What To Expect At A Massage Session


You have most likely heard other people talk about how relaxing a massage can be. If you have decided you would like to have a massage of your own, you may be a bit apprehensive about what to expect. Having a massage will be pleasurable and there is nothing to be afraid of.

Here is a timeline of what happens from the time you get to the massage parlor until the massage is completed to help you feel better about what is to come:

Booking Your Appointment

When you call to make an appointment, you may be asked why are are coming in to get a massage. Most people do so to relax or to relieve muscle tension. If you have any prior injuries that may affect how your tolerate a massage, let the service know in advance. They will ask you for medical history information, as well.

When You Arrive To Your Appointment

When you arrive for your massage, you will be introduced to your massage therapist. After a short survey to find out what type of service you would like to have, you will be able to go into the room where you will be having the procedure done.

Your massage therapist will leave to allow you time to undress. You will be able to leave on as much or as little clothing that you wish for your massage. When you have it done, you will never be completely unexposed, and you will always retain modesty while having your massage. You will then get onto the massage table and lie either on your back or your belly depending on where you would like the massage therapist to begin.

Enjoying Your Massage

Your massage therapist will knock on the door to make sure you are prepared and they will start to massage your body. Most massage rooms will have a heated blanket to lie on, which will help you relax. A sheet will be kept over your body and it will be moved out of the way when the massage therapist starts working on a part of your body.

You will never be completely exposed and the sheet will cover all areas that are not being worked on. Your massage room may have light music and dimmed lighting to help set a tranquil mood.

If you feel the massage therapist is using too much pressure when they are giving the massage, make sure you speak up so they can lighten the amount given. If there are any areas of the body you would rather be avoided, let them know this too. You will soon be relaxed and enjoying the feel of the muscles being soothed while you are lying down.

Making Changes With Vision Therapy

When my daughter began having academic problems in school and acting out, I knew that something wasn’t right. Her teachers wanted me to put her on ADD medications, but I didn’t think that that was the right course for us. I had serious doubts that ADD was what was causing her problems. I took her to several different specialists before discovering that her issues in school were actually do to a visual processing problem. The doctor recommended vision therapy, not medication, to help correct the problem and get her back on track. The exercises are really starting to pay off, and she’s showing great improvement.
