Welcome to my blog everyone. My name is Joan Templer, and I am the manager of a successful netball team. I am a firm believer in combining excellent coaching skills with physical and psychological therapy to produce the best players possible. One of the most important aspects of our team preparation is ensuring that players have access to quality massage services. Over the years, I have seen considerable evidence that regular massage helps reduce injury recovery time and relaxes players so that they perform at their best. Of course, you don't have to be a sportsperson to suffer from stress or injuries. For example, many office workers are under daily pressure and gain various aches and pains from hunching over desks. I have started this blog to sing the praises of regular massage and explain the different techniques available. Please browse and I hope your life can be stress-free.
As a licensed massage therapist, you probably already know that to go out on your own and start your own business, you'll need to be mobile. This means having your basic tools like a massage table and oils. That's only the tip of the iceberg though. If you want to start your own mobile massage therapy business, there are other must have tools you need to consider. Here are three of them and what you need to know about purchasing them for your business.
Travel Style Laundry Bin
One of the things you may not think about when considering opening your own mobile massage therapy business is the laundry. Consider that for every client you have you will need clean towels and drop clothes. You will need towels for the client, yourself, and to clean up any messes or spills. You will also need towels to wipe down your massage table and to handle clean-up following the session. Having a travel style laundry bin for your vehicle will make keeping the dirty towels and clean towels in their own area easy so they don't contaminate each other before the next appointment.
Natural Sanitizer and Cleaning Supplies
Speaking of cleaning up after a session and keeping everything safe and sanitary, you will also need to have a natural sanitizer and some cleaning supplies. Remember, you can't just grab the first cleaner that you see. You may have clients with severe allergies to various cleaning supplies and chemicals. With that in mind, you should consider purchasing natural based or organic cleaning items for your massage tables and anything your client may come in contact with. You can also ask your clients if they have any allergies you should know about. This can help narrow down which cleaning supplies may be the best option for you and your clients.
Another consideration for your mobile massage therapy business is having a portable workstation. You may think that the massage table is all you need, but having a portable workstation can be ideal for giving you an area to lay out towels, oils, and supplies for each client. You can find these types of portable options in most business supply or massage supply stores. They generally look like suitcases and have rollers to make portability easier.
These are only three of the must have massage therapy tools to consider for your mobile business. If you think you are ready to start your supply list, visit your local massage therapy store or company, like Na's Massage Therapy, for pricing and ideas.Share
