How To Get The BEST Massage You’ve Ever Had

October 14, 2015

At Coastal Massage, we see a variety of clientele, each with their own goals, needs and comfort levels. We are here to provide you with the best massage experience by tailoring each season for your specific needs. To help us provide you with outstanding care, here are a few tips to help you get the massage you want and deserve.

Communicate your goals to us.

What do you hope to achieve through massage therapy? Knowing your goals helps us pair you up with the massage therapist that will fit your needs.

Be specific about your needs.

Tell us about your comfort level and your preferences such as amount of pressure you like applied during the session, whether you like loud or quiet music or if you need the temperature adjusted.

Communicate during the session.

Inform us of any discomfort or painful areas so that the therapist can avoid these areas or focus on these areas during the session.

Drink plenty of water.

Making sure to drink water afterward will increase the benefits of massage such as flushing out toxins from your body.

Be on time.

It’s important to be on time and a few minutes early for your appointment so you are not rushed when filling out paperwork or sharing your goals and expectations with your massage therapists. You also want to make sure you are able to get your full amount of time and that others coming in after you are able to begin on time.

Feel free to chat or lie in silent serenity.

It’s your session. Some clients enjoy conversing with their massage therapist, while others prefer the quiet. Either way is perfectly okay.

Indulge in aromatherapy.

Aramotherapy is a great add on (complimentary at Coastal Massage & Bodywork) to the massage experience, however, please let us know if you have any aversions to specific essential oils or lotions.

Really relax.


During the massage, try to relax your muscles and your mind. The more you are able to release tension, the better the outcome of the massage.


Massage therapy is a wonderful and positive experience that can help alleviate pain, stress and promote overall health. By following these tips, our trained and licensed massage therapists will be able to create a customized massage just for you.
