What to Look for in a Massage Therapist A good massage therapist is somebody who can apply massage techniques effectively as to relieve you of your stress and tension and even certain health problems. Choosing a time to get a massage is easy, but what’s more difficult is looking for the therapist who will actually satisfy your needs. And yes, you have to spend time looking for the right therapist because they’re not all created equal. Note that a massage business may be opened by anybody even without formal training. And it can even be dangerous as massage involves pressure, and applying too much for too long in the wrong areas can somehow compromise your health. With the points mentioned above, how do you know if a therapist is good for you? What questions are you supposed to ask? Are there any personal qualities you should look for? You can start by asking friends for recommendations, but if you’re still not satisfied, below are tips that can guide you when you search from scratch:

1. Ask for credentials.
Getting Down To Basics with Services
Don’t think twice about asking your prospective therapist if they are licensed or certified, where they were trained or how long they’ve been working a s a therapist. If they say they have a license and are certified, ask if you can see proof. The rules of certification can differ from one state to another, but generally, massage therapists need to have completed no less than 500 hours of classroom instruction. Being a certificate holder and having participated in advanced training courses are important, if only to show that the therapist is committed to his job and will do what he can to enrich his knowledge and skills. Common designations, which depend on the state, include Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Licensed Massage Practitioner (LMP), Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and Certified Massage Therapist (CMT). 2. Talk about supplies and paraphernalia. Always ask the prospective therapist what types of oils or lotions he uses, and take a look at the ingredients of these products, especially if you have sensitive skin. There are so many massage products out there, like scented or unscented, or those which are organic. Massage tools, equipment and linens must be absolutely clean. You should never compromise on this part. 3. There should be open communication. You should be able to discuss with your therapist matters such as your expectations, the massage style you want, and so on. Your therapist must also be able to adjust to the amount of pressure you want, and not insist on what he thinks is good for you. 4. Inquire about appointment rules as well as pricing. Ask how appointments can be scheduled and if they can come for a home service. Ask about their rates as well, including rates for your special requests (for example, using a certain type of aromatherapy oil). And don’t forget to know the accepted payment modes.
