If you’re one of the last ones to hop on the massage bandwagon, you may be wondering what all the hype is about.  You may have heard your friends wax enthusiastically about how they feel like butter after an hour of gentle kneading, or how their minds feel clearer and they feel more empowered to tackle their days.  But is a massage right for you?  

You may also be wondering how the whole process works.  And that’s nothing to be ashamed of, because going to a medical day spa for the first time can be a daunting prospect if you don’t know what to expect.  Wouldn’t it be nice if someone explained how to maximize your massage? 

Thanks to their years of training and personalized attention, the skilled aestheticians at Ecobeautica Wellness Center in Brooklyn, New York offer the following insights on what to look for in a massage facility – and how to get the most from this relaxing, rejuvenating experience.

The Right Ambiance
Like a good play, it’s critical to set the right stage.  From the moment you walk through the front door, the ambiance should be calming and contemplative.  You’ll don a luxurious robe and sandals, sip on a cool drink, and relax in a tranquil area of soft candlelight, soothing music, beautiful flowers and the gentle falling water of the fountain.  Even before you enter your treatment room, you’re well on your way to a meditative, Zen-like state of mind.

The Right Mindset
As Woody Allen once said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up.”  You’ve gotten to your massage facility; now let’s get you the rest of the way.  To truly experience a massage to its fullest extent, you need to give your mind permission to empty.  Let go of troubling thoughts, set aside your to-do list for the rest of the day, and allow yourself one hour to just think of – nothing.  Listen to the soft music, inhale the scent of the aromatherapy oils being used on your body, and give yourself up to the masterful manipulation of your technician.  The more you let go, the more you’ll get out of your massage.

The Right Reasons
The reasons for choosing a massage may be as varied as the individuals themselves.  Fitness-minded folks might be looking for a way to relax tired muscles from a particularly tough workout. Those who work at a computer for most of their days may need focused attention on their necks, shoulders, upper backs – and yes, even wrists.  And with how busy all of us are these days, tethered to our electronic devices and juggling a myriad of personal and professional responsibilities, pretty much anyone could use a massage just to unwind and recharge their batteries.

The Right Philosophy
While many facilities may offer massages, few take the time to delve into the unique root causes of each person’s ailments before recommending the most appropriate treatment. Ecobeautica holistic approach focuses on each client as a whole, evaluating their lifestyles and other underlying factors to determine what type and intensity of massage is most appropriate.
