Top Ten Things To Ask Your Massage Therapist

We keep all areas covered that are not being massaged except during Ka Huna massages where we drape with sarongs. With towel draping, the area being massaged will warm up, so we need to keep the other areas of the body toweled and warm. You will feel cocooned under your towel and this gives you a real sense of comfort.

What if my body makes noises?
It’s ok, it’s a compliment!! You may snore – that’s great you are so relaxed and enjoying your treatment. Tummy rumbles, passing wind it all happens because your body is now in the rest and digest mode. It’s all part of your massage treatment. Just relax and enjoy – it’s all part of our job.

How will I feel after my massage?
Having a remedial or deep tissue massage you may experience a little of bit of pain for up to 24 hours after your treatment. Second day you should feel great! Your therapist will advise you of this before you leave. They should recommend that you drink plenty of water, particularly in the first hour after your massage. They may also recommend heat, ice and or stretches as after care for your treatment. A relaxation massage should have you floating out the door – hydration is still recommended after any sort of massage.
