The massage stone heater that you choose for your business will depend on what type of stone massage you plan to do on a regular basis. Heaters are usually offered in either a 6 quart or 18 quart size.
Spa Pro is a popular brand, sold by many massage stone companies and distributors of stones and stone supplies. It is rated high as it heats stones evenly and maintains a consistent temperature throughout the session.
The Spa Pro is also offered with your choice of 120 volt model for use in the USA and other select countries or the 230 volt model for use in most countries outside the USA.
If you live outside the U.S., you are encouraged to verify which voltage works in your country before purchasing.
The 6 quart heater was designed especially for heating massage stones. It is perfect for stones used in facials, manicures, pedicures, or reflexology, but also heats enough stones for a full-body massage session.
It has a porcelain coated removable water reservoir with an easy-to-clean non-stick finish, and a high-quality, professional stainless steal exterior.
The pre-heat setting heats the water quickly (pre-heat is 375 degrees Fahrenheit for this unit, so be careful), but, it does have an easily adjustable heat range that keeps the temperature where you want it, and 120 degrees to 125 degrees is best for hot stones.
The 6 Quart stone heater's outside dimensions are Height = 7inches, Length = 11inches, X Width = 15inches and Weight: 10 pounds.
This 6 Quart Stone Heater is one of the best, and will last for many years.
