With all the bargains that are offered this BLACK FRIDAY and CYBER MONDAY, now is the time to buy in bulk!
1. Massage Table Heating Pad
This is an additional pad you put on top of your massage table.
It radiates heat, which in turn penetrates deep into muscles thus loosening up tension, stiffness and pain - common symptoms many nowadays are suffering from as a result of long hours of sitting and stagnation.
What some may call it the best massage table brand, do you know that Earthlite has a series of massage table accessories that are widely used by massage therapists across as well?
From heating pads to massage oils, the choices are aplenty.
There are altogether 4 massage heating pads the brand has under its line, however, the best massage table warmer in our opinion is its Deluxe 1” Premium Fleece Heating Pad.
Material & Construction
Why so? To start off, this massage table heating pad is 1” thick, which is double the thickness of most standard fleece heating pads.
This makes it very comfortable for your clients to lie on, not to mention the warmth that comes from it being fleece material. It wouldn't slide around, as it has elastic corner straps to hold the warmer securely in place.
However, the highlight of this heating pad has to be its digital controller.
Most heating pads use manual controls, with some having digital heat settings but this one here is a full digital version.
What this means is that you get to control the heat and timing element digitally, to that of 1 degree increments so that you can achieve the desired temperature setting unlike others that have pre-programmed heating levels.
There is also an automatic shut off timer embedded into the warmer to keep you and your clients safe. You get to set the timer in half hour increments and it has a power cord that is 13ft long, making it convenient for you to reach the power outlet.
One thing with the Earthlite Massage Table Warmer is that it takes awhile to heat up (5-10 minutes). This is something some users complained about, with some even thinking that it’s faulty because they cannot feel the heat when they touch it.
Well, this is something we think we should address and clarify, given we say that it is one of the best massage table heating pads.
You see, the whole purpose of this massage table heating pad is to supply a low level of warmth. This is to protect the foam and upholstery of your massage therapy table because well, you’ve spent a considerable amount on it too.
Don’t worry, the heat level will be sufficient to warm your client, but know this - the warmth is stimulated by the weight of the client’s body.
What this means is that the temperature is set for extended contact with sensitive human skin which is why a mere touch may not let you feel anything.
It needs the isolation of a human body, meaning you’ll have to actually lie on it to be able to feel the heat as the internal wires are engaged by the weight/pressure.
Moreover, the fleece on the pad more often than not ‘hides’ the heat from the casual touch, especially when on low to medium settings. Without any weight or covering, the heat from the warmer escapes.
So even if you leave the warmer on for 3 hours, the heat will continually escape and the warmer will not feel hot enough since there is no weight on the warmer. Once a person lays on the warmer, the heat is trapped and your client will feel warmth.
Rather than being a hassle, we actually think that this is a good safety measure because it protects the product from burning a client and/or causing a fire.
And in the event that it really is faulty, the Deluxe 1” Premium Fleece Heating Pad is backed by a one year replacement warranty. Simply let Earthlite knows and a new one will be shipped to you, no questions asked.
An Amazon’s Choice, the Deluxe Fleece Massage Table Warmer from Therapist’s Choice is another one considered as the best massage table warmer in the industry.
Not a surprise there, considering Therapist’s Choice is a registered trademark of the Clinical Health Services Inc., reputable for its quality massage accessories.
Material & Construction
Similarly, this is a fleece-top massage table heating pad that not only feels comfortable on the skin but provides good insulation if we are to compare it with a cotton material.
High quality elastic corner straps are in place to keep the pad secured without slipping and sliding when pressure is applied and it fits most massage tables with a dimension of 31” x 71”.
Its power cord is 1ft shorter than Earthlite's, though still substantial enough to reach your massage table even if the outlet is far away.
There are 5 adjustable heat settings with the maximum temperature being approximately 88 degrees F. 4 timer settings (hourly from 1- 8 hours) are available for you to select and there is an automatic overheat protection system installed for safety purposes.
How it works is that when it is set to a higher temperature, it will reset itself to a low temperature (1 red light) after about 45 minutes of use so you don’t have to worry about overheating. Don’t worry, you can just reset it to high if needed.
Care and Maintenance
In terms of care and maintenance, all you need to do is just hand wiped it with a wet towel. If need be, you can apply a small amount of detergent before wiping it down with a piece of cloth.
Make sure it is completely dried before switching it on and remember not to machine wash, dry or iron it. We suggest laying a piece of folded sheet over the pad to keep it hygienic given that you cannot put it in the wash.
Keep in mind though that this heating pad cannot be used as a bed blanket warmer due to risk of fire and/or death.
You should also always unfold it completely while in use and not allow it to become bunched or folded to avoid causing excess heat that may result in injury or fire.
Overall, the Therapist’s Choice Deluxe Fleece Massage Table Warmer is an excellent choice to consider if you’re in the hunt for a heating massage table pad. It carries a one-year limited warranty too.
If you do not fancy the fleece material, there is a standard version too in cotton material. It has the same specs as the Deluxe version but is slightly cheaper price wise.
If fleece is not something you fancy, the Giantex Massage Table Warmer will be right up your alley.
This massage table heating pad is 100% polyester so it is heat-proof, but best of all, it can be easily washed.
You have to dismantle the connection before you do so of course, but once that’s done, simply chuck it into the washer and you can have it cleaned pronto.
Because of its material, it dries up pretty fast too so you can keep the warmer hygienic all the time without any down time.
There are 3 heat settings (0-3) with the maximum reaching 140 degrees F which you can control via an electric controller.
Similar to Earthlite’s, this massage table heating pad may not feel warm to the touch but it is obvious when you lay upon it.
There is automatic overheat protection as well to prevent it from overheating so as to ensure your safety as well as makes it serve for longer time.
There is a timing function as well for you to set within the adjusting time scale and it is appropriately sized at 71” x 30” to fit most full sized massage tables, with elastic straps to hold it steadily in place.
One downside though, is that it only comes with a 1.6ft connection cord. That is considerably short, when competitors are giving 10+ ft power cords for easy reaching of power outlets.
Nonetheless, this power cord can be dismantled for washing purposes as mentioned above, something other brands do not offer.
A polyester heating pad has another benefit and that is it is more lightweight compared to fleece ones.
This is actually a huge advantage especially if you’re a massage therapist on-the-go, as weight and portability play an important role in the products you choose.
So if fleece is not your thing, we think you will love the Giantex Massage Table Warmer.
2. Massage Table Pad
Even if you don’t get a heating pad, you will want to get a normal massage table pad (you can always get a separate massage stone warmer kit if you need to, at a later stage!).
Some call it a table topper - it means the same thing - but yes, a massage table pad is essential. It protects your massage table, keep things clean for your client as well as create a more comfortable and cozy space for your client.
Again, the main material used (and fancied by the mass majority) seems to be fleece, although that’s not quite a surprise given that fleece gives such a snug and pleasant sensation to the skin.
Alternatively, cotton is also a common favourite if you’re not into fleece.
Here’s our picks.
Yep, another Therapist’s Choice product.
This is a memory foam material that is 2” thick and measures at 70” x 30” to fit most massage tables.
It has a soft velour cover that can be removed and washed and elastic straps are given at the sides for you to secure it onto your table for less slippage.
If your clientele leans more towards back pain/soreness, this is an excellent choice because it reduces pressure by contouring to your client’s individual body shape.
Even if not for back pain relief, it is still worthy to buy because your clients will be laying on the table for at least 45 minutes to 2 hours - the 2” thickness will enhance their comfort level by tenfolds.
If your table is old but you are not quite ready to switch it out yet, the Therapist Choice Memory Massage Table Pad is also a good choice to provide the perfect coverage to an otherwise old and battered table surface top.
We have to say that it is definitely on the luxury level amongst the massage table pad market but oh, does it worth every penny it costs!
Rarely do you ever come across an item that is rated 4.8 out of 5 stars by its users, so you know this is truly a gem worth investing in.
(For a cheaper alternative, you can consider its fleece version (again, another Amazon’s Choice)).
Body Linen is another massage table pad we want to talk about.
This is a lesser known brand, nonetheless, it doesn’t discount the fact that it is an excellent product.
Unlike most massage table pads, this one here is extra soft and fluffy.
Despite that, it is able to hold its shape well so it performs somewhat similar to that of a memory foam.
The material it uses is still microfiber fleece, however, it is innovatively quilted to provide abundant thickness to give it this soft and fluffy sensation.
For those interested in the specifications, this is 480 GSM polyester fill, sandwiched between a layer of microfiber fleece and microfiber sheet material that comes up to a total quilted thickness of 1.5”.
The choice of microfiber gives it better durability and easier laundering. Most importantly, it doesn’t shed anywhere near as much as typical poly fleece pads in the laundry so there is no mess coming out of the dryer or while your put it on the table.
Now, this is an incredible feat because shedding has long been a key frustration point for standard polyester fleece table pads.
Since it launders without degrading, you don’t need to be afraid to launder this pad frequently. Also, it dries faster than standard pads.
The Body Linen Abundance Deluxe Quilted Fleece Massage Table Pad Set fits all standard massage tables up to 34" x 76" and it comes in a set that includes both pad and face cradle cover. Yep, all for the price of one. We’d say that is a pretty good deal!
If you do not wish to spend so much on a massage table pad, you can consider the Saloniture Fleece Massage Table Pad and Face Cradle Set.
Yep, you get a face cradle cover as well with the price of one.
Both are made of extra soft deluxe 460 GSM dense polyester faux fur material - a particular blend that is soft yet incredibly durable with a high density and hypo-allergenic low pile design.
This material adds not only cushion but also substantial warmth during the massage session, however, it also allows cool breathability in the summer so this is one for year-round use.
The flat pad measures at 72” x 31” while the cradle cover is 12” x 12” x 31”. Both fit its massage table perfectly, though we'd say they fit almost all massage tables (be it rounded or square corners), crescent (or round) shaped head rests.
Elastic edges are featured so that you can easily slip over to secure in place during treatments. It comes packaged in a handled plastic bag for easy transport.
One thing to note though is that there has been some complaints about the Saloniture Fleece Massage Table Pad and Face Cradle Set shedding.
Given the material, this is rather unavoidable, but it does live up to its claim of being soft and fluffy.
We suggest gentle machine washing it and use a low-heat tumble to dry it after for best results. Alternatively, you may hang it to dry as well.
3. Massage Table Sheets
Instead of a massage table pad, some people prefer using massage table sheets instead.
Either way, they work well - as long as there is a protective layer between your client and your table upholstery for hygienic purposes, it will be fine.
Whichever you go for is up to your preference, although we do have to say that pads are generally more comfortable as they are thicker and plusher.
For the best value buy, you will want to get the Saloniture 3-piece Flannel Massage Table Sheet Set.
As its name indicates, this is a complete set consisting a 33" x 73" x 7" fitted sheet, 61" x 100" flat sheet, and 13" x 13" x 5" face cradle cover.
All sheets are made of 100% cotton flannel, double-brushed to make them extra soft and comfortable regardless of temperature or season so you can use them all year round without compromising on comfort level.
The natural fiber sheets stand up to repeated washings so you can maximize your investment all while keeping your space looking great.
Not just that, but natural fiber threads allow for easier removal of the unavoidable lotion, creams and massage oil stains as well.
What makes this sheet set stands out from the rest is that it uses a unique weave in its making to gives it a lightweight feel.
This is why the substantial 150 GSM material used doesn’t transpire onto its weight, something really thoughtful as you do not want to carry any extra weight when you’re on the go.
Sized to fit almost all massage tables with rounded or square corners (a perfect fit for its portable massage table), the fitted sheet slips on easily with a stretchy elastic bound and stays in place snugly.
Likewise, the headrest cover is elasticized so that it can fit most standard massage table crescent shaped face cradle pillows.
For other table brands, you may want to use the oversized flat sheet if the fitted one is not a perfect fit.
The former provides maximum table coverage, ensuring a proper fit on all standard size tables as well as providing optimum coverage for even your largest massage clients.
Another flannel sheet set to consider is the ForPro Premium Flannel Sheet 3-Piece Set.
This may not be as well known as other competitors but nonetheless is an excellent product that we wouldn’t hesitate recommending.
Also made of 100% 150gsm pure cotton, it comes in 8 colour choices in a 3-piece set that includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet and a fitted face rest cover.
Likewise, it is double brushed for extra softness as well as for quick removal of lotions, creams and oil stains.
It is designed to sustain repeated washing so you do not need to worry about it going out of shape after several washes.
Extra-firm elastic is featured in both fitted and face cover to ensure a snug fit for all standard size tables and face cradles.
Now, you might be thinking: isn’t this exactly the same as Saloniture’s? Yes, but there is one key difference - size.
This fitted sheet measures at 36 x 77 x 7 inches, and that is 3 and 4 inches wider and longer respectively. Likewise, its flat sheet is 2 inches wider than Saloniture’s, although length-wise they are the same.
So if this is you, the ForPro is your go-to - you wouldn’t need to worry about the size not fitting anymore.
For those that prefer the fleece material, the Earthlite Deluxe Fleece Sheet Set is one choice you can consider.
It is a 2-in-1 package - a fitted cover with a matching face cradle cover both of which fit most tables with their snug elastic trips and are completely machine washable.
The Deluxe set increases your client’s comfort with its plush 1” thick woolly synthetic fleece fabric, as compared to the basic set’s 0.5”.
Of course, this would mean you’re paying slightly more for it, however, we think it’s worth it for the extra comfort level. Nonetheless, if you live in a warmer climate, the basic set may just suffice as too thick a material may get too warm after a while.
As with all Earthlite products, this sheet set comes with a one-year warranty as well so if there is anything you are not satisfied, you can return it with no questions asked.
4. Disposable Face Sheets
And while we’re at it, you may want to get disposable face sheets too - they are convenient, hygienic and most importantly, very affordable.
They provide a protective layer between your client and the bare upholstery, keeping them safe and sanitary.
There are so many different brands out there and honestly, you will think that they’re about the same. That is quite true, however, there is one extra-value package pack that we have to recommend here.
These ones from Earthlite, well, they come in packs of 100 (also available in 200) and they are probably the most well-known/used disposable face sheets by masseuse across.
Understandably so, as a pack of them cost slightly under $15 - that’s less than 20 cents per sheet.
It comes in a resealable pack to keep the disposables extra safe from moisture and open air contamination, and it has an easy-to-open packaging for you to store in either your portable table or chair carry cases.
Apart from its price, the reason why these face sheets are so popular is because they are made of medical-grade fiber that is ultra soft, thick and non-sticking.
Hypo-allergenic, they have a nice touch to it - more like a soft cotton - and feel luxurious on the skin (unlike some that feels like paper).
This is important, because you do not want sheets that leave face wrinkles on your clients’ forehead and face.
Another reason is that they are so easy to use and very convenient in place of cotton or flannel covers, both of which require washing after each use. These disposable ones save you so much time and energy, it will be very hard to say no to them.
Designed to fit almost all massage table headrest and facerest cushions, the soft and silky fabric of these Earthlite disposables conforms to the shape of your cushion and they feel like napped cotton.
For an even better fit, you can get their fitted version here - it fits all sizes of crescent cushions perfectly with an elastic trim without the need to tear or punch holes.
If you prefer the traditional type of cotton flannel face sheets, we will recommend the London Linens Cotton Flannel Fitted Face Cradle Cover.
They come in packs of 4 and 10 and there are 7 colours available to choose from, including in black which seems to be exclusively offered only by the brand as we do not see it anywhere else.
They are also some of the thickest face sheets we can find in the market - once you hold it in your hands, you can immediately feel the difference.
This is because it uses top of the line 165 GSM 100% natural cotton, which is the highest weight in the whole industry giving it an extra luxurious feel to it.
Brushed on both sides for extra softness, your clients will love the cozy feeling on the skin.
Fitted and hand crafted to fit most face cradles in the market, they are suitable even for those with fleeced under pad or memory foam.
Even though they may be more expensive than disposables (15 cents as compared to $3 per item), the London Linens Cotton Flannel Fitted Face Cradle Cover is durable for commercial use and is able to last many washes so the extra penny paid is not wasted.
Next, we are going to explore some of the nicher accessories - things that you may not think you need, or even know exist.
Let’s start off with the pregnancy market.
For those of you that specialise in prenatal massages, a prenatal massage table is probably what you’ll get when it comes to choosing the best massage table for your brand.
However, for those that want more flexibility in your clientele base, you may not want to buy a pregnancy massage table.
They are, after all, more expensive and heavier, not to mention that the choices available are rather limited. Yet, you will still want to be able to cater to them should you come across pregnant clients.
Which is why we have found the following items that will enable you to do just that - a few attachments here and there and voila, your pregnant clients can lie safely in comfort to enjoy a good massage.
You see, the difference between a non-pregnant and pregnant client lies mainly on the stomach/chest size, which is where you will need adjustments on your massage gear (table).
The Therapist’s Choice Pregnancy Full Body Bolster Package provides you with just that option, and more.
This package includes:
The combination of all these provides an ideal cushioning system for pregnant women, but really, it goes well for anyone else who can’t lie comfortably on their stomachs.
The kit provides just the right support at the right places regardless of being in a face-down or face-up position.
The supple cushions offer relief for stress and muscle tension, both of which are common symptoms among pregnant women.
By having this tool, your clients are able to remain comfortable and fully supported throughout the massage session, be it you are performing massage, physical therapy, or ankle and pregnancy massage.
We do have to say that it is not cheap though, and you will have an extra kit to carry along but if you have an existing massage table already, the Therapist’s Choice Pregnancy Full Body Bolster Package is a good piece to have to convert it into a pregnancy massage table.
And if you really think about it, it will still be cheaper than buying a full-on pregnancy massage table so we’d say this is a good solution to cater to both worlds.
We’re seeing quite a bit of Earthlite products here, aren’t we?
Told you since the beginning that they’re one of the most reputable manufacturers when it comes to massage table accessories.
This patented pregnancy massage cushion and headrest comes in two colours - black and teal - and is designed for people who can’t lie comfortably on their stomach.
The tapered 15” x 17” stomach recess provides ample supported tummy space, making it an ideal solution to those that are pregnant.
Not only that, it is also great for clients who have recently had breast surgery or suffer from lower back problems, as well as patients with bellies or large breasts to get the ultimate support during face-down massage treatments.
It is professionally constructed out of quality cushioning finished with outstanding workmanship.
To name a few, it uses Dacron padding recesses and is upholstered with EARTHLITE’s proprietary, commercial grade Natursoft upholstery that is buttery smooth so you can expect exceptional comfort and support from it.
The face rest is adjustable to allow for all shapes and sizes and the crescent cushion enables perfect positioning for the clients.
Many lay it on top of a massage table or on a mattress, alternatively, some use it as it is on the floor. Whichever way you use it is entirely up to you, as long as it feels comfortable for both you and your client.
Probably the only downside of this though is that it is bulky and not easy to pack. Incidentally, it’s not the best portability wise and it may be a bit too large for petite women.
Nevertheless, the Earthlite pregnancy massage cushion and headrest is a popular choice amongst healing professionals such as massage therapists, spas and medi-spas, chiropractors and physical therapists.
2. Massage Hot Stones
Yep, there is an alternative to providing heated massage besides using a massage table heating pad.
In fact, while they both emit heat, massage hot stones and massage heating pad work quite differently.
An electric hot stone massage warmer set that comes with a lightweight, energy efficient stylish storage/travel bag case that doubles as a stone heater oven, the Serene Life Portable Massage Stone Warmer Set is the epitome of convenience and functionality in one whole package.
This heated rock therapy system comes in 12 (6 large and 6 small) round shaped stones that are smooth and flat.
They are made of the volcanic rock type called basalt, which has a high silica and iron content and it is precisely this reason that they are chosen because they are able to retain heat well.
We’re talking about holding heat for 25-35 minutes straight without the need to recharge, THAT is about twice longer than many other stones.
Why you may need this is that the heated stone therapy massager set relieves pain caused by sprains and strains, which is why they are ideal for athletes.
They melt away stress to soothe muscle comfort, soreness and stiffness and is often offered as a therapeutic service at home care and spa centers.
The temperature is controllable digitally - the wired temperature controller features a digital LCD display with selectable temperature setting of 86-158 °Fahrenheit (30-70 °C).
Perhaps the biggest highlight and our most-loved feature is the travel bag that comes with it. As mentioned above, it doubles as a stone heater oven that can quickly heat the rocks up within 20 minutes.
That, and it comes with a car lighter power adapter that allows you to even heat them up while on the go, making it really convenient because now you can get them ready and all heated up while driving to the next client’s without any down time.
Alternatively, it comes with a power cable too for you to plug into the wall to heat the stones up.
The Serene Life Portable Massage Stone Warmer Set is not entirely cheap, though we’d say it’s worth every penny paid given all its amazing features. It works wonders on the tired body, and is to date an extra service that no client will complain.
The Zenstone Pro Waterless System, a hot stone kit well-known for its waterless technology, is another massage hot stone kit we would like to talk about.
You see, traditional hot stone therapy systems require gallons of water to be boiled in a large kettle-like appliance to heat the stones up but this brand here doesn’t require that at all (see what we mean when we say technology has evolved in this area?).
Because of that, it is much easier to use and is faster, cleaner and entirely portable. When we say faster, we mean you can get the stones heated up as fast as in 10 minutes.
Such rapid heating is made possible because there is no water to boil, thanks to its patented rapid waterless heating system.
The stones heat up to 130 F, which accordingly is the optimal temperature for hot stone massage based on expert research.
Once heated, the stones stay hot for 10 - 15 min, depending on the stone size and ambient temperature.
12 special precision-cut professional-grade stones called ‘gravity stones’ are included.
They are not your traditional basalt stones, rather, they are developed using material science from a variant of limestone which contains naturally-occurring calcium carbonate.
These have a beautiful natural grain to them and they heat up quicker and are able to hold heat longer. They are also fully compatible with massage oil.
It comes with what the brand called a ‘heatSHIELD’ outer casing - a stylish, cool-to-the-touch exterior outer casing that helps protect you from the high heat generated by the system during the warming process.
There is a push-button release on the front that locks the unit so that the stones can be stored inside for easy transport and maximum portability.
The Zenstone Pro Waterless System + 12 Gravity Hot Stones is so popular, there are many imitations in the market. Beware of these low-quality imitations as they may short-circuit or cause burns.
The Original comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee so you can rest well knowing you’re in safe hands with it.
3. Massage Table Case
Now, we know what you’re thinking - most (if not all, the good ones anyway) portable massage tables come with their very own massage table bag. Why on earth do I need to buy one again separately?
Yes, you’re absolutely right. Which is why we are not going to talk about massage table carrying case in the conventional sense.
Rather, have you heard of wheeled massage table case before? They are heaven-sent - trust us, your shoulders will thank you for that (especially for the petite ones)!
The Earthlite Massage Table Traveler Cart is by far the most popular massage table case cart that is well used by massage therapists across the world.
Understandably so, given the high quality used in the wheels and frame that make up the cart itself.
The frame is a sturdy steel structure powder coated with an anti-corrosion finish and the wheels are bigger with slick precision steel bearings to provide a steadier ride and easier stair climbs.
This is important, because you will be wheeling it across all kinds of terrain so it is vital that the wheels and frame do not give up on you easily.
It’s not just the materials, but this massage table carry case is ergonomically designed with your wellness in mind too.
Instead of your hands, the telescopic handles leverages the weight of your massage table onto the wheels so that your back and your table are protected. You can extend it to 43” too should it need be.
It comes with a wide strap too to hold your massage table securely in place because nothing’s worse than having your table sliding or falling off when you’re wheeling it across a busy street.
Even if you store your table in its carry case with all pockets filled with accessories, the strong and wide strap is able to hold them steadily in place.
When not in use, it can be folded with ease to stow away without taking up much space. The Earthlite Massage Table Traveler Cart is offered Lifetime Limited guarantee by the company so you know you’re in good hands with this one here.
Another massage table cart you can consider is the Alumobile Massage Table Cart.
Again, this is a cart specially designed for professional massage therapists so unlike those who may use a luggage cart to wheel their table around, this one here will hold your massage gears well and snug as it is made for it.
This cart has adjustable straps and a telescopic base, it fits portable massage tables of all sizes and brands and it will fit in your car boot due to its very small external dimensions.
Designed to be pulled along with supreme ease, this lightweight aluminium massage bed cart is easy to manoeuvre be it on public transport or on paved pathways thanks to its heavy duty ball bearing wheels that are bouncy, quiet and durable.
It is a 4 wheel base, which is great for stability on uneven surfaces and the two single swivel front wheels make it easy to turn and manoeuvre.
Unlike many of the other massage trolleys, there is no lifting force required to move your massage table. This in turn reduces the stress on your arms, wrists and back so you can put all your energy into the treatment itself.
Having been tested in London for the last 5 years with 100% success rate, the Alumobile Massage Table Cart is one we would recommend if you’re required to move around a lot. It is not the cheapest, however, it is one piece worth the investment.
Not a fan of a cart? You’ll love the Dr. LomiLomi Universal Massage Table Carry Case Bag with Wheels.
From afar, it looks just like your ordinary massage table carry bag - you know, those that come together with your portable massage table.
On a closer look, you will see four casters on its base designed to be pulled along with ease and THAT, is what makes all the difference.
With wheels, you do not need to carry the table over your shoulder anymore. Yet should there be a need, the well-cushioned ergonomic straps will ease the strain on your shoulder and you can even adjust the length to carry it cross-body.
And, both top and corner have dual handles so it is not as strenuous when you carry it (also protects the bag better as it reduces the chance of ripping as some single handle does).
But wait, there’s more to it - we won’t rave about it if it’s just four little wheels slapped on a simple bag.
The wheels are durable rubber coated multi-directional for easy rolling and most importantly, they are non-squeaking.
It is made of a premium waterproof Oxford fabric and it has multi-sized front pockets for all your accessories - massage bolsters, massage oils, your sheets, warmer pad, even personal items storage etc.
And the best thing? The Dr. LomiLomi Universal Massage Table Carry Case Bag with Wheels is the cheapest option out of all the massage carry bags we recommend here so it is affordable by many people.
It fits all folding massage table (maximum at L36”xH29.5”xW9”) and it has a rein-forced metal side snap-lock buckles and zipper hardware for secure carrying.
4. Hot Towel Cabinet
Last but not least, and this is certainly an extra service to consider, is the provision of hot towel to your clients before and after a massage session.
A hot towel can play a major role in the quality and comfort of a customer's experience by relaxing muscles and stimulating blood flow.
To offer such service, you will need a hot towel warmer first.
There are many choices you can consider but amongst all, we think the Elite Hot Towel Cabinet is the best towel warmer.
This one here is in a mini size and that should be enough (holds 12 facial-sized small towels) but if need be, it comes in a maxi version as well (double the capacity) for $30 more.
Why we like this one the best is because it contains an internal temperature control so that the unit will not overheat. This is what you will want to find in one because safety is really important.
Best of all, it is an insulated cabinet with padded heating element surrounding the whole of the internal walls so you get consistent heating constantly unlike those that rely on bulbs to heat which tend to burn out and as such, do not provide consistent heating.
A hot towel warmer is certainly not a necessity and it’s not so much for on-the-go massage therapists, but if you have a massage parlour or spa center, then we think this is an indispensable item to bring your service (and business) to the next level.
