Design Features and Specifications

The construction of a massage table is one of the most important features. Massage tables need to be very strong, letting you down just isn’t an option. The WellSpring is made with incredibly strong T6 aluminium, the same stuff that’s used on aircraft’s and other huge machines – so it’s incredibly strong. Which is reflected in it’s impressive 550 lbs weight limit.

This is the main selling point that separates this table from less expensive and weaker tables. It’s worth every penny knowing that the table will not bend or buckle while your working on a client. The telescopic legs are adjustable to find the perfect height too, so it’s a versatile and durable table.

The fabric available is theirĀ TerraTouch technology. Which is earth-friendly fabric, it’s PVC-free and environmentally friendly. It’s cleverly designed for massage work. Being very comfortable, with memory to work with the contours of the client, strong, tear-resistant properties, and it doesn’t absorb oils. What else can you ask for from a massage table fabric?

Being a portable table it’s easy to packup, and re-assemble this table quickly and easily (once you’ve done it a few times). If you work as a mobile massage therapist you should do a few trial runs so you have the assembling down to a smooth, quick process.

Setting up the Table

1. Sit the table on its rubber bumpers while still folded and push the UniLock tab. This is found between the face rest outlets, you will see the table open up.

2. Check the cables are still slack and swing the table open part way.

3. You will see a ‘Y’ brace, press this against the table and pull out all of the legs and extend them fully.

4. Set the table up on all four legs. Tense the cables by pressing down in the middle.

Closing the Table

1. Place the table on its side with the rubber bumpers facing down.

2. Close the table top and fold all of the legs inside the table.

3. Push the two halves together, ensure no cables are caught, and store your face-rest inside.

Adjusting the Height

1. While no weight is on the table, locate the button on the leg and move the legs out of the hole into a different hole.

2. Adjust all legs to the same hole before applying any weight.
