Couch roll is essential for any therapist, whether you are a massage therapist, physiotherapist or sports therapist then you'll likely have a therapy couch or massage couch and these couches need to be protected.
Couch roll not only protects your treatment surface, but it also provides comfort and hygiene for your clients
What is couch roll?
A couch roll is essentially just a roll of paper towels that is big enough to cover your treatment couch or massage couch. It is disposable so it is usually changed between clients or if multiple treatments are provided.
There are alternatives to couch roll, some therapists might just use a couch cover, towels or wipe down the table/couch between treatments but generally, couch roll is used as it's the best option
What is couch roll used for?
As mentioned earlier, couch roll benefits both the therapist and the client because the treatment table or couch is protected from friction, massage oils or in some cases blood.
This also allows the therapist to save time when cleaning as the couch roll is disposable and easily changeable.
Your clients will probably prefer that you use couch roll because it is a lot more hygienic and comfortable for them so couch roll means happy clients and this makes a therapist's job a lot easier.
What are the different types of couch rolls?
We sell a range of different couch rolls, the main difference that you will find is the thickness and quality of the paper used for the couch roll.
All of our couch rolls are double-ply but you or your clients might find that some types of couch rolls are more comfortable than others.
Our more affordable options are made from 100% recycled material so although they may not be as comfortable as the more costly options; they are more sustainable and eco-friendly.
Why should I use couch roll compared to alternatives?
This is a commonly debated question in various industries that use couch roll. The important thing to note is that you don't have to use couch roll if you think alternative methods work better for you
It is however called hygiene roll for a reason, it offers the most hygienic experience for both you and your clients while also protecting your therapy couch or massage couch.
In the beauty and salon industry especially, couch roll is often substituted with towels and although this might save you money in the long-term, towels are more high maintenance as they aren't disposable.
Couch covers and towels also just aren't as useful as couch rolls when it comes to reducing friction and stopping clients from sliding around all over your massage table or therapy table.
You may think towels or couch covers are a more sustainable option but all of our couch rolls are made using 100% recycled material
Also, the laundry involved in keeping towels clean actually has a bigger impact on the environment because they have to be washed so regularly.
