At Unique Threading Salon, we offer many different services. One of our most popular is ayurvedic massage. Our clients often report leaving their massages feeling well-rested and relaxed, and we are happy to help make your day better. If you are getting a massage for the first time, you may have a lot of questions. We have compiled a list of the questions we most commonly hear from our new customers below.

What should I wear to a massage?

You can wear whatever you like to a massage as you will have the opportunity to privately undress beforehand. If you are getting a full-body massage, you may want to fully undress, but you can keep your underwear on if you prefer. If you don’t feel comfortable about getting undressed, your massage therapist will work around the clothes as best they can.

What should I do during my massage?

When you are getting massaged, all you need to do is relax. Get comfortable, and if you need to switch positions, your massage therapist will let you know. You can close your eyes and remain silent if you like, or you can talk to your massage therapist. Do whatever feels right to you, and feel free to ask questions.

Why should I get a massage?

Massage therapy offers a wide variety of benefits, both physically and mentally. Massage helps to relax the muscles, which reduces headaches and body pain, eases stress, and makes it easier to sleep. Massages are a great way to unwind and relax, but they can also help you address a wide variety of issues, from high blood pressure to chronic pain to injury.

Will I be sore after a massage?

Some people experience muscle soreness post-massage. This is because massage triggers the release of lactic acid from our muscles, which creates a feeling of soreness. However, this feeling is temporary, and people often experience better range of motion and higher energy levels.

How often should I get a massage?

This varies from person to person and will depend on your individual needs. In general, most people benefit from monthly massages. However, if your budget allows for more frequent visits or you have a chronic pain condition, it may be in your best interest to invest in weekly massages. You can speak with your massage therapist about what frequency would work best for you.

When should I not get a massage?

Most of the time, massage is perfectly healthy and safe. However, you should not come in for a massage if you have a contagious disease.

Will the massage hurt?

There is a difference between discomfort and pain. When your massage therapist is working into your muscles, it might feel uncomfortable at points, but it should never feel bad to get a massage. If you are feeling pain, let your massage therapist know so that they can adjust their technique to match your needs.
