When searching for quality massage sheets, it is important not only to choose sheets that will provide lasting performance, but also to select sheets that enhance the atmosphere of the treatment room for greater client relaxation and for better comfort. There are many different types of fabric to choose from, and there is a variety of colors to choose from as well. Finally, you should consider whether you need sheets alone, or if you would rather get massage table cover kits.
Weather and Climate
Basing your selection, at least in part, upon the weather or the climate is not a bad idea at all. If you live and work in an area with seasonal temperature changes, then you may actually need a few different types of massage sheets to keep your clients comfortable, no matter what the weather. Try heavy flannel massage table sheets for cold weather or for clients who need a bit of extra warmth. You can choose from cotton flannel, organic cotton flannel, or flannel made from soft, durable bamboo. For slightly less weight but for a cozy feeling, consider double knit cotton sheets. Cotton poly sheets or muslin massage table sheets are lightweight and ideal for summertime use or for use in warm or tropical climates.
Durability and Quality
While you can find very inexpensive massage sheets, keep in mind that these sheets need to be washed on a frequent basis. You will need to change massage sheets between clients, and depending on the size of your operation and the number of sets of sheets you keep on hand, your massage table sheets could end up being laundered several times each week. Low quality sheets have a tendency to become thin, to gather fabric "pills," or to shrink or become misshapen over time. On the other hand, good quality massage table sheets often improve with washing, becoming softer and silkier as time passes.
Most fitted sheets for massage tables are slightly oversized in order to accommodate different sized tables and to ensure they will fit over pads or massage table warmers. Most flat sheets for massage tables are correspondingly oversized to provide extra coverage to help keep clients feeling comfortable during massages and spa treatments. If you wonder whether a set of massage sheets will fit your table or be appropriate for your clients, read the product description carefully to ensure the sheets will be large enough before ordering.
By following these simple tips, you will make a wise investment in massage table sheets and your clients will enjoy enhanced comfort.
