Should I Shower Before My Massage Session?
Yes. Showering between 30 minutes and 2 hours prior to your massage is best.
Some clients who get in-home massages may shower immediately before the massage session, but this can affect the tactile nature of creams and oils. A little time for the skin to dry and the body’s energy to return to normal is optimal UNLESS a hot shower is being used for hydrotherapy and the therapist wants the tissues warmed right before the massage.
