The importance of a Massage

No one can deny the good sides of a massage. It is a relaxing experience after a tiring day. Massage also helps you to get rid of anxiety and tension. Moreover, it also helps in a better circulation and it also carries oxygen to the cells. A good massage would help to relieve you of spasms and muscle cramps.

It also helps to carry away the waste products from the body. In conditions like muscle spasms, sciatica and arthritis, massage can help. Massage is a bad idea 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 massage session to start. You should be comfortable and in proper clothing that suits you and you are 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 gorged down a pizza, you have to skip the session for that day. If you feel some pressure in the stomach area while the massage is being done, be sure to tell the massage therapist to ease the pressure.

Some people might have trouble with the clothes they wear during the massage session. Be comfortable in what you wear, and try to be in some light fabric. There is absolutely no need to remove clothing for a proper massage. Let the therapist work on the parts of the body that need special care and massage. If you have any problem with the pressure, the movement of the hands, 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 people like to talk during a massage session while others prefer to keep silent. You decide for yourself what you want and the therapist will follow. You should not tighten up or stop breathing while the massage therapist tends to the affected area. While this is happening, let the therapist know. You should try and be a little body centric in your thoughts and not let your thoughts race helter-skelter. The concentration helps you to get more benefit out of the massage.

If you sense something happening that you do not approve of during the session you can ask the therapist to stop and stop the message session.
