I own a spa in town and my massage table was then made of thin sheet of metal. It was broken sometimes last summer when a 180 lbs. lady made a good jump out of it. Then it was scrap.
One of my new employees told me about the burgundy portable massage table by BestMassage available in Amazon.com. I was devastated to see the price! It is too cheap; I thought it was a prank! But then I realized Amazon was serious. I put this aside for days, I really thought that it will easily break considering maybe; it is of low quality that is why it is dirt-cheap. So, I thought.
Nevertheless, I gave up searching for other brands because I can’t afford the price. I ended up purchasing this two fold burgundy portable massage table from Amazon. But you know what? It was awesome! I did not expect the outcome. You see, it arrived within 5 days of my purchase online. It was assembled single-handedly by one of my stay-in employees.
The features and functions were really the same as published
I just can’t believe that the features will be the same as what I have read. I was really hesitant at first in buying this stuff. Look at my list I made to analyze this massage table; I could use these as references if I decide to purchase one again.
- The 2 inch padding is great; it was so soft, together with the hardwood frame made from birch wood.
- The table length is just fine at 72 inches, without the face cradle, and 27 inches wide, just enough for our bulky costumers.
- I just thought its 450 lbs. capacity is a hoax, but it could carry one of my heaviest clients.
- At 39 lbs. net weight, it could be easily transferred from one room to another in just a matter of minutes. Truly portable.
- All components could all be utilized and not just added parts.
- The upholstery is oil and water-proof and it does not moist or emit bad odor even when my clients sweat on it. I understand it is made from PU leather, not the synthetic PVC type.
- There are numerous free accessories that come with the package, such as adjustable headrest, face pillow, hanging arm shelf, one pair of hand rest and a deluxe carrying case.
- Priced below $100, I just got really fooled by the low price of this product: its price is demeaning but highly qualified for almost great craftsmanship.
There are some issues, though
Some great works really just can be perfected. There are some setbacks I have also listed:
- The bolts, I felt are just too small for the holes, there are creaking sounds whenever a hard massage is being done. We lubricated and tightened the bolts and it somewhat ease some sounds. One of my employees, who understands some knowledge about nuts and bolts, plan to replace them. We’ll see.
- The height range is just 26 to 36 inches. Maybe there are some ways to be done to increase the height up to at least 38 inches. By then it would be perfect. We have massage assistants that are so tall, they have to bend steeply when doing their job.
What is our final say about this product?
The BestMassage two fold burgundy portable massage table is quite amazing. Its low price could deceive anyone for low quality, and the issues are minor compared to high priced brand. This is really highly recommended especially to novice users who want to experience the elegance of fine massage comfort and style.
