Buying Hot Stones And Massage Supplies

Mar 5, 2008
Finally, there's a way to experience all the wonderful benefits and pleasures of a hot stone therapy right inside the comfort of your own home without having to spend so much.

Before your only option was to find a therapist that does home service but now you have the choice to buy your own massage stones and supplies. With these and a background knowledge about hot stone therapy, you and your spouse (and other family members as well) can give each other massages and experience the gratifying effects that come with it.

Not only that, you can also turn this into a lucrative business that will give additional income to your household budget. Of course, if you are aspiring to put up a business, it will require intensive training and a professional license rather than just some background knowledge, which is enough if you are not going to do it as a profession.

Buying good quality hot stones and supplies are essential in ensuring that you only give out the best kind of massage experience. To give you an idea on what to include in your shopping, here are some of the things you need to look for:

1. Hot stones. These are widely available online and at local department stores. You will find a vast selection to choose from. Most of these come in packages, which contains stones of different sizes and shapes that will be placed on different body parts.

2. Massage table. It can either be a stable piece of furniture in your home or a foldable table you can carry along wherever you go.

3. Massage chair. This is a chair that comes with a cushioned holder for the head which is used for back and neck massages.

4. Aromatherapy oils and lotions. These are essential in enhancing the benefits of the therapy and helping relieve tensed muscles. The scent that comes from these oils also does wonders in enabling the mind and body to calm and relax.

Buying tips for massage stones and other supplies:

1. Pick a reputable store that sells high quality massage equipment. Whether online or at the local department store, it's always best to do a thorough background check on the store before buying. It's also a good idea to get recommendations from family and friends who have tried buying these kinds of supplies.

2. Shopping online is a good option for those who want to get away from overhead and advertising costs.

3. Opt only for high quality equipment. The battle between quality versus price should always be won by quality. This will assure you of safe and effective equipment.

4. Choose massage tables that have a face ring where the recipient of the therapy can rest their faces during the session.

5. It's also necessary to purchase a durable table that will be able to sustain different weights and be sufficient for different heights.

6. Choose a variety of scents for lotions and oils so that in case a client or family member is allergic to a particular oil, there are other choices to use.

With these simple tips, you'll be able to find the right tools and equipment that will give you an ultimately blissful hot stone therapy experience.
