Learn basic massage techniques from massage therapist Renee French with the demonstrations in these Howcast videos.
"Hi, my name is Renee French and I'm here at Practical Massage Therapy in Nashville, Tennessee, and I'm going to be talking about massage therapy. So these are my suggestions on how to find a good Massage Therapist. First off, I would recommend asking around, finding anyone who may be receiving massage regularly and get a referral from them in your area. If you don't have friends who are getting massage and you can't find a good referral, I would suggest finding on the internet some businesses in your area that offer massage and making sure that they are licensed or certified, and then making some phone calls and finding out their experience levels and what type of work they offer. There are lots of different techniques and Massage Therapists will integrate different things depending on what they learned in school. So just be patient, try a couple of people and see what works best for you. And the last thing I would recommend, is just finding someone who really fits the needs of your body."
