- Ease of Use
The BestMassage Premium All Inclusive Complete Portable Massage Table Package is BestMassage’s answer to aspiring massage and Reiki practitioners out there who are just starting out. The table comes complete with the table itself, some sheets and a ton of accessories. It competes with the Sierra Comfort SC-901 which has comparable add-ons. We’ll see which one is the best bang for your buck in this review.

The BestMassage Portable Facial Spa Bed is surprisingly strong given that it’s on the lower end of the price range. It doesn’t wobble or produce creaking sounds. Needless to say, the table wasn’t marketed as a heavy duty powerhouse. The side armrests weren’t built to support the whole body as well. It is not a good idea to put a great deal of pressure on them, such as when getting up to or down from the table.
The fitted sheets are thin and would likely shrink once washed, making them hard to fit onto the bed and supports. As a table that’s supposed to be for beginners, it lacks instructions on some of the accessories, like the oil pouch and bolster. It’s not so hard to figure out, though. There’s a velcro under the handle side where the oil pouch and the towel holder can be hung.
The included carry bag doesn’t handle the weight well and looks flimsy. It can hold the table and all the accessories, but it does show some deterioration after just a few uses.
All in all, this is a great table for personal use. It can even be used as a backup massage table in an enterprise environment, during periods when there’s an unusual volume of clients. It’s up to three tables for the price of an Earthlite. Moreover, the price difference between this and its Sierra Comfort counterpart is too far apart that the flaws in it become more tolerable. It’s not heavy duty, but it doesn’t break the bank as well.
