What happens to your body when you have a treatment?
Getting a massage can help flush some of the toxins out of our bodies and can help to increase the circulation of both the blood and the lymphatic system. Your blood needs water in it to keep it moving and doing its job of bringing oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, organs and other tissues
What should I wear?
Loose fitted clothing would be the most appropriate to wear during treatment as it allows the practitioner to carry out a full assessment.
What should I do after a treatment?
• Skip Your Latte, Grab Your Water Bottle- Massage gets your blood circulating and begins to release built-up toxins so keep yourself hydrated.
• Feeling Sore? Apply heat e.g. Hot water bottle/wheat bag/warm bath
• Fuel Your Body
• Postpone Your Workout
• Epsom Salt Bath/Muscle Soak
What should you not do after treatment?
Avoid caffeine and alcohol, which are dehydrating. Hydration is key to help flush waste and prevent next-day soreness and at least for those first few hours after a massage, this will ensure extended benefits from your treatment
How often should you have treatment?
Most elite athletes get at least one massage per week. For most amateur athletes who still take their sport and training seriously or regular gym-goers, once a week to once a fortnight is recommended. For most people who do the regular light exercise once every two, three or four weeks is usually sufficient, depending on the complaint.
