Massage is a great way to relieve stress, but some Americans might be missing out on the therapy’s many benefits because of myths and misconceptions about massage. There are new and exciting opportunities for potential clients to experience massage at a price they can afford. The experts at Cortiva Institute, a group of massage therapy schools across the country, offer the truth behind some common myths about massage:
- Myth: Massage is so expensive, only the rich can afford it. Fact: Massage therapy treatments cost about $60 per hour. It’s possible to find discounts as well.
- Myth: You have to be undressed to get a massage. Fact: It’s entirely up to you how much (or how little) clothing you want to remove for a massage – although tight-fitting undergarments may get in the way of the treatment.
