The first massage session - what to expect?

We will try to answer the most frequently asked questions during the first session.

So, the first massage session – what do you need to know?
Remember what your soreness is? Your massage therapist will ask you a number of questions in order to understand if you have any areas of your body that should be worked on in the first place. During the massage session, the the therapist will focus on these areas!

1. Comfort is the most important thing.

When you are going to massage, wear the most comfortable clothes. Before the massage, you will be asked to take off your clothes – naturally, to the level that is comfortable for you. When you lie on the table, the masseur will cover you with a sheet that will remain on your body throughout the session, with the exception of those places where the masseur will work.

2.You will get what you ask for.

The masseur will ask you if you need to apply more or less pressure during the massage, but if something is wrong, make sure you say it! As soon as you feel uncomfortable, tell the masseur immediately and he/she will do everything to eliminate it.

Remember that you should breathe normally during a massage session – you should not hold your breath. Proper, even breathing not only helps you fill your muscles with oxygen-rich blood, whose circulation improves during the massage, but also helps you relax.

4. Consultation after the massage.

 After the session, the massage therapist will discuss the results with you, describe the problems you have noticed and give you recommendations that will not only concern the frequency and duration of further massage sessions, but also general principles of taking care of your health. You will learn how massage can help you in the short and long term and will be able to ask any questions you may have.

5. A slight muscle pain after the massage is normal.

A slight pain in the muscles after a massage, similar to a pain after a workout, is the norm, because the effect of a massage is really similar to that of exercise.
