Massage after care advice

To ensure that you gain maximum benefit from a massage treatment, I recommend that you:

  • Loosen tight clothing – this inhibits lymph flow
  • Increase the amount of water you drink over the next few days – the body will be in a state of high toxicity for a few days after the treatment
  • Reduce your caffeine intake (coffee, tea, colas)
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours
  • Try to cut down on smoking
  • Make time to rest and relax- this allow the blood pressure to return to normal if has dropped during a treatment (this often happens)
  • Regular (but not too strenuous) exercise helps with muscle contraction, therefore lymph flow
  • Deep diaphragmatic breathing also helps to promote healthy lymph congestion
  • Diet is important; a light diet of row foods id recommended so that the body does not need to concentrate on sluggish digestions. Remember, low sodium diets are recommended for a healthy lymphatic system – poor diets are a contributing factor to poor lymphatic drainage

Occasionally, you may experience reactions when the body its self-healing process and elimination of toxins. These reactions may include:

  • Frequent visit to the toilet
  • Runny nose and/or cough
  • Slight rush as the skin rebalances
  • Perspiration – another way that the body can excrete waste
  • Conditions which have been suppressed may flare up temporarily before they heal
  • Deep sleep or difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams

Those reactions are only temporary and should clear within 24-48 hours. They are positive signals that your body has responded to the treatment and is balancing itself.

Stay Well!!!
