I work with many successful clinic owners and my favourite business model is multidisciplinary practice: 25% chiropractics, 25% physiotherapy, 25% massage therapy, and the rest naturopathy, personal training, or other allied health practitioners.
A multidisciplinary clinic is the ideal business model: and if you have a 3000SF clinic, it should turn over $2M+ annually.
Why is it so crucial to have a diversified clinic? Because every potential patient has unique needs. Some may need (or want) chiropractic services, while others may need rehab and physiotherapy, or seek pain relief with massage therapy.
Offering a diversified range of services at your clinic will increase the number of patients you attract and your ability to keep them long term through ‘maintenance’ services or the complementary services you offer.
If you’re considering opening a massage therapy clinic or offering this service at your existing clinic, the massage therapy bed you select is incredibly important, not just for you but for your patients.
The last thing a patient wants is to be treated on a bed that feels rickety, squeaks, and is uncomfortable to lie on.
Patients expect a professional to use a table that's robust, sturdy, and provides maximum comfort. You want patients to be able to lie down and think: "I can relax, my massage therapist has professional gear and knows what they are doing."So if you're in the market for a new massage table, here is a list of our top best selling electric massage tables for 2018. We’ve shared what clinicians like and dislike most about the tables, along with our best picks for quality, purpose and price.
Durability is important for any massage table because they are the centre of any clinic.
Every single piece of equipment we sell at CSC is high quality. However, any of the electric tables above will provide greater longevity than standalone beds like the Stationary Wooden Table.
If you need a treatment table that offers more flexibility in use, the best choice is the Cardon Cosmos.
- The table can be adjusted for treatment in lying or sitting.
- The variable position armrest ensures patients can be comfortable with their shoulders relaxed in a position that suits them.
- The headrest drops to 90 degrees for advanced neck treatments.
One of the main considerations when choosing a massage table is its purpose. Will the table be used only for massage therapy or is it part of a multidisciplinary clinic? What types of patients do you treat? Do you need a specific functionality?
For a multipurpose table use, the Stationary Wooden Table provides a sturdy and comfortable experience that is suitable for use with all types of practitioners. If you want a superior level of functionality and professionalism, the Cardon Cosmos Electric Table will outdoes a stationary table in terms of both durability and patient satisfaction.
Price range is a consideration in all available products. Here’s the price range for massage tables, from lowest retail price to highest:
BEST OF THE BEST
All our models are great products. Your selection will ultimately depend on the type of treatments you provide, and the table that best suits those needs. However, for the “best of the best”, the Cardon Cosmos Electric Table is a popular choice among massage therapists in Canada.
It has flexibility and comfort, and many add-ons that ensure the table can be adapted for use both now and in the future. The ability to offer treatment in either lying or sitting makes it adaptable to many types of patients, and the adjustable head and arm rests ensure optimal patient and practitioner comfort during treatments.
BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
The Stationary Wooden Table provides the best bang for your buck.
As the lowest price table, it is obviously the most cost effective. But that doesn't mean you compromise on quality.
It's a reliable and sturdy bed that provides a high level of comfort and is suited to all types of practitioners for most daily treatment needs.
