A cheap massage table that is 28 inches wide and 72 inches long. This massage table is large enough
for an average person up to 6 feet tall, especially when you add the
extra length of the adjustable face rest and the extra width of the
table side arm
This table is built using a solid, time tested design with more
affordable materials than those found on higher end massage tables. The
result is a good table that we expect will have a life span of about
two years of average use before you need to think of replacing it. This
is massage table will also function great as a back-up table.
This cheap massage table still comes with a headrest, carry case, and side arm bolsters. It is a basic table designed with the student or home user in mind and is perfect for that. It is built using the time tested "cradle-lock" leg cable system for solid performance and weight capacity.
How can we offer such a low price? Two ways: less expensive materials, and mass production.
On the production side, most professional quality American massage tables are custom made as you order them, either completely from scratch, or from pre-milled wooden pieces, and assembled here in the USA. This leads to amazing quality, but adds costs. By contrast, these less expensive tables are mass produced in a factory overseas, and hence, less expensive.
With regards to the raw materials, most USA made professional tables use familiar hardwoods such as Canadian Maple and Russian Birch, and high quality water based vinyl in their construction. These woods, vinyl, and foam are pre-screened for imperfections, and have to be imported to the factory which adds transportation and raw materials costs.
These entry level tables are made using an Asian hardwood that is located much closer to the manufacturer, so the import costs are much less. Combine that with slightly less expensive vinyl and foam and you have a much less expensive table. It is intended for occasional use or those students who are going to school or just starting out with a tight budget.
