Your First Professional Massage

Ah, your first professional massage! It's like your first roller coaster ride, but instead of

screaming your lungs out, you get to "ahh" your stress and tension away. If you’re gearing up for your first ever massage session and not knowing what to expect or have visions of accidentally turning up in a ball gown or sporting swim trunks, fear not! This guide is to let you know what to expect during a massage and to ensure your debut massage experience at www.massageinatx.com is as smooth as the premium massage oils we use.


Before You Go: The Wardrobe Pre-game

First things first, what to wear to the massage. This is not the time to break out your new, complicated outfit or anything that requires an instruction manual to remove. Think comfort and ease – like yoga pants and a tee, a simple sundress or your favorite muumuu. Yes, that level of comfort. There's not even a need for makeup or any jewelry. You’re going for relaxation, not a fashion show!

Arrival: Setting the Scene

When you arrive for your massage in Round Rock, expect a warm welcome—no, we won’t roll out the red carpet (this time) but we will greet you with big smiles and offer some water and check to see if you need a restroom break before starting. We’ll start with a brief consultation. Here’s where you tell us about those achy spots that's been living rent free in your body and what you hope to get from the massage.


Communication is key – so don't hesitate to discuss what you hope to achieve from the massage therapy session. We'll talk about what you can say if you need more pressure applied and have a safety word for when you need less pressure. (Hint – The safety word is "LESS!!)"

The Main Event: What to Wear on the Massage Table

Now, the burning question: What do you wear during the massage? If the thought of undressing makes you feel like you’re about to perform a magic act—“Now you see clothes, now you don’t!”—take a deep breath. The truth is, it’s all about what makes you comfortable. Most folks opt to undress to their level of comfort; some go full commando under the sheets, while others prefer to keep more on (like underwear). Either way, you’ll be draped with both a sheet and a blanket throughout the session, covered everywhere except where we’re working.


Think of it as a professional game of peekaboo with muscles.


During the Massage: The Relaxation Symphony

As for the massage itself, imagine it as a symphony where your muscles are the orchestra, and we’re the conductor (just without the fancy tuxedo and baton). We’ll adapt our techniques and pressure to your comfort level, ensuring each area of tension you mentioned is addressed— yes, even that stubborn knot that’s been freelancing as a rock. Feel free to give feedback during the session – anything goes, words, grunts, huffs, puffs, moans, groans or giggles . After all, it’s your body’s personal concert!


Post-Massage: Gliding Out

Once your massage is complete, you might feel like a noodle —relaxed and maybe a bit too wobbly. Take your time getting up. There’s no rush, and let’s be honest, it’s not every day you get to legitimately laze around wrapped in a cocoon of blankets.


Don’t be surprised if you’re a bit thirsty or even sleepy. It’s normal. Just drink water and enjoy the afterglow—this is your body thanking you for treating it like royalty.


Booking Your Next Round Rock Massage Appointment: Repeat the Bliss

Before you float out the door, consider booking your next appointment. Regular massages are like those binge worthy TV series you love—they keep getting better, and you’ll always want to know what’s next.


So there you have it! Your lighthearted (yet accurate) guide to getting your first ever

professional massage. Remember, at www.massageinatx.com, we’re here to make your

experience easy and efficient but also therapeutic, smooth and relaxing so if you find that you have other concerns or questions you'd like to know more about, please don't hesitate to contact us (call, text or email).

As your partner relaxes on the massage table, the therapist will demonstrate proper massage techniques and ideal pressure application on the chosen muscle groups.


Then comes the exciting part - it's your turn! With the therapist's guidance, you'll take the reins and practice the techniques on your partner. But you're not alone; your partner's valuable feedback and the therapist's comparison ensure you're on the right track. This comparison, also known as the "Touch Comparo," helps refine your skills until you've mastered the art of relaxation through touch.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized massage technique that is used to help reduce swelling and improve the overall health of the lymphatic system. It is a gentle massage that is typically (and should be) performed by a trained and certified therapist who has the qualifications and expertise to properly and effectively perform the technique.


When looking for a therapist to perform lymphatic drainage, it is important to consider the qualifications of the therapist. A qualified therapist should have a specific certification in manual lymphatic drainage, such as the Dr. Vodder technique, which is known in the industry as the gold standard for its ability to greatly enhance recovery and

facilitate drainage.


Additionally, a qualified therapist should be licensed as a massage therapist. Massage therapy is a regulated profession and a licensed therapist has met the qualifications to practice in the state.


In addition to having the appropriate certification and licensure, it is also important to choose a therapist who has experience and training in performing manual lymphatic drainage. A therapist who has been trained in the technique will have a deep understanding of how the lymphatic system works and will be able to properly administer the massage to achieve the best results.


A therapist who has experience in treating post-operative patients is also a good choice, as they will be familiar with the specific needs of post-operative patients and will be able to tailor the massage accordingly. Whether it'd be post Liposuction, Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Breast Augmentation/Lift/Reduction, Fat Transfer (BBL or Brazilian Butt Lift) or many other procedures.


When it comes to finding a qualified therapist for lymphatic drainage, one of the most important factors to consider is their level of experience and expertise. While it may be tempting to go for the cheapest or most convenient option, choosing a therapist with plenty of positive reviews and testimonials from previous clients can give you peace of mind that you're in good hands.


One way to find a therapist with a good reputation is to look for reviews online, particularly on Google. This will give you a sense of the therapist's level of skill, touch style and the kind of results that their clients have experienced. Look for

therapists with a high number of positive reviews and a good overall rating, as this can be a strong indication of their qualifications and effectiveness.


In conclusion, when choosing a therapist for manual lymphatic drainage, it is important to consider the qualifications of the therapist, including their certification, licensure, experience, and training. It is also important to choose a therapist that you feel comfortable with, and one who has experience treating post-operative patients.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can ensure that you are receiving the best possible care from a qualified and experienced therapist.
