Massage tables also have many benefits as well. Because clients usually remove their clothing to receive a massage on the table, you can use therapeutic oils to help the muscles relax. Also, you will have easier access to the major muscle groups with a table.
Some massage chairs, particularly portable ones, do not hold up well under the repeated strain that comes from multiple clients. Keep in mind that you may have some clients that are overweight, and your massage apparatus needs to be able to withstand this weight. Massage tables, particularly permanent ones, tend to be sturdier and can handle the stress of repeated usages much better than chairs.
