How should I prepare for my massage?
We recommend that you come dressed comfortably and take no aspirin, pain killers, or alcohol or marijuana on the day of the appointment. To receive bodywork, you can dress down to your comfort level; however, the more clothing you have on, the less soft tissue we will be able to affect.
We suggest you arrive 10 minutes early for your first appointment to fill out a necessary intake form and to get acquainted with your therapist. And please arrive 5 minutes early for subsequent appointments.
What can I expect during my session at Puyallup Massage & Bodywork?
What can I expect after a massage?
You may feel like you’re floating or a little lightheaded. In the world of massage, this is normal and known as “massage head.” Some refer to it as feeling “spongy” or “fluffy.” Give yourself a few minutes to recover. Have a seat in the waiting area, drink some water and enjoy the moment.
After your massage you may experience a little soreness, so be sure you drink plenty of water for the next day or two.
Taking a bath in Epsom Salt can help to alleviate some of the soreness.
