Massage therapists like anyone else benefits from receiving a regular massage, especially with the vigorous schedules some of us keep. I have found however when it comes to getting a massage many therapists have a different approach and perspective on how they get a massage. Some like to simply trade out with another therapist, this way you don't pay each other anything but simply give a massage in return. This method has it's drawbacks however, if you're the one giving the massage first, the person you've just massaged that's supposed to give you a massage is now tired, often too relaxed to give you a good massage in return. I recommend if you're gonna trade out massages, schedule them on different days so you will get a good massage in return. Other therapists like to pay for the massage just as a client would pay for a massage and even tip. This way works great for scheduling purposes while also allowing you to get the therapist of your choice. The only drawback about getting a massage this way, if you need a massage regularly it can get pretty costly if you get two or three massages a week. Then there's other therapists that find someone they really like to trade out with and just give a tip for the massage. Being a therapist I've always been intrigued of how every therapist is different when it comes to getting a massage. As a massage therapist, what is your favorite way of receiving a massage on a regular basis?
