Lets look at the ten things you should look for in a good massage therapist in Brisbane

 

  1. Certification- ensure the business has a certified diploma in massage.
  2. Price- Be careful of low priced massage services. The main reason they are cheap is because you are getting a massage of low quality and not trained correctly in proper massage techniques
  3. Technique- Some people swear by the massage offered by thai or chinese massage therapists. There are many massage centres around Brisbane that offer traditional and authentic remedial massage using traditional techniques of massage using their hands, wrists and elbows to penetrate those tired muscles.
  4. Experience- If you want a good massage you need to ensure the massage therapist has experience in what they are doing. Before you make an appointment ask how much experience has the massage therapist has had in massage therapy.
  5. Ambience- You want to feel relaxed and refreshed therefore ambience is importance to the overall feel and experience of the massage. Ensure the massage centre is clean, suttle, makes you feel relaxed with the right lighting and sound such as nice relaxing music to make you feel nice and relaxed.
  6. Equipment- make sure the massage centre has up to date equipment such as massage tables, chairs etc to give you the good overall experience of a great massage.
  7. Draping Techniques- make sure the massage therapist conducts professional draping techniques when conducting the massage. The private areas of the body should be covered up at all times.
  8. Communication- to ensure your massage is effective in getting to the problem of your pain that you want to be rectified by the massage, you need to communicate to the massage therapist what is the problem, what is your concern and where the problem is and how long it has been a problem. A good massage therapist should be asking you questions so they can provide the best treatment to your body during the massage.
  9. Call Back- If you ring the massage therapist and leave a message, how prompt is their service in calling you back. Unreturned phone calls provides a sense of unprofessionalism and a lack of willingness to provide good service.
  10. Customer Service- This last point is something that needs to be experienced in the massage centre and give you some indication that would you come back again. The whole experience of the massage including greeting, massage experience and the exit all plays an important role of the total massage experience. Therefore customer service is very important in making a massage a good massage.
