Guidelines for maximizing your massage/energy work experience

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



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!!!
