Prior to the session, there are things that you and the therapist have to do so that your body can relax. It is highly advisable to spend some time proceeding the session at a steam room or even a sauna since it will help your muscles to ease. The therapist can put some music on that will help you loosen a little. It should be music that you are happy with.
It is always good for the therapist to talk about the technique she is using on you and to explain the oils and treatments. She should explain in a gentle manner. It is common knowledge that no one wants to have a chit chat during relaxing time but the information you will get will help you to describe what you want the next time you are going to have one.
The pressure or the strokes might be too much for you and it might hurt. Do not be afraid to tell the therapist to lessen the strokes as well as the pressure. If you want therapist to add more pressure, you should also let her know. She will stroke towards the heart as the reason being this is to increase the blood flow.
It is good for you to have a plenty of water after any type of a massage session. One of the reasons is that your body temperature is prone to change after a session so its healthy to drink liquids. Another thing is that your body will be drained and it may need water to replenish itself. Toxins from the body are also released after a full body kneading.
There are no restrictions on what you are supposed to wear to kneading session but its highly recommended that you adorn clothes that are loose fitting. There are parlors that have paper briefs for the clients to put on. You can even wear a dry swim wear. The spas have private rooms that you can go change to something comfortable.
You are not supposed to carry your phone or laptop or even a laptop into a spa. A spa is for relaxation and these gadgets are considered a distraction and it does not help in a case where you want to just relax and shut out the world. It will also affect the other spa users so it will be mindful of you not to carry them or leave them at the locker room.
All in all, if you get a hotel that has both accommodation and massage services, it will be to your advantage. You can have as many massages as you want of which they will just be added to your bill. You will pay the bill when it is your time to check out hence it will not be cumbersome for you.
