Choosing the Right Massage Therapist in Breckenridge


Finding the right massage therapist can be challenging. Your massage therapist should be someone you feel comfortable talking with. You will need to share details about your health history, as well as your health and wellness goals with your massage therapist. In order to experience the stress relieving benefits of massage you must find a massage therapist that makes you feel comfortable and well cared for. This can be especially difficult if you are on vacation to Breckenridge, but still want to enjoy a massage while you are away. How will you find the right massage therapist for you?


The very first thing you need to know when looking for a massage therapist is whether or not they are certified. A certification ensures that they have the appropriate education and training hours necessary to provide the right care. It is especially important to look for a certified massage therapist when you are pregnant. You will want to find a massage therapist who has training specific to pregnancy and pregnant women’s bodies. This will give you peace of mind as you seek the relaxation you need during pregnancy.

Talk About Your Massage Needs

It is okay to talk with a receptionist about the different types of massage offered, as well as the level of training their massage therapists are required to have. It is important to make sure a massage therapist can meet your health needs.

Sports Recovery Massage

With a certification being the bare minimum you can work from there to find a massage therapist you love. Many people who come to Breckenridge for vacation are here for sports such as skiing, hiking, mountain biking and other outdoor activities. Will you be looking for sports recovery massage? This type of massage focuses on reducing muscle soreness and inflammation, and keeping you limber and flexible. This type of massage can help keep you active throughout your entire vacation and reduce the risk of serious injury.

Convenient Location

You will also want to find a convenient location. Rather than taking the gondola, bus, or navigating traffic and parking lots, imagine being able to ski right into your spa and then hit the slopes when you are done. Or, gliding in to relax in a warm soaking pool after an intense day on the mountain. If your spa is far away from the slopes, you will have to waste precious skiing time getting to and from your massage appointment.
