Gear / Equipment Recommendations

Lots of people ask me about the gear that I use, so here are some of the different types of equipment and tools that I use and/or recommend.

Note* these are Amazon Affiliate Links; Buying through these links helps me out but doesn’t cost you any extra.

Sporox II

CDC Compliant High-Level Disinfectant for cups and Gua Sha / IASTM tools.

Sporox Test Kit

Test kit allows you to extend the life of Sporox II past 21 days by ensuring it is still effective.

Lotion Warmer:

Trueglow Lotion Warmer by Conair – a lotion warmer/pump that can pump oil, lotion or even most creams. It only heats what is in the head of the pump so it doesn’t waste a ton of energy and warms up in just a minute or so.

Silicone Cupping Sets:

These “double bubble” style silicone cups are my favorite type. Easy to clean/sanitize, non-porous, and really quite affordable. I have used all of these brands and find them to be functionally identical.

Elera Cup Set [7 Piece]

Elera XL Cup Pair [2 Piece]

Syhood Cup Set [16 Piece]

QISEEYA Cup Set [6 Piece – Cheapest]

Gua Sha [IASTM] Tools

I prefer stainless steel over all other materials due to it’s ease of cleaning/sanitizing. Prices on these have come way down making them practical for most practitioners.

Basic Gua Sha Tool:


Trianglular-Shaped Gua Sha Tool

B-Shaped Gua Sha Tool

Small Brass Knuckle Shaped Gua Sha Tool

Big Brass Knuckle-Shaped Gua Sha Tool

T-Shaped Gua Sha Tool

Machete-Shaped Gua Sha Tool

6 Piece Gua Sha/IASTM Tool Set

14 Piece Gua Sha/IASTM Tool Set

Nitrile Gloves

Basic Brand XS Gloves 1000 pcs

Basic Brand S Gloves 1000 pcs

Basic Brand M Gloves 1000 pcs

Basic Brand L Gloves 1000 pcs

Basic Brand XL Gloves 1000 pcs

Table Warmer:

Simple, reliable table warmer from Earthlite with Low, Medium, and High settings.

Jade Hot Stones:

Jade is a non-porous stone so it is easier/safer to clean these compared to the usual basalt ones.

Electric Lift Massage Tables:

The best lift table is the one you can afford/buy. Get a lift table ASAP.

Earlthlite Ellora Lift Table [The Table I use – also sold under Stronglite brandname]

Cheapest Lift Massage Table -Saloniture [Better to have a cheap lift table than no lift table]

Stronglite Massage Chair

Not the cheapest massage chair, but rock solid, and very adjustable.
