In the privacy of the treatment room, you and your massage therapist will go over your intake form and reasons for seeking massage therapy. You will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns or to ask any questions you may have about massage therapy. Your massage therapist will then briefly go over a plan for your massage therapy session. If you have any questions, feel free to speak up.
Good communication is key to achieving the best results during your massage appointment. This is your massage. Be sure to give feedback to help your therapist meet your specific needs. Communicate with your therapist if you feel any pain or discomfort, or if you have any concerns during your massage.

Massage draws the blood flow to the area tissues being worked on and therefore draws the blood away from the digestive tract causing poor digestion and possible discomfort.
