It is important that we take care of ourselves. We could be locked inside without sunshine, without movement and without a proper physical exercise. A massage cannot replace all those but it does help. Our bodies need the feeling, skin and muscles need the touch. Massage can alleviate stress and even help you sleep better.

Criteria for getting a safe massage during the coronavirus times
Here are some ideas as how to stay safer when ordering a massage. This is just a small list and we always must exercise caution. But completely disconnect we should not.
- Have your wife, husband or someone in the family give you a massage.
You’d be the first to admit that this is the safest way. True, probably not the best rub, but you decide what’s more important. And there are many videos online – one can learn how to pull those muscles back. And there is time. Plus, is also the most affordable. Though that I can’t bet.
- Find a massage therapist you can trust.
“Trust is a must. And it’s good for you too.” That’s how an older song goes. And it’s a valid reason. You could ask a friend or a colleague to recommend you a massage therapists. And then, when you trust that therapist you can contact him/her when needed. This relationship may bring mutual benefits to both parties.
- Find a rated massage provider
This is still a better idea than just getting a massage at the shop in the corner. Not all massage establishments are alike. Even if you need to pay a little more know that safety is worth. Places with reputation strive to keep that reputation. They will hire massage professionals and will check their health as a routine. This is important.
- Finding massage therapists online
This option requires most scrutiny as anybody could offer massage services on the internet. It is wise to ask for their massage certification proof. Unless you’re much into adventures and risk. There are quite a few options out there. Best to stick with massage listings that give you the most options. One we recommend is Book Massage App on Google Play, which is only for Android phones. Should you decide to use their services, know that there are a few ways to contact the therapists. The simplest would be a booking via the email. But if you’re looking for an immediate answer there are also these options: phone call, SMS and Whatsapp contact. What is best is that you can post a rating after receiving the service. These ratings and reviews bring more trust into the application community.
Stay optimistic and smile
So, it is not really the end of the world. You could get a massage during the coronavirus times. And other dark times. Let’s keep ourselves optimistic, constructive and ingenious.
