10 Things to Look for in a Massage Therapist

Updated: Nov 14, 2023

To put it in point form, these are some the most important elements to consider when you are looking for a MT. Please note, while everyone operates differently and has their individual strengths and weaknesses; This is the standard and as a client you deserve a therapist who consistently works to improve all of the following (because we know we are far from perfect).

  1. Professionalism & Ethical Behavior

  2. Cleanliness & Safety

  3. Time Management & Punctuality

  4. Location, Location Location

  5. Dedication to Training & Development

  6. Personality that Matches Yours

  7. Empathy & Understanding

  8. Curiosity & Humility

  9. Someone Who Makes you Feel Comfortable

  10. Communication and Active Listening Skills

This is my first and shortest blog, simply because I plan to break down these points in future blog posts and didn't want to overwhelm anyone who may stumble across this read (since we now all have reduced attention spans due to social media reels).

What would you add to the list?

From this massage therapist to all clients. Thank you for reading.
