In giving hilot massage, it is discourage to have conversation with the client during massage except before you give hilot and in taking the clients health profile. Be reminded that the goal of hilot session is to provide the client a means to improve relaxation; improve sense of well being; and to reduce stress.
Thus talking during the conduct of hilot will disrupt the goal of relaxation.
The only communication that is allowable during the hilot session is through the therapeutic touch that we apply to the skin of our client. We are advised to monitor client response during the hilot session, and that is through visual observation of the clients reaction to the pressure we are giving during the session.
Each of our hand movements towards the clients body is a well meaningful gestures. Even before giving hilot when we do pulse reading analysis, the body internal organs speaks to us to tell the overall condition of our client thus giving us idea on what aspect of the clients need to work out for improvement.
