What is the best option when choosing a model of spa table that is very traditional in design?

Cabinet base deluxe models in spa tables are very traditional in design, although there is a range of different styles available. These solid looking, detailed pieces are practical yet also very luxurious, giving patients and clients that truly pampered feeling. Some models have internal lights in the cabinets and they can also be equipped with hot towel cabinets, making it easy for the therapist. Cabinet styles of tables may also have built in power outlets, ensuring you never need to search for a plug in for any equipment needed in the procedure.

Are there movable tables that are durable and strong and what sizes are they available in?

Spa tables are designed and constructed to give maximum strength and durability as well as stability for the patient and therapist. The full cabinet options of tables that are constructed from hardwood are typically designed to be stationary tables, but the scissor base models can be mounted on casters for easy moving. These tables can be wheeled into patient rooms or moved between areas of a therapy or spa facility to be used where and when needed. The castors are designed to lock when the table doesn't have to move, providing an extra level of security.

Some of the scissor base tables have adjustable backs that are be manually raised and lowered to position the patient. This is important for multi-function applications where the table may be used for both esthetic procedures as well as for massage. The backrests on these tables can typically be adjusted to a full upright or a completely flat position. Other options include a full flex top that allows the legs to also be positioned. These types of tables do have an electric lift, which allows the therapist to conveniently position the table for easy patient access as well as his or her own comfort.
3. What is the difference between a flat top and a flex top spa table with a full base?

The top is typically fully electric and allows easy positioning of the patient with a very easily accessible foot control.
