Massage Tips
h) I play recorded music during the massage session. Others find music distracting. If itís provided, let your massage me know if you have any music preferences or if you would prefer I turn off the music.
Some people like to talk during a massage, while others remain silent. Tell me what you prefer.

i) During the massage session, report any discomfort, whether itís from the massage or due to any problems or distractions related to the environment, e.g., room temperature, music volume, lighting, etc.

j) Give feedback to me during the massage on the amount of pressure, speed of hand movement, etc. If anything happens that you dislike or seems improper, you have the right to ask me to stop. If necessary, you also have the right to end the session.

k) Donít be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns. Itís important that you be as comfortable as possible during your massage. I am a professional dedicated to do his or her best to help you feel at ease.

l) Remember to breathe normally. Breathing helps facilitate relaxation. People often stop or limit their breathing when they feel anxious or a sensitive area is massaged.

m) Relax your muscles and your mind. Tightening up by contracting or hardening your muscles during the massage is counterproductive. Let me know this is happening. I may need to adjust the massage technique I use and may also be able to help you relax the affected area. If you find your thoughts are racing during the massage, one way to be more body-centered and to quiet your mind is to follow the hands of mine and focus on how the touch feels.

n) Donít get up too quickly and do allow for some open, quiet time after your massage session. If youíre dizzy or light headed after the massage, do not get off the table too fast. It also may take a little time to integrate or absorb the results of the massage session.

o) Be prepared to schedule several massage sessions. Massage has its greatest benefits over time. The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative, so the more often you get a massage, the better you will feel and the more quickly your body will respond. From one session to the next, relaxation deepens as the chronic patterns of stress in the body are affected and released. If youíre getting massage to address chronic muscular tension or recovery from a soft tissue injury, more than one session is usually needed.

George, South East London

- My work relates to a lot of driving, and sitting in the car most of the day causes a lot of pain. His unique treatments are invaluable to me. Not even I managed to get rid of back pain, but due to his unique experience I am able to stay in great physical shape, and maintain very active life style at the age of 50.

- He is professional and honest, and I have no reservation in recommending him to anyone.

a) Be as receptive and open to the massage process as possible.

b) Donít eat just before a massage session. Let your body digest your meal first.

c) Take off only as much clothing as you are comfortable removing. If you donít want to remove your clothing, wear clothing that will be comfortable during the massage and will allow to touch and move the areas of your body you expect will need to be massaged.

d) Privacy - I will either leave the room or otherwise provide privacy while you undress. A sheet or towel is provided for draping during the massage and I will uncover only the part of your body being massaged, ensuring that modesty is respected at all times. After the massage is finished, I will be provided with privacy while dressing.

e) Communicate with your expectations.

f) Before the session, give accurate health information and let I know your expectations and reasons for the massage.

g) Allergies to Oils, Lotions, Powders Ė I use organic ant-alergic oils.
