Padding Options For Leg Cushion
padding is designed for therapists who work primarily with a senior /
pregnancy / injury based clientele. Comfort is the primary concern, and
the therapist is not worried about the energy absorption abilities of
the cushion itself. For sports / deep tissue work, we recommend the firm
Leg Cushion Padding.
This padding is designed for therapists who work primarly with a healthy / athletic clientele. Also, for the therapist who wants to utilize deep tissue / sports related types of therapy where high levels of touch based pressure is applied to the legs, and the desired effect is not to have that energy absorbed by the cushions themselves. For pregnancy, senior, or injury based massage practices, we recomment the plush Leg Cushion Padding.
