What are some tips for me to enjoy my first professional massage?

My husband gave me a massage for Christmas.

Relax. It's very, very important that you relax. Trust your Masseur explicitly, and let them do the work on you. Your job is to relax and lay back. If anything is slightly uncomfortable, speak up and say so. If something feels particularly good, likewise. Also mention any relevant health issues.

First and foremost try to remain relaxed. Arrive early so as not to tense yourself up. Talk with the therapist about any health concerns that may prevent you from enjoying the massage. Communicate if the massage is creating any pain or discomfort.

Simply relax. Don't go into this with embarrassment or apprehension. Let your mind be at peace and focus on the soft background music. Let go!

Definitely go into the massage with a good mindset--it's a body and mind experience. If it's a full-body massage (i.e. naked), don't be ashamed of your it!

Call your spa and ask about the types of massages offered, their durations, and if the massage price includes any extras, such as a sauna. Choose a massage that sounds comfortable and wear appropriate comfy clothes, even if you will change into a robe or towel for the massge itself.
