Barriers to Massage That You Need to Overcome
Updated: Sep 6, 2019
There are so many benefits to getting regular massages. Your health, mood, and overall function can be improved through massage.
Yet, many people I run into still have never had a massage. People still have barriers holding them back. Here are some barriers potential clients have and why they shouldn't exist.
I don’t have enough space for the massage table.
You'd be surprised at the "tiny" spaces I have given a massage. From kitchens to hotel rooms to offices a massage table can be put up most anywhere. You generally need no more than a 5ft by 8ft space.
I don't you.
I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Arizona and insured by American Massage and Bodywork Professionals. My photo and bio are available on my website so that you know who will be coming to your door when schedule your appointment. I can also answer any other questions you may have in order for you to be confident when you book.
I’m injured or out of shape.
This is a common concern, but not one to lose sleep over. I have worked with a vast variety of people with all sorts of body shapes, ages, and physical conditions. Your intake form can bring to light any specific concerns about areas to avoid or focus on.
I have allergies.
Some people have concerns about the lotions and oils used by massage therapists causing a skin reaction. Fear not. I use unscented, hypoallergenic products at all massage appointments.
I don’t want to be naked in front of a stranger.
You may be concerned about privacy or being uncovered. I want you to be comfortable on the massage table. I will use a variety of draping techniques to only expose the area being worked on. In fact, you can feel free to wear whatever you like during your massage up to a suit of armor. I will adjust my techniques accordingly.
I can’t fit massage into my schedule.
I can work with your schedule. I accept appointments from 8:00am to as late as 10:00pm. Make time for your self.
