DON’T FORGET TO DRINK WATER
Here’s what happens when you don’t drink a glass of water after a massage therapy session: A massage leaves you dehydrated, due to which both circulation systems, blood, and lymphatic become sluggish. The lymphatic system, in particular, isn’t able to do its job of carrying toxins out of your body, leading to a toxic build-up, and defeating the purpose of getting a detoxifying massage.
DON’T SHOWER IMMEDIATELY
Many of my customers admit that they shower as soon as their massage session has ended, mostly to wash off the oil. This is a big mistake. Truth is that the massage simply heats up the essential oils, and they still need another hour to get absorbed into the skin cells.
Instead, Wait for an Hour Before Hitting the Shower.
DON’T EAT A HEAVY MEAL AFTER A MASSAGE
Massages make you feel hungry. That’s because of the increased blood circulation which induces all your body systems into high-performance mode – including the digestive system. A heavy meal, however, will only make your body feel sluggish, bloated, and lethargic, instead of energized,
Try eating a Light Snack Instead,
DON’T HEAD OUTSIDE OR DO ANYTHING STRENUOUS,
An hour-long massage sets your body and mind to relax-mode. It’s best to let it continue in that state of being instead of ‘waking them up’. Also doing any kind of strenuous activity can injure your muscles. After a massage, you should try prolonging the feeling of calmness. Rest, relax and chill, do anything that relaxes you physically and mentally. It’s best to book a massage for a day when you know you’ll be home for a good 4-6 hours.
