Saloniture Portable Massage Table Review
The Saloniture Professional Portable Folding Massage Table is one of the best massage table bargain we have ever found.
And that is a big statement to make - if you've been browsing around, you will know that extensive research has been done with many excellent models discovered and reviewed for this 'best massage table' topic.
It does not come with just the usual massage table headrest and massage table bag like many of its competitors - this portable massage table here has a detachable arm sling and a pair of winged armrests packed together in one package, all at the price of slightly over $100 only!
What We Like
What We Don't
Structure & Construction
Despite its affordable price point, Saloniture does not discount on its material and craftsmanship.
Professional grade, this foldable massage table has a sturdy hardwood frame with double tension knobs installed on each leg for extra stability.
The support cables are composed of the same high quality steel used in automobile brake construction, providing a solid support of up to 450 pounds.
While this may not be the table with the strongest working weight capacity, especially if we compare it with the likes of this or this, it is within the average working weight of most portable massage tables, that is, within the standard 500 pounds range.
For that, we think it'd fit most people so no complaints there.
It even has secure, non-sip and non-marring feet like its pricier counterparts that prevent the table from sliding (and therefore protecting the floors) during massage sessions.
The entire table cover is draped in a luxurious PU synthetic leather, a highly durable, soft, and vegan-friendly material that is not only easy to clean but has no offensive smell like other synthetic materials. It is also oil and water-proof to resist stains.
This is where it took us by surprise - we're not expecting a massage table at this price point to come with so many massage table accessories. We are talking about:
Not even pricier models come with as many massage table parts as this one does, in fact, if you notice closely, you can see that most portable wooden massage tables do not come with armrests and arm slings at all.
Anyway, yes, arm sling and armrests. You can attach them onto the table if your client is of the bigger size or s/he simply prefers to have extra space for the arms to rest.
For the massage table headrest, it features a premium composite support that is resistant to both bending and warping.
Again, the high quality of this took us by surprise. Nevertheless, a welcomed one because it is important to have a headrest that keeps its shape for clients' comfort as this is inherently a part subjected to quite the bit of moving.
Both the table top and winged armrests are composed of a plush 2" thick layer of high density foam while the face pillow is 3" for maximum comfort, with removable cover for the latter for easy hygiene care.
All of these accessories are completely detachable and can be stored underneath the table itself to pack into the durable nylon massage table carrying case that comes with it.
Speaking of which, the bag has an adjustable shoulder strap and side pockets for you to hold your oils and supplies.
The table itself weighs 37 pounds and it locks securely with two professional chrome clasps. Should you wish, you can even carry it by itself using the double handles provided instead of using the carry bag.
