Massage Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What body parts are included in a full body massage?
A full body massage will include the head, neck and shoulders, arms, hands, legs, feet, hips and glutes as well as the back. Depending on the focus areas during treatment, this may change from time to time. The genital region is the only area that will never be massaged.
What do you wear when getting a massage?
Before treatment commences, a massage therapist may ask you to undress to where you are comfortable. Gowns are provided to patients to be put on to help cover parts of the body that are not being treated. Massage therapists will allow you to get undressed in the room by yourself and give you time to lay down on the table before they come back in.
Is it okay to get a massage while on period?
Receiving a massage during your menstrual cycle can be beneficial. It can help reduce pain and discomfort that are associated with cramps. Although it is beneficial, massage can increase the flow of your period so extra protection is suggested when receiving a massage.
What is the most relaxing massage?
The most common relaxing massage is the Swedish massage. This is a full body therapeutic massage, which aims to help relax muscles. This type of massage is ideal for those who don’t know if massage is for them or are sensitive to touch.
What can I expect from a full body massage?
A full body massage will include the head, neck and shoulders, arms, hands, legs, feet, hips and glutes as well as the back. Depending on the focus areas during treatment, this may change from time to time. The genital region is the only area that will never be massaged. During the treatment only areas that are being treated will be uncovered, the rest of your body will stay covered,
Should I shower before a massage?
A shower before a massage will help loosen and relax muscles. This will allow you to receive the most benefit out of the treatment. Showering will also help wash off any sweat or perspiration on the body, as well as any other environmental pollutants that may be on a person, because you don’t want this being rubbed all over you during treatment.
