During your massage therapy session, you should be able to let all your worries go so you can relax and unwind. To get the most out of your appointment, it’s always best to discuss any concerns you have with your therapist before your session begins. Remember, he or she is a professional who wants you to enjoy your experience to the fullest, so having an open discussion will only help to ensure that happens. Here are a few questions you may want to ask.
At what temperature do you keep your room?
Some clients get cold easily while some are hot all the time. Let your therapist know which temperature you prefer so they can try to keep the room as comfortable as possible and offer an extra blanket if needed.
What type of oils do you use?
Most therapists will use oils or lotions throughout the massage, so let your therapist know about any sensitivities or allergies to the ingredients in their products. There may be alternative products available to accommodate your needs.
Can we have a quiet session?
Some clients love to talk and listen to music throughout their session, while some like to stay completely silent. Be honest about which you prefer.
Can you work on this specific area?
If you have muscle soreness, kinks or headaches that have been bothering you, make sure to mention them. Your therapist will focus more time on those areas to provide relief.
Can I let you know if the pressure gets too deep?
Massage should never be painful, tell your therapist if you have sensitive spots where you don’t want a lot of pressure. And then continue to let them know how you’re feeling throughout the session.
How often should I come back?
Depending on whether you’re simply going for relaxation or you’re trying to address an injury, your therapist will provide the best plan of action for continued therapeutic success. Once a month may be sufficient for general wellness while weekly sessions may be best for managing pain.
