Choosing the right Spa bed for your wellness center isn’t an easy feat. There are so many options and so many factors to take into account when making a decision. What is the bed going to be used for? Who’s going to be using it? Does it fit into my aesthetic? To help you choose among the wide variety out there, here is a small guide to help you.
Probably the most crucial question to ask yourself when choosing a Spa bed is what will it be used for? Make a list of all the different treatments that will be done on the Spa bed and choose a chair that will adapt to all (or most) of them. The great aspect about Lemi equipment is that the Spa beds are adaptable and one can be have a variety of uses. Take the Aemotio Basic, for example, it can serve up to 7 different functions! Depending on the treatments you offer you might need more than one type of Spa bed, but you will be surprised to what length one Lemi Spa bed can go!
The space that you have available is going to be the defining factor for the size. The Spa bed must fit into the treatment room with enough space for the practitioner to maneuver around the bed. So taking into account the limitations of your available space here are a few tips to choosing the right size bed:
The height of the bed will be determined by personal preference and ergonomics of the practitioner who will be working at said bed as well as the type of treatment. The height of the majority of Spa beds can be adapted, so you will most likely have a range of motion of around 10 inches.
The length of the bed will depend on the type of client that you usually have. To ensure that you will be able to accommodate the highest number of clients, you will probably want to choose the longest bed that can fit in your space. The average Spa beds range from 5’9 to 6’3, the most common being 5’9. If you are struggling with the length, pick a Spa bed that has a headrest, as most of them have some mobility and can give you a buffer of 7 to 11 inches.
The average width of a Spa bed is 27 to 30 inches wide. Of course, logic says that the wider the bed the more comfortable it will be for the client. However, as with the height, less so for the length, the width will most likely depend on the size of the practitioner. A Spa bed that is too wide can cause the practitioner discomfort and back problems due to overexertion.
The comfort level of the Spa bed will mostly depend on the thickness and material of the mattress. Most Spa beds are made out of foam. The quality of the foam doesn’t depend so much on the thickness, but on it’s density. The denser the foam is, the more comfortable and durable it will be to use. The way to check the density of the foam would be to press your hand into the mattress and see how long it takes for the foam to return to it’s original shape.
The slower the return, the lower the density. In terms of thickness, 2 inches of high-density foam will provide an adequate level of comfort. However, foam isn’t the only material used for Spa beds.
At Lemi, you can choose your mattress with:
● 3.5-inch high-density foam mattress: perfect for energetic massages.
● 4.7-inch high-density foam mattress: for extra comfort (Lemi’s standard thickness)
● 6-inch super soft memory foam: for your most exclusive clients.
● Water mattresses: compromised of 10 separated cushions.
