Cool Tool: White Noise Machine
I relocated my massage studio about 5 months ago. (Yes, I still practice massage therapy and continue to work with my clients of 10+ years!) The new space had many draws, one of which is easily accessible, free parking. (My office was located downtown for 10 years prior and the parking situation was always a problem.)
After moving in, I noticed that the walls were a bit... thin. I could easily hear my neighbors in the building talking and laughing. Adding my music, fountain, and fan helped to muffle the sounds somewhat, but there was still more noise than I was comfortable with.
I did incorporate some of the tips from this blog post along one wall, but I was unable to do this on the main offending wall because of how I need my studio setup for Ashiatsu training. So I did some research on Amazon and decided to try this white noise machine after reading several positive reviews online.
This machine is amazing. It has tons of different levels and white noise sounds to choose from. When I have it on, I'm completely unaware that I have any neighbors.
Well worth the 60 bucks! It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's fairly small and easy to find a tucked away place to set it.
I'm not an Amazon affiliate or anything, I just found this machine helpful in my own massage practice and wanted to tell you about it in case you're looking for a way to muffle some sounds in your own massage studio.
Do you have some other tips & tricks to help with noise? I'd love to hear them.
