The BestMassage PU Portable is one of the most inexpensive massage table out there. It’s a good deal for those who are just starting out in Reiki or massage therapy.
At 39 lbs., this is one of the heaviest tables on the market today. It’s not recommended at all for outcalls or field work. The good thing about the U9, though is that it’s a solid table with little to no stability and squeaking issues.
The arm rests, as well as the reclining section (where the backrest can be raised by up to 90 degrees) are the weakest points of this unit. It may be considered as sturdy in general, but both of these unsteady attributes can be a deal breaker for some.
The 2-inch padding is not so much of an issue, but it’s not the best out there. Some competitors offer 2.5 inches or more. There is even a 4-inch pad massage table sold by the same company. Regardless, extra padding is still possible with the use of a massage table warmer.

Overall, the BestMassage PU Portable massage table is the best bang for your back on a few use cases, such as for home use or for practice. It’s not recommended for heavy duty use in an office environment due to its weight and weight limit. However, it can serve as a backup unit when demand is high.
