The beneficial effects of massage beds and massage chairs are well known. They are more and more complex but also more accessible for the population. In this study, we showed the possibility of introducing the Ceragem massage bed in multidisciplinary programs for pain relief and recovery from back diseases. Although massage beds are frequently used all over the world, they are generally used only for relaxation and there are not many specialized studies that provide details about concrete ways of their use. In this study, we presented some general practical aspects regarding the use of this device and a synthesis of its efficiency of integration in physical activity sessions. We made observations during 40 months (2017-2020) over 3600 sessions in which we used the massage bed. These conclusions must be accepted with caution, because they concern only this group of subjects and the study carried out in the specific conditions of adapted motor activities.
