The second part of this series might help you make a decision as to which types of massage tables to look for! In this installment, we cover acupuncture, spas, beauty salons, and Reiki and energy healing practices. To read the first part of this article, follow this link.
One of the first requirements that sets acupuncturists apart from different types of practitioners is their preference for wider tables. As acupuncturists rarely have to have access to a client’s whole body, and it’s much easier for this kind of practitioner to walk around the massage table during treatments than for massotherapists, who would need to move constantly. Therefore, a 30” massage table is almost certainly a more appropriate choice for an acupuncturist than a 26” or 28”table. If an acupuncturist has a stable, long-term clinic and does not travel to clients’ homes, an electric table adds a touch of professionalism that simply can’t be overestimated. More comfortable and adjustable, these tables will also help clients with reduced mobility, and it’s easy to tilt the table in such a way as to facilitate getting on and off it.
In general, a 30” electric massage table is the best choice for acupuncturists who only practice at their clinics. The 30” Lierre Classic or 30” Lierre Plus 2014 models are more appropriate options for acupuncturists who need a portable massage table to practice treatments outside clinics sometimes. But if you are an acupuncturist who prefers to put your needles or tools on the massage table while giving treatments, the 30” Lierre Plus A with square corner will be your best choice!
Spa workers aim for their clients’ total comfort during treatments: as such, they usually prefer tables with thick, incredibly soft foam. Clients will feel themselves just sink into complete relaxation when they lie down on these tables, and can even risk falling asleep! To a spa worker, however, this should be part of the experience.
Another important consideration for spa workers is the appearance of their equipment: spas are almost always equated with luxury and relaxation, and it makes sense that spa tables should not only feel luxurious, but look it. In general, as spa workers tend not to travel to clients’ homes for their jobs, electric massage tables are more appropriate. Lierre’s beautiful Electric Salon Table should meet every professional’s needs!
Much like spa workers, beauty professionals usually want to offer their clients as much comfort as possible. That being said, unlike in a spa, they also want their clients to stay immobile and focused as long as possible. Some of our customers, in the past, have expressed skepticism as to whether or not they really needed a table with extremely soft foam: their clients could fall asleep or become lethargic on their tables, which would be a very undesirable outcome. A common request for aestheticians, then, is a table that can be tilted upwards: by lifting the client’s back, professionals can access their clients’ face more easily, and make them at ease during consultations. Of our portable tables, the Lierre Tilt massage table model is especially popular for this reason, but most of Lierre’s electric tables accomplish this function beautifully.
Another important consideration for beauty professionals, then, is perhaps unsurprisingly the look of the table. Lierre’s impressive 3-section table has a sleek, modern look that inspires confidence, and it offers a degree of comfort and adjustability that simply can’t be beat. In our portable massage table line, the Lierre Plus 2014 has an especially attractive appearance: its walnut frame has a rich, beautiful dark wood tone that will harmonize wonderfully with almost any décor.
Reiki practitioners and energy healers
Energy treatment practitioners can be particular about their tables: often, factors such as the colour of the table and the texture of its materials will be a much more important aspect for them than for other professionals. For example, Reiki practitioners will often only buy tables that come in beige and white. To accommodate these preferences, it’s often best for these practitioners to come and see tables in person; otherwise, picking models that have a large number of colour choices can be a good solution.
Regardless of these aesthetic aspects, however, energy practitioners tend to prefer extremely comfortable tables, with soft foam, and they’re more likely to offer mobile treatments: portable massage tables, then, are a good option. The Lierre Classic 30” is both wide and comfortable enough to accommodate any client, and it is available in beige.
