Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I was recently able to assist a client who had a terrible headache after a chair massage at work. I utilized Heat and cold opening up the muscles to release tension and tightness which may have aggravated the headache. I then did a follow up session using the same contrast heat and cold and found the clients muscles were not as tight and their headache went away soon after my first session.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the therapist is not calling themself a "masseuse"
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Massage therapy is a wonderful treatment to have done. Massage therapists are professional and offer therapetic techniques not to be confused with "massuese" I am a massage therapist and only offer therapuetic massage. People often misunderstand and think of the history of "massuses" with "happy endings" If a therapist who went to school in Az calls themself a "massesue" if it were me I would be reporting them to the state board of massage therapy as that's not something offered in any professional massage program.
