Which recliner and accessories for reflexology in the spa or clinic setting
For the reflexologist working in a spa or clinic setting it is more likely that a massage couch will be used as pedicure chairs often don’t allow the feet to be raised sufficiently and in a spa or clinic setting other treatments will be offered and equipment needs to be multi-purpose. Some things to bear in mind when looking for a chair or couch:
- check whether the chair or couch is height adjustable not all chairs are
- if purchasing an expensive hydraulic model check the warranty and maintenance arrangements as these chairs are heavy and unless it can be maintained on site you may have a problem in future
- if purchasing a pedicure chair check that height of chair is adjustable (item 1) and also whether foot position can be raised high enough
- should be comfortable for client with sufficient padding as well as allow the therapist to work without strain
- if space is at a premium and rooms are multi purpose then a portable couch may be the best choice
- for couches – think about what you need from your couch:- do you want a separate head rest, adjustable back rest, heated couch top, memory foam topper..
Take a look at the range below – hover over the image for price comparisons. I’ve included a few expensive models just to show the range of options available but as suggested above it wouldn’t be advisable to purchase one of these without having full details of warranty and maintenance contracts.
The images above are just a selection from those available on Amazon to show the range of options – they may be out of stock as you read this page – but other similar models should be available.
