Helpful Massage Hints

  • Dress for your comfort level. There always will be sheets used to cover the parts of the body that the therapist is not working on.

  • Let the therapist know which areas need work.

  • Alert your therapist about the appropriateness of massage pressure throughout the massage. The therapist will be happy to answer any questions or discuss your concerns. Know that the massage therapist cannot diagnose or treat illnesses.

  • Breathe deeply - proper breathing energizes the body and relieves tension.

  • Let yourself relax and enjoy!

After Your Massage

Be sure to drink extra water for 24 hours after your massage. Massage works toxins out of tissues and into the circulatory system. Water will help flush the toxins out of the body.
