The best way to find a massage therapist is by referral or recommendation from friends and relatives who are already receiving massages. This way you can start with someone you already trust since your family and friends trust them. However, although massage is a scientific discipline, it also is like an art, in that, everyone’s style and touch is different so it may be necessary to try a couple of different therapists until you find one whose work is most beneficial to you and that you are comfortable working with.
Important to note, before you have anyone work on you be sure that they are currently licensed and insured to practice and that their location is also currently licensed as a massage establishment. You may check online with your Health Department on the validity of licensure. In Florida, the Department of Health website is floridahealth.gov and the information is under Licensing and Regulation.
