What should you consider when choosing a massage therapist?

Here are 3 things to consider when choosing your massage therapist.

1. Fits your schedule.

Practically, you need to choose a massage therapist who aligns with your personal schedule and the ideal time you would like to book your massage. For example, if you prefer to book a massage over your lunch hour or after work hours.

With 7 therapists, we have availability every day of the week, as well as from as early as 9am until 7pm. Check out our easy online booking process to see which therapist fits your schedule.

2. Offers the type of massage or technique you need.

Consider what type of massage are you looking for and your ultimate goal. Are you seeking relaxation or do you need to treat a specific injury or pain area? Do you need a specific type of massage such as prenatal or sports massage? Understanding what your goal is and what techniques you may need such as Graston or fascial release will guide you in which therapist is the best match for you.

If you have questions about the type of massage you may need or what specific techniques may be right for you, be sure to contact us via email at .

3. Meets your comfort level.

Finding someone you are comfortable with is key. Communication before, during and after the massage will ensure you get the treatment you need. This is often done after trying and meeting a massage therapist for the first few times you have a massage treatment. Remember, finding the best match will give you the best outcome.

Final tip: it’s ok to try more than one massage therapist

It is very common and absolutely ok to try several massage therapists. At our Calgary clinic, our team is truly collaborative. Our patients and solving their issues are always the top priority.
