A Guide to Massage Table Accessories

All massage therapists recognize how important it is for them to have a high quality massage table in order to help clients become relaxed, comfortable, and therefore more able to enjoy the overall massage experience. Not only does this help maximize your profits as a business, but it also increases the quality of your massages so that you truly are providing a beneficial service for your clients. There are a number of different massage table accessories you can purchase to increase the comfort of your table and to give your client a memorable relaxation experience.

There are two massage table accessories that you absolutely must have to increase the comfort of your table. One of these accessories is armrests for the table. Most individuals who are just beginning their massage therapy careers use portable tables. These portable tables can be folded up and taken anywhere you need to go for business. These tables are fitted with slots for these accessories to be connected to the table. Clients will then have a comfortable place to put their arms during the duration of the massage. The other accessory is footrests. These are similar to the armrests and increase the comfort of your clients by giving them support for their feet so that they can sink deeper into relaxation.

Table sheets are also important massage table accessories to have. You want to pick sheets that have a face cradle cover to provide maximum comfort for the client’s head. You can choose a number of different sheet sets made from a wide variety of different materials. One of the most popular types of sheets is made from cotton. You can buy sheets with different thicknesses to provide warmth if the area you work in tends to be a bit on the colder side. You will have to choose between either disposable sheets or ones that you wash after each use. Be sure to keep a lot of clean sheets in stock if you use washable sheets.

Stools are also a great massage table accessory. These stools are not designed for the client, but are designed to help the therapist. Some people get specific massages that would be easier to perform from a sitting position than from a standing position. Stools enable the therapist to be comfortable and better focused on the client who is getting the treatment. You should spend some time looking through medical news magazines for product reviews for these and other accessories you might want to buy.
