Prolonging the Effects of Your Massage

• After your massage, drink plenty of water through the next two to three days

• Eat light foods and try to rest after the treatment

• Do not engage in any stressful activity if possible. If working out at the gym, it is not recommended to lift weights after a deep tissue massage

• Enjoy the application of oils from the treatment as they continue to moisturize your skin

• Moist heat (i.e. hot water packs) and ice can be used alternately for 10 minutes on areas of soreness to heal the areas where deeper massage work was performed

Epsom Salts

• Soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts (pictured). Epsom Salts help relieve pain and soreness, and helps draw toxins from the body

• It is not uncommon to feel soreness after a massage. The health spa massage therapist has uncovered an area where there is a lot of tension. Alternating hot and cold compresses on the area of soreness will help, as well
