Mobile Massage Therapy is much different than any other service you may invite into your home because it addresses mental, physical, and emotional areas of your life in which you are seeking betterment for. This means questions are merited. Below I've composed some of the most frequently asked questions I get as a Mobile Massage Therapist but want to make sure you know you can always call or text with more questions.

  • What are the different types of Massage Therapy?
    There are several different types of massage therapy, including: 1. Swedish massage: This is the most common type of massage, which involves long, gliding strokes, kneading, and tapping to relax muscles and improve circulation. 2. Deep tissue massage: As I mentioned earlier, deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is beneficial for chronic pain and muscle tension. 3. Sports massage: This type of massage is specifically designed for athletes and focuses on preventing and treating injuries, as well as enhancing athletic performance. 4. Hot stone massage: This involves the use of heated stones placed on specific areas of the body to relax muscles and promote relaxation. 5. Shiatsu massage: Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique that involves applying pressure to specific points on the body to relieve tension and promote healing. 6. Thai massage: Thai massage combines stretching, acupressure, and yoga-like movements to improve flexibility, relieve muscle tension, and promote relaxation. These are just a few examples, and there are many other types of massage therapy available.
  • How long does a massage session typically last?
    A typical massage therapy session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the client's preferences and needs. Some clients may prefer shorter sessions for targeted areas, while others may opt for longer sessions for a full-body massage. It's important to communicate with your massage therapist to determine the best duration for your specific needs.
  • What should I expect during a massage session?
    During a massage therapy session, you can expect to be asked about your medical history and any specific areas of concern. The therapist will then leave the room to allow you to undress to your comfort level and lie on the massage table, covering yourself with a sheet. The therapist will use various techniques, such as kneading, stroking, and applying pressure, to manipulate your muscles and soft tissues. They may also use oils or lotions to reduce friction on your skin. You can communicate with the therapist throughout the session, letting them know if the pressure is too intense or if you have any discomfort. The session will typically end with the therapist leaving the room to allow you to dress.
  • Are there any potential side effects or risk associated with massage therapy?
  • How often should I get a massage?
    .The frequency of getting a massage can vary depending on individual needs and preferences. Some people may benefit from weekly sessions, while others may find that monthly or even less frequent sessions are sufficient. It's best to consult with a massage therapist to determine the frequency that would be most beneficial for you.
  • How much does a massage session typically cost?
    The cost of a massage therapy session can vary depending on factors such as location, the type of massage, and the duration of the session. On average, a one-hour massage session can cost anywhere from $100 to $150 in The Greater Phoenix area. However, prices can be higher or lower depending on the specific circumstances.
  • Do I need to undress completely for a massage?
    In Arizona, it is common for clients to undress completely for a massage session. However, it is important to note that you can undress to your comfort level. The massage therapist will provide you with privacy and ensure that you are properly draped with sheets or towels during the session to maintain your modesty which is required by Arizona State Law.
  • What qualifications or certifications should I look for in a massage therapist?
    When looking for a massage therapist, it is important to consider their qualifications and certifications. Some certifications to look for include being licensed by the state or having a certification from a reputable massage therapy organization such as the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). Additionally, you may want to consider the therapist's level of experience and any specialized training they have received in specific massage techniques or modalities. It is also a good idea to read reviews or ask for recommendations from others who have received massages from the therapist you are considering.
  • How can I verify a massage therapist in my area?
    The State of Arizona is committed to ensuring the protection of the General Public when it comes to massage therapy. You may verify the good standing of any massage therapist in the State of Arizona by visiting the Arizona State Board of Massage Therapy's website and searching for your therapist's name: Massage Therapist Search Tool | Arizona State Board of Massage Therapy ( My name is Richard Abisia (pronounced Abisha) should you wish to verify my good standing.
