Our Spring Theme is 6 Things to do to feel Amazing after your Massage!

1.Drink Plenty of Water, or try relaxing with some herbal tea!⁣

Massage promotes the breakdown of metabolic waste, and your body requires water to flush this through the lymphatic system. Your kidneys will be working harder than usual, which will draw water from your bloodstream.⁣

Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as they will dehydrate you further.⁣

2.Have a Healthy Snack⁣

Massage can lower your blood sugar levels, which can leave you feeling lightheaded. In fact, it has even been shown to reduce blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. ⁣

A light, unprocessed snack containing healthy carbohydrates, fats, and protein is the best choice. Try vegetable sticks with homemade hummus or an apple with almond butter, or the perfect green smoothie.⁣

3.Take it Easy

If possible, take the rest of the day off as “me-time”, or at least a few hours to yourself. ⁣

Try to avoid stressful situations and negative media, as these will spike your blood pressure.⁣

Allow at least 12 hours between a massage and heavy exercise. Because your muscles will have been loosened during your treatment, a heavy workout will place them under strain. ⁣

4.Address Muscle Soreness

A deep tissue massage can be like a thorough workout for your muscles. Take similar measures to those you use following exercise. Take an epsom salt bath, apply a topical cream, or do some light stretching to reduce discomfort. ⁣

5.Change into suitable clothes⁣

After a massage, wearing restrictive clothing will probably feel uncomfortable. When preparing for a treatment, pack soft, loose-fitting clothes you can change into afterwards.⁣ Or even better, come wearing your comfy clothes.

7.Be prepared to experience some deep emotions⁣

Massage can release a lot of stress. If this has been building for some time, you might feel the urge to cry following your treatment. ⁣

This is completely normal. Let the feelings come and go.⁣
