3 benefits of using massage table
Everybody seems to talk about what you should be doing during a massage treatment, but what about after?
Here are some tips for getting the most out of your session.
1. Drink Water.
We know that 75% of our body is made up of water. When we don’t get the necessary amount, our body starts to shut down, starting with non-crucial functions first. Massage helps to increase the circulation of both the lymphatic system and the blood. After your massage treatment you should be drinking at least a litre of water. Caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee can be counterproductive to your hydration efforts so it’s also a good idea to avoid these drinks following your massage.
2. Refuel your body
After your muscles have been relieved of all their stress and tension your body needs a fuel boost. Have a little snack on hand to have after your treatment.
Massage is not just work on the body; it is work on the mind too. After a massage you need even more sleep to help your body process the toxins and repair. You feel more relaxed , your muscles are looser, you feel content and calm. Listen to your body. If you feel like having a sleep, do it.
Make time for yourself and your body will thank you.
