What should you do after receiving a massage?
At AOL Massage, we want to make sure the benefits of a therapeutic session are going to last as long as possible. For this reason, it’s important to get the most out of your massage treatment. What you do after a massage is just as important, if not more important, than getting a massage. Therefore, be properly prepared to receive a professional massage. Learn what you should do or not do post-massage. Take steps to make that post-massage feeling last.
Avoiding Strenuous Exercise
Muscle soreness may occur post massage therapy. However, it will disappear 24-48 hours after your visit. Therefore, you must wait a minimum of 24 hours to exercise the muscles treated during the massage.
Drinking water helps to eliminate and remove more toxins post-massage.
Applying an Anti-Inflammatory Gel
If muscle soreness is severe, gently apply an anti-inflammatory gel on the affected for relief.
