We use electric blankets all year round when necessary. You can buy expensive ones from Beauty Express or Ellisons etc. but we just use regular ones from Argos, which I'm sure are fine. As with all your electrical equipment they need to be PAT tested every year or just buy new ones, they're quite cheap!
Its a nice bit of luxury for the massage when the towels and the bed is warm...
I bought a massage table with a heated top, which is great and clients love it..
Thanks Jack portable Massage couches, Massage couches
My clients love the heated underblanket. A bit too much infact; try getting them off the couch...
I was a bit too apprehensive of using a domestic product in a commercial environment but SalonServe do one for around £35 which is a steal as most professional ones cost a fortune. Had mine about 3 yrs now and still going strong. One of my best buys ever!
This works really well as some clients have their treatments in downstairs rooms that tend to be cooler. It is no hassle really, just like carrying an extra blanket and the cord is usually long so easy to reach a plug. :hug:
I recently bought an electric blanket for my couch for massages etc keep clients toasty warm.It was a cheapish one from a hardware store but i couldnt really see what differance an expensive one specific for beauty would do.
I was so pleased until i tried i tried to do my first treatment and im getting mini shocks from it but clients dont feel it.Its like a buzzing in my hands mainly when i make initial contact.
Needless to say i havent used it since.I used to work with these blankets (expensive) in a spa and never had this problem.Im wondering if its because its on a metal elactric couch.i cant work it out.
Has anyone else had this or got any ideas?
