Get The Most From Your Massage
Give yourself plenty of time before or after your massage so you can enjoy the steam room, sauna or heated loungers. Warm muscles benefit most from bodywork.
A warm shower just before your massage is relaxing and washes away any salts, minerals or chemicals that could clog pores when mixed with massage oils. Then put on your robe and meet your therapist in the relaxation lounge.
UN(DRESS) THE PART
Unless the service description specifies that your massage will be received clothed, undress completely and wear just a robe to your massage. You will be able to take your robe off and cover yourself in privacy, and you will be draped with a sheet throughout the service. For services that are received clothed, shorts and a T-shirt are ideal.
TALK WITH YOUR THERAPIST
Before your massage, tell your therapist which areas you would like to focus on, and any areas to be avoided. During your massage, let your therapist know if you feel any discomfort. Communication is the key to getting the massage you want.
Close your eyes and allow your mind and body to enjoy the quiet. Focus on how you feel. Breathe deeply and let tension slip away with each breath. Remember, this time is for you.
