    What is the story with OMT tables?

    Do we have to buy them? any type better than others? price? &c?

    Thanks in advance.

    I hope your school doesn't require students to buy their own OMT table. Usually the school will provide. Also, those tables are expensive too.

    Having your own table is handy if you want to practice away from school or treat friends and family away from school. Mine cost about $400 fully assembled with a case. It's a Strong-Lite, which is a very good table. They make a table with special one inch, high density foam for osteopathic students. Most massage tables, at least by this company, have two inch foam that make it more difficult to perform many techniques. If you're very interested in OMT, I reccommend buying a table. The UAAO club at my school (UOMHS)holds a table sale every year. Club members get a twenty percent discount on the table, which more than makes up for the cost of dues.

    Why did you resurrect a 10+ year old thread to post something completely irrelevant?

    I think I'll stick with my otoscope, although an autoscope sounds rad too
