Portable Therapy Furniture Buyers Guide

Whether you’re a seasoned healthcare professional or just starting out on this exciting journey, one of the most important purchases you will ever make is a portable treatment table.

Physique Massage Couch

You’ve worked extremely hard to get to this point. So knowing the products you choose are going to give you the best results, as well as being reliable, functional and comfortable for yourself and your patients, is what you deserve.

There’s a lot to consider when looking for a treatment table and even more on the market, so we appreciate how daunting it can be. We’re here to make your choice simple and eliminate any of the stress.

When first looking for a treatment table it’s best to consider exactly what treatments you will need it for and where you’d expect to use it.

For a therapist on the move, you’ll need something that is easy to transport, lightweight and efficient to fold up and down. You can have all of this without having to compromise on strength, dependability, appearance and comfort. It wasn’t always this way, fortunately for you, design and functionality of portable treatment furniture have progressed rapidly over the last 10 years.

If you’re lucky enough to have your own clinic, our portable therapy furniture also provides reliable solutions that are strong enough to handle a busy therapists schedule. With easy height adjustments suitable for all treatments and any size patient.  

You've sussed out where... What's next?

So now you know where, it’s time to consider what treatments you will be providing.

If you’re treatments mainly require the patient to be laying down, then a flat couch can be all you need. Often the preferred choice for massage, osteopathy, reflexology and acupuncture among others, a simple flat table will allow you to complete your treatments.

For treatments that require patients to be in numerous positions, e.g. physio, sports therapy, beauty treatments etc. then a couch with an adjustable backrest will be a huge advantage. Many patients feel more comfortable sitting upright or at an angle when they are being assessed or treated. It can also be easier for therapists to conduct their work if a client is able to be supported by a backrest.

Another option that has become increasingly popular, especially with mobile practitioners is a Therapy Chair. Compact, comfortable and great for massage, spinal treatments and much more.

So here's your 3 options... 

Now let's have a closer look...

Flat couch

The biggest advantage of choosing this style is the weight. As there’s much less needed in the construction you can expect these to be a few kg less than a couch with a backrest. Perfect for all types of massage and incredibly easy to set up and down.

Physique Massage Couch

Physique Massage Couch

  • Weighs only 10kg
  • 6cm thick upholstery with sprung mattress
  • Dimensions 183cm x 63cm

We didn’t want to stop at providing you just any old portable flat couch like many other sellers. Oh no no no… we like to make our job even harder so you get the ultimate lightweight table.

So how did we do this?… The answer is levitation… Only messing, we’re not blessed with Jedi powers. The real answer is in the base. Just about every treatment table you’ll find has a wooden base (usually plywood), these are nice and strong but they contribute to the weight. So we looked at other options that would provide you with strength, comfort and crucially take away some of the weight for you.

Physique Massage Couch

And one clever intervention sprung to mind!!

Our unique spring mattress featured on the Physique Massage Couch has been a revelation. Using an extremely strong woven fabric to replace the traditional wooden base, that is thread bound all the way around the perimeter, has delivered exceptional results. It not only provides you with an extremely lightweight couch at only 10kg, it’s also exceptionally strong, comfortable and with the slight spring effect delivers you the best possible feedback during massage.

And that’s not all… Constructed with an incredibly resilient and lightweight aluminium frame the Physique Massage Couch features arched end plates. The beauty of these is you can sit at either end as well as the sides of the couch to deliver your treatments, without struggling to position your knees and getting them trapped underneath. Also if you remember physics classes an arch distributes weight more efficiently so is stronger than a standard square frame.

Couch with adjustable backrest

If you’re looking to provide a variety of treatments than having the option of a backrest to sit your clients up is a huge advantage. Slightly heavier than a flat couch but just as easy to set up and fold down. 

Physique Therapy Couch

Physique Therapy Couch

  • 11-Position elevating back rest
  • Lightweight table at 14.4kg
  • Dimensions 184cm x 63cm

The most popular couch we supply and that’s mainly down to its versatility. With an adjustable backrest the Physique Therapy Couch can be used for virtually all types of treatments.

So what is so special about our couch?

We’ve seen umpteen couches with a backrest over the years that were ok, but we don’t just do ok. Once again it wasn’t easy enough to just sit back and pretend that’s the best we could offer you. Physique doesn’t work like that…

Physique Therapy Couch

We’re a little bit geeky when it comes to attention to detail but we know our customers and how important the slightest feature can affect your work. I know what you’re thinking.. It’s just a backrest, how significant can it be... If it leans up and down what’s the problem? Backrests are designed to.. you’ve guessed it, rest the back, there’s a clue in the name.

The backrest on our Physique Therapy couch can be leaned all the way up to 53°, pretty much all other couches out there don’t lean up to anywhere near ours. This can make a huge difference to your treatments. Obviously it gives you a greater range to position the client, it also makes the experience of being treated much more comfortable for your patient. Instead of an awkward angle that can cause pain to your patient, you’ll be able to sit them right up, so they don’t walk out worse off than when they came in. Epic failure

View Physique Therapy Couch

The strength of this couch is incredible. We supply professional rugby teams, so huge guys well over 20 stone are being treated with the therapist often jumping on the couch as well. A lot of sports healthcare work is done out on the field, so having a couch that will stand up to the test and won't buckle under some severe weight and pressure is exactly what you get with the Physique Therapy Couch.

Featuring a strong and firm wooden base this couch is a bit heavier than the flat massage couch, but even with the adjustable backrest and solid aluminium frame it still only weighs 14.4kg.

Physique Portable Couches

Features of both Physique Portable Couches...

Both have an aluminium frame so you’ll benefit from the quick and easy height adjustments positioned on the legs. You can simply adjust the height at the push of a button from 61-81cm using the telescopic popper mechanism with 8 height intervals. If you’ve ever used a wooden table you’ll know what an advantage this is, with no need to play around with time consuming and awkward spindles.

And as if that wasn’t enough… They also come with a face cradle and arm extension so your clients can lay face down comfortably. Quick and easy to assemble with an angle adjustment to suit all clients. It slots into either end of each couch and is neatly stored inside the couch when folded, using the hook and loop fasteners on the underside of the base. On the Physique Therapy couch you can also slot this into the underside of the backrest, giving your patient a head rest when they are tilted up. I know we really did think of everything…

Physique Couch Carry Bag

You’ll also benefit from the hardwearing vinyl that is featured on all our portable treatment furniture. We understand how demanding the environments can be where you work, so having a resilient material that can be exposed to the elements and will not split from a bit of rough and tumble is exactly what you’ll get. 

Finally, we’ll also throw in a Free Carry Bag. Obviously it’s not just any old carry bag, over time we’ve realised the tricks of the trade to produce the daddy of all carry bags. Reinforced base to prevent unpleasant holes appearing, slightly oversized for an easy and comfortable fit for your couch. Stronger and more reliable zips that won’t fail when you need them most, shoulder strap that now travels over the top from one side to the other instead of from end to end, making your task of carrying even easier. We’ve also added an external pocket so you can fit some of your essentials, couch roll, bolster cushion, massage oil, pack of hobnobs or whatever else takes your fancy… kitchen sink… it will fit.. it’s humungous..

Massage Chair

They may look like something that would be more at home in a torture chamber, but please don’t judge on appearance. The practicality of having a patient in a seated position, where areas including the back, shoulders and neck can be effortlessly reached, are a huge benefit for the therapist.

Physique Therapy Chair

Physique Therapy Chair

  • Weighs only 8.4kg
  • Comfortable for all size patients
  • Dimensions 125h x 46w x 75d 

Our portable therapy chair is extremely comfortable for the client and you can carry out a variety of treatments at ease including, massage, spinal treatments, shiatsu, acupuncture and even tattooing.

Weighing in at only 8.2kg, you can be confident the Physique Therapy Chair will stand the test of time. The solid aluminium frame and extra thick cushions are suitable for all shape and size patients. You can simply adjust the seat, knee-rest, arm-rest, chest plate and face cradle, to get the perfect fit for your client. For the taller patients you can even pop the face cradle up to get that extra height when you need it.

Physique Therapy Chair

Our main aim with the Physique Therapy Chair was to find you a solution that provides extreme comfort for your patients, as well as simple size adjustment. It’s mainly mobile practitioners that use the chair, so creating you something compact that can easily be set up and folded away was crucial. We’ve achieved this without sacrificing strength and durability.

On some other chairs on the market we’d noticed the vinyl would wear away after a short period of time. Again, as with our portable couches, we made sure you get a resilient vinyl that can easily be wiped clean and will not perish from continual use and exposure to massage oils and lotions etc.

With the Physique Therapy Chair you’ll also get a sturdy carry bag with comfortable shoulder strap and handles. There’s a bit of extra room once the chair is folded inside should you need to pop a couple of extra items in...

What you'll get from Physique...

We’ve been selling treatment tables and furniture for over 18 years, we also have a team who wouldn’t like to admit a combined experience total nearer triple figures… As you could imagine we’ve seen a lot of tables over the years and learned what works and what to avoid.
 
You’ll notice our range features aluminium frame furniture. As pretty as a wooden couch can appear, the practicality, reliability and strength can be a real downfall. We’ve had samples of a wooden couch split in front of our eyes when we were simply folding it out.

  • 2 year warranty
  • Technical department onsite
  • Designed for professional use

We believe the price of our therapy furniture is well worth the investment. Ok, so we’re a bit more than what you might find elsewhere, but you’ll go through several other couches before ours show any signs of needing to be replaced.

We have honestly sold thousands of our couches and only a handful have been a problem. We have a technical department to check each item we send out and on the extremely rare occasion of a problem, we’ll rectify any issues swiftly and professionally. You’ll also get the assurance of a 2-year warranty with all of our portable items. 

Let's make your job easier...

Fab couch just arrived and I've tested it loads in the last hour already, it is strong which is what I need.

Physique Saddle Stool

Very comfortable, nicely padded stool that improves my posture when I'm doing reflexology. I would have liked it to go slightly lower which is why I've given 4 stars but for the price it was a good buy.

Physique Couch Carry Bag

A very good quality carry case. However the size is too small for my massage couch and the zip broke quite quickly I guess due to wise issue. If there was a bigger size though I would by it again! I particularly like that is plain black without any logos on it and the nylon feels thick.

Physique Saddle Stool

Fast and efficient delivery, easy to put together, very comfortable. The only thing is the instructions state the handle should be on the right hand side and mine is at the back of the seat so a bit awkward to use but ok once the seat is at the right height.

Physique Therapy Couch

I ordered a couch prior to this one at a similar value. It was damaged so it was returned. Therefore I ordered this physique therapy couch and was amazed at the quality. The leather, stitching, the frame and it's set up was so much better. I am highly impressed

Unbelievably lightweight and so easy to set up. The spring mattress is really comfortable and the upholstery is exceptional quality. Love the arch ends so I can sit at either end for close-up treatments.

Physique Saddle Stool

This stool is worth every penny. I did consider going for a cheaper option and I'm so glad I didn't. It's very comfortable, extremely well padded (which was what put me off the cheaper models) and encourages correct posture.

Couch Covers

Seems to fit well over my physique therapy couch, the ties are a bit fiddly so I don't use them. Nice and soft. Only had it a couple of days so haven't washed it yet.

Physique Therapy Couch

Arrived the next day which was very exciting. Everything in order. It's a bit heavier than I expected, but still light enough to be able to carry from car to treatment room. I am a physio, so need to be able to adjust the couch easily. The pop button legs work very well, and are fully adjustable for my height (5'3"). The only thing I would say is that the mechanism for adjusting the headrest back down once it has been tilted up is quite fiddly but I think I might be missing something - it's not obvious though how to use it. Otherwise seems a good product for the price, and the swift delivery was excellent. Oh, and the case is so easy to put on! plenty of room, zip goes all the way down. And it's not made of animal products!

Fantastic. As described...lovely finish, very easy to pop up and pack away. Very sturdy and comfortable with easy to use adjustable back rest. All folded down smaller than expected too, which is good!

Case seems strong and sturdy and allows plenty of room for couch - so no fighting with the zip!

I'm currently a student but qualify in 6 months with aim to carry this couch with me through many years to come!

Fantastic product thank you.

Really nice seat, feels like a gel seat! Fantastic value for money, we have ordered 3 in total. Used in a tattoo studio for artists to sit on whilst tattooing clients. Does the job perfectly. Thanks!!

Excellent couch. I already have one of these couches and am now purchasing a second as so pleased with it. All my clients comment on how comfortable it is. I bought a bag with wheels on but it is actually not that good so wouldn't recommend it!

Physique Therapy Couch

Couch superb, used one on the Premier Global Course.

Good comfortable couch & easy to pack & unpack.

Just wish they could make them lighter, that's my only niggle.

Do you sell bags with wheels on??

Jaime Short @ Premier constantly promotes Physique & I know 3 of us in the last week or so have bought couches from you & extra bits. You need to look after her???

Mrs Tish Bolton
19 June 2014

Reply from Physique:
The couch is designed to be strong, and with a backrest unfortunately it adds to the weight. For the price it is an excellent couch. A lighter couch with a back rest would be £100's more.

We do not sell bags with wheels on but we sell a couch transporter that is excellent for wheeling the couch over any surface.

Couch Covers

Very comfortable for clients to lie on and easy to manoeuvre onto the couch and tie on. Easily washed and ready to go.

Fantastic couch. All my clients comment on how very comfortable it is and one even pointed out to me the beautiful filigree detail to the legs! It is very easy to set up and take down and even with my tiny build, it is no trouble to carry about. Very, very pleased.

arrived as stated, lovely quality cover, not too thin, shape of the face hole is good too, fits nicely, overall excellent product

Couch Covers

This is a very good quality couch cover at a reasonable price. I was very pleasantly surprised when it arrived as the cover is large enough to comfortably fit my large massage couch (my previous covers have been a tighter fit) with strong elastic and ties that are thick enough to hopefully last for a few years.

The terry towelling material is soft to the touch and the face hole has material that drops down quite a way into the hole making it comfortable for clients. The colour is a dark navy and I'd love one in a lighter colour too to match my other towels but otherwise I'm very happy!

Jane Williams

Physique Therapy Chair

An excellent chair. Comfortable for the client. Sturdy and easy to put up and transport. Good angles and adjustability for client and practitioner. I had tried another well-known make previously and had to send it back, it was so uncomfortable. I have been using this one now for over a year and am very satisfied with it.
