How to get the most out of your massage session

March 2, 2017

 

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.

 

 

Make it a regular appointment


The more regularly you have a massage, the more the effects will build up and you’ll start to feel the benefits. Just having a massage once a year at Christmas is nice but you’ll have to undo all those knots all over again each time.

 

 

Let us know when you’re ill


We’ll ask you about long term or chronic conditions when you first come to us, but if you pick up an injury or develop an illness, we also need to know. Although pregnancy isn’t an illness, please tell us about this, too, as it can affect some of the techniques we use and what essential oils can be used in some types of massage, like an aromatherapy massage.

 

If you have a minor infection, like a cold or flu, call your massage therapist in advance to see if it’s wise for you to attend. Sometimes, a massage can make illnesses worse because while your body is already using your lymphatic system to fight the infection, a massage can stimulate it even more. This is especially true for deep tissue and Swedish massage. If you have any contagious skin conditions, such as athlete’s foot, you should also let your therapist know.

 

Most of these tips are common sense really, but keeping them in mind should make all of your massage treatments more enjoyable and effective. Enjoy your massage!
