You can expect to have your massage in a serene, safe, and nurturing environment. You can expect to feel peaceful, relaxed and calm during and immediately after your massage. Since you know your body best, you can expect to be listened to if there are any specific area(s) you would like additional focus or special attention. Although I cannot fix you, I can assist your body in finding its way to optimal health through stress-relief and muscle relaxation.
I will greet you and have you fill out an initial intake form if it is your first massage at Bmore Skybound. We'll briefly discuss your goals for the session and then you will be left alone in the massage room to undress to your level of comfort. You'll get on the massage table, where you will cover yourself up with the top sheet (and blanket if it is a cooler day) provided. I will gently knock on the door and re-enter the room when you are ready.
It helps to be well hydrated. If possible, drink plenty of fluids the day before and day of your massage. However, I would recommend decreasing your intake the hour before your massage so you don't have to go to the bathroom in the middle of your session and interrupt your relaxation. Other than that, try to relax for the duration of your massage therapy session. This is your time where you don't have to attend to anyone else. It is your time to unwind and let go.
The best way to tell if you are drinking enough is to check your urine. If it is clear and odor free, you are drinking enough. If it has a strong odor and color, then you probably will want to increase the amount you drink, unless you are on water restriction for medical reasons.
Talking is totally up to you. I will occasionally ask a few questions pertaining to your comfort level and how you are feeling in certain areas of your muscles. I have learned that some people relax by talking while others prefer to have their massage in silence. It's your massage - you choose if you want to talk or not. Oftentimes, people will start out talking, then "drift away" as the massage proceeds. Whatever helps you to relax the most is best.
That really depends on your schedule and your goals. Since the effects of massage therapy are cumulative (they add up over time), I recommend getting a massage regularly, much like an oil change for your car. Some clients come in once a week or every other week, some every 3 weeks, while some come once a month. All of them recognize the importance of self-care and the health benefits that they enjoy from receiving massage therapy on a regular basis.
