Relaxing Massage Music

I've had a ton of massages in the past, and honestly the worst part of the massage wasn't the therapist with the creepy moustache, or the rest of her bizarre qualities; I have to say that it was the music that they had playing. If I'm going to pay seventy or more dollars for a massage, then I should be treated to a blissful experience for all of my senses, including what I'm being forced to listen to.

It shouldn't really be that hard to find a soothing album to play during a session, and as a therapist myself, I know how frustrating it can be to hear the same tunes over and over again.

Worse still than just having bad music during a massage is having the creepy music instead. Babies crying laughing or doing anything else may be relaxing to some people, but that isn't relaxing to me. And when they start playing those chimes and bells, it ends up sounding like Michael Myers is trying to sneak up on the massage table instead.

The key to finding relaxing massage music is to really identify your goal during the massage session. It's pretty much impossible to try and account for each clients' individual tastes regarding music, and it isn't really feasible in most clinic situations. But there's an easy way to find out what your goal during the massage session actually is. Just ask the client!

If the person straight up wants to relax, then don't blow their eardrums out with loud, fast music. Try something calm, subdued, and slow.

If the massage you're going to give is more of a sports massage, then you can certainly speed up the tempo, and maybe make it a song that's actually familiar to the client. Something that's going to get the client pumped up and invigorated; so by the time you're done with the massage, he just wants to jump up and hit the court. Full speed to victory!

If the session has more of an Eastern flavor, then that should definitely be reflected in the music that's playing in the background. Get some Asian inspired tunes pumping in that session.

The long and the short of it is this: Your client is paying good money to have you work on them, and they have a right to expect that their session will accomplish their objective. So, if you ensure that the music you choose matches the session, that music will really fit with the session objective and you will have found some really relaxing massage music.

(Just steer clear of the babies & scary chimes.)
