Tips when receiving a massage?

  • Massage may not be a part of everyday life for you, and you may feel uneasy or shy about receiving your first massage. It’s important to recognize the goal of massage is to create a comfort level that will relax all of the senses. The utmost quiet will enhance the complete state of relaxation. After receiving your first massage, we’re quite confident that you’ll receive many more in the future.
  • Allow your therapist to move your limbs into position. Relax your arms, legs and head unless the therapist requests your assistance.
  • DO provide feedback in regards to the amount of pressure you prefer or need. (Deeper pressure vs. lighter pressure).
  • DO ASK questions about the procedures. Our therapists are well trained, ethical and professional. It’s our goal that you’re comfortable and well-informed.
  • Tell the therapist about areas of your body that are injured, sore or tense.
  • During the session, close your eyes and allow yourself to relax to the soothing music. Focus your attention on breathing slowly and deeply.
