If you choose a mindful massage, you can decide to begin the session with a 5 minute guided Body Scan while lying on your back. A guided body scan is a simple mechanism to feel the sensations of your body from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. This may enhance the massage making the most out of the hands doing the work.
You can choose to end the massage, while the therapists massages your neck and face, with a simple guided 3 minute mindful meditation. This will close the massage mindfully with a sense of renewed energy and presence. Remember to remain mindful after each massage by focusing in the here and now!
