When it comes to your client's comfort, you want to make sure you have the best massage table linens. This is what your client will be lying on and under for anywhere from half an hour to two hours. You do not want him to be feel uncomfortable, scratchy, or cold. The best linens are flannel. Flannel is extremely soft and will feel wonderful against your client's skin.

It is up to you what kind of massage table linens you purchase, but know that this can make or break your client's experience with you. I had a facial done once and it included a leg massage while masks were sitting on my face. The sheets were very thin and I was cold most of the time. I told the therapist, but there wasn't much that she could do. It is difficult for the client when she is uncomfortable. Some are too shy to ask for something else, and most just want to be cozy from the start.

Choose Your Massage Table Linens Carefully

It is in the therapist's best interest to have massage table linens made of flannel. Even if it is summertime and hot outside, spas and salons are usually cooler. You don't want to give a massage in hot weather. Your client will hardly have a good time if she is sweating profusely. In the same manner, you don't want her to be freezing cold. What person can let go of tension when he's trying to maintain body heat?

An alternative to flannel is terry cloth. This is another very soft linen. When choosing massage table linens, I would suggest one of these two. Your client will feel soft, warm, and cozy. Think of how you would want your experience to be and you will most likely make the right decision. You can also get light colors, to bring a little life to the room.
