During your massage therapy appointment, the massage therapist will talk with you about your specific needs and worries. Then, you’ll be asked to take off as much clothing as you feel comfortable (fully clothed if that’s what you’re most comfortable with is just fine) with and lie down on a massage table, covered by a sheet or towel. The massage therapist will use different techniques to move the muscles and soft tissue to help relieve pain and tension. The massage will last as long as you’ve asked for, and you may be asked to change positions during the session. After the massage, the therapist will talk to you about any tips or instructions for aftercare.
