I ordered a massage table for school and shelled out a lot of money for it. I just received it today and opened up the box. It has a rip in the fabric about 2/3 of an inch on the side where you…Continue

I feel unprepared to start massaging clients in my program. We have been spending a lot of time on theory and not much time on technique. I am starting to worry as we have to have 24 outside massages…Continue

"You really should return it.  This table will likely be with you for another 10 years if you take good care of it.  You don't want to have any of the table integrity compromised if it is not necessary."

"I’d send that picture off to the supplier and the manufacturer of the table.  See what they say.  That’s not right.  You should be compensated for, or get a new table.  Let us know what they say.  "

Received ripped massage table.

I ordered a massage table for school and shelled out a lot of money for it. I just received it today and opened up the box. It has a rip in the fabric about 2/3 of an inch on the side where you wouldn't be able to see it once it has been folded out into a table. My question is would you return it for a non damaged one, or would you live with it and maybe get a repair kit?See More

Massage therapy technique videos

I feel unprepared to start massaging clients in my program. We have been spending a lot of time on theory and not much time on technique. I am starting to worry as we have to have 24 outside massages done by the end of December. The teacher seems to think we know what we are supposed to do, but we as a whole, don't. Does anyone know of any videos that show the different strokes in a full body massage? Btw, the majority of the class feel the same way as I do.... any ideas?
