How to Get the Most From Your Massage

Before the Session Begins: Please be showered and preferably do not eat for at least 30 minutes before our time together. It is always a good idea to drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your massage. Before your session remove all jewelry. Let your therapist know specific areas of your body that need special care or attention or about any health issues in your life. Please print and fill out the intake paperwork before you our time together.

During the Massage: Breathe deeply. Deep, even breathing reduces stress, improves circulation and aids a deeper state of relaxation. Communicate what you need. You know your body best. Let your therapist know if the pressure of the touch is too much or too little, or anything else you need for comfort during your session (volume of music, heat, light, etc.)

After the Massage: It is important to drink plenty of water in the hours and days following your massage. This will help flush out any toxins the massage releases and prevent you from being sore the next day. Drinking plenty of water is one of the best things you can do to improve your health every day.
