The average massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. This gives time for a deeply relaxing full body massage, or more in-depth work on a particular area. A half hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session on a specific area, and are frequently only scheduled as follow-up appointments. Many people prefer a 60- to 90-minute session for optimal results–either therapeutic, relaxation, or (my personal favorite to receive) a combination of both. Always allow relaxation time prior to and after the session; try not to rush yourself as your body adjusts after the treatment.
