A therapeutic massage at our day spa engages your senses through the use of soothing music, aromatherapy scents and massage oils, as well as the massage itself. A good massage therapist has a range of personal, social and business skills, plus the physical techniques of the profession.
A therapist should have the ability to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. If you do not feel comfortable with your therapist then you won’t be able to enjoy your treatment. Their personality should be welcoming and inviting. They should make the atmosphere as calm and therapeutic as possible, a comfortable massage table with soft towels and perhaps candles to create a warm and safe atmosphere.
Knowledge is key. They should be able to answer your questions competently so that you feel at ease. A good therapist is usually qualified and experienced. A good therapist will be able to feel where your body is tense, they should be able to feel between different layers of tissue.
In order to provide you with the best treatment, your therapist should ask you questions; this will enable them to understand your lifestyle and any problems you might have, such as a tight lower back from desk work or areas of tension and soreness to work on.
After the first few sessions your therapist should know you pretty well and know which areas to focus on, this is the benefit of seeing a regular therapist.
A good massage therapist will have a passion for the profession, they should have a desire you give you the best treatment they can!
