A quiet, dimly lit room with soft music playing in the background is ideal. Using a massage table is ideal. Our therapists will make sure you will not be interrupted so you can fully relax and enjoy the experience.

Drink plenty of water.
There are many benefits to drinking plenty of water prior to a massage. Massages help to release toxins from the muscles, and water helps to flush these toxins out of the body. Drinking water also helps to rehydrate the muscles, which can be beneficial after a strenuous massage session. Additionally, water can help to reduce any soreness or stiffness that may occur after a massage. So, if you’re looking to maximize the benefits of your massage, be sure to drink plenty of water!

This will help to ensure that you get the most benefit from the massage.
Tips for Giving a Great Massage
Our therapists pay close attention to the below areas with each session.
Warming up your hands
Start by warming up your hands. You can do this by rubbing them together or running them under warm water for a few seconds.
Slow, smooth strokes
Use slow, smooth strokes when massaging. Avoid jerky movements as they can be painful.
Pay attention to the person you’re massaging. Watch for any cues that they may be in pain or uncomfortable.
Be sure to use a good amount of pressure. A light massage will not be very relaxing.
Cool down the muscles
End with a few slower, lighter strokes to cool down the muscles.
The Aftercare for a Massage Session
Drink plenty of water
Drink plenty of water after your massage session to help flush out toxins that have been released from your muscles.
Avoid caffeine and alcohol for at least 24 hours after your massage, as these can dehydrate your body and make it harder for your muscles to recover.
Apply ice to sore areas
Apply ice to any areas that are feeling particularly sore or inflamed. This will help reduce swelling and pain.
Warm bath or shower
Take a warm bath or shower after your massage to further relax your muscles and help them heal.
Avoid strenuous activity
Avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours after your massage, as this can aggravate sore muscles and delay healing.
