I Find Your Lack of Massage Music Disturbing

I'm one of those people who needs to constantly be changing my massage music.  It keeps me from going crazy.  Well... for the most part.

One of my favorite tools is Free Nature Sounds.  I can add rain and thunder, crashing ocean waves, bubbling brook or any other imaginable sound to my current massage music.

Mix & match, create your own relaxation mixes, save them as links, export them as files, or just stream them right from your computer.  Add one of these mixes to some old massage music and experience a whole new sound!

I have a laptop and internet at my studio, so it's easy to just stream it along with my massage music.  I use wireless speakers (similar to these) plugged in to my laptop, so I don't need to have my computer in the massage room with me.  (and they require no wiring to hook up).

While the rain and thunder are my favorite, there are also more adventurous choices like Darth Vader and fireworks.  While I'm not sure I'd like those added to massage music... I'm not here to judge. ;-)  So for those of you that like that kind of thing, I've made a mix just for you: Darth Vader Massage.
You're welcome.

Also - with my speakers - I put one in my waiting room and one in my massage room, so the music matches and flows as you walk through the studio. :-)

@ Robin - I love these speakers because all you do is plug them in - no wiring!  (I'm all about that!) lol

I have found that I can't put them just anywhere in my room - at certain places, they seem to pick up some interference and get a little static-y.  It was just a matter of finding where a good place was for them, though - and now I don't have any problems.  

@ Daniel - as long as it works for your clients - it works!  :-)  I like having music, but I get bored with it quickly. So I'm always looking for new ways to have fresh sounds.  Perhaps I will try silence sometime as well ;-)

Thanks for the links Cindy. Except for the Darth Vader mix, I enjoyed them :). I've been downloading my music to an old IPOD my son gave me and looking for speakers. These wireless look great.

I don't use music. Find it to distracting. I listen and teach my clients to listen to the rhythm of their body.
If I come for a massage would you mind turning off the spa sounds so I can relax to the rhythm of your hands and my body? It is all the music I need.
