Making the Most of Your Massage
WATER – Bodywork releases toxins, such as lactic acid and carbonic acid, that need to be flushed from the body. Increase your water intake for 48 hours after a massage to assist this process.

Stretching between massage helps to maintain joint mobility, prevents muscles from tightening up again, and keeps the life energy flowing.
Working out can help maintain the benefits of massage.
If you’re receiving massage therapy to help speed muscle strain recovery, you may need to ease up on exercise for a while to give the body time to heal.
Respect how your body feels, if it says “rest” honor that. Get sufficient sleep to allow the body to absorb the effects and regain vitality.
Support the body’s renewed state by adhering to a healthy diet.
If you experience chronic pain or are recovering from injury, it may take more sessions before optimal health is restored.
