Long Live LifeHow to Receive a MassageLong Live Life

It is suggested to take a shower before a massage to help enable relaxation. Showers are available before and after a massage at The Body Bank.

Clothes: wear what makes you feel comfortable

The recipients only task is to relax and release control as much as possible. For those who find this difficult, here are some helpful tips:

  • Breath deeply and regularly


  • exhaling is crucial


  • allow the body to become tranquil, almost sinking into the table


  • as the therapist detects areas of tension, consciously try to relax and let go of these areas


  • close your eyes


  • become in sink with your sense of touch


  • feel your body both inside and out
  • When receiving a massage, allow the therapist to move your limbs in whatever position necessary. Be a rag doll. Don't try to be helpful: simply receive. The therapist is a trained professional who knows what he or she is doing. Follow hints or suggestions with confidence.

    If emotions surface, do not be afraid to give them expression. Sometimes during massage emotions will come up, and it is a great benefit if these can be let go of or worked through. At the very least, don't be afraid to sigh with relief or hum with pleasure.

    Give feedback if any manipulation feels particularly relaxing or uncomfortable. If you would like more attention or more time spent on a certain area, then you must communicate with the therapist.

    Don't feel obligated to talk. Conversation can be a distraction for the most part as well as unnecessary. Good massage requires concentration. Enjoy! A massage is good for everyone.
