After Care and Self Care is for all body types. While we can make progress in our sessions, there is much that you can do to continue your healing. Whether you’re an athlete, recovering from a surgery, living with chronic pain, or experiencing pain for the first time, there are options for you to help yourself.
Always drink extra water after a massage. This will insure you are flushing out any toxins that were stirred up during the massage. These toxins can contribute to sore muscles afterwards. This shouldn’t last for more than a day or two. So flush them out, and give your body that extra boost to recover!
Stretching can become a regular part of your Self Care routine or a survival technique in times of unexpected pain.
While experiencing these stretches, remember to listen to your body. It will tell you if you are pushing it too far. You should feel a good stretch without pain. The goal is not to force your body into a pose it’s not ready for. The goal is to allow your body to relax into the stretch as it is ready for it. If you’re not flexible, that’s okay! Flexibility comes over time, and as you become more regular in your stretching practice you’ll see improvement.
Detoxing your body with an Epsom Salt bath after a treatment can extend the benefits of your session. Make sure the treated areas of your body are submerged in the water so they will be fully affected by the bath.
- 2 CUPS EPSOM SALT
- AROMATHERAPY (optional) Lavender, Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus
- 20 MINUTES IN THE BATH.
