Massage....How to Receive

Because massage is not a common part of our contemporary cultural experience, many people do not get the most out of a massage because they lack the understanding of a few simple techniques...

The recipient's only job is to relax as completely as possible, allowing the body to become heavy and sink into the table

Breathe deeply as the therapists' hands locate areas of tension, consiously trying to let go and relax those areas

Talk, for the most part, is unnecassary. A great massage is the result of meditation between therapist and recipient

Feel free to give feedback if you would like something done differently or longer

The massage is for you, just lie there ~ be a rag doll ~ Do not try to be helpful

Simply receive, allow the therapist to move your limbs, she is trained professionally and knows what to do & will not hurt you

Close your eyes, see with your sense of touch

Feel your body both inside & out

Closing your eyes during the massage experience tends to bring your center of energy out of your head and into your body

Enjoy!
