Due to the revival of natural medicine and preventative healthcare, there is an increase in demand for massage therapists. A quick internet search will yield hundreds of massage therapists in and around your local area, but it does not guarantee the quality or skill level of the therapist. At Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies, we believe there are 10 major attributes that every successful massage therapist should possess or develop—it is what separates a good massage therapist from a great massage therapist. These traits are what keeps a client coming back for more treatments and it’s an integral part of Raynor Massage:

  1. Empathy towards clients
  2. Focus and attention throughout the massage treatment
  3. Professionalism
  4. Good hygiene
  5. Use of appropriate pressure for the client
  6. Correct and effective techniques—Raynor Massage!
  7. Rhythm and flow of treatment
  8. Partnership model of medicine
  9. Verbal communication
  10. Overall effect of the treatment
