Therapist's Code of Ethics
All Massage Traveler therapists uphold the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) Code of Ethics. For more information regarding the NCBTMB or the Code of Ethics, click here.
NOTE ON PRESSURE
Studies show "too deep or too light" is the most common complaint in the massage industry. We will make every effort to make sure the pressure is just right. Our therapists will check in with you a couple of times in the beginning of the massage to determine if the pressure they are using is correct. After the therapist has a good idea on the type of pressure you prefer, they will allow you to zone out, relax, and enjoy the massage. However, we do encourage you to speak up at any time and provide feedback to our therapists. We are here to provide the best and most effective massage possible for you.
