What Is The Right Massage For Me

That depends on what your bodies needs, are you stress, in pain  there is no hard and fast rule for this. the best thing to do is go have the different types of massage done so you and your body have a knowledge of what it’s about and your body will tell you what your need and when.

Who Do I Go To For A Massage

The best way to find a massage therapist is to as a friend, at least you will now what to expect and what it will cost, through an association or a local directory service.

Things to know

  • Have the a certificate/diploma with more than 100 hours of study
  • Are they part of an association (optional)
  • Professional Insurance

You may get a massage from a person and thing it’s the best and tell a friend and they go and not think it was so hot. One I used to talk about to students coming into the shop. Massage is about energy. regardless if it’s physical or energetic. if the energy between you and there therapist is blah you will get a blah massage, if there is a great connection your massage will be better. it might be you have to try different people. It also is about the therapist passion to heal will mean there is a higher energy in the session.

What To Expect

This is what I do and what I was tort

  • They will ask why you are there.
  • They will ask  for medical history, life style, fill out a client card
  • Depending on the session motion tests
  • The therapist will give you directions on how they want you to lie on the table.
  • The therapist will give you directions about getting undressed, remember you only have to remove at much clothing as you feel comfortable with or what is required by the treatment. Ladies your bra is optional as it can be unclipped and clipped backup.  Leave undies on we need to tuck the towel in somewhere.
  • Massage therapist work with informed consent, this mean they have to ask if you want body parts done and if you want them exposed. but if they forget to ask TELL them you don’t want something massages, TELL them if  you don’t want a part of your body uncovered or exposed. Areas that can be left out breasts, bums, feet, tummy are the main ones
  • The therapist will leave the room to allow you to get undress, please wait for them to do so.  And they will leave to allow you to get dressed.
