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 develop calming impact during the treatment. Warm the room where you intend to massage and pick a time when there are least opportunities of a disturbance. Get your customer or partner wear loose clothes, ensure that his/ her body is bare (with no precious jewelry or other accessories) 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 motion for one to one-and-a quarter hour.
At its best, massage has the potential to bring back an individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
