How to Receive a Massage

It's not uncommon to feel uneasy or shy about receiving your first massage. The following list of guide lines will help put you at ease. Once you've experienced your first massage we feel confident that you will not hesitate to schedule another one.

  1. Try to arrive 10 min early so that you can slow down a few min before your massage.
  2. Undress completely and wear just a robe to your massage. Once you're in the room, you will be able to take your robe off and cover yourself in privacy. You will be draped with a sheet and large towel throughout the service, you will always be covered. 
  3. Talk to your therapist before your massage begins and tell her which areas you would like to focus on and any areas to be avoided.  Communication is the key to getting the massage you want.
  4. During your massage let the therapist know if you feel any discomfort. Don't be afraid to tell your massage therapist exactly what you want, they are here to make your service the best possible. During your session close your eyes and allow yourself to relax as completely as possible.
  5. Focus your attention on breathing slowly, deeply.
  6. Be limp like a rag doll. Do not try to help your therapist move your limbs into position.  Let your therapist do the work unless she requests assistance.

A massage carries the unique gifts and qualities of each massage therapist.
