AftercareThe aftercare that follows your massage treatment is as important as the treatment itself. After your massage you may experience some healing crisis, such as dizziness, fatigue, joint or muscles aches and intense emotional states. They are beneficial to your body so don’t worry, they are normal.
It is advisable that you drink a sufficient amount of water. This will help eliminate all the toxins from the body that have been released during the massage and to help stop you becoming dehydrated.
For the following 24-48hours after a massage treatment, only eat a light diet. Don’t drink alcohol and stimulants with caffeine (tea, coffee, energy drink and try to avoid nicotine, as your body needs time and energy to get rid of all the toxins that have been released because of the massage. Eating heavy or processed food within that 24-48 hour period takes away vital energy from that toxicity-flush out your body is currently processing – resulting in an unfinished treatment.
You have just relaxed yourself after having a massage and you don’t want to undo all the good work you have done. Instead drink plenty of water, fruit juice or herbal tea. Give your body a chance to take a rest for its usual routine and let it catch up.
