The Dos and Don’ts of Getting a Massage For the First Time

Entering the world of massage can be intimidating for anyone who hasn’t had a professional massage before. Perhaps you’ve received a gift certificate, sustained an injury, or decided that it’s time to take the plunge and have the experience – either way, it can be especially daunting for men. 

To make your first-time experience a fruitful one, we’ve listed out a bunch of Dos and Don’ts of getting a massage for the first time.

Do:

Take a shower beforehand

Masseuses are getting up close and personal with clients all day and for their sake, it’s important you are clean and well kept before arrival. This makes the experience more enjoyable for both of you – no-one wants to be rubbing you down straight from the gym!

Undress to the level you feel comfortable

Most masseuses will say this to you regardless, but it’s important to know that you won’t be judged for keeping your underwear on or taking them off. Remember they work with undressed humans all day every day and there’s nothing so strange or different about you that they won’t have seen it before!

Communicate

Is there something you don’t like, or a pre-existing injury you may have? Best to just let your masseuse know. Worst case scenario, pre-existing injuries can be made worse by a massage if the masseuse doesn’t know its there. Alternatively, maybe you’ve just got ticklish feet and don’t want them being touched. A massage is all about your relaxation, so there’s no shame in explaining what is and is not relaxing for you.

Don’t:

Force yourself through it. 

When you’ve paid for an experience, it can feel as if you have to endure the whole thing. However, taking breaks during a massage is perfectly acceptable, whether it’s to run to the toilet or allow any feelings of arousal to disperse. Again, your masseuse wants you to be relaxed and enjoy yourself.

Make lewd or inappropriate jokes and comments

It’s just a no-no. At best, it won’t land well and at worst you might find yourself barred from the establishment! 

There are plenty more things to look forward to when booking a massage than there are things to worry about. Don’t hesitate to dive into the world of massaging today – contact Cool Aroma Spa and book yourself in for a liberating and health-restoring experience!
