Tips for first time massage
Have you never been to a massage before? Not sure what to do and what to expect? And even if you have already gone for massage, you will be interested in this article. To begin with, we will tell you what you can and what is better not to do before the massage.
Do not eat a lot, at least an hour before the session. The digestive process requires a lot of energy from the body, and you just can not relax in the massage process! In addition, if you lie on your stomach, discomfort will definitely not take long. If you are very hungry before the session, try to do something light, like a salad.
Do not be late for the session. Always come a few minutes before it starts. Hurry will make you nervous and tensed, and you should approach the session in a calm and relaxed state! In addition, if you are late, your session time may be reduced.
We strongly recommend psychologically relaxing before a session – relax, meditate, breathe deeply, clear your mind of unnecessary thoughts. But in no case do not drink alcohol, even a little – this will reduce the therapeutic effect of massage to nothing!
We also advise you to remove all jewelry, especially necklaces and bracelets – they can interfere with the masseur.
PERFUME AND PERFUME
Refrain from using a strong perfume before a session. Firstly, not all smells are equally pleasant for everyone, and secondly, a massage therapist may have an allergy. Deodorant is also desirable to choose odorless.

Some people think that massage can help you feel better with a cold, but in fact, it will only make you feel worse – massage will warm your body, improve blood circulation, which can only stimulate the spread of infection and inflammation. Also think about the fact that you can infect a massage therapist or clients who come after you!
Initial examination (conversation how the session will be held). Openness of the client in relation to the massage therapist is the key to a quality massage. A professional massage therapist begins the session with questions: “Are there any complaints? What worries you? What problems do you want to solve with massage? After the conversation, the masseur develops an individual action plan specifically for this client and this massage session. In this article we will tell you how, as a client, you can influence the quality of massage!
Never forget to tell the massage therapist about all your problems, recent injuries, especially sensitive places, about what you love about massage and what you don’t and so on. Openness on your part will help the massage therapist to choose the right work technique – this is the guarantee that you will get what you came for.
During the session, do not hesitate to speak if you are in pain, discomfort, or feel any other kind of discomfort. Communication massage therapist with the client can make any good massage excellent, the best. You just need to know what to say to your massage therapist.

YOUR PERSONAL SPACE DURING MASSAGE SESSION
conventional wisdom, during a massage session, the client should not be completely undressed. Masseurs respect your personal space – first of all, you should be comfortable. There are situations when some part of your clothes may interfere with the massage therapist. For example, a bra can interfere with a masseur if he works with his back, in particular with the thoracic spine. But in any case, customer comfort is paramount. If this topic really worries you, for example, you are very shy, then start undressing only when the massage therapist leaves the office. Always remember to be covered with a towel or sheet. Only that part of the body with which the massage therapist will work will be open. Before the session, tell the masseur if you do not accept touch
