The Earthlite Avalon TILT Premium Portable Massage Table is the same table as the Avalon FLAT. The only difference is that this one has TILT functionality. The tilt option is especially helpful for patients with respiratory conditions, such as asthma.
Asthmatic people typically have difficulty breathing when lying flat on the bed. A pile of pillows is often used in the absence of a tilting bed so that the person is nearly in an upright or 90-degree position. Many medical practitioners point out that this is due to the lungs getting the most air flow and the least effort when sitting erect rather than lying on a fetal, back, stomach or any other sleeping position.

The Earthlite Avalon TILT Premium Portable Massage Table is as expected, highly recognized for its stability. For that reason, many owners use it for a variety of reasons. They range from sporting events to adding an extra bed as a way to accommodate more clients.
Its tilting option also opens up opportunities for other applications, such as reflexology. Tilting is also very helpful when dealing with patients who have respiratory conditions.
Although the weight is justified, smaller practitioners may have a tough time moving this table. In this case, a massage table cart will come in handy.
Some users have lamented over its steep pricing. Sure, the Avalon XD is a premium table, but it would have been more enticing if it included arm rests and a bolster in the package.
