How to Make the Most of Your Massage

 

Modesty

During your massage session, you will be draped with a sheet.  You will choose whether to be fully or partially unclothed under the drape.  Only the area of the body being massaged will be uncovered, such as the back, legs, arms & neck.

Oil

Light oil is used to enable the therapist's hands to slide over the skin without causing chaffing or pulling hair.  Inform the therapist if you have any allergies that might be aggravated by the oil.

Makeup and Hair

If you prefer that hair and makeup not be disturbed, inform the therapist not to massage your face or scalp.

Pain

You may or may not feel muscular discomfort during your massage.  Your comfort level will be respected.  Give feedback before, during and after your massage.  You may experience mild soreness the day after a massage, much the same as your muscles feel after having worked out.  Drinking plenty of water will help remove toxins flushed out during a massage.

Massage Style

Many massage therapists combine styles and techniques.  An integrated approach of Swedish, Therapeutic and Sports is most commonly used.  Let your therapist know if you have a preference.

Participate in your session

Ask questions.  Let the therapist know if you ever feel uncomfortable.  Above all, relax, and enjoy your massage.
