Maximize Your Massage

Busy moms have tight schedules, tight budgets—and tight necks.


Published:

Busy moms have tight schedules, tight budgets—and tight necks. If you’ve the money and the time for a massage, make the most of it:

  • Don’t eat a heavy meal beforehand.
  • Drink plenty of water before (and after) to hydrate.
  • Arrive early so you can relax and take a shower or use the sauna.
  • Talk with your therapist about tender areas, lotion  allergies, anxiety, etc.
  • Provide feedback about pain, pressure, and room temperature.
  • Remember to breathe, especially when the therapist finds a tender spot.
  • Keep your mind focused on the massage, not day-to-day worries.
  • Build in extra time at the end so you can slowly transition back to reality.
