Choosing massage table covers should be done carefully. Whenever you need to choose fabrics that will come in contact with customers it is important to think about possible side effects resulting from customer allergy. You also need to choose massage table covers that are comfortable for customers, will feel luxurious on the skin, and will dress well despite repeated washes and cleanings. Some of the fabrics that massages, spa owners and massage clients highly recommend for coverage are:
Cotton is the most common fabric for covers. Straight cotton covers are soft, comfortable and withstand repeated washes. Cotton covers can be purchased in many colors, although there are customers who may be sensitive to chemical colors, so consider using plain white or using covers that use natural plant colors if you want colored covers. No matter what type of fabric you use to cover tables, make sure you always use a chemical, odorless detergent to wash them. If you are environmentally conscious you can use organically grown cotton fabric.
Prestigious massage therapists often like to use silk massage table covers. Silk can be harvested in a lively and environmentally friendly way, so if these values are important to you, look for covers made of silk that are harvested responsibly. Silk is very soft, but some people do not like the sensory feel of silk and may find that the smoothness of silk is a distraction. If you want to use silk covers, you should keep alternative covers on hand for customers who may not like silk. Many customers say that the use of silk covers adds to the pampering of the massage. If you use oils or gels frequently in your massage, be warned that silk can stain and notice very easily.
Cashmere wool is super soft and warm, and is also a luxurious luxury fabric like silk. All of this natural fabric maintains warmth, so if you use a heating pad with a cashmere cover the table will stay warmer for a long time thanks to the conductivity of the wool. Cashmere is relatively easy to clean and because cashmere is so soft and warm massage table covers made of cashmere are great for massage therapists who practice in environments with cold winters.
