With so many large cities in California, it’s no surprise California has many places to go when you’re in need of a massage.  Here are some tips to find the right place for you that is offering the massage you are looking for.

1.  Know what type of massage you want.  Most therapists offering swedish therapy, aromatherapy, hot stone therapy, thai therapy, deep tissue therapy, shiatsu, reflexology, back therapy, sports therapy, and pregnancy therapy.  When you know what type of service you are looking for, it makes it easier to locate an establishment near you.

2.  Look in the yellow pages or do a local search online for massage therapy.  Find an establishment near you offering the type of massage you are looking for and call them up for rates.

3.  Look online on sites like Yelp.com for reviews of the place, if any.  Reading reviews is one of the best ways to find out what type of service you can expect and is a great way to weed out your choices and make a decision on where to go.

4.  After making a decision and getting treatment, it is very common not to be satisfied by the service.  If that is the case, repeat the first three steps until you find a place that offers services that are up to par.  Like most things in life, finding the right masseuse is largely trial and error, but you can make the process shorter by following the steps outlined here.

I hope you can get a satisfactory rub down.  Massages have many benefits including stress relief, reduces soreness, helps body aches, and much more.
