More and more men are enjoying the benefits of a regular massage now. Not only can they provide a relaxing way to recover from modern life but they also leave your body feeling in top shape. From hot stone massages to ease sore backs to aromatherapy massages to make your senses come alive, massages are definitely worth trying.
However, going for your first session can be daunting and leave you wondering about massage etiquette. While there are some general tips for first massage experiences to follow, there is no need to worry unduly.
But what massage etiquette tips should you know before your first session?
It is key to be on time for your massage. This will mean you turn up in a relaxed frame of mind and are ready to get the most from your treatment. It is also good manners and means that the professional masseur/masseuse assigned to your session is not hanging around for you to arrive.
Communicate with your massage therapist
Having a massage is a personal thing and people like to enjoy it in their own way. Some will like to have music in the background to help them relax while others will not for example. It is key to let the therapist know your preferences at the start of your first session. In addition, talking to them before you start will give you a chance to tell them about any allergies to oils you have or any health conditions they should know about.
Tell your massage therapist if you feel discomfort
One massage etiquette tip for your first session is remembering to report any discomfort felt whilst being worked on. While you may feel some pressure on muscles during your treatment, this should not be painful. By letting your therapist know, you allow them to vary their hand movements or technique to avoid it.
