Here we have mentioned everything that you need to know before going for your first massage appointment. Keep this info in mind as it will help you enjoy your spa day in Malta better…
5 Massage etiquettes to keep in mind
- Be open and honest
Usually, when you book a massage appointment, you will be given a form to fill in your personal details. Mostly, questions concerning your medical health or body pain will be asked. Some of the questions might sound too personal and even irrelevant, but remember that they are there for a reason. So, be honest and fill up the details without hesitation.
- Clean up well
It is important that you take a shower before your massage treatment. You are not doing this for the therapist, but for yourself, as it will prevent all sorts of embarrassing and uncomfortable moments.
- Don’t ask for any ‘unethical’ services
Generally, in movies, they show that massages end with ‘happy endings’. Well, this is not true in real life. Asking for sexual favors is illegal as well as rude, and your therapist can end the session without providing you any refund.
- Stop stressing
You don’t have to be completely naked during the session, however, if you want to, don’t take any stress about how you look. Massage therapists attend countless clients throughout their life, and thus they have seen everything there is. They have come across thick body hair, scars, ugly moles, rolls of fat, etc. and thus you don’t have to worry at all.
- Make sure you tip
Tipping is not mandatory, but it is surely appreciated. The thing is, the cost of your massage does not go to the therapist. Even if the spa is adding service charges to the cost, a very low percentage of that money goes to the therapist. If you want to truly show your gratitude towards the therapist, a 15 to 20% tip is ideal.
There you go. lastly, keep in mind that if you are planning to go around lunchtime, ensure you don’t over eat. This will prevent bloating and any other discomfort during the massage. Then again, Maltese massage therapists have seen and experienced it all, and if you will need to take a bathroom break, they will surely understand.
