It doesn’t mean that you can’t get your regular massages after getting pregnant. If any, you should be getting even MORE massages than before because they help so much in easing and relieving the pain and aches that come with the job of carrying an extra human being inside you.
Which is why there are many massage therapists that specializes in prenatal massages. If you’re one of them, the Master Massage Eva Pregnancy Portable Massage Table is the prenatal massage table that we will recommend.
Not such a big surprise there, considering it is manufactured by one of the very best massage table brands in the industry.
The Eva actually resembles the Santana in many ways, in fact, both share very similar features except the Eva features a removable breast filler and belly filler. That is probably the biggest difference between the two. The Santana is our top favourite best portable massage table, naturally, you can expect great things with this one here.
Breast and Belly Filler
Let’s talk about the breast and belly filler first. Both can be easily removed and put back in place so that it can fit various body types and height.
The ergonomic and innovative design allows it to provide both the client ultimate comfort during massage as well as maximum access for the therapist. A stretchy mesh bracket is installed under the table and this works to comfortably support the belly and reduces pressure on it.
Don’t think that this is only suitable for your pregnant clients. Male clients with big belly or requirement of a supine (face up) massage are able to utilize this feature as well.
And for your usual clients, simply put the breast and belly filler back in place and voila, you have a standard flat portable massage table!
For other features, they are the same as the Santana, to mention a few, it includes a reinforced arm sling, patented ergonomic adjustable Dream Face Cradle and a revolutionary universal face cushion that is able to meet the different shape of each client’s face.
It also uses its patented ultra-strong duo-plane hinge instead of traditional piano hinges and it has the same shiatsu cable release that allows it to convert into a tatami. We won’t go into too much detail here as we’ve done that for the Santana so head over there to read more about them.
Likewise, the Eva uses the same 3-inch 3-layer small cell foam system to create the best balance of comfort and support for the clients and it also has reiki endplates on both sides for the therapists.
Not only does this make it more sturdy, these endplates are made with fine European beech wood and they are finished with a rich mahogany hi-gloss to give it a beautiful glow.
This existence of reiki endplates on both sides make this a full reiki portable massage table, which, to be honest, isn’t that many in the market nowadays as most have it on one side only.
With the reiki panels, you get to go closer to your client for a better massage angle without suffering back pains as you get to extend your knees under the table comfortably from both sides when you’re giving a head and shoulder massage or otherwise.
Exclusive Numbered Leg Adjustment Holes
One thing that the Eva has which the Santana doesn’t is that the former has numbered leg adjustment holes on its table legs.
This feature is exclusive to this pregnancy massage table only and what it does is that it allows you to quickly, and easily, adjust the accurate height adjustment.
You no longer have to guess or fumble around to adjust all four leg heights (we’ve all been there before - one side shorter than the other?), just follow the numbers and all sides will be balanced.
Quick Set Leg Adjuster Knobs
Yes, we’re still on the legs. This travel massage table uses knobs (as pictured) for its height adjustment and this should be what to look for when shopping for the best portable massage table because these knobs, we tell you, they eliminate 70% of the normal effort to raise and lower your table. Work faster, and save your energy for your massage!
Ingenious Auto-Lock Leg System
It’s all about convenience and portability with the Eva. Exclusive to this pregnancy massage table is the brand’s Auto-Lock Leg System which lets you easily open and close the table in seconds. No assembly is required - you can set up this foldable massage table strong in just three steps. Anyone can do it.
Pros and Cons
The Master Massage Eva Pregnancy Portable Massage Table is hands down the best pregnancy massage table in the market.
The materials it uses are free of chemicals - the foam is CFC-free, all wood is free of formaldehyde and carcinogens in compliance with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) law - which is the more important when your client is pregnant.
If you specialize in prenatal massages, this is the one to go for. There isn’t many that is even comparable, with the exception of this one here that has a lower price tag so that may be appealing to many. If you have already bought the Santana or has another portable massage table, fret not, you can still get one of these (more here) to cater to your pregnant clients.
