Here are some tips to help you make the most of your massage:
- Allow plenty of time to get to your appointment: Arriving early ensures you can relax and mentally prepare yourself for the massage. Rushing to your appointment can leave you feeling stressed and reduce the overall benefits of the treatment.
- Undress to your comfort level: Most massages are performed with the client undressed, but it’s important to feel comfortable during the session. Typically, you will be asked to undress to your underwear, but you can choose to leave on as much clothing as you prefer. I will ensure your privacy and only uncover the area of the body they are working on at any given time.
- Remove jewellery and accessories: Before your massage begins, it’s best to remove any jewellery, watches, or other accessories. These items can get in the way or cause discomfort during the massage. Additionally, removing them prevents the risk of accidentally damaging or misplacing them.
- Drink water after your massage: Massage therapy can release toxins and improve circulation, so it’s essential to stay hydrated afterward. Drinking water helps flush out any waste products that may have been released during the massage and can prevent dehydration.
- Avoid alcohol before and after your session: Alcohol can impair your senses and affect your body’s response to the massage. It may hinder your ability to fully relax and diminish the benefits of the treatment. It’s best to avoid alcohol consumption for a few hours both before and after your massage.
- Take time to relax after the massage: After your session, it’s beneficial to take some time for yourself to relax and allow the effects of the massage to fully settle in. Avoid rushing back into a hectic schedule or engaging in strenuous activities. Instead, find a quiet space to rest, meditate, or simply enjoy the post-massage bliss.
Remember, effective communication with your massage therapist is key to ensuring you receive the treatment that meets your specific needs and preferences. Don’t hesitate to discuss any concerns or questions you may have before, during, or after the session.
