How do I take care of myself after a massage?

You should drink plenty of water to flush the toxins out of your system. If you have access to a steam room or whirlpool, they are ideal ways to continue cleansing the system. If not, an Epsom salt bath followed by a hot is greatly beneficial.

For the 24 hours after a deep tissue massage you may feel a little sore or achy. This is a normal response – a lot of stuff gets stirred up and that feeling is a healing response. It should go away within 24 – 36 hours. Rest, healthy eating and fluids will help minimize the response.
