Getting a massage is unlike any other experience, and there are certain things that you can do to get the most out of it:
- Give yourself plenty of time- Being late is something that can and will stress many people out. If you arrive late for your appointment, it will take a lot more time to de-stress and relax, which is why it is always a good idea to give yourself the advantage by being early.
- Wear loose, comfortable clothes- If you aren’t comfortable taking all of your clothes off, it is okay, your comfort is always a priority. Wearing loose fitting clothes will allow your massage therapist to have more access to the areas you need massaged.
- Don’t be afraid to speak up- Let your massage therapist know if you have allergies or if you are experiencing any discomfort during the massage. Also be sure to let them know about temperature, music or lighting issues. Remember that the massage is all about you, so don’t be afraid to make it such!
- Relax!- Try to concentrate on what you are feeling. If your mind is rushing and your muscles are tense, you won’t be able to enjoy your massage.
