Massage Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Should I tip after a massage?
- Tipping after a massage is not a common practice, at least in Australia. Unlike other countries, such as the USA, where tipping of sometimes up to 20% is a normal occurrence. However, if you feel overly satisfied or you believe your expectations were far exceeded, tipping is a way of demonstrating your appreciation to your massage provider
What time of day should you get a massage?
- It depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you prefer to feel energised for your day, a massage earlier in the morning might be more suitable for you. On the other hand, if you prefer to feel relaxed or less stressed, a late afternoon or evening massage might be better suited for that objective.
Is it bad to get massages everyday?
- There has not been any literature suggesting that daily massages can be harmful or bad. However, it often depends on the individual tolerance to massage and the type of massage delivered. More superficial and lighter massages are typically more tolerable to people, while deep massage types, such as Shiatsu or deep tissue can result in discomfort and sometimes pain following. In these particular cases, it is often recommended to spread out messages to allow the body to recover and repair itself. Frequency of massages is entirely up to individuals preference, some people with more stressful lifestyles prefer more frequent compared to their less-stressed counterparts.

Should I shave before a massage?
