To benefit optimally from massage therapy it is essential to set the ideal environment for massage. One must utilize soft lighting and music to create calming impact during the treatment. Warm the space where you mean to massage and select a time when there are least possibilities of a disruption. Get your client or partner wear loose clothes, ensure that his/ her body is bare (without any jewelry or other devices) and eyes shut, and tie the hair if it is long. Massage with clean hands and nails interrupted; do not massage with wrist watch, bracelet, or fingerings on your hand. Continue to massage in upward motion for one to one-and-a quarter hour.
At its finest, massage has the prospective to restore an individual physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
