“Spa” Massage vs “Therapeutic” Massage?

    Irene Diamond. difference between spa massage and clinical massage

    Is there a difference between "Spa" Massage vs "Therapeutic" Massage?

    All healthy touch is therapeutic.

    The distinction between "Spa Massage" and "Therapeutic Massage" has nothing to do with WHERE the service or session is performed.

    The distinction has everything to do with the final INTENT or RESULT the provider and client seek.

    It's all about the intent of the service.

    4 Questions to Ponder:

    1. Do you agree with my distinction of Spa Massage vs Therapeutic Massage.
    2. When you provide massage, what do you call it? 
    3. Is what you call it based on intent/outcome, location, or something else? 
    4. When you request a massage (as a client) what do you ask for?
