The Importance of Finding the Right Masseur
With many benefits, from alleviating back pain to enhancing immunity, it appears that we could all be boosting our health by taking more massages. The upsides of massage can also be felt psychologically, as touch is such an imperative factor in human well-being.
To reap maximum benefits from massage, it is important to find a skilled masseur and then stick with them for regular sessions, as opposed to trying out a new clinic or masseur every time. Trust is vitally important when it comes to the masseur/client relationship. Attending your first session with a new masseur can be a difficult experience to some clients, especially to those who have never had a massage before.
After all, lying unclothed on a massage table can make anyone feel a little vulnerable! Although, a true professional will make you feel perfectly at-ease. Once you have unclothed and lay on the massage table, I cover your body with a towel, and then only work on the part of the body that is exposed at any given moment. Some clients are comfortable being in the nude and prefer not to be covered with the towel. This is fine by me too. I always tell my clients to interact with me and be direct if there’s anything they need to say or ask or need me to change. The client’s comfort is the most important thing.
