Earthlite claims to make all its massage tables by hand so that quality is assured. Indeed, many owners say that Earthlite massage tables are incredibly sturdy and are poised to last a long time.

User Reviews

Headrest

One thing that stands out with this table, and that isn’t found on any other brand is its headrest. Because the headrest is an add-on component, it tends to come apart after several uses. This is an issue that’s consistent among other brands. They either feel insecure, or they break down entirely. The Avalon XD’s headrest is a testament of Earthlite’s track record of high quality massage tables. It has consistently received positive responses for having a stable and comfortable headrest. Earthlite headrests are way ahead of the competition.

Weight

With respect to the weight, it’s relatively lighter than many other massage tables. Then again, the Avalon XD packs a lot of punch when it comes to quality. The weight is totally justified for a table that doesn’t squeak or wobble when a 350-pounder puts his/her weight on it. Overall, it’s still remarkably portable as it can fit inside the trunk of a car.

Endplates

For Reiki use, the Avalon XD has an endplate that goes across the top of the legs. The Reiki endplate is on one end of the table. The standard endplate on the other end doesn’t have room for the knees.

Verdict

Keep in mind that this table costs at least double that of the massage tables from BestMassage or Sierra Comfort. If you have the money, this table is a very good choice. The Earthlite Avalon XD Portable Massage Table Package is an industry standard. Many institutions use it simply because it has been proven to last for many years.
