8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know
Here's what your massage therapist is really thinking when you're naked on the table
This should be a no-brainer: don't multi-task during a massage. That means no calls, no email, no texting. Just relax -- enjoy your time on the table. Our source stresses that this is often the only time you'll have to completely unplug and remove yourself from everyday life. Instead of fighting it, embrace it. Life as you know it won't turn to complete chaos after 50 minutes away from your iPhone.
Our source offers a few more tips to get the most out of your massage:
• To maximize the benefits of the massage, drink plenty of water before and after your appointment.
• Plan to get to the spa early so you have time to take a hot shower and relax before the massage.
• During the massage pay attention to your breathing, making sure it is deep and relaxed. Also communicate any pressure or comfort needs you may have with your massage therapist.
• Minimize your to-do list before and after the massage, and [ideally] take the day off.
