What Type of Products Does Massage Therapy Require?

Massage therapy is a popular form of relaxation and healing that requires the right equipment and supplies. Whether you're starting a professional massage business or just getting started with massage at home, you'll need to have the right tools to ensure your massage experience is comfortable and effective. From massage tables and chairs to oils and reinforcements, here's a list of the best items you'll want to own.A quality massage table is essential for any serious massage therapist. Look for folding tables that you can take with you to your customers' sites, as customers are unlikely to have the right tables.

Look for lightweight wooden tables with an adjustable front base, armrests, and wide extensions so you can accommodate different customers. We recommend the FlexaOne massage table, and you can buy it online in our store.Replacement massage table covers keep the surface of the massage table clean and fresh as you move from one client site to another. If you work in your own massage therapy clinic, you'll still want to have replacement covers to change between appointments with clients. Look for a comfortable, durable and breathable fabric, such as a cotton/polyester blend.

To ensure a good fit, check that the cover has an elastic edge that allows it to snap into position. Other features include solid Velcro straps to prevent slipping. Covers for massage tables often come in separate pieces, such as a main one for the table and another two separate pieces for the face base and armrests.A massage table bag allows you to carry your massage table to the client's premises without problems. Look for a bag specially designed for your particular massage table.

You'll want a bag made of lightweight materials and with large handles so you can carry it on your shoulder. An easy way to make sure you have everything you need is to buy a massage therapist package. Your package can include everything from a massage table and reinforcements to a massage table bag and massage oil. Additional cushion covers and tablecloths will be useful for your clinic.Having the right equipment and supplies is vital for massage therapists.

From tables to massage oils, the products you choose reflect the quality of your therapeutic practice. Make sure you have the right equipment and you'll be trained to deliver a great massage, ensuring you end up with happier and more satisfied clients.

Massage is the practice of rubbing and kneading the body with your hands.

During a massage, a trained massage therapist will apply gentle or strong pressure to the muscles and joints of the body to relieve pain and tension.Five years ago, a colleague here in Iowa (she owned a massage supply store) recommended Sacred Earth Botanicals to me. He was kind enough to give me a sample, and I was hooked after the first time I used it.
