How the early bird gets a better massage

When you come in for your 2pm massage, what time do you arrive? I have some clients who arrive on the dot, or late. While punctuality is good, when you are getting a massage it’s actually better for your health to get there a few minutes early.

If you get to your appointment on time, or worse, late to your massage appointment, chances are you will be feeling flustered or rushed and most probably, distracted.

A good massage is not just in the hands of your massage therapist. You are just as important in making sure you get the health benefits of the session.

When you arrive, it’s important that you are a few minutes early. This way you can take the time to unwind from the stressful drive. The more tense you are, the longer it takes for you to unwind and relax. And the longer it takes for me to massage those tense muscles.

Being present is also a large part of how effective your massage session will be. When you are a few minutes early, it also gives us more time to talk so I can find out how you are feeling and what to focus on. Have you had headaches? Are you sleeping poorly? Is your stomach acting up? These are all important cues your body is giving you about your health.

And once I know exactly how you are feeling, and we are both focused on your health, then we are in the moment together. And that makes a good massage even better. So before your massage, make sure to plan extra time and your body will thank you!
