Choosing a Manual Therapist

Whether you are looking for a Reflexology Therapist, Reiki Practitioner, or Massage Therapist; Choosing a therapist can sometimes be a challenge! Here are some go to tips to help you make your decision.

1. Check credentials! It is crucial to make sure they belong to a professional and recognized association relating to their field, are insured and have completed all the required hours to practice. There is a huge difference between a 12 hour weekend Reflexology course and a 200 hour intensive course.
2. Ask Questions about their practice! This ensures you are on the same page with your potential practitioner so that you can both work together towards your goals. A professional individual will gladly answer any questions you may have to put your mind at ease and help you gain a better perspective on what they do and how they can help you. Example: Choosing someone who has extra training and loves working with pregnant women is a good choice if you are pregnant.
3. Can you see yourself being able to relax and get comfortable with this person? As a Reflexology Therapist, my job is to create a safe space for you to relax, rest and repair. When you go see someone new there can be that small level of uncertainty, and not knowing what to expect. Trust your gut! If you won’t be able to relax with someone, it will be difficult to benefit from the treatment.
You should be able to feel more comfortable choosing a therapist if they meet the above criteria. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, this is about your health and well-being after all!
