Considerations

It's important to find a therapist that gives you exactly what you need in your massage. You should consider both your reason for a massage and how you hope to benefit from it.

Reason For Your Massage

Massage therapy often supplements health care as a way to get you feeling your best. If you're dealing with pain, your healthcare provider may recommend you visit a massage therapist for relief.

Regular massages can also help increase your mobility and improve your circulation. Visiting a massage therapist can also help you recuperate from injury.

Beyond these physical health benefits, massages can also help relieve stress. After you've had a hard day, nothing is quite as relaxing as a nice massage.

Type of Massage

With many different types of massage available, you might wonder which one is right for you.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage. Any therapist should be able to offer you a Swedish-style massage. If you're just getting into massage, this a great type to try. It offers you a chance to fully relax all the muscles in your body.

Deep Tissue Massage

Other massage techniques offer more focused results. Deep tissue massage targets specific problems in your muscles. This can be helpful if you’re suffering from muscle pain, strain, or other injuries. Deep tissue massage tends to be more intense than traditional Swedish massage. This type can be helpful if you’re hoping to improve mobility or dealing with chronic pain.

Sports Massage

Athletes use sports massage to prevent and treat injuries that come from playing sports. It can also help non-athletes deal with muscle pain or mobility issues. This type of massage can also improve blood flow, circulation, and flexibility. With faster strokes, this massage isn't always a relaxing option. If you're looking for relaxation, another type may be a better choice.

Pre-Natal Massage

Some types, like pre-natal massage, are designed to work with a specific need. Pregnant women often suffer from lower back pain and swelling. Pre-natal massage is sure to provide relief. Therapists need specialized trained to offer this type of massage.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage uses warm stones during the massage. Stones are placed at specific points on your body to loosen tight muscles. This also helps to promote relaxation. Hot stone massage may not work with some health conditions. Check with your healthcare provider first.

Reflexology Massage

For this type of massage, a therapist works with your hands and feet. They will apply pressure to different reflex points to give you relief. This pressure triggers positive reactions in your body. These reactions will help reduce pain and stress. Reflexology is extremely relaxing and is a great choice if you spend a lot of time on your feet.

Time

You'll want to know how long it will take to get a massage, whether it's a one-time luxury or part of ongoing self-care. Your massage therapist may offer massages in one length or give you options for the duration. Most massages will be anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes in length.

Your therapist may recommend a certain length to start out with. They will also suggest a length if your massage is working on an injury or targets certain muscles.

If you need to fit your massage into a busy week, you can also request a certain length of time for your session that fits your schedule best.

Experience

You should also look for a therapist with training and experience. If you have a preference, you can request a therapist of a certain gender to make you more comfortable. Whether they're trained in one type of massage or several, you can trust that you're in good hands.

An experienced therapist can recommend a massage treatment that improves how you feel. Make sure you check out their experience before you commit.

Reading reviews of their work can assure you of a pro's qualifications and history. They also share personal impressions that can give you confidence in your therapist's ability.
