Wholesale Supplies for Massage Therapists
Dunbar Medical has been providing massage therapists with the important medical supplies they need for their clinic for over 20 years. We provide superior-quality massage therapy supplies and we do so at competitive rates. If you’re unsure of how to pick the best office supplies for your massage therapy clinic, our knowledgeable team of medical supply professionals have put together some helpful tips that can be found below.
Choosing The Right Massage Table
Probably the most important tool in the armoury of a massage therapist is the surface on which the massage is performed, i.e. the massage table. It should therefore be the first item you consider for your massage therapy supplies list. Depending on the way you conduct your services, there are two main types of massage tables to choose from first – stationary and portable. Generally, stationary massage tables are made from wood while portable ones are made from aluminum for easy transport. At Dunbar, we offer high-quality massage tables from industry-recognized brands such as Chattanooga.
When choosing a massage table for your practice, the most important thing to bear in mind is the table dimensions, i.e. length and width. Height is also important to the comfort and well-being of the therapist. The table surface should be comfortable for the client to lay on. Choose a table with thick, dense and comfortable padding for optimal client comfort.
At Dunbar Medical, we understand the importance of going above and beyond for our clients. For this reason, we offer massage therapist supplies that can allow you to do the same for your patients. Additional products to consider include table accessories such as headrests, leg rests, arms shelves and side extensions. To further increase your client’s comfort, you should also consider table warmers, pillows and sheets.
Choosing The Right Massage Gels & Lotions
Massage gels and lotions play a big role in the overall massage experience for your patient. At Dunbar Medical, our massage gels help you to target your patients’ tight muscles with deep contact and will also provide the appropriate amount of friction for an effective massage. Additionally, our massage creams will provide optimal skin softening and moisturizing to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. Our massage gels and lotions come from industry-leading brands such as Chattanooga, Biotone and Eco Med.
Must Have Massage Therapy Supplies For Your Clinic
While massage tables and massage gels are a critical part of running your massage therapy clinic, there are many other important supplies that you will need for your clinic. Take a look at our list of must-have massage therapy supplies below
Topical analgesics provide valuable pain relief for clients who are undergoing intense massage therapy. We carry many reliable and trusted brands of topical analgesics including BioFreeze, SafeCross, Flexall and more.
Electric & Manual Massage Tools
You can choose either electrical or manual tools. Electrical tools are available in both percussive and electrical forms. You can use them to apply constant heat and vibration to your clients’ sore areas. The most common manual massage tools include balls, rollers, hot stones, and the Tiger Tail Original Massage Stick. These tools will provide you with additional options to provide a more comprehensive massage to treat your clients’ aches, pains and stiffness. They will also be useful in breaking the monotony of a standard hands-only massage.
Disinfectants & Cleaners
Your massage therapy practice will also need reliable supplies of high-quality disinfectants and cleaners to keep your clinic clean and sanitary. As you can see below, we provide a wide selection of these products from top brands including Alliance, Germosolve, SafeCross and more.
