How to prepare your Motif massage

Getting a massage at Motif Spa is a relaxing and wonderful experience. A good massage can not only help reduce stress level, but also help you detox. Knowing how to prepare for  a massage at Motif Spa will make your massage experience easy and smooth. 

Before Massage

Motif Spa welcomes both walk-ins and reservations. However, as Motif becomes more people's favorite, getting a massage at certain time could be challenging. You can simply give us a call and make your reservation. We will be very glad to save the spot for you.

Having a general idea of your massage goals will be helpful. Those goals could be getting the knots out of your back, general musical relaxing, relief back pain or as simple as wanting to find some quiet place to reflect. Having a general thought will help us customize your massage when you come in the spa.

Always remember to wear loose clothing. Soft shorts are recommended for both men and women. Wearing shorts can make stretching your legs easier and you will feel relieved when our masseuses stretch your legs to your limit. For men, we will ask if you want to remove your shirt during the massage. If so, wear something that can easily be removed such as a T-shirt or tank-top. For ladies, we will ask you if our masseuses can lift up your shirt and unhook your bra to do your back with lotion. If you would like to use lotion, we will recommend that you wear a sports bra.

Be on time. Arriving 5 to 10 minutes before your appointment can help you settle down. Study shows that you will have a hard time to relax if you arrive in a stressful rush.

The last and most important thing is to prepare your mood. Try to avoid any negative thoughts, leave your emotions behind, and carry your positive and peaceful mind.

 During the massage

Before our masseuses take you in, our welcoming receptionist will assist you with filling out a body chart where you can chose you massage pressure, if you want to move your shirt, and spots you want to focus and avoid.

Depending on the kind of massage you choose, our masseuses will follow their routine as well as your customized body chart to do your massage. Take a deep breath and relax yourself as much as possible. Our masseuses will use a big towel to cover your body, as well as use a small towel to cover your eyes. While listening to meditation music, it’s time to go into sleep mood and enjoy your massage.

Motif Spa provides several types of massage services. The most popular one is the 30 minute foot massage, plus 30 minute body massage for 30 dollars. This affordable massage will provide you with even distribution on both your feet and body. If your work requires you to stand or walk all the time such as nurse, cashier, banker, we recommend this massage. If you are pregnant, you definitely want to get your feet massaged to reduce the pressure on your ankle.  

Along with this foot and body combo, 60 minutes full body deep tissue massage is also our customer’s favorite.  This massage spends the entire 60 minutes on your neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, arms, and legs. If you have lower back pain, sore spots, tight shoulders, or you did not have a deep tissue massage for a long time, 60 minutes full body deep tissue is definitely your choice.

 After Massage

After getting your massage done, do not move and rush to get up. Getting up too fast may lead to dizziness. Taking your time and moving slowly will extend your enjoyable time.

At Motif Spa, we always ask our customers if they want a cup of water or hot tea after massage. Our massage oil has a “detox” effect, however, this can dehydrate you. Drinking a cup of water or tea is always a good idea to help you keep hydrated.

If you feel some soreness right after the massage or next day, do not be panic, it is perfectly normal. The soreness is caused by lactic acid resolving and flooding into your system. The cure for this is to drink a lot of water to flush it out of you body.

Last, if you are satisfied with our service, please leave some tips for our masseuses since tips are a big part of their income. Also, don't forget to give us a nice review on social media, such as Yelp and facebook, to help more people discover our spa.
