What should I expect if this is my first massage?

First time clients may be a little nervous or apprehensive prior to their first massage.  Understandable as this can be a vulnerable situation on top of unfamiliar.  Clients are advised to be on time to avoid any panic, and to dress comfortably.  If coming straight from work, many like to bring a change of clothes so they may put on clean or more comfortable clothes after the session is over.  As courtesy to the therapist, good hygienic practices are greatly appreciated.  Clients are expected to be clean for the health and comfort not only for them, but the therapist as well.
