First Massage Experience

Is this your first massage?

If you've never been to a massage therapist before, you are in for a treat. Regardless of whether you are coming for medical reasons or just to relieve stress, massage can have an amazing curative effect. Therapeutic massage releases chronic tension and pain in muscles, improves circulation and respiration, increases flexibility in the joints and reduces mental and physical fatigue. In addition, therapeutic massage is one of the most effective means available to combat stress.

WHAT IS THE FIRST APPOINTMENT LIKE?

You will first be asked to fill out a confidential health history form. This information helps your therapist to assess your needs and to design treatment plan that is suitable for your condition. This is necessary since there are some circumstances for which massage is not appropriate. After an initial interview, you will be left in private to undress and get on the table, covering yourself with the sheet.

You will be warmly covered at all times except for the area being worked on. In all cases, your modesty will be respected.

Generally, the therapist will check with you several times during the session about the pressure that is being used. Remember, the more feedback that you give, the better the massage will be for you.

Massage often finds "tender points" in the body. These are areas that you may be unaware of, but are tender or even painful to the touch. They may even be the cause of pain that is felt in other areas. The therapist is trained in ways of lessening and relieving them.

You just relax, close your eyes, breath deeply, listen to the soft music in the background and enjoy your massage treatment.
