Have you ever tried a massage or had a bad experience with one and vowed to yourself to never go through that again? Well rumor has it that many people have never had a massage before.
Here are a couple of tips for you to think about if you have secretly wanted one, but don't like people touching you, had a bad one, heard horror stories or whatever has held you back from trying it out.
1) wear as little or as much clothing as you prefer, such as, tank tops, loose shorts, undergarments, nothing, it's all up to you.
2) tell your therapist what type of music you relax best to
3) let your therapist know if you want to talk or just be silent during session
4) tell your therapist what is bothering you most, if the pressure is too hard or too light, and most importantly what you need out of the session most.
The benefits of massage outweigh the fear of being uncomfortable because you are in control of your session.
