Our top 3 tips to prolong the benefits of massage
If you’re going to take advantage of this relaxing treatment, we want to ensure you experience the full benefits for as long as possible, so here are our top 3 tips to prolong the benefits of a massage:
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: keeping hydrated after a massage is very important. Massages release toxins that have built up from your muscles, which then need to be flushed from your lymphatic system. You should also limit alcohol and caffeine intake 48 hours after a massage as they dehydrate your body.
2. Gentle exercise and stretching: although you shouldn’t engage in stressful physical activity straight after your massage light exercise is extremely beneficial. Following a deep tissue massage, your muscles tend to stiffen up, causing short term discomfort. Keep on top of stiffness with some gentle exercise such as yoga, walking or stretching to mobilise joints and encourage blood flow.
3. Have a soak in the bath: taking a warm bath the evening of your massage will continue to relax and release the tension from your muscles. It’s always best to ask your massage therapists advise on bath temperatures, because depending on the type of massage you’ve had (e.g. injury focused) if the water is too hot you risk causing inflammation. Add a cup of Epsom salts to the bath as the magnesium in the salts helps relieve pain, soreness and boosts detoxification.
