What You Should Never Do Before Your Massage

One of the best parts about getting a massage is that you don’t have to do anything other than lay back and relax. In preparation for your zenned out bliss, there are some things you’ll definitely want to avoid to make sure you reap all the benefits of massage therapy (think stress reduction, lymphatic detox, reduced inflammation, improved breathing…) We asked our team of expert massage therapists at Massage Sense for their tips and here they are.


Water, yes, but alcohol is a real no-no. Be warned, “when you get a massage your body moves toxins in your body, therefore any ill effects the alcohol has caused may be amplified.”. Your best bet is to be hydrated, not tipsy prior to your massage.


This is tough to avoid on vacation, but our experts recommend spending the day-of your massage out of direct sunlight to help prevent sunburn. Sunburn can be very sensitive to touch. The last thing you want to do is have somebody rubbing your sunburnt skin.

Feel ill

While you can’t control when your immune system fails you, it’s best to cancel your massage if you’re feeling under the weather. If you are sick or have an infection, massage may actually spread the infection to other parts of your body. It is best for everybody if you cancel allowing at least 24 hours notice and reschedule for a few days later when you are healthier.

Dear Esteemed Clients,
We wanted to inform you that we will be updating our prices gradually starting February 19th to ensure our services remain in line with current economic conditions. This process will be completed before March 1st.
Here’s a summary of the upcoming changes:
* Appointment Prices: Appointments booked before the price update, whether fixed or flexible, will be honored at the price quoted upon booking. If our system updates prices before your appointment, your therapist will ensure the correct pricing is applied based on your booking record.
* Loyalty Packages: While the prices of our loyalty packages will be updated, your existing package will remain unaffected. You can continue enjoying the benefits of your package until your credits expire or are fully utilized.
* Gift Cards: The prices of our gift cards will also be adjusted. If you have purchased or received a gift card before the price update, there may be an additional amount to pay to match our new prices. However, rest assured that gift card amounts will always be used as credit towards any session.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we strive to maintain the quality you expect from Massage Sense.
