Massage Tables

  1. Pushing Through the Wall

    I have run several marathons over the years and I can tell you at exactly what point I hit the wall: 21.5 miles. If you’ve ever hit that proverbial wall, you know exactly what I’m talking about. There is simply a point in any physical activity (especially intense, strenuous ones) when your body stops performing at max capacity. It says: Hey you! I’m Tired. Do you hear me? We’re done. Sometimes, in my case, it also says: Time for a Margarita! But, alas, that could just be me.

  2. Let’s Talk Warranties!

    I write about massage table quality pretty regularly. I won’t bore you with all of those details – you can look up any one of many blogs I – amongst many others – have written on the subject. Today, I want to address one simple thing: warranties. You see, I’m of the mind that a good warranty is one of the absolute most important qualities your massage table can have. After all, even precision craftsmanship and durable materials can fail. While it is a rare occurrence, I want to know that the company who builds my product will stand behind it. So, let’s explore what makes a really good warranty:

  3. Alternative Massage Music – Wave of the Future

    You’ve probably been hibernating if you haven’t noticed all of the recent buzz about new “alternative” spa treatments. Among these notable treatments are several that include alternative types of music (i.e. pop and heavy metal). To be clear, these styles of music aren’t “alternative” per se (it’s 2012 after all), but they certainly aren’t often associated with massage.

  4. Spring is in the Air!

    Spring is in the air – literally! Tomorrow is the first day of spring. For me, at least, it couldn’t come soon enough. I’ve always loved spring. She brings a healthy dose of “freshness” and rejuvenation to the world around us. She wakes us up, gentle rays warming our very souls. In so very many ways, she serves as a reminder of the immeasurable beauty of life.

  5. Cleaning Your Massage Table – The Nitty-Gritty!

    Cleaning Your Massage Table – The Nitty-Gritty!Has your upholstery been looking a bit drab as of late? Would you like to keep it looking like new? I don’t blame you.

  6. Taking Care of Yourself: Why You Should Care

    I’m going to make today’s blog short and sweet. Why? Because I am sure you already know what I’m going to say. In fact, I suspect that you’ve said it to others before yourself. The crux of the matter: You absolutely need to take care of yourself.

  7. What's Going On? My Table isn't Flat!

    What's Going On? My Table isn't Flat!

    I hear it all the time: My new massage table isn't lying flat! It didn't completely unfold. Is it defective? In a word: No. Well, at least not most of the time. There are, of course, incidents of defective tables out there, but I would argue that in almost all cases, a new table lifting slightly in the center is a result of one of two things: improper opening or a twisted cable.

    Most tables have been in their folded position for quite some time before you unpack and open them. It shouldn't be completely surprising, then, that they might have a propensity to stay in that position. That is why opening Read more

  8. How To Set Up & Use Your Massage Table and Headrest

    As a practicing Massage Therapist, it’s definitely in your best interest to learn how to properly setup and use your massage table. This might sound pretty basic, but consider that if your table’s not working with you, it’s working against you – and obviously not performing to your clients’ expectations in terms of getting the most from their session. Also keep in mind that happy, repeat customers don’t mind referring their friends and co-workers. It’s a win-win situation, and you may just save your aching muscles in the process, too!
