As a great way to address a variety of conditions, ailments, and injuries, massage can help foster and promote a positive and healthy mind and body connection. When you visit the Elements Massage Phoenix Camelback studio, here are a few helpful tips for how you can maximize the benefits of your session with one of our talented massage therapists:
It is a good idea to show up a few minutes early before your massage is scheduled. This way you can start the process of relaxing before you hit the studio table. As a buffer from the outside world, our waiting room introduces you to the atmosphere of relaxation. We invite you to drink some water, flip through a magazine, and get comfortable before we call you back. Plus, it’s never great to be rushing from work or home and feeling frantic. Build yourself in a little pre- massage time to mentally and physically prepare for your massage ahead.
Drinking water is key in maximizing the many benefits of massage. You should plan ahead and drink water before and plenty afterwards. Being well hydrated enables your body to handle the pressure and movements of massage and can help encourage quicker healing.
During your session, constant communication between your massage therapist and you important as only you can inform your therapist how things feel, if you’d like more pressure or less, and if you have any particular sensitive areas.
- Deep Breathing
Breathing is a way to bring about relaxation. Throughout your massage, you should be able to breathe deeply through the application of movement and pressure. Speak up to your massage therapist if the pressure is too hard or too soft!
Although far from a comprehensive list, these tips can help set the stage for an excellent massage before you even walk in the door! Book your next session with us now and put these points to use.
