Massage Therapy On-the-Go - Equipment and up-sell ideas
The Massage Therapy profession has always been growing and evolving, but due to the challenges, limitations and implications of the Covid-19 pandemic, therapists have needed to rethink their practice even more. Mobile massage therapy has gained more popularity during this time as many therapists and clients feel more comfortable connecting at home or in a small clinic and they prefer to work with practitioners they know. Due to social distancing and other restrictions during the pandemic, many spas are functioning at limited capacities. While spas have had demand from clients, they have also been challenged with staffing of therapists and they are in great need right now and are looking to hire more massage therapists. But for those that are preferring to work on your own and in your client’s homes, we would like to provide an overview of products that support the mobile life, and which make it easier for therapists to travel to your clientele. And there are several ways therapists can create add-on value and boost income per session by enhancing your massage treatments and also recommending home care programs for your clients
Earthlite offers a multitude of high-quality products to aid in portable massage therapy. Here are some of our “must haves”:

These items can be added to your treatment to enhance the therapy and they can also be recommended to your clients, for self-care practice at home and this is in turn provides added income to your sessions.

Our intention is to deliver the best results in massage, spa treatments and home care rituals.
