The face cradle (also called a face rest) is composed of a wood, metal, or heavy plastic base and a crescent-shaped foam cover typically attached by Velcro strips. Some face cradles are not adjustable and simply hold the client's head parallel to the table. Adjustable face cradles allow the therapist to find the ideal position for the client's head to ensure comfort. Learning how to work with a face cradle and adjust it correctly takes time.
