There are mainly three types of massage tables: portable, stationary and electric lift massage tables.
Portable massage tables are robust, compact and light in weight. These tables are useful for the therapists who have their own home salons or beauty spas. Portable message tables are reasonably priced and you can easily move them from one place to another.
Stationary massage tables are quite pricey and stronger as compared to portable massage tables. Stationary massage tables are suitable for therapists who do not move very often from their place. Hence these tables are perfect for fixed places like in medical spas or treatment salons.
Electric massage tables are user-friendly massage tables. These tables have push buttons on them which allows the therapist to adjust the message table according to his/her requirement.
Electric massage tables work on electric lift mechanism.
