Why Choosing the right massage music for your clients is so important

The right musical selection can enhance the relaxing ambiance of a massage session. Massage therapists rely on client’s relaxation for optimal therapeutic results. Whether a client requests a session for relaxation, wellness, injury prevention or specific treatment, all types of bodywork are enhanced when the body is relaxed.

Listening to music that causes discomfort or irritation sparks the tightening of muscles, a programmed reaction meant to protect and mask our feelings. During massage, this type of response works contrary to the intended result. Whether conscious or unconscious, the clenching or tightening associated with a negative response will inhibit the body’s circulation, hindering the massage’s goal of releasing muscle tissue. If a client dislikes the music, then he/she will not be relaxed during a session, and the treatment will not have the full, desired effect. Massage therapists are typically aware of the direct relationship between relaxation and massage, often going to great lengths to bring comfort to their clients.

Everyone is different

When deciding what music to choose for a session, understand that peoples’ preferences for music run a wide gamut. This includes both the preferences of the therapist and the client. All massage therapists have different styles, thus finding tunes to meld with your work is going to be highly personal. Additionally, choosing music that your client enjoys, but you dislike, will also hamper the experience for both of you. Deciphering your client’s musical preferences may take some time, as many people are often unaware of the sounds that best suit them. Therefore, it is worthwhile to discuss musical preferences with your client before, during and after the session.

Tempo

As reported in the online publication Heart, Italian researchers reported; “Music induces an arousal effect, predominantly related to the tempo. Slow or meditative music can induce a relaxing effect; relaxation is particularly evident during a pause. Music, especially in trained subjects, might first concentrate attention during faster rhythms, then induce relaxation during pauses or slower rhythms.”

Most experts suggest that music’s rhythm or beat unconsciously denotes its calming effects. Music with a slow rhythm (slower than the natural heart beat which is about 72 beats per minute), and a repeating or cyclical pattern, is found to be most effective in relaxing people. It is theorized that humans are influenced by the heartbeat of our mother while still in the womb. A relaxing response to certain music throughout life is perhaps associated with the safe, relaxing and protective environment provided by our mother. #holistic #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #holistichealing #holisticwellness #holisticnutritionist #naturalremedies #prevention #effective #inflammation #recharge #feelingrelaxed #livelifetothefullest #lovethelifeyoulive #mobilemassage #mobilemassagetherapist #mobilemassagepro #mobilemassagetherapy #mobilemassages #mobilemassagelondon #mobilemassageservices #mobilemassagelife #mobilemasseuse #mobilemassageinlondon #mobilemassageandwellness #massages #greatstuff #massagetherapist #instamoods
