10 Best Face Cradle Covers For Your Reiki Table

A face cradle cover is also called a face rest cover, a face pillow cover or a headrest cover. Whichever you’d like to call it, they all refer to the same thing. Like a massage table sheet, the headrest cover’s task is to protect the material below it. Additionally, it also protects the client’s face from skin allergies and other issues brought about by contaminants.

Face Cradle Cover with a Client

A headrest is really comprised of three things – face cradle, face pillow and the face pillow cover. A headrest can work without a covering, but there is too much risk on the part of the client as well as on the pillow for harmful bacteria to come in. That’s why a face cradle cover is needed. It doesn’t cost much. You might as well invest in it to prolong the life of the headrest and to protect the client’s health.

Face pillow covers can be washable or disposable. Each type has its specific use case. For instance, a massage establishment with several clients a day would benefit more from disposable covers due to their lower operating cost and ease of use. It doesn’t make sense if the establishment uses a washable cover as that would entail additional cost for laundry services. It would also limit their supply since washable types cost a bit more per piece.

Below is a chart that lists 10 of the best face cradle covers sold online. Along with their brand names are their fabric types and quantity.

Face Cradle Cover Compatibility

Headrests have different sizes as determined by their manufacturer. Ideally, you’d look at headrest covers from your massage or Reiki table’s manufacturer since they have certainly been tested on their respective products. Then again, one brand’s cover may be superior to the other.

We’ll take a look at which ones are compatible with other brands as claimed by users in their reviews:

Disposable face cradle covers are often loosely made so that they can be easily removed. It also makes them compatible with a variety of headrests. The only downside to the loose design is that it can also quickly slip off when the client moves his/her head. Practitioners remedy this by taping the bottom left, right and top sides of the cover onto the pillow.

On the other hand, a washable headrest cover is designed to fit face pillows of a particular range of sizes.
