How to Prepare for Your First Nuru Massage

Embarking on your first Nuru massage experience can be both exciting and a little nerve-wracking. At Nuru Massage Burbank, we aim to ensure that your session is as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. Here are some tips to help you prepare for your first Nuru massage and make the most out of your experience.

Understanding Nuru Massage

Nuru massage is a Japanese technique that involves the use of a special Nori seaweed gel, which creates a slippery and smooth surface for the therapist to glide over your body. The massage involves full-body contact and is designed to provide deep relaxation and enhance physical and emotional well-being. Knowing what to expect can help you feel more at ease and open to the experience.

Pre-Massage Preparation

To prepare for your Nuru massage, it’s important to stay hydrated and avoid heavy meals before your session. Drinking plenty of water helps to keep your muscles hydrated and can enhance the overall effectiveness of the massage. Wearing comfortable clothing and arriving a few minutes early can also help you to relax and settle into the calming environment of our salon.

During the Massage

During the Nuru massage, communication with your therapist is key. Feel free to express any preferences or concerns you may have, as this will help your therapist tailor the session to your specific needs. Relax and focus on your breathing, allowing yourself to fully immerse in the soothing sensations of the massage. Remember, this is your time to unwind and enjoy.


Preparing for your first Nuru massage can help to enhance your overall experience and ensure that you leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
