What to Expect from Your Massage
Your first massage
You are joining a growing number of men and women who have found therapeutic massage to be a valuable addition to their health and fitness routines. Many people seek massage therapy as a natural means to promote healthy body functioning, and to enhance the body's own restorative powers.
How do I choose a massage therapist?
Which massage therapist is right for you depends on many factors. Some common considerations are approach of style, qualifications and gender. All of our therapists are licensed massage therapists with extensive training and experience.
Approach of style
Many massage therapists use an eclectic approach to their work, combining several different massage styles. The two most common techniques are Swedish massage and Oriental body work styles, such as shiatsu and acupressure. Talk to your massage therapist to find out if his/her style is suitable for you.
Why are you getting a massage?
Your massage therapist will want to know why you are getting a massage. An experienced massage therapist will plan the session to address your needs and desires. The most common reasons are:
- General relaxation
- Relieve headaches
- Relieve sore or tight muscles
- Improve circulation
In the initial interview, let your therapist know what you are looking for, and discuss how his or her approach can help you.
What are your concerns about the session?
Discuss with the massage therapist any concerns you have about the upcoming session. It is important that you are comfortable during your massage. Here are some commonly expressed concerns of newcomers to massage:
- Modesty: In a massage session, you will be draped with a sheet and a blanket. You may choose to be totally or partially unclothed under the sheet. As each part of the body is being massaged, it is uncovered. You will be conservatively draped at all times. Many people prefer to wear undergarments during a massage. Let the massage therapist know what you are comfortable with.
- Talking: Talking during the massage is optional. Some people prefer silence, especially during the massage for general relaxation, while others like a more social interaction. Always feel free to give the therapist feedback on anything causing discomfort. The therapist may request feedback from you, especially when addressing a specific problem.
- Oil and lotion: Oil or lotion is commonly used as a lubricant to enable the massage therapist's hands to slide over your skin without causing chaffing or pulling hair. Inform the therapist if you have any allergies that could be aggravated by the lubricant used.
- Makeup and hair: Massage of the face, scalp or neck may result in disturbing your makeup or hair style. Let the therapist know if this is a concern. They may modify their technique, be especially careful, or skip an area altogether.
- Pain: Whether you will feel any pain during a massage depends on many factors, including your physical condition, the reason for the massage, your pain tolerance, and the therapist's technique. Discuss this with your therapist before the massage and give feedback during the session. Tense muscles are often sore, and may hurt a little when massaged. Sometimes there is delayed soreness after a massage. Take a hot shower or bath, and drink plenty of water to help remove waste products flushed out during a massage. The more massages you receive, the less likely you will receive post-massage soreness.
Are there any restrictions?
There are situations in which caution should be taken before receiving a massage. It is generally agreed that persons with uncontrolled blood pressure, heart disease, recent surgery or fractures, phlebitis, fever, and other problem conditions should consult their doctors for any restrictions on receiving a massage.
Should I shower before my massage?
If you are getting a massage after a workout, you will be required to take a shower.
What health information should I give?
You will be required to complete a health questionnaire prior to your massage to inform your therapist about your past and current health. This information is used to help plan the massage session, and to ensure your safety. Important information includes any major health problems you have or medications you are taking, allergies, state of pregnancy, and recent accidents and injuries.
Some general advice
Be an active participant in your massage session. Ask questions about things you don't understand, make your wishes known, and let the therapist know if you are uncomfortable at any time. Above all, relax and enjoy your massage!
