What to expect on your first Massage appointment. It will begin with an introduction from your therapist. Your therapist will ask questions to better understand your health history and current medical condition. You can also share any medicines or supplements you are taking that could be affected by the massage. Be honest about your health, any pain you’re experiencing, and any concerns you have.
At the best chiropractors in Gilbert , AZ your therapist will also ask questions in order to design a therapy session that meets your needs, goals and expectations. Let the therapist know which areas of your body you would like worked on, any areas to avoid, and any techniques you want or don’t want.
Your therapist will then leave the room so that you can undress to your comfort level. When you are ready, lie down on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheet or other draping on the table. The therapist will knock before re-entering.
During the Massage
Draping. A professional massage therapist will never expose any private areas or any other areas you identify. Your therapist will drape your body, will only expose the areas she is working on.
Music. Your therapist may play music, but you can request a different type of music, or even request silence.
Relax and let your thoughts go. Focus on how the massage feels, your breathing and not on your thoughts.
Breathe slowly and deeply to help you relax. Breathe through any sensitive or deep massage. Be sure to let your therapist know if the pressure is too much or not enough.
After the Massage
When your massage session is ended, your therapist will leave the room so you can dress in private. Lie a few minutes on the table to get yourself grounded. Take your time dressing.
Drink plenty of water. Your therapist will definitely offer you water to help your body flush toxins released by the massage.
