Massage session Where they cover (almost) Everything
A full body to body massage indicates that the therapist will massage your body during a therapeutic massage lasting at least 50 minutes. This is the amount of time it takes to massage all the major areas of your body - back, shoulders, legs, feet, arms, arms and neck. Men get a good breast massage, but women have to go to Europe for that.
Typically, you start face down and the therapist starts with your back and shoulders, then moves down your body.
Once you flip, the therapist works his way back to your body, usually ending up your neck and shoulders and sometimes your scalp.
Whether you get a Swedish massage, a deep tissue massage, a hot stone massage or a lomi-lomi, most massages at the spa will be a full body massage. If you have an area problem that needs extra attention, such as back pain or stiff shoulders, you can ask your therapist to spend more time on these problem areas. They can accommodate this request to spend less time on areas such as legs or arms that could only get quick scans.
If you have problem areas but don’t want other areas to be fooled, make an appointment for a longer massage session, such as 75 or even 90 minutes. This way, you can get a complete body massage along with more focused work that is needed in specific areas.
If you do not get a full body to body massage
If you book an express or mini treatment (and the session is only 30 minutes instead of the usual 50 or 60 minutes), it is best to have a massage therapist focus on a few areas instead of getting a full body massage.
This is because it takes a while to warm up and soften the muscle tissue so that the therapist can go a little deeper and get the muscles to actually relax.
Most of us have chronic tension in our backs, necks and shoulders, so this is a good place to start. If you ask for a full body massage in half an hour, you won’t see how much benefit the massage has.
