Post- Massage Care
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Massage is dehydrating and can cause flu-like symptoms the next day if you do not replenish all that lost water. At least 3 glasses of water are recommended after treatment to flush out any toxins.
Sore? Add ice.
Ice helps reduce pain and inflammation. Use ice for 15-20 minutes to reduce any muscle soreness due to the massage.
Stretching after a massage session can keep joints mobile, maintain looseness in muscles and tissues, and improve flexibility.
Epsom Salt Bath
Epsom salt eases stress and relaxes the body, relieves pain and muscle cramps, and eliminates toxins from the body. Using 1 cup of Epsom Salt in a bath will help prevent the muscle soreness after the massage.
