How to receive the greatest benefit from your massage?

Before: 

·        Avoid eating a big meal.

·        Avoid sugar, caffeine, and other stimulants.

·        Shower or bathe.

·        If available, use some form of heat (Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room) to relax your muscles.

·        Tell you massage therapist what is going on in your body (tension, aches, injuries, exercise routines, or operations) and any other information that might be useful.

 

During:

·        Your massage therapist doesn’t expect you to carry on a conversation, but do provide feedback about your massage.

·        Breathe deeply and normally.

·        Focus internally on whatever you massage therapist is working on.

·        Don’t give in to the natural tendency to hold your breath, if you feel any discomfort. This is when it is most important to breathe normally. Breathing facilitates the release of tension. Breathe into the area of discomfort.

·        Don’t worry about falling asleep during your massage. This is quite common, and you’ll receive all the benefits

      of massage therapy even if you are asleep.

 

After:

·        Shower or bathe with bath salts.

·        Drink extra water for the next 24 hours to release the toxins released by your massage therapy.

 

Finally Relax!

       

If you exert yourself physically or enter a distressful environment, you will defeat the whole purpose of your massage. Allow sufficient time for your body to reap the full benefit of your massage.

 the State.

Must I be completely undressed?

      Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed: however, you decide how

      much clothing you prefer to wear for your own comfort.

      Back to the top

 

Will the massage therapist be present when I disrobe?

      Your massage therapist will leave the room while you undress, relax on the table, and cover yourself with a

      clean sheet or towel.

       Back to the top

 

What parts of my body will be massaged?

      You and your therapist will discuss the desired outcome of your session. This will determine which parts of your

      body require massage. A typical full-body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head,

      neck, and shoulders. You will not be touched on or near your genitals (male or female) or breasts (female).

Will I be covered during the session?

      You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be

      exposed.

      Back to the top

 

Will lubricant be used?

      A light oil, lotion or gel will be used to permit your muscles to be worked without excessive friction. The lubricants

      hydrate the skin and are readily absorbed.

      Back to the top

 

What will the massage feel like?

      It depends on the technique used. In general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad flowing stroke

      that will help to calm you nervous system and relax muscle tension. As your body relaxes, the pressure will

      gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscle tension. If you feel any discomfort,

      let your massage  therapist know immediately, so that another technique can be used. You receive the greatest

      benefit from massage when your body is not resisting.

      Back to the top

 

How long is the session?

      The average full-body session lasts about 1 hour. Always arrange time for relaxing before and after the session.

       Back to the top

 

What should I do during the massage session?

       Make yourself comfortable. Your massage therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed

       throughout your session. Many people just close their eyes and relax completely. Feel free to ask you therapist

       questions about your massage.

       Back to the top

 

How will I feel after the massage?

       Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long term aches and pains caused by tension or

       repetitive activity. After the initial feeling of being slowed down people often experience increase energy,

       heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days.

 Back to the top

 

What are the benefits of massage?

Massage can help to release chronic muscle tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce

mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscle tissue, improve posture, and

reduce blood pressure.

Back to the top

 

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage inadvisable?

      Before you begin your session, you massage therapist will ask some general questions about your health.

      It is very important that you discuss any health problems you are experiencing and medications you are taking. 

      If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you consult with your doctor and ask for

      written recommendation for massage before you begin massage therapy.
