Equine massage therapy

So, my gelding is getting his first visit from a massage therapist tonight. What should I do to prepare when I get to the trainer's? I planned on getting there 15 minutes early to brush him and pick his feet. Should I crosstie him or leave him in his stall?

Yes brush & clean him up, pick out his feet as it's very hands on for the practioner so it's considerate to have a clean horse to work on, towel him down as well. As for tying him or keeping him stalled, which ever is quicker to have him ready when the therapist arrives. Ideally it would be good if you could could walk him around for a bit before they arrive.
