Q.: What should I wear for my treatment?
A.: You can come with whatever attire you are comfortable with. However, for hygiene purposes and your comfort, we do not allow wet bathing suits on our massage tables. If you come directly from the beach and did not have enough time to change in dry attire, we provide with disposable underwear at no charge. Also please make sure that you don’t carry any sand of your feet or body before hopping on the table: as it may compromise your experience.
Q.: How do I get ready for my massage?
A.: Before massage we do not recommend to have heavy meal, caffeine, or excess of alcoholic beverages. For you to have the best experience, we suggest a light meal or snack, a glass of water and no more than one drink; we want you to feel comfortable, light and fully aware of your senses.
Q.: What should I do after my massage?
A.: As your blood pressure drops during massage and remains low couple of hours later, we recommend waiting 2-3 hours before engaging into any sports or training or any activity that needs particular awareness and concentration. Please note that if you consume any alcohol, you may feel that it hits your system faster than usual. We also recommend reducing the consumption of red meat, sugars and stimulants for couple of days after massage to make sure your body benefits fully from the treatment.
Q.: Under what circumstances would one not be able to receive a massage?
A.: Most of massages are suitable for any physical condition. However in case of a sun burn, we recommend waiting until full recovery of any burns. Dorsal acne, athlete’s foot, open and/or bleeding wounds, scratches or inflammation are a major contraindication for any type of massage. Psoriasis and light eczema do not represent any danger for massage.
