How to receive a massage

If you have not previously enjoyed a massage, you may feel uneasy or shy. We have put together some guidelines that should put you at ease and assist you in receiving the maximum benefit from your massage session.

  • Take a warm shower or whirlpool prior to your massage.
  • Your body will be professionally draped at all times. Should there be any massage technique you are uncomfortable with, please communicate it to your therapist.
  • Advise your therapist about areas of your body that are injured, sore, or tense.
  • Mention any medical conditions such as pregnancy, high blood pressure, heart problems, headaches, varicose veins or recent surgery to your therapist.
  • If you are suffering from a cold, or flu, or a skin rash, please advise your therapist, as massage will often increase the health risk and discomfort brought about by this ailment.
  • During the session, close your eyes and allow yourself to relax as completely as possible. Focus your attention on breathing slowly and deeply.
