This article is part of a five-part series, What to expect at your first massage.
Massage pressure is specifically tailored to your body.
I never massage so deeply that you feel the need to hold your breath or tense your body.
At several times throughout the massage, I will ask you for feedback about the pressure.
The most important thing is to please be honest!
Too much or too little pressure can sap your enjoyment of a massage and undermine its efficacy.
Remember, your massage session is YOUR special time.
