Selecting The Right Massage Therapy Products

Feb 27, 2008
The number of massage therapy products in the marketplace can be a little overwhelming, especially if you happen to be a new massage therapist. Because of all the different brands and stores, it may take you a while to sort through them all. Below we offer you some advice to help you in finding the right ones.

Massage Tables - The first thing that you need to do before you actually buy your table is decide what kind of business it is you are going to be running. Are you just going to be based in one location where your clients visit you or will you be offering them a service where you go to them (mobile).

But no matter what kind of service it is, you provide to your clients you will need a table that is both strong and comfortable. Also, if you are going to be traveling to your clients as well look for a table that you can easily transport in the back of your vehicle and which does not weigh too much.

Linens - As well as a table you will also need to get table pads, sheets, blankets and face cradle covers. Choose these products very carefully because they will need to endure a lot of wear and tear. If you can choose linens that feel very comfortable against a person's skin. Remember that for many of your clients they may find it difficult to become relaxed because the linens you are using are either scratchy or uncomfortable.

Although disposable face cradle covers seem like a money saving idea they should not be used if at all possible. It is always better to just have a bit more laundry to do than to make your clients have to fidget around because the cover touching their faces feels uncomfortable. If you cannot afford to get nice new covers in the beginning, then just buy one or two each time you make other product purchases. Soon you will have more than enough to cope with your clients demands.

Lotions, Oils and Creams - These are products which are essential to your massage therapy business and will need to be replaced on a regular basis. To save yourself money buy all the base products (unscented) in bulk and then over time build up a selection of essential oils to use with them.

This means that you can also provide more personalized service to your massage clients as they will be able to choose the essential oils that they like the most, and which is going to help them relax even more. Then as you begin to discover a particular client's likes and dislikes you can begin to suggest new scents or scent combinations that they may want to try.

Just by selecting the right kinds of good quality massage therapy products, this can help you towards having a much more successful massage therapy business. So take your time and do your homework before you make any purchases.
