Couches

Porta-lite Delta II 11.5kg

This table is Krzys newly upgrade. Super light ( perfect for mobile work), super comfy but not too soft. All clients notice a difference and he had lots of compliments from them. If you do mobile work or want light portable table this your choice. Price range – £££

Oils

Biotone Gel

Krzys choice for massage oil/gel. The Advanced Lotion Formula is hypoallergenic, which for a massage therapist who can’t use the majority of products out there due to a particular oil they commonly use, is SUPER important. The glide is just right. It’s not sticky, doesn’t have a scent, does not stain sheets, client’s hair doesn’t mess it up when you work on their neck. Don’t need a lot just a few drops to have a good glide. Price range – ££

Lucy Bee Coconut Oil

This is a Sinead choice. Lucy Bee Coconut oil is a natural replacement for all processed oils, butter, and margarine. It’s raw, organic, Fair Trade and the perfect addition for healthy lifestyles. You can eat it, you can cook it with and you can rub it too. Small lovely if you are a fan of coconut fragrance. Superb for dry skin, absorbing really quickly, so you will have to reach it to the jar quite often. In room temperature or less, it tends to solidify. So make sure you have enough time to get ready somewhere warm before the first client.  Price range – ££
