3Massage therapy supplies - what do I need?
There is a basic equipment list you should complete when starting career as a masseur.
Every masseur needs a massage table and/or a massage pad. You may also need a massage chair, especially if you’d like to provide chair massage services.
Massage lotions, oils and herbal compresses are part of your kit along with linens, blankets, a bolster, maybe even a heated pad. These are things that you will be using during a massage appointment. When you are busy you will go through several sheets a day. It is a good idea to have enough extras so you won’t find yourself out of fresh, clean linens when you need them.
Cleaning supplies are needed by every masseur. You need to keep your equipment and linens sanitized and clean.
It is important to formulate a marketing plan for your new business, this can include internet marketing as well as print and community marketing. You may need a website, a blog, and/or social media accounts to establish visibility, connections and new clients from online communities. We know RentMasseur.com is a great option for you.
As a budding masseur it is important to get your name out there and market your services. Have business cards made and carry several with you at all times, and most importantly keeping handing them out.
