Massage Tips

How to get the most from your treatment...

Pre Massage

  • Drink plenty of water as your body needs to be hydrated
  • Arrive on time to avoid any unnecessary stress

During Massage

  • Communicate with your practitioner, if you are uncomfortable or if the pressure is not right you must let the therapist know so you have the full benefit of the massage
  • Concentrate on your breathing, long deep breaths particularly if an area is being worked on that may be tight or tender.
  • If you want to talk during your treatment then that is great but always remember that silence is acceptable also and can often deepen your experience.
  • Your massage is your time so relax and enjoy!

Post Massage

  • Again drink plenty of water as this helps to flush out any toxins that may have been stirred up during the massage. Water replenishes and cleanses your system.
  • Have a bath with Epsom salts. This helps clear and draw out any impurities from the body. You can buy them from most pharmacies.
  • Avoid being busy or stressed, maybe do something you enjoy.

Ongoing

  • Stretching, even if its only 5 minutes a day this will ease muscle tightness.
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Exercise, try to find 20 minutes a day whether its 20 minutes of gardening or a 20 minute walk? It's all good for you!
