What should you look for in a massage therapist?

These are notes I made a while ago and never moved to my new website. They're still the standard that I use when I get a massage.

A good massage therapist:

  • is excited about their work
  • talks to you with respect and compassion
  • encourages you to trust your own body
  • works with, not in opposition to, your body
  • treats each client uniquely
  • varies technique and pressure as needed
  • maintains a high level of safety, hygiene, and professionalism
  • keeps a clean and welcoming office space
  • respects your limits and preferences
  • is reliable and punctual

There is no massage therapist who is right for everyone. Find a massage therapist who makes you feel comfortable, respected, and relaxed!
