5 Lively plant ideas to brighten your massage studio

Plants are a natural way to decorate and liven up your massage studio space. When choosing the right plants for your treatment space, lobby, or other areas of your massage studio, there a few things to keep in mind.

It's best to avoid flowers and flowering plants, as your clients and co-workers might suffer from pollen allergies. Maintenance must also be considered: will you be able to consistently maintain your plants so that they aren't molding, growing out of control, or dropping dead leaves on the floor? With a therapists needs in mind, we've chosen a few of our favorite plants that should fit well into your lifestyle and add vitality to your massage studio.

1. Succulents

There are so many creative, fun ways to plant succulents. Succulents are great for small spaces, easy to grow, and come in a variety of colors and shapes. They don't require much in the way of watering and special care, because succulents are native to arid climates. Many succulents are slow-growing and won't take over a small space.

2. Snake Plants

Mother-in-law's tongue, or Snake Plants, have a lot going for them. First of all, they're really hardy and grow well in low light. Secondly, they're striking and grow vertically, making them easy to wrangle in a small space or corner. They are also said to improve indoor air quality. (Check out Kamal Meattle's TED Talk about how he used snake plants to boost air quality at a New Delhi business park)


3. Lucky Bamboo

Bamboo is a natural choice for a massage treatment space. These particular kinds of bamboo plants are said to bring good luck and fortune, especially if received as a gift. They're very easy to care for and can actually be maintained for years in a simple vase with rocks. Be careful of using tap water, though, because they are a bit sensitive to chlorine.

4. Rosemary

If you're looking for a mildly fragrant plant, look no further than Rosemary. Rosemary is a healing herb, and it's also a fantastic smelling plant to grow indoors if you have enough bright light. It is drought tolerant and thrives in a bright, sunny window. Keep this plant on the dry side and don't over water.

5. Moss

This is one of our favorites. If you're a neat freak and like to keep your plants contained, you should try moss. You can grow moss almost anywhere, and in any kind of small enclosed container like a glass jar or bowl. Moss is super low maintenance and doesn't need soil. You do have to keep it moist and out of harsh sunlight. It's perfect for adding a natural touch to your massage treatment space.
