Three Steps to a Great Massage Therapy Session

by Kristen White Blogger
First, you need to find a location with a great reputation for providing customer satisfaction, trained therapists and a variety of techniques offered. There are plenty of massage places in the local area but that doesn’t mean they are equal in what they provide or the quality which can lead to a painful or uncomfortable session. This type of experience is why many people don’t go back even though there are many benefits to be had with a massage that is done correctly by the right professional.

One of the things to look for in the best massage Columbus in Ohio is whether they only employ certified staff members as therapists. It is important to understand that every massage technique is different and because muscles and nerves are being manipulated, this should not be accomplished by someone who has seen it done but had no training. This typically results in over manipulation of the muscles, pushing pressure points the wrong way and creating tension when the goal is the exact opposite. Trained and certified therapists know exactly how to work the body based on each client’s specific needs and medical history so they can achieve the goal of relaxation, reduction of pain and stress, opening blood vessels through heat and mental refreshment with the release of endorphins and other hormones. Having the right massage therapist makes a significant difference in whether a client will come back or not in the future.

Thirdly, customers should familiarize themselves with the range of basic massage techniques such as the Swedish, acupressure, Shiatsu, reflexology, hot stone and even sessions specifically designed for pregnancy or athletic injuries/recovery. Each technique is different in how it is applied and the effects it has on the body as the therapist manipulates the muscles in a certain way, focuses on specific areas or uses outside forces like heat to accomplish the desired results. Price points vary depending on what is selected so the hot stone massage cost may be slightly different than Shiatsu massage but the therapist should be individual to make the final recommendation. This takes place after they have read through the paperwork you complete on your initial visit letting them know what areas need work, any past or current injuries and medical conditions and the primary reasons you came in for a massage. The professional should take this information and then discuss which technique they feel would work best for you to provide the results the client is looking for.

A massage session done correctly is the best feeling you can have as it drains away the stress and fatigue developed from work, family and other life areas and leaves you relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on whatever life may have at the moment. By following the above three steps you can make sure that your first massage (or the one given to you by for a friend and family member) is exactly what it should be for a positive experience and the first of many sessions that lead to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
