Massage Services Vero Beach

Massage services in Vero Beach are plentiful but how to find the right massage therapist can be a challenge. Sure you can google someone and hope that they fulfill your needs but in the end you hope that the therapist you find will have a connection with you and be genuine about your well being and helping you achieve whatever health goals you are seeking. Alternatively, going to a day spa doesn’t always guarantee a stellar service since many spa therapists can be quickly overbooked. To get started, you will want to make a list of what your health goals and benefits from massage you are trying to achieve to make a better decision finding the right therapist. Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Pinpoint Your Health Goals
• Do you suffer from chronic pain?
• Are you simply looking to reduce stress?
• Did your health care provider recommend massage as part of your treatment to reduce aches and pains?
• Are you seeking enhancement in your participation of sports?
• Do you simply want to have more general well-being in your life?

These are some questions that can help you get started in communicating with your massage therapist as to what your goals are. The clearer the communication you have with your therapist the better they are likely to serve you.

Get Names of Massage Therapists in Your Area
• Massage Schools
• Fitness Centers
• Professional Associations (FSMTA Florida State Massage Therapy Association)
• Chiropractic Offices
• Friends and family

In regards to professional associations you will be able to weed out people that are practicing massage illegally since a therapist must be currently licensed and in good standing to join these organizations. Here is a list of other massage organizations that you can use to find the right therapist.

American Massage Therapy Association
Associated Bodywork Massage Professionals
Florida State Massage Therapy Association

In the state of Florida massage therapists are required to complete 500 hours of training in an accredited massage school and are then required to complete either an MBLEX exam (Massage & Bodywork Licensing Exam through the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards) or an NCBTMB exam (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork). If they pass either of these exams in the state of Florida then they are fully licensed and qualified.

Make The Call
• Once you find the name of your potential therapist then make the call and ask questions.
• What types of massage do they offer?
• Are sessions by appointment only?
• Do they have certain specialties they offer?

Once you get more information on the therapist and you communicate your goals and needs you can then see if this is the right therapist for you. Doing your homework and getting as much information about what your personal needs are will eliminate any assumptions or unfulfilled expectations. Sometimes you can find the most qualified and experienced therapist but that does not guarantee that you will have the right connection with that therapist. That is where the initial phone call can glean some information on their attitude, how accommodating they are with your schedule and their overall willingness to help you.
