  3. What Color Massage Table Should I Buy?

    What Color Massage Table Should I Buy?

    The answer is two-fold. Massage therapists should choose a color that 1) they like, and 2) complements theroom they are in or the general look of their practice. Picking something you like is pretty self-explanatory. The bit about ‘complementing’ can be a little more complex. It can mean that if other tables in a massage therapist’s spa or office are one color, it might behoove the therapist to remain consistent and purchase new tables upholstered in that color.It can also mean simply matching a massage table to the décor of a particular room. This doesn’t have to be a perfect 100% color-match, but simply a complementary “look.” If your spa is, for example, decorated in understated neutral hues, a bright purple massage table might not be the color for you.

  7. What Makes A Good Facecradle?

    I overheard a conversation recently in which the merits of facecradles were discussed. While I, of course, knew that some facecradles were better than others and had a general idea as to the elements that make some more technologically innovative than others, I wasn’t prepared for the complexity of the discussion. So, what makes a good facecradle? Here’s what I walked away from the conversation with (the super condensed version, at least):

    What's Going On? My Table isn't Flat!

    I hear it all the time: My new massage table isn't lying flat! It didn't completely unfold. Is it defective? In a word: No. Well, at least not most of the time. There are, of course, incidents of defective tables out there, but I would argue that in almost all cases, a new table lifting slightly in the center is a result of one of two things: improper opening or a twisted cable.

In an effort to help you avoid risks in your business, I've put a list of oh-so-crucial reminders together.
