Things Your Body Tells a Massage Therapist After An Hour Massage

Your body can say a lot about you and your lifestyle even if you don’t realize it. This month some of our Massage Therapists, share what they know about you from spending an hour with you.


A therapist can tell whether you stretch or exercise and what type of activities you participate in based on the length of your muscles or tensions you may have in certain areas.

Whether you drink enough water. Dry skin and underlying tissue are indicators of lack of hydration. Your therapist will also always recommend an increase in water intake after a treatment because massaging allows toxins in the body to be release and it is important to keep hydrated to flush these out and replenish your body.

If a guest has been consuming alcohol prior to treatment. Going along with the point previous, alcohol dehydrates the body and especially the skin so it is easy to tell by your appearance whether or not you’ve had a few drinks the night before a treatment.

A guest with an agitated mood typically indicates stress.  Stress creates tension in body and over time may cause “holding patterns” that are evident when performing a massage. It is easy to tell whether a guest is relaxed or not as soon as they lay down on the table.

If a person is complaining about chronic shoulder pain, they may be sleeping on that shoulder or carrying their belongings or children on that side of their body. A trained eye can easily see imbalances in the body upon first look.
