The Professional Touch Massage Therapy & Spa Center
|Before a massage, it is a good idea not to eat a large, heavy meal containing sugar,|
|caffeine, or other stimulants.|
|Before the session begins, the therapist will ask questions regarding your medical history,|
|physical condition, medications, and problem areas which may be restricting range of |
motion or causing pain.
|The session will be administered in a quiet, peaceful room with soft lighting and pleasant|
|You will disrobe in private, position yourself on the massage table, and cover yourself with|
|a sheet. You may leave undergarments on or take them off, as you prefer, since the |
therapist will drape the sheet so that the only part of the body uncovered is that which is
being worked upon at the time.
|As the session begins, close your eyes and try to relax as completely as possible; when|
|the therapist is moving your limbs through their range of motion, you do not need to help. |
Conversation, as enjoyable as it may be, can also be distracting to your relaxation and to
the concentration and efforts of the therapist. People often fall asleep off and on during the
session; feel free to nap.
|After your massage, unless there is a prohibiting condition, you may want to drink extra|
|water for the next 24 hours to help flush out the toxins released by the session.|
|Be sure to ask your therapist any questions you may have about massage therapy in|
|general or your session in particular.|
