You Can Massage Even If You Can't Bend!
You Can Massage Even If You Can't Bend!
I find that I like using a Living Earth Crafts portable massage table, specifically model NC1. This model doesn't seem to exist any more. But on their web site they have many portable models, and all of them seem to have the same type of adjustable legs, with even better fittings (knobs instead of the wing nuts ours has).

Even raised to its highest position, my table doesn't adjust so that a tall person who can't bend at all can comfortably massage anyone. But that didn't stop me from creating extension legs.

They're 19.75 inches long 2-by-2s with carriage bolts and wing-nuts at 2.5 inches and 5.5 inches from the end. Of course, the length of the extension legs you'd add to your table will depend on how tall the would-be massager is.

The main things to remember are to get strong boards and to make sure at least two bolts fasten the extension legs to the regular legs.

Incidentally, when I get a massage I lie on my table with both a foam mattress and a wedge (tapered) foam mattress under me. They're the same ones I use for eating and TV watching. (See
Mattresses for TV Watching and Eating.)
