The Benefits of Showering Before Your Massage Session

Showering before a massage is a personal choice but highly recommended. Taking a shower before a massage can help in several ways:


Showering before a massage helps ensure that both the client and the massage therapist start the session with clean bodies.


A shower can help the client feel refreshed and relaxed before the massage and enhance the overall massage experience.

Improved circulation

Warm water from a shower can help improve circulation, making the massage more effective.

It’s important to note that if the client has any skin conditions, such as eczema or sunburn, they should inform the massage therapist before the session. In some cases, the therapist may suggest the client skip the shower to avoid further irritation.

Generally, clients should arrive at the massage appointment clean and freshly groomed.
