Recommended by Hippocrates as early as 400 BC, massage has long been recognized as an important adjunct to healing. Massage delivers some of the benefits of exercise: it tones muscles, increases circulation, eases tension, and releases endorphins.
Arrive early if you can, and indulge in a sauna or whirlpool, as this will loosen muscles as well as put you in relaxed frame of mind. Take a warm shower just before your massage, if possible, and change into a robe. Your therapist will come to meet you at the appointed time. You will take off your robe in private and lie down beneath a sheet, and you will be nude during your treatment, but modesty will be preserved with a sheet. During your massage, please communicate if something feels especially good, or causes you discomfort.
