It’s not just the massage therapist’s job to make sure that you have a fantastic experience every time you show up for a massage session; there are things you can do that will make sure you get what you want and need every time you have a massage.
Relax and unwind
We know that a massage is supposed to relax you but if you show up late, stressed and irritated, or on a timer you’ll not get the best out of your treatment. Turn off your cell phone to make sure you’re not interrupted. Better still; attend for your session after work or when you’re not working. If you have time, change out of your work clothes too and wear something easy to pull back on when your treatment is over.
Keep it clean
We shouldn’t have to say this but here goes; please shower before you come for a massage if possible. If it’s not possible, at least try to freshen up. We all sweat a little during the day. It’s not usually a problem, but if you’ve been working out hard, tidying the yard or it’s unusually warm; it’s best for everyone if you make an effort and have a quick shower before your massage appointment. If you’re too slippery it’s harder for a therapist to work properly and it can be quite unpleasant too.
Ask us anything
This one is most important if it’s your first time, or if you have any health issues you’re worried about. Therapists are used to first-timers feeling shy, so any questions about undressing, what happens in a massage or the nitty gritty of the session are welcome.
During your massage, speak out if the pressure isn’t what you’d like or the room isn’t the right temperature. Even tell us if you really hate the music! We want you to enjoy the massage, so we would prefer to know if you’re not.
