Massage - After Care Advice
Even though you have just had a relaxing treatment, and you can already feel the benefits of the treatment. Here are a few tips to ensure you look after yourself:
- Drink water straight after your treatment, it's really good to drink water to help the body to sweep away waste materials in the body. If the waste products are not released they may cause muscle soreness and aches after the massage.
- You may feel a little light-headed after the treatment, this is normal and will feel better after a short period of time.
- You may feel also tired after a treatment, this is very normal, massage not only treats your body, it also treats your mind and helps you to destress and relax so if you can... take a nap.
- After treatment, you may feel sore & achy, this is also normal and can last up to 48 hours.
- A warm bath may be what you need, add a few cups of Epsom salts to help relax your muscles. Be careful not to make the bath too hot as it may exacerbate your injury.
- It may take a few treatments to fully aid your recovery, but if you notice your symptoms have improved then we are on the right track.
Make a note of where you are now feeling tightness/pain and we can do further testing at your next appointment.
