Nowadays, it is easy to forget the number of things our body does for us and how much it gets strained. If you are feeling tired, much stressed or your muscles acting out due to bad posture or exhaustion then what you need is a massage. What should you keep in mind before your first session?
Before the session
Do not consume caffeine, alcohol or a lot of sugar. If you are feeling hungry opt for a light meal in place of a hearty one.
Duration and type of massage.
Most of us agree that the longer a massage therapy lasts, the better. As a start, it would be a good idea if you started with an hour-long session, especially if you choose a strong type of massages such as deep tissue or athletic massage.
If you don’t know which massage type you want to pick, you can start with the most popular type of massage, Relaxant (Swedish) or with a Holistic massage. Alternatively, you can ask for your therapist’s input in choosing a massage type that would better suit the needs of your body.
What to wear
We urge you to wear something that makes you feel comfortable. Some people feel comfortable keeping their underwear on while others prefer it off; with the latter option, you will be required to cover yourself with a towel.
The majority of our therapists utilize cold-pressed almond oil. However, depending on the therapist and the type of massage they will be performing there might be other(s) oil(s) used.
If you are allergic to a type of oil it would be best to inform us when making the appointment as well as your therapist before the session begins.
After the session
Drink plenty of water. It would be best if you rested after the session. Do not go out or perform intense activities for the next two hours. Do not have a shower immediately after the session, let the oil soak into your skin.
