For therapeutic massages, you need a professional who is trained to revive you from head to toe. To benefit from a deep tissue facial and body massages that relax all the major muscle groups and joints fully, you to be prepared and open to the experience. Here’s how you can prepare to maximize the effects of the spa treatment:
If you rush in at the last minute, not only will it take time for you to relax and enjoy your treatment, but may also prevent you from fully benefiting from it. Arrive early for your appointment so you have time to complete the paperwork, filling in all the required details. This helps your spa specialist to understand your requirements better. There are medical questions to address, personal history for them to note such as allergies and surgeries, and family ailments. Don’t hide any issue. State your needs clearly. If you prefer a female therapist and more pressure in certain areas, make your requirement known up-front. If you don’t speak up and state your needs, you may not enjoy the treatment nor benefit as much from it. The massage therapist is there to listen to you, guide you and attend to your needs the way you want.
Relax and Let Go
Leave your cell phone in your bag and turn it off. Let go off your stress and worries. The more relaxed you are, the better the massage therapist can treat you. If it’s the first spa treatment at the clinic, start small. Try a facial or 30-minute service, see how you feel and then increase it the next visit. Don’t stop yourself from snoozing off if you so desire. It’s common to nod off when you are completely relaxed in a spa treatment. Don’t be stressed about the way you look through the treatment either. Spa models in magazines are just that – coiffed up models! It is natural to be dishevelled through the session. Just unwind, let go and be in the moment to benefit from the experience.
Avoid a Full Meal
Never have a big meal before you walk in for a spa appointment. You will feel bloated, find it difficult to lie down straight for the session or feel nauseated. Eat light at least an hour before you walk in or better still, after your treatment. Hydrate yourself well. Visit the washroom before your treatment so you don’t have to leave midway and interrupt the session.
