Massage has become widely popular over the last few years. In a lot of cities, there is a massage center or day spa on every other corner. Massages are also becoming more affordable. And massage schools are popping up all over the place.
Although this can be exciting news for the industry, how does it affect the consumer? Well, anytime something becomes more mainstream, popular, and profitable, it also has the potential to become watered down. This increase in quantity usually means a decrease in quality.
This is especially important to ensure the therapist’s preferred style of massage matches yours 오피가이드 . There are well over 50 different types of massage styles. If a massage therapist focuses on sports massage and deep tissue massage, and you are more interested in relaxation and you hate painful massages, then this is not the therapist for you. If you are unsure of the different types of massage, ask the therapist, “what are the benefits of your massage?” and “how will I feel after your massage?” This will help you determine if this massage is right for you.
This question helps determine the quality of the massage therapist. There are a lot of massage schools more interested in profit and business, than in training qualified massage therapists. In fact, I know a few schools who have business teachers on staff and no massage therapists.
Also, you want to make sure that the therapist is certified. There is a National Certification Agency for massage therapists called, National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB). All states do not require a national certification, although you can be sure that therapist who acquire it are dedicated to their craft since it requires them to take a standardized test. To find out which states require NCBTMB, go to.
