After Your Massage

After your massage you may notice profound changes in your body and mind.  Here are some things that have helped many people get the most from their massage.

1. Drink extra water. How much water you drink after a massage depends on how much you drink on a regular basis. Regardless of how much you drink on a regular basis, drink extra, to avoid dehydration, continued improved circulation, reduce muscle soreness, and to help flush the waste which was massaged from the body.

2. It would be best if you have scheduled time to rest after your massage. Take a nap or go to bed early. Take advantage of the relaxation the massage has provided especially if you have been facing imbalanced sleep or insomnia. 

3. Depending on the type of work you have received and what is currently going on in your body, stretch, and apply ice and/or heat based on advice given. Gentle movement sometime in the few hours after your massage can encourage your muscles to work in a balanced and efficient way. Gentle movement is especially important after lymphatic massage. 

4. People sometimes experience soreness for 1 to 2 days days after a massage session depending on the depth of the bodywork. Extensive deep tissue bodywork may cause temporary swelling and tenderness due to the release of lactic acid and other metabolic waste. This soreness feels much like the soreness one gets from working out. If you do feel sore, stretch gently, apply an ice pack to the area for 20 minutes several times or take a warm bath with Epsom salts. If this soreness continues or discomfort increases, please do not hesitate to call.
