BEFORE MASSAGE Make sure that the location is warm. Keep in mind that you will feel much warmer, giving the massage, than the person lying still to receive the massage. When doing lenghty massages it is best to cover the parts of the body that you are currently not working on. You can use a blanket or a towel. It might be a good idea to work with multiple towels and put them on the heating, so they are nice and warm. If you have an electrical blanket it is excellent for keeping the person warm, comfortable and fully relaxed.
