Upgrading Your Massage Therapy Practice with New Massage Table Supplies

Massage Supplies to Relax Your Body and Mind

You earned your massage therapy certification.  You started your bare-bones practice.  You built a steady clientele through advertising and word of mouth referrals.  You know medical news resources predict that massage therapy is here to stay and growing because of the solid benefits it adds to overall well-being.  So you've decided to build on your success and expand your practice.  A good way to start is by upgrading a few of your massage table supplies.  Following are a few items to look for.

Start with a table warmer.  The first key to a good massage is a warm body with relaxed muscles.  A table warmer provides that.  The warmer fits directly over the table and under the sheet or table cover.  First, it needs to be soft and comfortable to lay on.  It should add an extra layer of cushion on top of the padding already built into the table.  Next, it needs to provide an even temperature.  You don't want hot and cold spots calling attention to themselves.  The heating element should be evenly distributed throughout the pad, providing even warmth and comfort throughout.  For convenience and ease of use, look for digital controllers with automatic shut-off functions or timers.

Certainly, the most visible massage table supplies are the table covers and linens that you use.  Your client wants to be surrounded by luxury, and your sheets and blankets should provide that.  One of the best options available are organic cotton flannel sheets.  Flannel is preferred by many of the top massage therapists for its warmth and softness.  High quality organic flannel offers these amenities and is sturdy enough to hold up through years of frequent washing.

Adding a soft and cozy throw blanket adds a touch of homey comfort and color to your workspace.  You can use them as added padding for your client to lay on, or as a way to provide extra warmth on top of their bodies before, during, or after your session.  Another potential use is as a bolster to encourage a more comfortable position.  There are several different materials and colors to choose from.

As you can see, when looking to take your massage therapy practice to the next level, one relatively simple way is to upgrade your massage table supplies,  While you could focus on one big purchase such as a new top of the line massage table, there are more subtle, inexpensive options to choose from as well.
