To benefit optimally from massage therapy it is necessary to set the best environment for massage. One need to use soft lighting and music to produce soothing result during the therapy. Warm the room where you plan to massage and pick a time when there are least opportunities of a disturbance. Get your client or partner wear loose clothes, ensure that his/ her body is bare (without any precious jewelry or other devices) and eyes shut, and tie the hair if it is long. Massage with clean hands and nails cut short; do not massage with wrist watch, bracelet, or fingerings on your hand. Continue to massage in upward movement for one to one-and-a quarter hour.
At its finest, massage has the potential to restore an individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
