Choose the correct size::Choose the correct size: One of the most important choices you need to consider is the size of the portable massage table. It should be wide enough to accommodate a broad range of clients yet narrow enough to ensure good body positioning on your behalf. Make sure you can get close enough to the table so you can pivot at the waist and have your shoulders squared up to the clients hips, with your hands parallel to the clients spine.
PowerPoint Presentation:As a rule of thumb, the most popular and ergonomic choices are table widths of 70cms (28 inches) and 76 centimeters (30 inches). You can get 25" wide massage tables, but you should only choose this width if you are shorter in height and having a wider table will jeopardise your own back over the course of your career. You can also get hour glass shaped massage tables whereby the middle section is narrower for the therapist's benefit of getting in close and the top and bottom ends of the therapy table are normal width so the client will feel comfortable.
