People vacation in Maui, HI for many reasons. One of the number one reasons is to relax. So when going to Maui, what’s one of the best ways you can relax? I think getting a nice massage from a local massage therapist would be a great way, and so do most people.
Getting a massage while on vacation is actually high up on a lot of travelers “must do” lists, but when you are traveling, how do you know which massage therapist to select? Here are a few tips to help you search for and find the best massage therapist while on your vacation in Maui, HI.
1. Look for someone outside of your resort. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with getting a massage at your resort. But if you want a true, local relaxing massage, choose a local massage therapist. Most of the therapist that work at the bigger resorts have not lived on the island very long, so you will fee like you are getting a massage you can get somewhere on the mainland.
2. Do they offer mobile massage? Maui is not a big island, so no matter where you are staying, you are not going to have to drive far to get a massage. But sometimes you just don’t want to drive anywhere. Maybe you just want to get a nice relaxing massage on the balcony of your condo with the fresh ocean breeze.
Most local massage therapist that offer mobile massage services will come to you no matter what part of the island you are staying on. This makes it much more relaxing because you won’t have to worry about driving or dealing with traffic or anything like that.
3. Do they have a good rapport with locals? This is a great way to decide whether or not you are choosing the right massage therapist. Visit their website, and review sites like Yelp and Trip Advisor and read some reviews. If you see a lot of reviews from local people who live on Maui, that is a great sign that the massage therapist does a really great job.
If the locals trust that person, that means he/she is not just working for visitors, but they are passionate about what they do.
When looking for the best massage in Maui, pay attention to the tips and information I just shared with you and you can feel confident that you will be on your way to getting the relaxing massage you are looking for during your visit to Maui.
