How to choose the right massage therapist

March 4, 2016



What many people think about good health is the absence of diseases, but it is not just only that.  Actually, good health is a combination of physical, social and mental well-being along with having a disease free body. And massage is the mostly widely used method nowadays for ensuring good health and wellness. Though many people still use this therapy for getting rid of physical problems like aches, the relaxing effects of every massage do wonders for your mental well-being. 

There are many types of massage therapies and each of them benefit you in its own way, like hot stone massage, is known for its soothing and relaxing effect that you get through heat transmission into your body. Head massages do wonders for reducing the stress and provides relief to your mind. In a similar way every massage session benefits your body in different ways. 

However, whichever massage modality you find interesting and are looking for, it is crucial to find a reputable and licensed therapist. Though there are many massage therapists in Portland, you will get the massage benefits only when you receive it from an experienced therapist. So, before finalizing your decision on any of the massage clinics or therapists for your massage, you are encouraged to do some research. Here are some tips for finding a reliable massage therapist.

•    It would be best if you receive references or recommendations from your friends, family or any other known person. And if the case you find their services too expensive, ask them for other referrals. Many times, there are chances that you will get a therapist who will be delivering his private services at just the right rate.
•    Ask the spa receptionist if they provide the massage modality you are looking for or not. Ask them for all the details. And do this for about 4-5 spa centers.
•    Ask for the qualification, experience and specialties of the therapist who will be doing your massage.
