Next close the shades and dim the lights or, if you prefer, light some candles. Unscented candles are the best bet if you’re using scented massage oil. Clashing scents can be bother-some for the person you’re massaging; in fact, he or she may be allergic. The same goes for you: avoid strong-smelling perfumes or colognes. On the other hand, the person you’re massaging may enjoy scented candles or even incense, so be sure to ask.

The room temperature should be comfortable for the person receiving the massage.
