When you are shelling out $60 to $150 per hour, you want to get the best massage you can find. But how do you go about doing that?

Chances are, if you are aged 25 or older, you've had at least one professional massage. In fact, according to the 2009 American Massage Therapy Association consumer survey, an average of 22 percent of adult Americans received at least one massage between July 2008 and July 2009, and an average of 34 percent of adult Americans received a massage in the previous five years.

Nearly one-fourth of those massages were performed in a spa, while the remainder occurred in private practice offices, chiropractic offices, in-home, or other settings.
