All About Stationary Massage Tables (& Some Electric Ones)

Stationary Massage Table

For the clinics and spas/medi-spas, a stationary massage table is often the go-to option given they do not need to move around much, if at all. 

Most have additional storage options underneath the table and with stationary massage tables, there are even electric ones that provide even more convenience. We're going to look at some of the best options both have got to offer today.

Just like how we divide the portable ones into aluminium and wooden massage table, we can divide stationary massage tables into two types as well:- (i) manual, and (ii) electric.

By this, we mean the adjustment method of the table's height.

The 5 Best Stationary Massage Table Review

MT Massage

The editors at Masseuse Talk here unanimously chose the MT Harvey Treatment Stationary Massage Table as their best massage table option if they are to pick a stationary massage table. 

One of the most durable, it is also a light massage table and it has very firm foam padding upholstery. 

Weighing just 60 pounds, it has the capability of sustaining up to 1,500 lbs. Pretty amazing huh?

To give you perspective, the average stationary massage table weighs about 100-120 pounds. The average working weight capacity? 500 -700 lbs. 

On top of all that, its height can be adjusted and it comes with 5 year guarantee.

Master Massage Montclair Stationary Massage Table

Being the massage table brand that has released a heated massage table, naturally, its take on a stationary massage table does not disappoint.

We’re talking about the Montclair from Master Massage, a company regarded by many to be one of the best massage table brand in the world.

The Montclair is one wide massage table. At 31", it is one of the widest out of all our recommended massage table reviews so it is ideal for the bigger-sized clients. 

As you can see, the table has an elevation lift back design. This allows professionals to perform any duties in virtually any position be it facials, massages, acupuncture, reflexology or tattoos.

It also comes with a set of side armrests that can be detached and reinstalled according to requirement. The brand's patented ergonomic face cradle can fit all shapes and sizes. Likewise, the face pillow is also patented - it is made with a kind of temperature-sensitive memory foam that will interact with a client's contours.

Speaking of memory foam, the table itself is filled with 3.5" thick cushion of the same material. It is upholstered with a PU oil and water resistant material that is CFC free and is protected with a 5-year guarantee

The whole table is of a mahogany hardwood frame and legs that are protected by a rich, high gloss Dura Seal finish. There is an open storage shelf provided at the bottom to let you (and your clients) keep all the essentials.

Overall, if you have a clientele base that leans towards the bigger side, we highly recommend this Master Massage table for its durability and extra size.

Best Massage

A stationary massage table does not always have to be very expensive. 

Comparable to that of a travel massage table, the Best Massage Stationary Massage Bed is the best massage table option if you're looking for a more affordable version. 

Instead of a wooden frame, this one here is predominantly made of heavy duty iron frame and precision-crafted with beech hardwood. Such a combination gives it the durability, but without the heavy weight.

There are a few things that we like about this Best Massage massage table, one of them being its thick legs. It adds to the solid state construction and gives stability that is expected by professional therapists. Another aspect is its impressive cushion padding - this one here is 4 inches thick. 

Having said that, it does have a lower working weight capacity compared to the rest. With a maximum of 450lbs, it probably may not be ideal for those with a bigger and heavier clientele.

Also, the table height is fixed and non-adjustable and we can see how this can be a problem for some. 

Nevertheless, the Best Massage Stationary Massage Bed is one of the easiest to install. We also really like how it does not have any offensive smell, unlike some other synthetic materials.

The simple design with ample storage space underneath makes it a good choice for professional massage therapy and the likes. For an affordable stationary massage table, we highly recommend this option.

Health Line

Looking for an adjustable massage table? The Health Line Stationary Professional 3-Section Tilt Adjustable Massage Table sure is a versatile one.

As you may see from its name, this wooden massage table can be tilted 3 ways. This, inherently becomes one of its biggest selling point. 

There are not many massage tables that can be tilted at the first place. However, even for those that can, it is usually half way only to make do as a back rest. 

This Health Line massage table though, is adjustable 3 sections for different postures. Even the middle part can be adjusted!

The backrest allows for a 0~40° different angle adjustment while the lower 2 sections are adjustable in 7 levels. This is where the Health Line stood out to us. 

It is one table that is able to truly enhance the effects of massage therapy. Customers who have blood circulation problems in the lower limbs get better lower body circulation when they lie down at the desired angle.

Earthlite Sedona

Last but not least, we have the Sedona Stationary Massage Table from Earthlite

If you're familiar with our site, you will know that Earthlite is one of the most reputable massage table brands in the industry trusted by many professional massage therapists. 

Solid is probably what most have to say about the Sedona. Fully made in the USA from handcrafted, hardwood maple sourced from managed North American forests, this wooden massage table is all about superior strength. It can hold up to an amazing 4,000 lbs - that is more than some automobiles. 

The height of the table can be manually adjusted from 24" - 33" with double knobs firmly securing the legs in place. It is hand upholstered with 3" plush of premium Pro-Plush Deluxe triple density cushioning and Natursoft - the brand's proprietary oil and water resistant eco-fabric. 

earthlite shelf options

You may also notice that this is a tilt top massage table. Its biggest appeal though, lies in the 3 bases, 3 tops options.

You see, the Sedona is available in a trestle, shelf or cabinet base. They can all be combined with a flat, manual tilt or pneumatic salon top.

The 5 Best Electric Massage Table Review

Let's now look at stationary massage tables that can be operated electronically.

Instead of using hydraulic / pneumatic technology to raise your table up (or down), these ones are controlled electronically for maximum convenience.

Do note that they are considerably more expensive than manual stationary massage tables though. Nevertheless, there are some affordable options.

Earthlite Ellora

Out of all, we like the Earthlite Ellora Electric Massage Table most. In our opinion, it is one of the best electric massage table in the market.

Offering a range of sizing, you can choose between a width of 28", 30" and 32" depending on your needs. All comes in the same length of 73".

The Ellora is fully made in the USA with components sourced globally. It has been the go-to choice for busy day spas for their treatment rooms and tattoo studios for over 20 years. 

There are many amazing things to rave about this electric massage table but the most prominent has to be its whisper-quiet, hands-free lift adjustments. One that allows you to lift a heavy duty 600lb capacity controllable via a convenient foot pedal.

Another will be the ADA-compliant height adjustment range of 18” to 37” which we think is the winning feature of this automatic massage table.

Electric Lift Massage Table

Another highly rated electric massage table is the Spa Luxe Electric Lift Massage Table

This one here comes with a face rest, arm shelf and flexed side arms that are all fully adjustable.

If you've noticed, the Ellora doesn't come with any of these accessories. So even though the Spa Luxe may be slightly more expensive, we think it is worth the extra money paid. 

This stationary massage table is not one of those electric massage tables that just go up and down. Aside from height, it can also have its backrest and leg rest adjusted so you can truly customize an ideal position that suits each client. 

Compared to the Ellora, it has a larger height range adjustment of 17"-39". That allows for more flexibility for the therapists.

Likewise, there is a foot pedal for you to control everything. The motor is also extra quiet, making virtually no noise during adjustments.

Overall, the Spa Luxe Electric Lift Massage Table is definitely one to consider if you are looking for a high-end massage table that does not break the bank. Comes with heavy duty polypropylene wheels for easy transportation, you can be sure this electric massage table will provide sturdy support for years. 


Coming third on the list is this DIR Facial Beauty Bed. As you can probably tell from its name, this is not limited to just massage therapy. 

Though it may look like a chair, it can be adjusted completely flat as a massage table. Different from the above two models though, is that this one here has dual electro-hydraulic motors.

What this entails is that you get to control the height adjustment and reclining backrest separately. This is thanks to having motors that are completely independent of each other for these parts. 

Both hand and foot remote are included for height (25"-35") and backrest adjustment, whereas the leg rest can be adjusted manually into multiple positions. Having a hand remote gives better control compared to just the standard foot remote that most electric massage tables come with.

The arm folds back in flat bed position although if desire, all armrest, leg rest extension and headrest are completely removable. Speaking of which, the DIR comes with leg rest extenders to provide added overall length for the taller clients. 

Allow us to also elaborate a bit more on its headrest. It’s actually a dual headrests package - put two on for added height or remove one for a flat surfaced option. Besides being extendable, it also has a breathing hole option for the on-your-stomach procedures. 

Material wise, it uses a high density memory foam with high grade soft vinyl alongside a steel frame structure.

Available in white or black, the DIR Facial Beauty Bed is an ideal choice for salon and spas, tattoo parlours, medical spas and medical offices (podiatry, dentistry etc.). Fully assembled, you can use it straight out of the box.

MT MaxKing Electric Massage Table

Master Massage has released a few electric massage tables but many of our editors here think that the MaxKing Comfort Electric Massage Table is probably the best one out of all.

First of all, it has a working capacity of 1000 lbs

Secondly, this is probably the sturdiest of them all thanks to the heavy duty steel frame employed. If you look close enough, you will see that this is one electric massage table with a wooden base.

Yep, they are European imported beech wood that is protected by rich, hi-gloss Dura Seal finish that the brand is well-known for. Also, there are four heavy duty lockable casters incorporated both for rooting and moving.  

The sleek single column MaxKing maximizes leg and knee room. This gives therapists much needed client access while maintaining exceptional strength and stability. 

For its height adjustment, the electric lift actuator provides smooth and quiet movements with an easy- to-use foot pedal.

Comes with all accessories that any Master Massage table would have, you'll get the brand's famous ergonomic dream adjustable face cradle and memory foam ultra plush face pillow. In particular, the 2 inch high density HARD Foam upholstered top is constructed with a vinyl top for easy clean up.

Manufactured by the massage table brand that released a heated massage table, you know the MaxKing is of a standard and quality that you can trust. What's better, is that a 5-year guarantee is provided!

SierraComfort Standard Electric Lift Massage Table

Last but not least, we have the Sierra Comfort 2-Section Electric Lift Massage Table.

If you are looking for an affordable electric massage table, this is one great option to consider.

The Sierra Comfort is also a lightweight electric massage table at 120 lbs. Despite that, it has a working weight capacity of 500lbs. 

Aside from Spa Luxe, this is the automatic massage table with the biggest height range of 18" - 35". Likewise, it can have its back lifted up to make do as a backrest. You do have to adjust this manually with pneumatic gas lift assist.

Nevertheless, the table's height is adjustable with an electric pedal assist. Like the MaxKing, it also comes with wheel casters with locking mechanism. 

As with most electric massage tables, you will get an adjustable face cradle and face pillow together with the table. In terms of construction, this one here employs a steel frame while the foam deck is made of water and oil resistant PU leather upholstery. 

For an affordable option, we cannot recommend the Sierra Comfort 2-Section Electric Lift Massage Table enough. On top of that, you get a 2-year limited warranty. Definitely one of the best bargain we've ever came across! 

Stationary Massage Table Roundup Review

There are many massage table for sale in the market. However, when it comes to stationary or electric massage table, the choices aren't that many compared to the more lightweight portable massage table options.

Although stationary massage tables are considerably more expensive, they do have advantages over the portable ones:

  • Sturdier;
  • Much more convenient for daily use;
  • Offer more flexibility with multiple angle adjustments.

Most importantly, you get to do these adjustments much more easily and conveniently. Just push a button, as opposed to adjusting every single knob individually for all 4 legs. 

Of course, stationary massage tables are not portable. So at the end of the day, it really depends on what and how you’re using your table for. Get one that fits your purpose, and it will be the best table for you.

Before you go, there are a few massage table accessories you will need to get to protect and preserve your table for longevity. Don't forget to check them out here.

Infinity Riage CS Massage Chair Review

Infinity Riage CS Massage Chair

Not everyone is a fan of bulky massage chairs. For one, not everyone has the room space for it even if the design does not bother them too much. 

The Infinity Riage CS Massage Chair is therefore an ideal selection because this is easily one of the most compact sized home massage chair in the market.

One of the very few that does not compromise features for size, read on to see why we think this is the best massage chair for small spaces.

Product Name

Riage CS

Product Dimensions

38 x 23 x 38 inches

Key Functions

  • Full back massage (L track)
  • Shiatsu, tapping ,rolling
  • 4 automatic programs
  • Space saving recline and rocking mode

Maximum Capacity

Height: 6'2"

Price & Availability

Space-Saving Design

The difference is apparent when you compare the size of the Riage CS with the traditional-looking massage chairs in the same $1,000 category. To give you perspective, it is almost half the height of the Favor-03 Plus.

Incidentally, this means that it is able to fit in most homes, including apartments.

infinity zero gravity recline

What's impressive is that despite the limitation small sizes bring to both design and function (as is apparent with so many other small massage chairs out there that need to have a lot of features cut out), Infinity manages to squeeze in a zero gravity feature. 

Yes, the Riage CS is able to recline fully. Even if you don't need a massage, you can still enjoy it as a power recliner at home.

infinity riage portable wheels

All it needs is just 2" of clearance from the wall, so you can actually push it into tight spaces.

Speaking of which, there are hidden wheels at its bottom to help you do just that.

Even without them, you will find that it is much lighter than other massage chairs, all thanks to its compact size.

Massage Features

So we mentioned above that there are features a small massage chair will have to forego.

For the Riage CS, it is the airbag technology - this chair employs no airbag components to get rid of the bulkiness that often associates with them. 

Instead, it emphasizes on a roller system which arguably, is actually better than a pure airbag massage regime. This is because rollers mimic the rolling and kneading of professional massage therapists' to relieve muscles from pain, tension and stress.

infinity massage techniques

This chair here uses a 4-node travelling roller mechanism to provide a deep kneading relief effect. In particular, the massage techniques that it provides include:

  • Robotic kneading
  • Tapping
  • Kneading & Tapping
  • Shiatsu

The rollers travel along what's called an L track system, from the neck and shoulder all the way down to the glutes, kneading your muscle and skin along the way with simulated human touch for a soothing massage sensation.

infinity riage cs l track

Because of its ability to travel beyond the spine reaching the glutes, buttocks and areas underneath the thighs, the Riage CS is able to target the lower back region better. 

Combine this with the lumbar heat function, it actually makes for one of the best home chair for lower back pain.  

There are 4 auto programs combining different massage techniques and speeds for you to choose from but you can also create your own massage program by using the manual control to target trigger points and areas that need particular attention. 

Now, the Infinity Riage CS is also advertised as a 'rocking' massage chair. What this means is that it is able to rock back and forth in a metronome-based movement to give the classic rocking chair feeling for soothing relaxation. 

We don't see this being offered in any other chair, so it is truly a pleasant surprise to have found it in a massage chair that is under $1,000.  


One thing worth mentioning is that the brand offers a 1-year warranty period for any in-home repair or replacement. 

Yes, apart from sending all covered parts deemed necessary to you, an authorized service provider will actually be sent over to repair the chair at your residence if there is a need at no extra charge on your part. 

On top of that, it provides unlimited customer and technical support to all US-based customers. 

If there is one thing that speaks about a product's quality, it is warranty and after-sale services like these that give you the confidence of its reliability and durability.

Things to Take Note

Having said the above, it does not mean that the Riage CS is without any limitation. One of it being not exactly the best massage chair for tall person. 

What's one of its bestselling point is also its limitation but understandably so, given it is designed to be smaller to fit in compact spaces.

Yes, when it is meant to be smaller, naturally, it cannot fit the bigger in size. 

Although it is said to be able to fit people of up to 6'2", we actually think that the ideal fit for this chair are those around 5'10". 

At this height, the chair gives a baby cradle-like effect and the rollers are able to hit at the optimum spots on the glutes and backs of your thighs, running through the entire L track.

infinity calf vibration riage cs

Also, do take note that there is no massage at the calf and foot area. What you get is vibration and while that gives some sort of sensation, it does not compress or put any pressure in the leg region. 

So yes, not exactly the best foot calf massager - the Real Relax will be a better option if this is an indispensable feature to you.

The good thing is that its leg rest can be operated independently from the chair back, so you can adjust them separately into the position that is comfortable to you. 


Infinity Riage CS

We will say that the Infinity Riage CS is suitable for those suffering from lower back pain as the chair focuses primarily on this with its L-track roller system and massage features. 

Save as for the limited foot and calf massage option, it does indeed provide an excellent full body massage that will relieve its users from tight muscles and tensed joints.

Certainly, its zero gravity function gives it a much favourable head start compared to this or this, both of which are models in a similar size.

Of course, the compact design is an indisputable plus point for those with limited space.

Real Relax Favor 03 Plus Review

One of most highly recommended massage chair by our editors here is the Real Relax Favor-03 Plus

Product Name

Favor-03 Plus

Product Dimensions

63" x 30" x 34"

Key Functions

  • full body massage
  • zero gravity positioning
  • customizable massage
  • 6 auto modes
  • Back heating 
  • Bluetooth audio play & LED lights

Maximum Capacity 

Weight: 400 pounds 

Height: 5.2 - 6.1 feet

Price & Availability

Usually, we are rather skeptical when a massage chair claims to have too many features, especially when one comes from a lower price point.

You see, there are actually two approaches that companies usually take: 

(i) load their chair with as many features as they can (but not necessarily done well) in the hopes of attracting more customers, or

(ii) pick one or two features and specializes in them, forgetting the rest.

The Real Relax Favor-03 Plus is the former, but with functions implemented well beyond expectation. Here's why: 

Full Body Massage

For one, the Favor-03 Plus is equipped with a whopping 50 airbags.

That's almost double the number of airbags found in most massage chairs.

real relax favor 03 plus full body massage function

As you can see, these airbags are placed all over the body - shoulders, arms, hips, lower back, calves and feet. 

What you get is a true compression at all these parts (the common areas of pain and aches), relieving you from them and improving your blood circulation.  

And oh, there is a built-in waist heater to further promote blood circulation at the lower back region.  

On top of that, 8 massage rollers are placed at 8 fixed points to the neck and back.

There are 3 levels of speed and strength for you to adjust, and you can customize the back and waist mode by adjusting the rollers up and down using the remote control.

It wouldn't be a full body massage chair if the Favor-03 Plus doesn't have foot massage. After all, this is probably one of the most sought-after feature for many.

real relax foot massage
real relax favor 03 plus extendable footrest

What we like about its foot massage function is that it combines both airbag and rollers massage to the feet.

The airbags compress and squeeze the tight calves muscles while rollers tap and roll under the feet to relieve them from any tension or pain. If you have tried a combination as such before, there's no going back. 

The footrest is extendable up to 5" so it has a wide height range fitting people from 5.2 to 6.1 foot tall. 

Zero Gravity Positioning

Now this is something we'd never expect to find in a massage chair with this price point. 

After all, a good zero gravity massage chair can easily cost you a few thousand dollars. 

But no, this is not some false advertising gimmick just to pull in the crowd.

You see, there are many massage chairs that claim to be zero gravity just because they are able to recline, but in fact, they are not.

Not with the Real Relax Favor-03 Plus.

This chair has a total of 3 Zero G positions - Initial, Comfort and Deep - with a reclination of up to 180 degrees. 

real relax favour 03 plus zero gravity

If you’ve done your research, you’ll know this is a rare find as most chairs usually have 1 position only, even for the more expensive ones. In this regard, the Real Relax Favor-03 Plus is truly a pleasant discovery.


Available only in the recently updated version are features like Bluetooth Audio Play and Changing LED Lights.  

real relax favor 03 plus updated

The new breathing light adds a different ambience to the room and you can now connect your chair to your mobile phone and play your favourite songs as you enjoy a relaxing massage. 

Although not really essential, these are no doubt nice extras to have which usually, can only be found in massage chairs in the pricier end of the spectrum. 

Also, the chair has now 6 auto modes (an increase from the previous 4) that include: Relax, Sleep, Neck, Stretch, Sport and Waist.

A timer of up to 30 minutes is still available in the updated version. 


real relax favor 03 plus

Comparable to massage chairs in the higher price range, the Real Relax Massage Chair is not without limitation.

For one, it doesn’t have 3D scanning or body stretching. To have them will increase its price no doubt but for what is is, the Real Relax is a great chair with exceeding functionalities. Definitely one of the top best massage chair under $1,000 that we will recommend!
