On your journey of self-care, you booked yourself a massage therapy session, excited beyond belief for the day your appointment would come.
But now that it’s finally near, you’re realizing you don’t know what to expect. Are you allowed to come in early? Will you need to remove your undergarments when you finally go under the towel? Will there be jingly-jangly music involved?
For all these questions and more, Eden Massage Therapy Services in Fayetteville, NC, has some answers and tips so you can be relaxed and happy during your first session!
Preparing for Your Massage Therapy Session--Here's What You Should Do
-Don't Eat Right Before
Give your stomach some time to relax. Go to the bathroom if need be before you go for your massage. And don't drink too much water. Otherwise, you'll need to get up during the session, and that'll just ruin the mood.
It's better if you're a bit early, rather than on time or late. You''ll be in a frenzied state last-minute, which will add to your anxiety more. Getting there early will let you relax and breathe.
-Be Comfortable About Your Clothing Practices
We never ask clients to remove all their clothing. It actually depends on how comfortable you are. If you want to be massaged in your birthday suit, it's up to you. If not, wear your undergarments or even a pair of shorts with a top. Your therapist will know how to work around it.
-Talk to Your Therapist About Your Needs
Whether you're allergic to any cosmetics, oils or lotions; want the massage therapist to play music or not; prefer them to stay quiet or talk; or if there's any discomfort you've felt that you want addressed-your therapist is there to make sure that you feel relaxed and happy. Theyll follow your instructions to the letter.
-Allow Your Mind to Relax
Often, people get so nervous about their first massage that they don't let their mind relax. And that just ruins the experience altogether.
Repeat to yourself: you’re in safe hands, hands that have been trained to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. So, take deep breaths and let your mind wander. Think happy thoughts or just focus on the sounds and sensations around you. Let yourself be in the moment.
