. Highly recommend.

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.
