Massage

Here are some suggestions on how to get the most out of a massage.

  • Be sure to let the massage therapist know if you have any special needs.
  • Turn off cell phones. Reserve this time for yourself with no interruptions.
  • Take a few breaths as you allow the body and its parts to sink into the table.
  • Allow the practitioner to move your body parts and don’t try to help. This only tenses the muscles.
  • Closing your eyes during massage helps focus your attention out of the head and into the body.
  • Speak up if you are uncomfortable in anyway or you want to adjust the pressure lighter or deeper.
  • Finally, the massage is your opportunity to do something really, really good for yourself, relax and enjoy it!
