Athena Portable Massage Table
Be sure to view our Table Accessories for additional options for your table
More therapists choose the Athena portable table than any other, and have over the past two decades. We credit that to its fully customizable design, which helps you feel fresher at the end of the day while still giving clients the massage you intend. Built from premium materials, including North American hard rock maple, American poplar, birch and aircraft-quality cables, this table's unmatched craftsmanship is full of thoughtful, therapist-friendly details. Each Athena table is also rigorously tested to withstand up to 650 pounds of pressure.

The standard width for many of our tables is 30". You can increase to 33" or even 36" wide, but keep in mind your own body mechanics and the weight of the table. A narrow table (28") is easier to carry and is easier to reach across.However, larger clients may not have enough room to comfortably rest their arms at their sides.
The industry standard for table length is 73 inches. A therapist may prefer a longer table if they have a steady clientele of very tall clients (6'5" and above.) We offer 78" length as an option on many of our tables. However, a longer table can make it more difficult to reach the feet of shorter clients. Consider a table extender that fits into the accessory holes at the end of the table to add length only when you need it.
our table should be set at a height that allows you to use your body weight rather than excessive muscular effort. If your table is too high for the required treatment, then your shoulders and upper body will be strained, and if your table is too low, then your lower back will suffer. A therapist should tune into their own experience to discover their personal formula for determining optimal height range.
Touch Responce Foam System:
Our exclusive Touch Response Memory Foam system is pressure-sensitive and molds quickly to the shape of a body pressing against it,returning to its original shape once the pressure is removed.Can facilitate a nurturing/cradling effect during the massage for your client. If you select this upgrade, please select a Natural Touch vinyl upgrade as it is not compatible with standard upholstery.
Rounded corners add beauty and freedom of movement around your table. Helpful in tight spaces. Some therapists believe energy flows better around a table with no sharp edges.
Prenatal: Prenatal Upgrade includes both breast and stomach cut outs to accommodate tender breast tissue and larger belly of expectant mothers.Includes an adjustable, padded sling for support of the round ligaments in the pelvis.Plugs for both Breast Recesses and belly cut out are included. Includes Belly Hole, Plug , Sling and Breast Recesses Plugs and FREE Specialty Fitted Sheet
Breast-Scapula Recesses: Ideal for clients with larger breasts or implants while prone or broad shoulders while supine, our Breast Recesses will greatly increase comfort during massage for both men and women of ALL shapes and sizes. Once therapists begin working with the plugs out, we find that they are rarely put back in. When you do choose put them in, they fit snugly and securely into your table. Includes Custom Fit Plugs and FREE Specialty Fitted Sheet
Side Arm Holes:
Add these to your table at the time you order if you want to prepare your custom ordered table for the addition of side arm extensions later but do not yet wish to commit to buying the side arm extensions now. For Flat/Basic Tables Only and the foot end of Prenatal or Hawaiian Tables.
- Holes for Side Arm Extensions ONLY - Head End (not recommended for Prenatal)
- Holes for Side Arm Extensions ONLY-Foot End (recommended for use with Hawaiian or Prenatal)
Our Crescent Face Hole gives you the convenience of a face hole with the comfort and adjustability of our contoured Face Rest Pillow. Use the plug to restore a flat surface.Some therapists like the fact that face holes enable them to position the client's arms above the head, while others appreciate the fact that shorter clients are more readily reached from the foot end of the table.
