Are you struggling with getting the right schedule for your massage? Well, a lot of people are in the same dilemma. You do not know whether you’ll have your massage in the morning hours, afternoon or in the evening.
The truth is, there is no right or wrong time to have a massage. You can choose to have your massage at a time that is most convenient for you based on your availability and that of the massage therapist. However, several factors can determine what time is good for you to have a massage:
If yours is an active lifestyle, you should schedule your massage on your resting days. For instance, if you are a sports personality, getting a good massage when you are not performing is the best option. The only time you can have a massage on your active days is when your trainer schedules a sports massage.
If you are moderately active or you are a sedentary person, the massage therapist will help you to choose the best schedule for your massage. The massage therapist will also advise you on the adjustments you need to make that will make the massage more beneficial.
To get maximum benefits from your massage, schedule your massage when you are less busy. For instance, you can go for your massage in the morning before reporting to work, during your lunch break or in the evening, whichever works for you. Alternatively, you can wait for the weekend so that you can enjoy your pampering without any rush or inconveniences.
To avoid long waits at the spa, you can schedule your appointment at 4 pm when you’ll have had enough time to digest the food you had taken for lunch. You will have enough time to get massaged and go back home to take dinner with your family.
Another benefit of going for a massage at 4 pm is that most people are still at the office and you won’t have to struggle with crazy traffic or long lines at the spa. If you can, do not wait until everyone is on the road struggling to fulfill the obligations of the day before going home.
Most people will schedule their massage from 6 pm and if you can get a chance before this time, you will have an easier time. Most therapists are not busy at 4 pm which makes it an appropriate time for you.
Having said this, everyone is different and what will work for others may not work for you. If you have a different timing that works for you, go for it! What is important is getting the most from your massage. if you are not sure what works best for you, you can schedule your appointments at different times of the day. From these appointments, settle for the time that works best for you.
The massage therapist can also help you in choosing an appropriate time for your massage if you ask him. A time when he is less busy and will be able to give you undivided attention is the best.
