You'd think it's easy to relax, right? Maybe that's not exactly so! Here's a list of helpful hints on how to best enjoy a massage therapy session.
1 Set aside enough time. Don't feel rushed. Don't check your watch or the wall clock. Just let time pass.
2 Breathe deeply. It does help. You'll begin feeling better, as more oxygen floods your tissues.
3 Provide feedback. If the therapist is using too much pressure, say something. Likewise if it's barely noticeable pressure!
4 Turn off your phone. Cell phones can really disrupt your peace of mind. If you leave it nearby and choose not to answer, you may end up tense, wondering who was calling.
5 Find a therapist that's good. Some therapists just aren't very good at what they do. Others seem gifted with some sort of helpful, even healing, touch. If the therapist is nice, but is lousy, move on.
6 Request a modality you like. Deep tissue's not for everyone; neither is rolfing. Trigger Point Therapy is great, but not suited for all people.
7 Tell the therapist what sort of pressure is best. And then once she starts, make sure you both are working with the same definitions! To some, deep pressure means a lot of force. To others, deep pressure really means less. Make sure you don't endure a torture session; deep tissue massage may hurt, but it shouldn't hurt so badly that you feel like passing out.
8 Turn down the lights. Burn candles. Play your favorite meditation CD on your home stereo, if it's an at home massage. If it's at a spa, bring your CD. They usually have a player. Some spas have docking stations for iPods, also.
9 Consciously work to relax your body, from your toes to your head. Focus on one part of your body at a time.
10 Find a therapist you feel comfortable with. This is essential. We all have personal preferences, in terms of people's personalities. If someone is a good therapist, but their personality grates you, it may be best to move on. But if they're a great therapist, and they annoy you, it may be best to just endure it. Great therapists are difficult to find!
11 If opting for an at-home session, schedule your massage for a time when the kids are out, if possible, or make sure they are occupied and have plenty to do for the hour. Otherwise, you may spend precious session time up and about, not receiving a massage.
