Choosing The Right Massage Therapist For You is About Knowing Your Goals
When looking into getting a massage, it’s good to know the purpose of the massage. Is it because you just want to relax, or is it because you want some work done on deep muscle tissue?
Knowing your goals is the first step in choosing the right massage therapist.
In a recently published article entitled 5 Tips For Choosing The Right Massage Therapist For You, author Edan Harari, LMT, writes that not all massages we’ve gotten in the past were what we were specifically looking for, but it doesn’t have to be that way in the future. “All you need to do is a little prep work and you can ensure that you only enjoy the session but that you’re also satisfied with the results,” he writes. “After all, you’re spending time and money on the session, you might as well have it meet your expectations.”
Choosing the Right Massage Therapist For You Is About Doing Your Homework
In the age of the internet, it’s easy to simply go online and search out the massage therapists in your area and see what they specialize in. “You may want to first see if there is information about them online and then ask them for a brief phone conversation (15 minutes or less) where you can ask them some questions,” Harari writes.
Examples of some questions you may want to ask include:
What type of massage education do they have?
Are they licensed and/or certified?
How many years have they been practicing?
What are the types of clients that they usually work with and what are some of their treatment goals?
What’s their favorite modality to practice and what’s your philosophy when it comes to massage and healing?
And read reviews to see what past patients have felt about the experience.
