Schedule A Massage
How long of a massage should I schedule?
The first thing to consider when you schedule a massage is whether you want a full body massage or only part of the body. Next, you’ll need to consider what you want to accomplish. For most people, their purpose falls into one of two broad categories: specific pain relief or general relaxation.
If you’re looking for specific pain relief and only part of the body, then a 60 minute session is perfect for you.
I would also suggest 60 minutes if you’re just looking for general relaxation with no specific work.
I always suggest a 90 minute sessions for my clients.
This allows for general relaxation but also some specific work in one or two areas.
120 minutes should be reserved for those looking for a complete head-to-toe maintenance,
combining specific work to several areas as well as time to relax.
Getting a massage sounds like it ought to be straightforward and simple.
But if you’ve never booked a massage before, you may wonder where to start. Here are answers to some questions you may have about massage therapy. Moreover, the tips will make your experience enjoyable and comfortable. If you have arthritis or a related disease, massage therapy may help you relieve pain and stiffness. However, people with arthritis experiencing flares should use caution when trying massage. In addition, people with skin rashes, fever or active inflammation may not wish to get a massage until those conditions clear up. To be certain if massage is safe for you, consult with your doctor before booking a massage appointment.
Massages range in time duration from mini-massages that may last 5-10 minutes, to full massages that last 30, 60 or 90 minutes.
It depends on how much time you have to spend and your budget. Typically, the longer the massage, the more expensive it is. Some spas package massages with other services like facials or water therapies, so examine all the options before making a choice.
