Your state of mind can determine the success or failure of your massage Traverse City. To ensure you get the best possible massage and value for your money, it is important to know how to approach a massage session. Here are a few tips for optimizing your massage experience.

Start by arriving early for your massage. This will keep you from feeling hurried or rushed. Arriving early can give you a few extra minutes to prepare for your massage, helping you truly relax and enjoy the benefits of your session. It will allow ample time for you to enjoy bottled water while you make your music and aromatherapy selection from our catalog. You can ask your massage therapist to help you select an aromatherapy oil or blend that will help address a particular issue, for example to help increase alertness or reduce stress. At Discover Massage Specialists we use only our own private label custom formulated all natural therapeutic grade essential oils.

Before you enter the building, turn off your mobile phone. In order to fully relax during your massage session, you need to avoid all distractions and interruptions. Don’t worry if you feel anxious about socializing with your massage therapist, or would simply prefer to stay silent. There is no need to talk, your massage therapist will understand if you want to enjoy your session quietly.

At the beginning of your session, there will be a brief discussion with your massage therapist where you will have the opportunity to tell them about any problem areas and describe the type of massage you would like. Don’t shy away from telling your therapist exactly what you want as this helps them do a better job. You don’t have to decide what type of massage you want; our team of highly trained and experienced therapists customizes each treatment differently for every individual to address their specific needs. For example, if you are stressed or are experiencing pain in a particular part of your body, this information will help them know how best to approach your massage session.

Remember that there is no need to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Your massage therapist will leave the room while you undress. If you would rather not remove some of your clothing, simply undress to your level of comfort. After you have undressed you will climb onto the massage table. At Discover Massage Specialists we keep heating pads under the sheets so your table will be warm and relaxing. Then simply pull the top sheet over yourself and relax while you wait for your massage therapist to return.

During your session, your massage therapist will only expose parts of your body that are being worked on. The rest will remain covered with a sheet and blanket. Be sure to communicate with your massage therapist during the massage if there is anything that they can do to improve your massage – such as more or less pressure.

Take a deep breath. Breathing normally during your massage will help you relax. Even when you are anxious or are having a sensitive area massaged, do your best to control your breathing. Hardening or contracting muscles during your session are counterproductive. Steady breathing will relax your mind and muscles.

Once the massage is over, do not get up too quickly. Give yourself a few minutes of quiet time for optimal relaxation, and then sit up slowly. After you have exited the dimly lit room you are likely to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help flush toxins out of your body and gain the maximum benefit from your session.
