To benefit efficiently from massage therapy it is necessary to set the best environment for massage. One should utilize soft lighting and music to produce calming effect throughout the therapy. Warm the space where you intend to massage and choose a time when there are least possibilities of a disturbance. Get your client or partner wear loose clothing, make sure that his/ her body is bare (without any fashion 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 best, massage has the possible to bring back an individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
