Post-Massage Homework

After receiving a massage, I become quite the big baby!  “No! It’s over!” So what do I do to make sure I’m getting the most out of bodywork at home? Here’s a few things you can do to let that massage sit with you for a few days.

  • Keep yourself hydrated (water please). Dehydrated body = sore and tired body.
  • Take a warm shower or bath
  • Throw some bath salts or epsom salts into the bath.
  • Stretch out a bit or do some yoga.
  • Meditate
  • Self-massage areas you can reach.
  • Throw a neck warmer on (or ice for injuries).
  • Snuggle into bed and get some rest.
  • Pre-book your next appointment. The more you remember to book massages, the more you will stick to a schedule and keep you feeling great!

Do you have any ideas to keep your massage vibe going?
