Massage therapists often use oil or lotion. If you’re allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand.

If you’re receiving hot stone massage, make sure you’re comfortable with the temperature of the stones.

Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body (except private areas) or only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.

Remember to breathe normally.

Table massage usually lasts beween 30 and 90 minutes.

After your massage, the massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy.

Depending on the environment, tips are appreciated to recognize outstanding service, but not required.
