Whether you work in a massage therapy office or a spa, using a hot towel cabinet will increase the value of a massage in the client’s mind. Hot towels can warm up the muscles, help the client relax, add a sense of luxury, and remove excess massage oil when the session is complete.
Types of Hot Towel Cabis
Hot towel cabinets are available in different sizes to fit your treatment room and the size of your practice. The smallest cabinets work well in small treatment rooms and for therapists who only see a few clients per day. Larger cabinets are best for multiple clients per day and for use in spas.
Using a Hot Towel Warmer
Once you get your hot towel cabinet ready for the day, you can leave it on until the end of the day, grabbing hot towels as you need them and replacing them with fresh, slightly dampened towels for later use.
Get your hot towels ready far enough in advance so that they will be ready when your first client arrives. Start by moistening the number of clean towels that you will need. They should be damp but not dripping wet. Use smaller towels (fingertip or washcloth) if you want to fit more towels in the cabinet. Roll the towels tightly, and line them up in the tray(s) inside the cabinet.
Close the cabinet door. Make sure the door is tightly sealed, with the condensation tray in place underneath the door.
Plug the hot towel cabinet into an outlet and turn on the power. The UV indicator light (if your cabinet includes one) should light up to indicate that the sterilization cycle is starting. The UV light will cycle on and off while the cabinet is in use.
End of Day Instructions
Once the cabinet reaches the correct temperature, it will sustain that temperature throughout the day. When your day is over, make sure you remember to remove any remaining towels from the unit and unplug the towel warmer. Leave the door open to allow moisture to evaporate.
