How do you choose the right massage therapist for you? With thousands of therapists and hundreds of clinics and spas it can be hard to know where to go.


Here are 5 things to look for:

– Qualifications

Most massage therapists will have a diploma in holistic massage with further qualifications in more specific techniques. Some will have an ITEC or BTEC diploma.

Ask your therapist which qualifications they have and where they studied.

– Insurance

All therapists should have malpractice insurance and all clinics should have public liability insurance.

– Testimonials

Can you find reviews from previous clients? An established and reputable massage therapist should be able to show you reviews and testimonials from happy clients.

– Professional Body Membership

Membership of a professional body such as MTI demonstrates a commitment to continued learning (CPD) and to a standard of practice and ethics.

– A Genuine Interest in Helping You

Look for a therapist who is friendly and a good listener. They should listen carefully to your problem and explain how they can help. You should feel comfortable with your therapist and be able to trust them.
