First Time Massage? Here are some questions and answers that might prepare you to fully relax during your massage.

Q: I'm having my first massage and am nervous and don't know what to expect. Do you have any advice?

A: It is normal to be nervous for your first massage session. A licensed massage therapist will be familiar with your first-time anxiety and will know how to put you at ease so you will benefit from your therapeutic massage. When in doubt, always ask questions. Your therapist will be honest and work with you regarding anything you aren't sure about or don't understand. Be a responsible consumer and make sure you understand what goes on during the massage and what you should do when the massage is over. Communication is a two-way street, so make sure you communicate any questions or concerns with your massage therapist in order to get the best therapeutic massage that meets your need.
