How to Choose the Best Face Rest

posted by Custom Craftworks on January 31, 2020

When choosing a massage table, one of the most important accessories to consider is the head rest and face cushion. Custom Craftworks offers numerous massage therapy accessories to help each therapist extend his or her technique and upgrade the customer experience. Our face rests are no exception. We offer many face rests that are compatible with many of our tables.

Which Custom Craftworks face rest is best for you?

There are generally three types of massage tables including those designed for a head rest attachment separate from the table, tables that have a face hole built into the table, and those with neither. Keep in mind that head rests from one massage table manufacturer do not necessarily fit in the head rest holes on a different table. Some do, and some don't so it's important to do some research to see which head rests may be interchangeable.

To ensure proper fit, measure the distance from the center of the left face rest hole to the center of the right face rest hole located at the head of your massage table.
