Like many massages, Asian massage in NYC can really help relax and soothe your body. Massages have also many health benefits, like better blood circulation, immunity, plus pain relief. But a massage that is awkward, causes pain is a waste of time and money. Here are 4 things that your massage therapist wants you to know.
It’s fine to get naked – Most people find it uncomfortable to get naked in front of a stranger. But most therapist are very comfortable with seeing their client nude and this actually helps them to provide a better massage. Most professionals will keep you covered with sheets where appropriate.
Remember to breathe – If your therapist is working a bad knot, you may find yourself tensing up and holding your breath. Doing this will make you miss out on one of the benefits of a massage. If you continue breathing, it will help oxygenate your blood supply and aid to relieve tense muscles.
Drink a ton of water after your appointment – It’s important to drink sufficient water after a massage, which is similar to a workout and can make your body dehydrated. The excess water will help you remove metabolic wastes that has accumulated as your muscles are worked out. This is why many Asian massages in Manhattan offer tea and refreshments for no extra charge, after their massages.
A warm shower before is a great idea – Enjoying a long warm bath pre-session will get your body relaxed for your massage. It is also a good way to feel clean, if you have any body insecurities.
