Aftercare Advice

During massage treatments, toxins are expelled from the tissues and the body systems are stimulated to eliminate waste more efficiently. Therefore, please do not be alarmed if you experience some after effects – this is normal and a positive sign that your body is responding and starting to balance itself.

Typical after effects can include:

  • Headaches
  • Increased urination/bowel movements
  • Increased thirst
  • Stiffness in muscles
  • Sleepiness/extreme fatigue
  • Heightened emotional state
  • Bruising (Sometimes in Sports massage or with deeper pressure and trigger pointing technique) These after effects should resolve in the next 24-48 hours.

To continue enjoying the treatment it is advisable to:

  • Drink plenty of water to re-hydrate the body and help flush out the toxins that have been released
  • Avoid stimulants such as alcohol/caffeine for at least 12 hrs after treatment as  they dehydrate the body
  • Eat only small meals to help with the healing process (over the next 12 hrs)
  • Avoid smoking for 24 hours as it will introduce toxins back into the body
  • Avoid strenuous activity for the next 24 hrs
  • Rest and relax to allow the body to heal and settle
  • Bruising (Sometimes in Sports massage or with deeper pressure and trigger pointing technique)
