Massage Table
I prefer the table to be able to easily access my massage partners full body and him to touch me while I massage. But, if a bed is the available option I’m great with that as well. The bed does allow easier availability to full body contact.
Massage Chair
Wherever however whenever wherever is good for me
Massage Table
I will only do on a table as tried a bed 2 times and did not enjoy it. When on a bed the guy seems to crowd you so I did not enjoy as much.
Floor Mat
Best for spine support
Massage Table
anywhere that is comfortable is fine
Bed
Anything that’s comfortable
Massage Chair
just more comfortable to stand and massage folk on. zero back pain.
Massage Table
For me it’s more comfortable and I feel the therapist can do their best work with ease.
Massage Table
Table for therapeutic. Bed is good for sensual.
Bed
I like to give massage since I was a kid to my friends and family then I went to school to learn the techniques and since then I start working as a professional. I only like to exchange with females only. I don’t like men give me massage my body don’t enjoy at all.

Table works the best but a good hard bed can be a good alternative.
Massage Table
Masage table much easier to work on.
Massage Table
or a hard bed. Soft bed sags too much.
Massage Table
A table is easier to work on and around. It's also easier on the back since you don't have to bend over as much as a bed or floor.
Massage Table
Table is perfect but bed, futon or mat with pillows all good.
Massage Table
Easier on the back. A floor mat would be an equal choice
Floor Mat
I like body 2 body so a bed or floor mat works great.
Floor Mat
A firm base, and easiest agreed stradling capability....And as comfortably natural appropriately_
Massage Table
I have a comfortable electric table that allows for different heights of therapist, save your back from bending over or reaching up too high
Massage Table
Those of us with back and/or knee problems can still give massages.
Massage Table
For a better overall massage.
Massage Table
whether giving or receiving, a massage table is the best.
Massage Table
Table is definitely the easiest. It sits higher than a bed and is easier on your knees than the floor. - NudieInOH

I prefer the table much more sturdier

Massage Table
All the above
Massage Table
I prefer a table. Better for my body in giving. I can move around easily to work on any part of a persons body, and alot of room to stretch.
Massage Table
Table offers the support of the person and is easier for the person giving the massage. Allows the room needed to maneuver around the body
Massage Table
More convenient
Massage Table
anywhere is fine, except maybe the chair.
Massage Table
Receiving is good on any surface. However if I'm giving I prefer a table where I can work standing up.
Floor Mat
More hard the surface better the outcome.
Massage Table
If I'm giving a massage, doing it properly is too hard to do in a bed or a futon. A floor mat is okay if I'm doing Eastern modalities, but As a professional I still need to prevent injuries
Bed
Bed so body’s can touch especially if both are nude
Massage Table
I like the table. For folks who like the floor for more pressure, More pressure can be applied to the glutes and back by doing a table mount, crawling up the end of the table. Table is much better for long term support of the back and much easier on the wrists.
Bed
Easier for full body contact

Better to work all the way around the body with

Table, for good hard solid ability to work.
Massage Table
Massage table is best for both client and therapist.. you have the means to address the person without causing undue strain and bad body postures. Massage chair is great for portability and immediate addressing of upper back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, neck and head. But its poor for getting to the legs and feet as well as lower back. -- Bed is OK but a therapist will definitely feel the impact. Floor mat is OK for Thai massage but not the others as you cause intense strain to your back, neck and hands.
Floor Mat
Bed or table or floor mat
Massage Table
...but anything available is fine, or can be creative!
Massage Table
Foot of bed is second choice
Massage Table
A strong stable massage table is preferable as gives masseur full access at a comfortable height avoiding problem of trying to reach over a bedside etc and the oils can be set nearby. Ideally the table is padded with a head rest with face hole so subject has head supported but can breathe easily while face down. A bed or floormat can be used and may be easier for body to body sensous massage. However I am completely at ease to use what ever my host has available and their preference as long as the room is warm before I take my clothes off :-)
Bed
Love all options...but the bed. So I can spread my legs properly and be properly massaged
Bed
I prefer a bed. So, I can move around on my client, more skin to skin
Massage Table
A good massage table is best. It allows for giving a good massage at various pressure and also allows for easy access for many things. If a table is not available a bed works as well.
Massage Table
But I don’t have a table.
Massage Table
Table is best but bed is ok too.
Massage Table
Chair or floor mat also work
Massage Table
A table is best but if not available a bed will do. For me the floor is too awkward and you end up with poor posture if giving a massage and then need a decent massage yourself!
Bed
Happy to use any location for massage that is available.
Massage Table
With my knees and neck issues, definitely a table.
Massage Table
I prefer a table but I am always happy to go with whatever the host has available.
Massage Table
I’m good with everything :)
Massage Table
It really depends on the set up and the persons comfort levels.. on the floor and being on top can apply more pressure and can be an amazing experience being in this position and working your skills.. but can be too intimate especially for a first meet.

Massage table with the right accessories allows for all areas of the body to be easily accessed and gives total fluidity to the masseur so the rhythm isn’t broken and the subject is completely at ease .. I would always go with the flow as all have their merits.. the ideal with a regular subject is to change the setup to add new ideas and be creative
Massage Table
Unfortunately the only way I can give a quality massage is when using a table and it must be set high. It does not really matter when receiving because my lumbar is accessable from any of the above mentioned items.
Massage Table
I prefer being on a massage table but i am not picky.
Massage Table
The table is the easiest way to reach all needed areas.
Massage Table
table is easiest for me to give
Massage Table
Much better access using table. Easier on back too.
Bed
I like working on the floor. Better for using my whole body weight for the massage! Hehe
Massage Table
Table as it's access 360, the correct height.
Massage Table
If the table is the right height, it's much easier to do a good massage......and if I'm receiving a massage I like the table better, although a bed can work
Massage Table
Table is best, chair OK
Massage Table
I like a table at the right height for me.
Massage Table
A massage table is ideal.
Massage Table
These old knees don’t do well getting down to the floor or on a bed.
Massage Table
I honestly don’t see how as anyone could prefer any of these alternatives if a table was available regardless.
Massage Table
Massage Table is the best choice for me, since we can adjust the table height for different size exchange partners and it's easy to walk around thd table. 2nd option would be bed, but it's not really ideal for giving a massage. 3rd option is the floor with air an mattress for a nuru massage.
Massage Table
It's much easier using a table especially you can get to all the angles better.
Floor Mat
I feel better connected during a massage session when working on the floor.
Massage Table
It seems easier to move around a body on a table for me.
Massage Table
You have many options to connect with the other person.
Bed
I do better on bed.
Massage Table
Seems easiest and most accessible to all parts for all methods.
