Receiving a professional massage for the first time is both exhilarating and exciting, but like many first-timers, you may have questions.
When making your first appointment, feel free to ask questions about different services offered. It is to both your benefit and the Massage Therapist to know in advance what service best fits your expectations.
There are several preliminary physical things you should do before your visit:
- Men—shave first if you are getting a facial massage
- Don’t wear jewelry
- Turn off your cell phone
Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your appointment to relax and get ready for your session. There should also be some intake paperwork that will need to be completed. Remember to use the bathroom before you begin your session.
The massage experience.
Before your massage, talk to your Massage Therapist and share any sensitivity, injuries or chronic problems you may have or have had in the past. The therapist leaves the room to allow you time to undress and position yourself comfortably under the linens.
During the massage, feel free to express any modifications you would like to occur:
- Lowering music
- Changing lighting
- Talking or no talking
- Adjusting pressure
Ask any questions you may have about the therapy at any time.
After your massage.
Once your session is complete, your Massage Therapist will leave the room, allowing you to dress. Be careful as your body may be a bit unsteady. You will want to begin hydrating after your massage as Massage Therapy releases toxins. Water will help these toxins leave your body.
