A well-designed massage room creates a calming atmosphere that allows a massage therapist, or masseuse, to successfully perform his art. A massage relieves tension, muscle pain and stiffness. It increases circulation and can be used to treat chronic ailments like arthritis, migraines and repetitive stress conditions. Spot massages can be done in almost any location, but a full body massage requires a well-equipped room that’s peaceful and quiet. The massage table should have a smooth surface and medium-firm padding. It should be made from a washable material. Paint the room calming colors like neutral beige, pale blue or sea green.
