Massage Must Have: Bolsters!

Bolsters help clients get comfortable and relax so you can give a better treatment. Bolsters are used to support clients, provide comfort, and aid the therapist by giving them access to the body. Choose from a variety of sizes, colors, and styles to meet the needs of every therapist, every client, and every treatment!

Use large round bolsters placed under the knees while a client is in the supine position to take the pressure off the lower back. Smaller round bolsters or half-round bolsters work well under the ankles and a small half-round bolster placed under the neck helps support the natural curve of the neck and gives therapists better access to the shoulders. Bolsters placed under the mid-thoracic area help keep pregnant clients or clients that have trouble breathing while in the supine position, in a more comfortable semi-reclined
position.

Take a look at some of the popular options and sizes below.

Jumbo – Full Round 9″ x 26″ by Stronglite

The Jumbo Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. Great to support your client under the knees, ankles or use for side posture support.

Full Half Round Bolster by Earthlite

The Full Half Round Bolster is a foam-filled bolster with zippered outer case and a strap handle. It provides extra comfort and support and also helps to relieve muscle strain.

Comfort Bolster by EarthLite

The Comfort Bolster is a foam-filled bolster. It provides extra comfort and support for women’s breasts and helps to relieve muscle strain. The Comfort Bolster is an alternative to ordering a table with a breast recess option as it serves a similar purpose. It can be used with any massage table.

Remember, your clients are paying for comfort, make sure you have everything you need to ensure they have the best experience possible. That way, you know they will be back!

Cold Hands and Your Sales

As a perpetually cold person, having someone touch my skin with cold hands is startling and uncomfortable.

Any time I received a massage and the therapist had cold hands, that was the last time I went there. Harsh, I know, but true. That initial jolt of cold when the opening effleurage started, would amp every nerve in my body up and I would spend the rest of the time trying to get back to a relaxed state. It ruined the massage for me.

Do you have clients who are sensitive to cold? Are your clients coming in for any sort of treatment that may cause relaxation? Do you simply want to provide the most comfortable and memorable experience for each of your clients?

Bottle warmers are such an easy and effective way to keep lotions and oils at the perfect temperature to have your clients breathing sighs of relief the moment it hits their skin. From single bottle warmers all the way up to four bottle capacity, you’ll always be ready to go.

Warm Fingers are Happy Fingers!

Few things make me more uncomfortable than being cold. Most spas and salons pay careful attention to this detail with warming blanks in treatments, checking the water temperature before a hair rinse, etc. Somehow though, the warm comfort idea escapes many manicurists. Manicure dishes ofen have cool water in them, lotions are not often warmed, acetone and solvents evaporate and make the skin cold too. Brrrrrrrrrhhhhh!!!

There is a simple solution though… for UNDER $3!!! The Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro is soooooo simple, but soooooo effective! Specially designed for warming water, lotion, cuticle oil or acetone. The bowl consists of two parts, the outer container and the inner manicure bowl. The outer container is filled with hot water then locked into place to prevent leaking. Heat from the hot water warms up the contents of the inner bowl –water, lotion, oil or acetone — anything that is in the well of the inner manicure bowl.
Soooooo Nice!!! Ergonomic comfort design contours to the hand. Measures: 4-1/4″L x 3-1/4″W x 2″Deep.
Pretty neat, eh? Make your clients happier for less than $3. Order a Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro for every manicure station today!

Massage Oil: Warm or Cold?

Personally, the feeling of warmed massage oil is one of my favorite things. As a massage therapist with perpetually cold hands, having warmed oil was a need. There is nothing worse for a therapist and the client, than a cold hand to start the massage. It’s startling to the client and kills the relaxation process before it starts.

Something as simple as an bottle warmer like the ProMaster Massage Oil & Lotion Warmer can make all the difference in the world clients. Even if you don’t suffer from cold hands, many clients will simply love the feel of warm oil on their skin!
