3 Tips to Finding a Massage Therapist
The more clients a therapist has worked with, the more likely they will be intuitive. They will also be more likely to have a better understanding of anatomy and physiology since they have worked on more bodies, which in turn, may make their work more effective. Do the research, its worth it!
Some therapists prefer to give a deep tissue massage coupled with a no pain no gain approach. While others may use a more gentle approach to bodywork, using the body’s natural ability to heal itself without using force. It’s good to know your own preferences and align them with your therapist.
Ultimately, the best way to find out if a therapist is to your liking is to book a session and give them a try! Keep in the back of your mind that you may not necessarily need to go through a full hour massage to try them out! Try asking for a 30-minute session to see how they do! You could always extend it after!
