Home massage – is it really a good idea to get a massage at home? Or is it better to stick with a massage spa? Today we’re going to talk a little bit about at-home massage versus spa massage.
Home Massage – Is This Really A Good Idea?
When it comes to massage, you have two options, you can visit a massage spa or you can call for an at-home masseuse to visit you at your home.
When you visit a massage spa, there are plenty of ways to check up on the reputation of the spa itself as well as read reviews of the massage technician you are booked with. When you have a massage technician come to your home, you can only check on reviews of the masseuse and often they are hard to find.
When you visit a massage spa, you can be sure that the spa is fully licensed because of local licensing requirements. Having a massage technician come to you, however, means asking uncomfortable questions or risking the chance that your masseuse is not licensed at all!
A visit to a massage spa also offers you the opportunity to fully relax in an environment that is designed for exactly that. It gives you a chance to leave your real-world behind and truly relax. Having a massage technician come to you, however, means that you are still in your home and while a masseuse can help you to relieve stress, you are going to be right in the middle of that stress while getting your massage!
When you visit a massage spa, there are repercussions in place for massage technicians who do not follow the rules and who make guests feel uncomfortable. When you call a massage technician into your home, though, any inappropriate behavior or rulebreaking behavior is going to come down to a he-said, she-said situation where you may wind up with no recourse at all.
Another important consideration when you visit a massage spa is that you are in an environment that is “neutral”. You have nothing to risk by meeting in a public location. Inviting a massage technician into your home, though, means that you are inviting a stranger into your home. Without doing a good amount of research, you could be letting anyone into your home and not just putting yourself at risk, but putting your home and your property at risk too. Of course, this doesn’t happen often, but you don’t want to be the person who gets robbed because you invited a stranger into your home. Be safe and meet them in a business location.
