Ten Top Tips To Help You Enjoy Your Massage

We thought we’d post a few tips to make sure you enjoy your massage. They may seem obvious, but you never know

1. Communicate to your therapist! If the massage pressure is too hard or too light, don’t be afraid to speak up. Your therapist is there to help you, not injure you. Tell them what hurts, what’s sore, and what does not need to be touched. Especially let them know of any health conditions, allergies or skin sensitivity

2. If you have to go to the bathroom, make sure to go before your massage. There’s nothing worse than holding it in while your therapist is pressing your lower back! (Of course we have complimentary bathroom and toilet facilities that you may use)

3. If your therapist is chatting and you prefer silence (or you would like to sleep) just say so, she will not be offended!

4. Your treatment room has its own volume control so you can ask to turn the music volume up or down to your heart’s content (but we can’t change the music – that’s the same in every room)

5. “Undress to your comfort level” means you can wear whatever you want. If you’re more comfortable keeping certain garments on, so be it, we will work around you

6. Feel free to use your phone during your massage but please keep the sound off – nothing annoys other clients quite like a mobile ringing and beeping. That said, we would recommend that to get the most out of your visit, you keep a clear head and avoid your mobile altogether

7. Please try not to eat right before your massage, or if you do we suggest a fairly light meal or snack. You will be spending most of the time on your front so if you’ve eaten a big meal that may well be uncomfortable

8. Please try to arrive for your massage on time – if you have rushed or you’re worrying about missing some of your treatment then it will be that much harder to relax. Directions to find us from London Liverpool Street (and other places) are at the bottom of the page

9. Don’t leap right off the table at the end of the massage – you will be nice and relaxed and there is a chance you get light headed

10. Drink extra water after your massage – it’s important to stay well hydrated. Just like when you exercise, massage dehydrates muscles and removes electrolytes. In order to help your kidneys process and flush out toxins, it’s good to drink extra water
