Shower Before a Massage? Oh YES

Posted on March 2nd, 2013 by Shari´ Parks

Today one of my regular clients asked if a shower should be taken before a massage session? My response? Absolutely. A shower or bath is always highly recommended before a massage. A clean body is easier for the oil/lotion to glide on. It’s also more pleasant for the therapist because unpleasant body odor and/or dirt are very distracting and makes giving a wonderful massage more challenging. Clean feet are also part of this equation; this applies during the summer months when flip flops are worn.

So, yes…bathe prior to your session. You want to get your monies worth and showering is one step closer to that goal.
