Tips Before, During, and After Your Massage
- .Do your Research. Idaho just implemented a Board for Massage Therapy in the summer of 2014. This means that there may still be some therapists out there who are falling under the radar and are not licensed or have never had any real training. You can go to the Boards site and look up any name, if they are licensed they will show up along with their credentials.
- Communication is Key! Most intuitive therapists develop a certain sense about pressure, but this is by no means perfect. It is up to you to tell the therapist if the pressure is too much or too little. And don’t feel shy about speaking up, every good therapist wants your input because every person is different and we certainly don’t know what feels good to you.
- It is your body, protect it! I’ve had multiple clients tell me horror stories about uncomfortable situations. If at ANY point you don’t feel comfortable with a therapist, end the session right there.
