How to Have the Best Massage Ever

In my studio, I want you to have the best massage ever. Here are just a few ideas on things that you can communicate to your RMT that can greatly improve your treatment.

  1. If you’re too warm or too cold. There are plenty of things that can be used to help regulate your temperature. Table warmer, blankets, thermophore, fans. Maybe you need to stick your feet out from under the sheets? Let me know how you're feeling.

  2. The music needs adjusting. Please tell me if you have any musical preferences, or if you need the volume adjusted, or if you don’t want any music at all. I usually make a note of your preference so that I've got the perfect setup upon your arrival.

  3. The pressure needs adjusting. We often need different pressures throughout our bodies and we aren’t a “one size fits all” when it comes to pressure. I always check in about the pressure, but do speak up about this at any point during your massage treatment.

  4. You’re not comfortable. Please tell me if you need to change position, or require an extra pillow.

  5. You need to use the restroom. Make sure you go before your treatment, but sometimes the urge strikes when you're on the table. Not to worry! Nothing worse than thinking about that when there’s still 30 minutes left of your massage.

  6. You don’t want to talk. A silent treatment can be very calming and relaxing. I’m usually good at reading cues and not initiating conversation, but feel free to tell me directly that you’d rather just be quiet.

You won’t hurt my feelings by speaking up about simple things that could very easily improve your massage treatment in the moment. Nothing makes me happier than when a client tells me at the end of their session, "That was the best massage ever!"
