Guidelines for maximizing your massage/energy work experience


Before:

  • Arrive a few minutes before your session to fill out or update an intake form
  • Ask questions or voice any concerns you may have
  • Inform the therapist of any health conditions or medications you are currently taking since there are some conditions that contraindicate massage or require certain considerations

During:

  • Let the therapist know if the pressure needs to be adjusted
  • If there are specific areas you feel needs more attention let the therapist know so that time will be better managed
  • Let the therapist know if you experience any discomfort

After:

  • Drink plenty of water. This will help flush out any toxins or impurities released from the muscles during the massage and it's always a good idea to stay hydrated
  • Keep in mind certain techniques such as deep tissue, trigger point therapy, etc. may leave you sore for a day or two
  • Consider getting massages on a regular basis as part of your health care regiment
  • Waiting too long between sessions can increase the amount of stress and tension in your body making it more difficult to break down and decrease the duration of the benefits
  • Try to find ways to relax and make time for yourself and the things you enjoy doing!!!

"Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not 'yours', not personal. They come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you."---Eckhart Tolle
