Couple Massage Workshop – Items You Might Need

If you booked your couple massage workshop you might want to go ahead and buy the items you need to do massages at home.  Over half of our students either already have a massage table or they are planning to get one right away after the workshop…

Get Your Massage Table

Right now – having a massage table is not an absolute pre-requisite for booking your training, but it will be soon.  Tables are inexpensive and really is a game-changer when it comes to you continuing to want to work on each other…

We have found that the couples who took the time to purchase a portable massage table prior to their class continued to do massages for years after their initial training.  Why?  Because trying to keep doing massages on a bed or floor can get old after a while.  It is much easier to simply keep your massage table in a closet or under the bed until you need it.  A few of our couples even created their own little massage room!

What to Look for in Your Massage Table

What to look for in a massage table for your home?  You simply need (1) a working weight of at least 300 lbs; (2) a padding thickness of at least 2 inches; and (3) the table needs to say “portable” so it can be folded up for storage.  Many couples simply keep their table in a closet or up against a wall until they need it.

Items Needed to Go With the Table

You will need a few items to go with your massage table.  Of course, any of these are optional.  However, most of our couples who purchased their own table asked us so we decided to make it a part of this article.

Linens – We use twin or full size flannel sheets for our clients because they are super soft, warm, and are easy to care for.  Check out all the nice colors of flannel sheets.

Table warmer – Your table warmer will make a huge difference in your enjoyment when getting a massage.  It is the number one thing our clients notice when they get on our tables other than how soft it is!  Just remember two things:  (1) do not fold it because with most table warmers this will result in an error message.  The tiny coils are sensitive to severe folding (better to gently roll it up for storage); and (2) it is better to get one that is NOT fitted.  Here are some OPTIONS for you.

Top blanketIf your home or apartment tends to be cool, you may want to use two sheets plus a blanket on top so whoever is on the table getting worked on is not being distracted by being too cold.  You can simply use a blanket you already have at home or find a blanket specifically for your special couple time together.

Neck roll – You can simply take a hand towel and roll it up to use under the neck.

Bolster – Your can purchase a bolster or you can simply take a large bath or sheet towel and roll it up to put under your partner’s feet or knees – depending on if they are prone or supine on the table.  If you wish to purchase your own bolster GO HERE.

Items You May Want to Set the Mood for Massage at Home

This is the fun part!  I emphasize in the class how important it is to make your massage times together special.  For many couples who have young kids, giving each other a massage is an automatic DATE NIGHT AT HOME kind of thing!  It is inexpensive, may not require a babysitter, and is most of all – MEMORABLE.

But, overall, you just want to put a little effort into creating a nice ambiance and soothing environment.  So here are some ideas to get you started:

LED Candles – When it comes to candles it is best to use mostly LED candles and only one scented candle in a room.  For one thing – if you use too many scented candles the fragrance can become overpowering.  LED candles are safer in case you forget about them.
