The Benefits of Heating Pads vs. Table Warmers

How are Heating Pads Different from Table Warmers?

As the cold weather rolls in, it's time to provide clients with the comfort of a warm treatment table. Massage table warmers come in a variety of formats and a range of prices. The life of a table warmer can be extended by placing it on the table and then placing a flat sheet, like our new 190g Flannel Flat Massage Table Sheet, over top. This provides extra comfort for the client, and the sheets can be switched out after each treatment.

Heating pads and massage table warmers work on the principles of heat therapy, but it's important to note that they have different applications. Massage table warmers are like padded sheets that are placed on top of a massage table to provide gentle warmth and comfort to the client during a massage session. They are designed to withstand body weight and often come with adjustable temperature settings to meet the needs of different clients.

Heating Pads

Heating pads, on the other hand, are placed on specific areas of the body to relieve pain and muscle aches. Many come in different shapes and sizes and also have adjustable temperature settings. The lifetime of a heating pad can be extended by inserting inside a Vinyl Protective Heating Pad Cover when in use.

Both heating pads and table warmers use heat therapy to relax muscles, dilate blood vessels, and increase overall comfort, but they are not interchangeable.

Table warmers are designed to provide a comfortable surface for the client during a massage, while heating pads are targeted at specific pain relief. It's wise not to let a client lie down on a heating pad. Doing so may void warrantees, not to mention cause burns.
