So far, we haven’t reviewed a portable massage table that comes with armrests on the side. Well, this is the one - the Saloniture Professional Professional Portable Folding Massage Table is one of the best value-for-the-money buy if we may say so ourselves.
Now, before you think that armrests are going to add unnecessary width to the table, know that they are completely detachable so they wouldn’t affect its portability. Once detached, you can pack them alongside other accessories underneath the table itself before folding it in half and inserting it into the 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.
Accessories that come together with the table include:
With these accessories, you get to customize the table accordingly to different client’s size and needs. Attach the winged armrests if your client is on the bigger side or add the arm sling under the headrest for them to rest their arms on.
With these, you get the flexibility to adjust and reposition the table as needed where it sees fit. The 6.5" (long) x 4.5" (wide) face cradle on top of the table is removable as well for quicker setup on the go.
Construction and Craftsmanship
In terms of its construction, this foldable massage table features professional-grade craftsmanship, including a sturdy hardwood frame along with double tension knobs on each leg for extra stability.
Its support cables are composed of the same high-quality steel used in automobile brake construction, providing solid support for up to 450 pounds. The table legs have secure, non-slip, non-marring feet, which prevent sliding during massage as well as provide floor protection.
For the adjustable headrest, it features a premium composite support that is resistant to both bending and warping. This is actually a thoughtful part from the company as a headrest is subjected to a lot of moving/storing so it is important that the materials it uses are able to let it keep its shape so as not to affect the client’s comfortability.
Both the table top and armrest wings are composed of a plush, 2” thick layer of high-density foam. There’s nothing to shout about this -- 2” is the standard but it is not as comfortable as the 2.5” or 3”s. Nevertheless, the face pillow does have 3” of foam and it comes with a removable cover for easy hygienic care.
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.
