tips to get the most from your massage
1. Do not eat just before a massage session. Let your body digest your meal first.
2. Be on time. If you arrive in a frenzied, rushed state, it may take longer to relax.
3. Take off only as much clothing as you are comfortable removing.
Privacy: the therapist will leave the room while you undress. A sheet is
only the part of your body being massaged, ensuring that modesty is
respected at all times. After the massage is finished, you will be provided
with privacy while dressing.
4. Communicate with your massage therapist:
Give accurate health information, including any allergies to oils and
lotions. Let the massage therapist know your expectations and reasons
for the massage.

hardening your muscles during the massage is counterproductive.
7. Drink extra water after your massage.
8. Massage has its greatest benefits over time. The therapeutic effects of
massage are cumulative. The more often you get a massage, the better
you will feel and the more quickly your body will respond. From one session
to the next, relaxation deepens as the chronic patterns of stress in the body
are affected and released. If you're getting massage to address chronic
muscle tension or recovery from a soft tissue injury, more than one session
is usually needed.
