Massage Table
For a relaxing massage, I prefer giving and receiving on a massage table, but for a deep tissue massage, I prefer giving on a floor mat .
Floor Mat
Any location works for me, but as the surface changes, the type of massage I am willing to do shall change. Each requires and is effective for different modalities. For most therapuetic techniques, for example, a soft bed would be a poor choice.
Massage Table
i dont mind any but prefer massage table or bed
Massage Table
Table, bed or floormat
Massage Table
Table.. .
Floor Mat
Historically massage has been on the ground. The massage table is a modern concept
Floor Mat
Feel safer
Massage Table
A massage table is the appropriate place which is why they make them. With a table it is easier to get to all areas of the back, neck and head. Having said that, there are certain massage techniques that are easier to do on a mat or futon.
Bed
King king bed
Massage Table
Floor mat if Nuru or tantric
Massage Table
Tables best for masseur posture and firmer base under subject
Massage Table
Massage table works best for massage depending on where it goes during the massage then the bed works too
Massage Table
Floor Mat is equally good. Bed is a reasonable substitute but not ideal
Bed
open to bed or Table
Massage Table
Table or floot
Massage Table
Or floor mat
Massage Table
Can get to those special areas easier.
Massage Table
I have a bed that i use in my home but when im traveing I could do it on a bed
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 firm bed works as well.
Massage Table
However - it’s not a big deal
Massage Table
Extra wide, nice and cushy. Guys, if you are serious about hosting, invest in a quality table. It will change your life and keep them coming back. Enjoy!
Massage Table
Sometimes the table hurts my kneecap, even with a pillow, but a bed kinks my neck, especially with a pillow.
Massage Table
I am 5-10 tall table work best for me, its easier to work with the receiver to access all body when needed. Also for sports massage I can add more power if needed.
Massage Table
I like a table and this is my first preference. I like to be walked on, so most people don’t have access to the bars overhead for stability. A bed works okay too as well as the floor.
Bed
Prefer a bed makes it a lot easier with b2b massages plus there’s more room and when you need to stand up massage certain areas it still works out well. Some massage tables can be super uncomfortable for a guy too.
Massage Table
Like the others have stated, table is best for actual massage, but who doesn’t love it in a comfortable bed. My massages are almost entirely ending happily!
Massage Table
I've had massage on a table, a bed, the floor
Massage Table
Bed works too.
Massage Table
Or either. Depends on the mood and/or type of massage. More room on bed but can't be saggy.
Massage Table
I prefer giving a massage on a table for the height and once you have been trained on using a table the deviation from it feels unnatural not to say I can't adapt but also if the bed is too soft both parties are going to sink in and have to compensate.
Bed
more room
Bed
I am only interested in all nude undraped sensual and b2b massage, so I prefer to be in bed. There is more space for everyone to move and enjoy. Bed is more comfortable and convenient when transitioning from massage to intimate fun and more that follows.
Massage Table
It's a no-brainer really. You can't give a thorough full body massage - and be comfortable while doing it - on anything other than a massage table.
Bed
More universal
Massage Table
Whatever is most comfortable and easier for the one giving .
Massage Table
Table best and offers greater access whether for therapeutic or sensual massage.
Bed
A bed allows more physical contact and more choices are available like using lots of oil with a plastic liner under the sheets for both therapeutic and Sensual Massage. My style is giving and enjoying the other person getting pleasure from my touch.
Massage Table
Any professional would agree that the table or chair is best for body work. Any other option hinders the therapist from providing the best service they know how to. It’s how we were trained and it should be how we continue to practice. If the session takes a turn towards sensual or intimate, obviously a bed would be best, and if that’s the clients initial intent, clients could suggest that the table be set up in the bedroom upon arrival
Massage Table
Same as most said, easier to move around and access the whole body. I don't know about others but, I have plenty of extra padding on my table so it is comfy and the table is strong enough to support 2 people (hehehe).
Bed
its where we’re going to wind up anyway!
Bed
I prefer the bed. It's more relaxing and makes it easier to switch to something a little more intimate if the mood is right and both people are comfortable with doing so.
Massage Table
Better access, better pressure and less stress on legs and back
Massage Table
A table is obviously the best tool for both involved unless you want to get more personal...
Massage Table
Prefer a table...so much easier on my back when giving. And helps me access all areas of the body.
Massage Table
Bed or table. Both nude make the experience enjoyable for both ,
Bed
Bed is more relaxing and easier for receiving and giving massage.
Massage Table
Massage table or bed, but any comfortable location works for me.
Massage Table
Massage table is the best to give a healthy massage without causing any physical injury. The same massage table can be used for a better sensual massage and release.
Floor Mat
Easy to massage and can give deep or medium pressure using long stroke and stretching
Massage Table
Massage tables are easier on the person doing the massage but a bed is more comfortable and relaxing for the receiver.
Massage Table
Like many said easier to work for both. Also for me better for my lower back when getting a massage.
Massage Table
Much easier to manoeuvre around and access the full body
Massage Table
I am very methodical about my work and this affords me the most mobility in the work space. Deep Tissue done the right way. Slow and Focused. No pain all gain.
Bed
Opens up the option of Angel Fantasy Roleplay that has become a favorite to many of the woman I work with.
Massage Table
Much easier and provides better support for the client
Massage Table
Massage table for massage, bed for sensual massage and more!
Bed
Bed it is.. for ultimate comfort
Massage Table
Easier to work

Always the best, and made for the exact purpose ;)
Bed
Feels better in bed
Massage Table
Usually On A Massage Table, Stiff Bed, Thick Mat Hot Tub, Bath Tub , But Basically, I'm Flexible About It & It Also, Depending On The Other Person/Persoms. = U Tell Me__?? !!
Massage Table
I like the real deal experience
Massage Table
A massage table is better than a bed imo, for sensual massage as well as therapeutic massage. Beds may be better for sex, lol, and I wonder if this is what people are alluding to, when they say they prefer beds. If a bed has to be used, a single bed is better imo, as it allows the person giving the massage much more comfortable access to all parts of the recipients body.
Massage Table
Allows for most flexibility, especially if older...
Massage Table
I also gave a massage table, Hamersley
Bed
Depending on the massage technique , I have used all listed locations to perform an amazing bonding massage experience. It also depends on the medium I'm working with. The end result is a safe , relaxing location to bond with and energies your partner. Improvise is the key word to satisfaction and a higher level of self.
Bed
More room for both. Easier to relax
Massage Table
Bed is a distant second choice.
Massage Table
Best experience, and easier for massage techniques. My massage table heats up and is more comfortable then a bed, everyone loves it
Bed
Table is good, but I don't have one. I have a room i could set up if this works out good.
Massage Table
Table is only way to go!
Massage Table
I prefer the surface that best meets the type of massage I am receiving. In Thailand I came to appreciate floors and wide surfaces. In Japan, the mats. It really depends.
Massage Table
Massage table for sure!
Massage Table
Bed is okay too.
Massage Table
Table for sure. You have access around the entire body.  Feet, hands, head, you can flip with minimal movement and have total body massage without to much interruption of the experience.
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 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.
Massage Chair
Wherever however whenever wherever is good for me
Floor Mat
Best for spine support
Bed
Anything that’s comfortable
Massage Table
anywhere that is comfortable is fine
Massage Chair
just more comfortable to stand and massage folk on. zero back pain.
Massage Table
Table for therapeutic. Bed is good for sensual.
Massage Table
For me it’s more comfortable and I feel the therapist can do their best work with ease.
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.
Floor Mat
Flying Therapeutics and Thai Massage
Massage Table
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
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
or a hard bed. Soft bed sags too much.
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
whether giving or receiving, a massage table is the best.
Massage Table
For a better overall massage.
Massage Table
Table is definitely the easiest. It sits higher than a bed and is easier on your knees than the floor. - NudieInOH
Massage Table
I prefer the table much more sturdier
Massage Table
Or Bed
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
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
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.
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.
Massage Table
Better to work all the way around the body with
Massage Table
Massage table
Bed
Easier for full body contact
Massage Table
Table, for good hard solid ability to work.
Floor Mat
Bed or table or floor mat
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.
Massage Table
...but anything available is fine, or can be creative!
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 :-)
Massage Table
Foot of bed is second choice
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
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
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
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
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
The table is the easiest way to reach all needed areas.
Massage Table
I prefer being on a massage table but i am not picky.
Massage Table
table is easiest for me to give
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
Much better access using table. Easier on back too.
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
I like a table at the right height for me.
Massage Table
Table is best, chair OK
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
These old knees don’t do well getting down to the floor or on a bed.
Massage Table
A massage table is ideal.
Massage Table
I honestly don’t see how as anyone could prefer any of these alternatives if a table was available regardless.
Bed
I do better on bed.
Floor Mat
I feel better connected during a massage session when working on the floor.
Massage Table
You have many options to connect with the other person.
Massage Table
It seems easier to move around a body on a table for me.
Massage Table
It's much easier using a table especially you can get to all the angles better.
Massage Table
Seems easiest and most accessible to all parts for all methods.
