The ultimate checklist for your spa

Welcome to the Topic “The ultimate checklist for your spa ”

The spa industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century - these days, it seems as if everyone wants to open their own spa! Unfortunately, not everyone can follow through with their dreams. Even those who give it a shot often face too many administrative, financial and managerial problems to continue running their spa and surviving in the industry.

You're probably already aware that not everyone is capable of running a business, and one of the primary reasons for that is the lack of planning. Few people want to bother themselves with the organization and planning even though these are vital aspects and form the foundation of your business, no matter the industry. The same goes for the spa industry as well.

If you're looking to start your own spa business and don't know where to get started with the equipment and the products, this is a guide for the essential items you need to have in your spa!

A massage area

At the core of every great spa is a fantastic massage area. This area includes bulky equipment but is not limited to:

  • A hydraulic chair for the masseuse
  • An esthetician table
  • A trolley for the various machines.

Besides these, a massage area will also need electrical equipment so the masseuse can work efficiently and effectively:

  • Lamps
  • Massage tools
  • Clean towels

The quality of these products will directly affect customer satisfaction, which will ultimately determine your profit, so make sure you buy the best possible equipment.

Treatment zones

Besides massages, spas also offer facial and body treatments. While some spas may exclusively provide only one of those services, most offer both. In that case, here's what you'll need:

  • An electric chair for facials and body treatments
  • A hydraulic chair for the masseuse
  • A magnifying lamp for effective treatments
  • Beauty machine: Multifunctional or mono-treatment

The above-mentioned list comprises the heavy-duty equipment - depending on the services you offer, these could vary, so make sure you do your research beforehand. Other than these, you'll also need facial and body treatment products to treat your clients. Make sure you have some samples and extras on hand, which the clients can purchase on their way out!

Manicure and pedicure area

Another essential section of your spa is the manicure and pedicure area. This area should have the following:

  • A comfortable treatment chair
  • A hydraulic chair for the manicurist
  • UV-light for easy treatment

In addition, you'll need nail products such as clippers, buffers, oils, nail paints and removers. If your spa also offers nail art, you may need additional tools for that as well.


Now that the significant areas of your spa are covered, you may require some miscellaneous products and equipment such as:

  • Hydraulic chairs for your staff
  • Sterilization units
  • Organization carts and trolleys for tools
  • Additional lamps
  • Interior decor items to make a calming environment

These items are also necessary for operating your spa. The spas furniture and decor should also reflect the image you are trying to portray: gentleness, calmness and peace.
