Prior to your therapeutic massage appointment follow these steps to ensure a relaxing experience:

· Get plenty of fluids in the 24 hours leading up to your massage
· Shaving the same day of a massage can lead to razor burn or a rash; avoid shaving legs prior to a massage
· Shower the same day of the massage or as close to the appointment as possible – if you have been working out of doors or exercising the sweat and dirt can become mixed in with massage oils and creams and make for an exfoliating or gritty experience
· Plan to arrive a few minutes early to complete any paperwork and to avoid traffic or parking issues
· Disclose any health conditions and allergies to the massage therapist before your session
