I've actually had a conversation about this before with a friend of mine that is a massage therapist. Most will hold at least 300 pounds. Hers can hold over 500 I'm sure because we have both sat on it at the same time without any signs of it straining. I'm not sure what brand it is, I'd have to ask.
I would call around and ask if the place has a hydraulic table. If they do, it's safe, if not I wouldn't risk it, even if the therapist says their table can hold over 500, I broke a standard table at 340 even though they supposedly hold up to 450 or whatever. A hydraulic (Oakworks brand, if you want to get specific but I doubt a place would give her that info, but maybe?) like what we have at my spa has literally held 700+ lbs of people because a few of us sat on one during a staff meeting at once, and the table was completely fine. I've also had men close to 500ish on my table and again, on the hydraulic table completely fine.
I don't know if you remember former poster Weeze, but she is a massage therapist, so I reached out to her on another site where she is still active, and she had this to say;
That sounds fantastic! Is the table he uses extra wide?If your ever in Colorado, I have a fantastic massage therapist, that will only work on chubby to supersized women, he use to work for the Dallas Cowboys as a MT for them. First massage is free, he uses baby oil, soft music and the massage is about 2 1/2 hours long. I think if u like how he does massages I think its 50 bucks per session.
If you are interested please contact me in private thank you!
This picture makes me want to head to Colorado right now! Too far away I could really use a massage.View attachment 130076 Yes. Here is me on his table. I’m also extra wide as well.
I included a pic of Maverick and his table so u guys can see. Super nice and he knows what he is doing. He also asks what type of massage u prefer and if u have any pain or soreness!
He really is amazing and he only caters to women especially plus size!
He is worth your time and energy! Also he only works with plus size women at his home. If he is doing outcall like at a hotel or something, he will do anyone, including men (but he double charges them), hairy body and baby oil, don't mix. LFMAO. He likes working on the thicker, broader and heavier women, he use to work for the Dallas Cowboys as a MT, so he knows exactly what he is doing!!I agree! I’m east coast, maybe a cross nation road trip lol
I’ve never been asked but I prefer to no lay in my stomach. It is just not comfortableDo other SS people get asked, "can you lay on your stomach?"
The last time I got a massage the person sized me up and asked in an innocent tone that question. I said sure but actually it was a little difficult. Seems like maybe I should sit.
Have others thought about this too?
Pillows? I've never gotten asked if I need a pillow. That would help. Masseuses I have gone to have a face cradle that is even with or even below the line of the table.
