Design your Massage Therapy
Room to keep the fees
A successful massage therapy practice begins with
a well-designed massage room. Part of the client’s
massage experience is the atmosphere itself, so it
is vital that your room layout helps clients feel
safe and relaxed. In turn, you can do your job
more effectively. Here are some ideas on how to
design your massage therapy room while keeping
your fees low.
Furniture for a Massage Therapy
The massage table is the most important piece of
equipment for your massage therapy room. It
needs to by disinfected, withstand the weight of
any customer by keeping him save and so much
more. The Table becomes the centre point of the
room as well. Massaging is hard work and may
you already notice what it`s all about, follow-up
costs will arise. So, no matter what you start with,
keep in mind, heavy electrically not only height-
adjustable tables make the work easier. They even
save the masseur himself from health problems
and support you to serf costumers over a longer
period of time. So, if your business goes on profit,
two strong persons will carry a massage table into
your room which will need a power connection
that you won't trip over.
You will also need a space to place a client’s
belongings. You can provide a comfortable chair
that clients can sit on and remove their shoes and
clothes. Clients can also leave clothing, purses,
and other items there during the session. Or, you
can hang hooks for clients to place their clothes
on. You might also want to provide a bowl where
clients can place any small items, like jewellery or
spare change. It needs to by disinfected as well as
cleaned so keep an eye on the materials you are
using in order to safe time if your business goes
on profit, costumers walks in.
Storage for a Massage Therapy Room
An effective massage room layout should be well-
organized and cluttered-free. Have enough
storage space to ensure that equipment, supplies,
and linens can be neatly tucked away and out of
sight. When clients enter your room for a
massage, they should not be overwhelmed by
equipment and supplies everywhere.
At the very least, you should have shelves in your
room that can store materials you will need
throughout the day. Most items in the room
should be tucked away in closed storage, but open
shelving is useful for some objects. You can
display items you often need, like essential oils
and lotion, on an open-shelf unit. This will create
easy access for you and also serve as decoration.
Other items, like larger equipment and bulk items,
can be stored outside the room.
When deciding on a storage unit, you should
account for the size of your massage room. You
will need to fit a massage table, a comfortable
chair, and potentially a sink and counter in
addition to storage. It is important to choose a
storage unit that does not overwhelm the room.
Lighting for a Massage Therapy Room
The environment is part of the client’s experience,
and lighting plays a significant role in setting your
client’s mood. Soft, warm lighting can help your
client feel relaxed as soon as they enter the room.
You can achieve this effect by using lighting from
Windows also play a prominent role in lighting. If
you have windows, you should hang adjustable
blinds so that you can darken the room when
Sound for a Massage Therapy Room
You should consider sound when deciding on the
perfect room for your massage therapy practice.
There should not be noise, such as traffic or
voices, coming into your massage room from
outside. These sounds could pull your client out of
their experience, making the massage less
effective. Choose a massage therapy room located
in a secluded, quiet location.
Once you decide on a room, you can then decide
what kind of music you want to play. You can ask
the client what kind of sound they prefer before
their session. Soothing music or ambient sounds
can help the client relax, which enhances their
experience. Just make sure that the music is not
too loud or distracting.
Scent for a Massage Therapy Room
Similarly, to sound, scent plays a large role in
setting the tone for your client’s experience. It is
best to avoid highly fragrant or artificial scents.
These might be irritating and distracting to the
client. Instead, opt for candles or a diffuser that is
scented with essential oils. If you are using
candles, make sure they are in a place where you
can not bump into them. Lemon, lavender, and
rosemary are good essential oil scents for
Decoration for a Massage Therapy
When it comes to decorating your massage room,
less is always more. This will keep your space calm
and your fees low.
Paint the room with a color that supports a
relaxed mood. Neutral earth colors like cream,
beige, tan, or gray can promote a calm
environment. Subdued blues and greens can be
calming as well. Due to today's technologies, you
can integrate minimal parts of almost every colour
into the lighting with ceiling lamps and always
adapt them to the circumstances.
Wall Art and Plants
In general, you should keep wall art to a
minimum. Too much wall art can be distracting
and overly stimulating to the client. If you hang
wall art, choose a minimal piece with a calming
effect. In addition, opt for natural finishing
touches like seashells, bamboo, or crystals.
Anatomy or reflexology charts could also make for
suitable wall art. Lastly, indoor plants can elevate
the space as long as they do not clutter the room.
As a massage therapist, you stand for most of the
day, so it is important to choose a floor that is
supportive. Fabric, wicker and wood floors provide
more comfort and support than tile. But reminder,
wood floors and so on absorbing oils, fats and
bodily residues. Depending on the treatment,
customers are also barefoot. The disinfection and
well-being of the customer is in your
responsibility. Even more, it`s your business
where you are called professional. Tiles offer
sustainable hygiene so a non-slip tile with
underfloor heating is may the best choice,
otherwise you can help yourself with washable,
small carpets. Even without small carpets, choose
the washing machine big enough. Keep the
washing machine it nearby as close as possible
outside the background noise. Whatever you
decide, the floor is a very important decision as
the massage table and will have a huge impact on
how to handle the workload.
Stick to your theme
When you decorate your massage room, it is best
to stick to one theme. Do not paint your walls pink
if you have wall art of a mountainous landscape
and play calming nature sounds. Being consistent
lets your patients know what to expect.
What else to think about
The massage room is not the only infrastructure
isn’t it. Here are a few key words: appointment
booking, cash register, laundry, customer
reception, toilet, waiting room for the customer or
would you prefer a waiting room for the masseur
as we do?
When it comes to designing the perfect massage
room, there are a lot of difficult decisions to make.
Following guidelines can help make planning
easier and set you (and your room) up for a
