No one can deny the good sides of a massage. It is a relaxing experience after a tiring day.Â Massage also helps you to get rid of anxiety and tension. Moreover, it also helps in a betterÂ circulation and it also carries oxygen to the cells. A good massage would help to relieve you ofÂ spasms and muscle cramps.
It also helps to carry away the waste products from the body. InÂ conditions like muscle spasms, sciatica and arthritis, massage can help. Massage is a bad ideaÂ in medical conditions like osteoporosis, infections, fever and inflammation.
It is important that you arrive a bit earlier than the time that is scheduled for the massageÂ session to start. You should be comfortable and in proper clothing that suits you and you areÂ ready for the massage. If you are in a hurry, wait for sometime and then let the session start.
You should not be too filled in your stomach before a massage starts. It you have just gorgedÂ down a pizza, you have to skip the session for that day. If you feel some pressure in theÂ stomach area while the massage is being done, be sure to tell the massage therapist to ease theÂ pressure.
Some people might have trouble with the clothes they wear during the massage session. BeÂ comfortable in what you wear, and try to be in some light fabric. There is absolutely no need toÂ remove clothing for a proper massage. Let the therapist work on the parts of the body that needÂ special care and massage. If you have any problem with the pressure, the movement of the hands,Â the lighting, volume of music and the room temperature, speak up.
It is very important to communicate to the therapist what you need of the massage. Some peopleÂ like to talk during a massage session while others prefer to keep silent. You decide forÂ yourself what you want and the therapist will follow. You should not tighten up or stopÂ breathing while the massage therapist tends to the affected area. While this is happening, letÂ the therapist know. You should try and be a little body centric in your thoughts and not letÂ your thoughts race helter-skelter. The concentration helps you to get more benefit out of theÂ massage.
If you sense something happening that you do not approve of during the session you can ask theÂ therapist to stop and stop the message session.
