What you should expect from a full body massage in St. Petersburg, FL


At the beginning of the session, the client undresses and lies down on the table. Then the massage therapist usually begins by rubbing the client’s back, shoulders, back, and legs until they turn over in the middle of the session. At this point, the massage therapist will massage the front of the legs and feet, then move up to the arms chest, and neck. If you have some areas that have issues then the therapist usually focuses more time on those areas. This means that other body parts might be neglected but it is worth it if you are focused on fixing a bigger problem.

There are many types of treatments at the spa such as deep tissue massage that focuses on tight muscles while also breaking up muscle knots.

Past history of full body massage


The past history of a full-body massage is interesting because it was actually invented in the 1880s as a Rest Cure for neurasthenia patients. The invention of full-body massage helped patients increase their appetite.


Massage therapy and massage therapists became popular in the late 1800s, but by the 1960s the terms “massage parlor” and “massage therapist” had become offensive because they were associated with prostitution.
