What length of massage should I get?
A 90 minute massage is almost always recommended. It allows plenty of time for you to become completely relaxed if receiving a relaxation massage. Otherwise, it gives ample time to work out your ailments during a deep tissue/sports massage. If it is your first massage, you may want to do 60 minutes as an introduction to massage.
How much do I undress?
It is totally up to you on this one. Some people feel more comfortable completely nude, while others prefer to leave on their undergarments. Either way, private areas are always covered during a massage.
Is there special schooling/licensing to become a massage therapist?

Do people fall asleep during massage?
What if I toot?
It is common to pass gas during a massage. There is no need to be embarrassed. This means that you and your digestive system are relaxed.
What should I do before and after the massage?
Drinking water before and after the massage is very important. This allows your body to better flush out the "toxins" as you relax and tension is released. After the massage, it is suggested to take it easy and not do anything too strenuous. A hot shower or bath afterwards is a great way to extend the relaxing vibes and keep the muscles warm and loose.
Should I tip my massage therapist?
Tips are always appreciated, but not necessary. The full cost of the service goes directly to the massage therapist, and is priced fairly so that a tip is not needed. At establishments like hotels or massage chains, a tip is customary because that massage therapist gets a fraction of what is charged.
