8 tips for the best massage...
Communicate for pure relaxation:
- Before the session, give accurate health information and let the massage therapist know your expectations and reasons for the massage.
- Allergies to oils and lotions - The therapist may use oil, lotion, or powders to reduce friction on your skin. If you are allergic to any oils, lotions, or powders, tell your massage therapist so he or she can use a substitute.
- Many massage therapists play recorded music during the massage session, but some clients find music distracting. If it's provided, let your massage therapist know if you have any music preferences or if you would prefer they turn off the music.
- Some people like to talk during a massage, while others remain silent. Tell your massage therapist what you prefer.
- During the massage session, report any discomfort, whether it's from the massage or due to any problems related to the environment such as room temperature, music volume, or lighting.
- Give feedback to the massage therapist during the massage on the amount of pressure, speed of hand movement, etc. If anything happens that you dislike or seems improper, you have the right to ask the massage therapist to stop. If necessary, you also have the right to end the session.
- Don't be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns. It's important that you be as comfortable as possible during your massage.
- Your massage therapist is a professional dedicated to his or her best to help you feel at ease.
In the event you cannot make your appointment please call (at a minimum of) four hours before your scheduled time to cancel. If you do not call to cancel at least four hours in advance or you do not show up for a scheduled appointment, you could be charged for a missed appointment.
Don't lose table time by arriving late for your appointment. We still have to finish on time! We suggest arriving ten minutes prior to your scheduled time.
