TERRY TOWEL PREMIUM FITTED COUCH COVER

Massage Warehouse

Size Guide

Collections: Couch Covers

Category: couch cover set, couch covers, fitted couch cover

Type: Unknown Type

Vendor: Massage Warehouse



Before I tell you a bit more about our massage and treatment table premium terry towel couch covers I would love for you to first understand one of the important aspects of any fabric namely GSM. GSM means grams per square meter and means the weight of the fabric. Essentially, besides the type of fabric use, the fabric weight (GSM) is the most important aspect which determines the luxury feel of the fabric. For example you have probably heard of thread count in Egyptian cotton bed linen, the higher the count the nice and more luxurious they feel.

We first started stocking terry towel fitted couch covers for massage tables in 2004. Back then the couch covers were 160-180GSM. Guess what, everyone else is still stocking them!

We've grown as a trusted brand in the massage and complimentary healthcare industry to become a supplier of quality products at favourable prices. We are all therapists ourselves so aim to stock products we can afford ourselves but offering the highest quality available on the market.

With that in mind we have spent the last 2 years designing, manufacturing and testing our premium 275GSM terry towel couch covers.

Yes, you hear it - 275GSM! You won't find a terry towel treatment table couch cover as high in quality anywhere in the world. We do know of a bespoke service that manufactures a similar weight couch cover product but it is over 2.5 times the price of ours!

And we haven't stopped there. We've listened to our customers over the many years we have been fortunate to serve you and we've added the following features to our couch covers which you won't find anywhere else.

The covers are elasticated to wrap itself cosily around any shape massage table or treatment couch but we our premium covers also have ties underneath which tie in the middle to give a more secure and tidy hugged fit. 

Most premium massage tables and treatment couches now come with holes/slots in both ends of the treatment table. So we've added holes in both ends of the couch covers to receive a face cradle extension on one end and/or receive a treatment accessory in the other end such as a paper roll holder or length extension addition.

We then added a sleeve that drops down into the breathing hole in the treatment table on the covers that have the built in breath hole. This means the clients face never has to touch the inside of your breath hole. Most couch covers on the market just cover the top of the treatment table.

We love the new design and features of these premium fitted couch covers and we hope you will too. We've made them a a bit bigger to allow for shrinkage in the first wash which is a common occurrence with all type of terry towel.

Therapists are trained differently in the UK and USA. In the USA, therapists are taught to buy the highest priced couch possible, most times close to $1000. They are then trained to cover their couch with a fitted cover that stays on the couch pretty much all the time. The therapist then puts a second fitted couch cover on top of the first one which gets changed for each and every client. They don't use paper roll and each client gets a fresh clean fitted cover to lay on. Why do they do this? They buy one massage table for their career and because the upholstery is always protected they never have to buy a new one.

We'd love this trend to catch on in the UK but realise it's difficult to buy so many couch covers at once, especially when you are starting out. To help you, our fellow therapist, we've introduced a 4 for 3 purchase. If you have 4 treatments in one day you can have enough couch covers for one day and wash them each night or hopefully you can build up enough covers over time to maybe only do a wash once or twice a week.

Above, in the drop down box you can choose the cover with or without a breath hole and if you treatment couch or massage table has a face cradle extension you can buy a separate fitted face rest covers with the same premium terry towel and 275GS< which are excellent value in a pack of 4.

We recommend terry towel be washed at 30 degrees for a longer life but can be washed at 40 degrees. 

FEATURES:

  • 275 GSM terry towel VS industry standard of 160-180 GSM
  • Shaped breath hole option to fit all shapes of breath hole
  • Sleeve which drops down into the breath hole of the massage or treatment table to protect the vinyl from facial sweat and fluids and also offer a hygiene barrier to the client or patient
  • Holes in both ends to receive face cradle and accessory attachments
  • Ties in the underneath middle section of the couch cover to tie the cover in for a neat and tidy looking fit
  • Fits all treatment couches from 61-76cms (24-30 inches), including shaped and ergonomic couches because of the centre ties

AVAILABLE IN 2 OPTIONS:

1) Without a breathe hole in the fitted sheet.

2) With a breathe hole in the fitted sheet.

The fitted sheet also has holes in the ends to allow you to put the rods of your face cradle & other accessories through it as pictured below. Other accessories to go through the holes include the paper couch roll holder and the massage table length extender.

Massage Table Size Guide

Massage tables comes in many different shapes and size. It can be confusing for you, the customer, to choose the right one but we are here to help!

A lot of customers call us up after they have bought the wrong size massage table elsewhere and we would like to help you avoid this mistake. It normally goes something like this; they like the look of a picture of a massage table on a website, they like the low price and then they check the carrying weight is ok. If the carrying weight fits their needs they click add to cart and the new massage table turns up at their doorstep in a few days. They unfortunately assume all massage tables are pretty much the same width and size.

The standard size of a massage table is 28 inches wide (71cms) and 73 inches (185cms) long. One of the reasons many "lightweight" budget massage tables are so cheap is because

  1.  They are smaller in size (normally around 61cms wide) and as such have less materials
  2. They are sold by specialist retailers who also sell anything else they can import and turn a profit on. As such they just buy the cheapest massage tables they can find in China. They go for smaller sizes as they are cheaper.

Make sure the massage table is the right size for you and your clients as the narrow massage tables at 61cms can be very uncomfortable for anyone who isn't petite and many clients cannot relax with their shoulders and arms unsupported.

 

The Width of the Massage Table:

Almost all therapists choose the standard 28 inch wide massage table. All our massage tables are the same length so it is only the width and shape our customers need to decide on.

Your massage table should be wide enough to cater for the wide variety of shapes and sizes of your clients. It needs to be wide enough to comfortably accommodate your treatment style, while being narrow enough to ensure you don’t have to strain your own back during treatments.

Each therapist's postural training and ability is different, so only you will know what massage table width you can handle. We have spoken to therapists who are five feet tall and get the wider 30 inch massage tables, and we speak to six foot therapists who have back problems and go for a 25 inch wide massage table. Everyone is different.

Generally speaking, if you are of smaller stature, you may do better with one of the narrower 25-inch massage tables. If you're quite tall, or are particularly keen to offer your clients a very spacious experience, a 30-inch massage table might be more suitable.

If you are in doubt, see if you can go into your local training college and see whether the massage tables there suit you. However, there is another way to get a feel for what will work of you don’t have access to a couch when you are deciding:

Cut out a piece of cardboard to the dimensions of both sizes you are deciding between. Put it on top of the kitchen table and lean over it. Visualise a client lying there, and see which width will suit you and your client best.

measuring the width of a massage table


Make sure you can get close enough to the table that you can pivot at the waist and have your shoulders squared to the clients hips, with your hands parallel to the clients' spine. Working in this position will ensure an injury-free career, so it's an important factor in your decision.

The most popular massage table widths are 28 and 30 inches. We sell 25-inch massage tables but you should really only choose this width if you are shorter in height and having a wider massage table might put your own back at risk over the course of your career.

You can also choose the 25-inch if you want to have the lightest massage table possible. By reducing the width of the massage table, the weight is also reduced. Now, this can mean a trade-off of some client comfort, but this trade is often worthwhile if you are a fully mobile therapist and use public transport frequently, where saving a kilogram or two will make a difference to you over time.

 

The Height Of the Massage Table

Nowadays, almost all portable massage tables come with height adjustable legs. Whichever massage table you choose should come with a large height range to accommodate you, and to cater for a broad range of therapies.

A common height range of massage tables is between 60 to 80cm, and this height range should cater for everyone. To check which height you need your massage table to be at follow this rule of thumb:

1. Stand up straight with your hands by your sides. Clench your fists.
2. Measure the distance between the floor and your knuckles
3. This distance should equal the height of your massage table.
4. Add a few inches in height to allow for the body of the patient on the massage table.

The height of a massage table is usually only adjusted when different therapists are using the same massage table, or if you have a client that is outside the average size you normally treat. So for example, if someone with a lot of body depth comes for a treatment after an average size person, you may need to adjust the height a notch or two.

You should be able to adjust the height of a massage table in just 2-3 minutes. Even though you mightn't adjust the height very often, the faster the better when you do have to!

There are 2 types of height adjustment mechanisms found on modern massage tables.

1) Twisting knobs (found only on wooden massage tables):

If you are working with a wooden massage table, it is better to have two knobs on each of the four legs for greater strength and reliability. When buying online, make sure to check how many knobs are on the legs. Cheap massage tables often only have one knob, and when you raise the legs to the highest heights they are less stable and have been known to snap.

2) Telescopic push-buttons (found only on aluminium massage tables):

The mechanism to adjust the height of an aluminium massage table is much the same as the push-button method on aluminium crutches. It only takes a few seconds to adjust each leg, and the mechanism is very reliable. Check out the video to see how it’s done.

 

Massage Table Shape:

The following are the different shapes of massage tables on the market.

1. Rectangle shaped with square corners 

This is the traditional shape of a massage table and the one you are probably familiar with seeing. Our Combi-lite 3 in 1 and Affinity Portaflex are shaped like this.

2. Rectangle shaped with rounded corners

Same as no 1 above in every way except the corners are rounded. Does not affect function in any way, just a different design/look.

 

3. Hour glass shaped with gradual gradient 

A fabulous massage table innovation in recent years, which solves a lot of the problems around choosing the correct width is the hourglass shaped massage table.


This style of massage table is wider at the ends, and tapers somewhat at the middle. This provide a spacious and comfortable experience for your client (as the shoulder and feet area are 30 inches wide) without compromising your own posture and health, as the middle of the couch where you lean over is a much narrower 26 inches wide.Having recently upgraded to one of these hourglass massage tables myself, I can vouch that my working days are much more comfortable, and many of my clients have commented on the extra comfort from the wider shoulder area.

 

4. Hour glass shaped with sharp gradient
Same as point above but instead of the it gradually going from wide to narrow, the massage table changes quickly from normal width to narrow width so people of very short stature can get in close.
5. Oval Shaped

 The name says it all! There are no corners on the massage table. Therapists normally choose this for one of two reasons. They simply like the look of this massage table and it is aesthetically more pleasing in their treatment room and/or they find it easier to move around the massage table during the treatment without having to side step the corners. This is particularly handy when space is limited in your treatment room.
