What makes an excellent massage?
Your massage experience should be relaxing and enjoyable — not awkward and uncomfortable. To help you avoid a less-than-ideal situation, keep an eye out for the following crucial traits:
- Years of experience. The best massage therapists have years of industry experience, meaning they know exactly how to help you overcome pain, release tension and fall blissfully into a state of rest.
- Personalised treatment. Whether you have tight shoulders or a pulled hamstring, your massage therapist should be able to personalise their service to suit your needs.
- Clean and comfortable environment. Hygiene is critical. You should expect a high standard of cleanliness of the therapy room and spa/salon as a whole. If you notice grubby surfaces and strange towels piled in the corner, it might be wise to apologise and head out the door.
- Friendly staff. Having a massage should be an enjoyable experience of self-indulgence. Rude, unfriendly staff can completely ruin it for you.
- Well-priced. No one likes being ripped off. A spa or salon should charge a fair rate for their services.
