What are static massage tables and how do they differ from portable ones?

Just as not all treatments and not all clients are the same – not all massage tables are the same. The distinction bewteen static and portable massage tables may seem fairly obvious however; just to clear things up we’re going to  in to some granular detail and highlight some key differences.

What are portable massage tables?

Portable massage tables are massage tables that can be folded, carried, and transported from one place to another. They are usually made of lightweight materials, such as aluminium or wood, and have hinges, locks, handles, and wheels for easy folding and moving. They are ideal for mobile massage therapists who travel to their clients’ homes, offices, hotels, or events, or for massage therapists who work in different locations or venues.

Portable massage tables have some advantages over static massage tables, such as:

  • They are more affordable and cost-effective than static massage tables
  • They are more versatile and adaptable than static massage tables
  • They are easier to store and save space than static massage tables

However, portable massage tables also have some disadvantages over static massage tables, such as:

  • They are less stable and sturdy than static massage tables
  • They can be less comfortable and ergonomic than static massage tables
  • They require more maintenance and care than static massage tables

What are static massage tables?

Static massage tables are tables that are designed to be stationary (albeit they can be shifted around in a treatment room) unlike portable massage tables that can be folded and moved around. They are usually made of heavy-duty materials, such as steel or wood, and have solid bases, legs, frames, and tops. They are ideal for stationary massage therapists who work in their own clinics, spas, salons, or studios, or for massage therapists who want to create a permanent and professional setting for their clients.

Static massage tables have some advantages over portable massage tables, such as:

  • They are more stable and sturdy than portable massage tables
  • They can be even more luxiourious than portable massage tables
  • They can offer a greater range of positions for the client
  • They typically offer more functionality and features than portable massage tables

However, static massage tables also have some disadvantages over portable massage tables, such as:

  • They are more expensive and less cost-effective than portable massage tables
  • They are less versatile than portable massage tables
  • They take up more space and are harder to store than portable massage tables

How do static massage tables differ from portable ones?

Static massage tables differ from portable ones in several aspects, such as:

  • Size: Static massage tables tend to be larger and wider than portable ones. They are typically not less than 28″ wide while some portable tables can be around 25″ wide. The size of a static table can vary depending on the model and the manufacturer.
  • Weight: Static massage tables tend to be heavier and bulkier than portable ones. The average weight of a static table is 45-50kg, while the average weight of a portable one is around 12-16kg. The weight of a static table can vary depending on the material and the design.
  • Padding: Static massage tables tend to have thicker and denser padding than portable ones. The padding of a static table is usually made of high-density foam or memory foam that can provide more cushioning and support for the client’s body. The thickness of the padding can range from 4 inches to 6 inches. Portable ones tend to have slightly thinner and softer padding than static ones un to 3 inches as a maximum.
  • Upholstery: High quality static massage tables typically always use luxurious PU vinyl rather than PVC which gives them a luxury edge and tends to be more durable and resistant than the upholstery on portable ones.
  • Features: Static massage tables tend to have more features and options than portable ones. Some of the features that a static table can have are:
    • Storage drawers, shelves, or cabinets, which allow the massage therapist to store their tools, supplies, or equipment under or beside the table
    • More options for posisitioning the client.
