DRINK LOTS OF WATER
Drinking water helps the body flush out any accumulated materials (toxins) in the muscles which were released during the massage. Massage stimulates circulation and is designed to carry away waste materials generated by cells, this is done through expressing water, salt, and other minerals from the muscles. By providing the body with plenty of water both pre and post treatment, massage clients can assisst the body by flushing away waste materials; dehydration causes toxins to build up, causing muscle aches and soreness after a massage.
PAY ATTENTION YOUR BODY
Massage can sometimes leave you feeling sore, especially if your muscles are not used of being stimulated through regular massage or exercise, however this should only last a day or two. To reduce soreness follow after care steps and remember to advise your therapist at your next treatment.
TAKE A BATH
A nice warm bath (not hot) is very soothing and is a great way to relax after your massage. Adding Epsom Salts to your bath should help flush out toxins from your body. Epsom Salts include Magnesium Sulfate, which is a natural muscle relaxer.
After a massage you may feel tried, this is completely normal, listen to your body as this is your time to recover, repair and retune your self. Massage is not just a workout on the body it's also a workout on the mind, massage helps with de-stressing and relaxing and may in turn make you feel tired so try not to make any big plans directly after your massage.
Both during and after a massage you may feel a range of emotions, its normal for the body to release the emotional baggage you are holding on to as your body relaxes. Sometimes if you have been experiencing stress on a high level you may feel the need to cry, alternatively you may feel over the moon and elated or full of energy. Either is a natural response, so go with it and try not to suppress your emotions, allow these to come and you will feel much better afterwards.
