Choosing the Best Face Cradle and Face Pillow for your clients
A face cradle, also known as a headrest, is an essential attachment for a massage table and has a lot to do with the experience of the client's session. It is designed to accommodate the client’s head while they are facing down on their stomach during treatment. They are typically u-shaped and come in various styles and materials, which can sometimes make it difficult when it comes to decide which one to purchase. They also come in two parts; the face cradle platform and the face pillow.
What kind of headrests does Earthlite offer:
The dowels of all three platforms measure 8" on center and fit all our massage tables.
We still offer our Stronglite Vintage Platform for holes that are 11" apart with 1/4" metal dowels.
Choosing a Face Pillow
Most if not all face pillows are u-shaped and they come in a variety of materials. The material is an important feature to take into consideration when choosing a face pillow. Memory foam seems to be the most popular stuffing material because it increases comfort and gives a more spa-like experience, as well a mix of Memory Foam with other foam is available. Our Memory Foam is CFC free, made from temperature-sensitive viscoelastic foam, and is the most comfortable. One thing to keep in mind is that the type and quality of the foam and the upholstery type determine the price point.
