DOS AND DON’TS BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR MASSAGE

  • It is best to arrive 15 minutes before your treatment.
  • Don’t eat a heavy meal before your treatment. It could make you feel uncomfortable during the session.
  • Don’t workout just before your treatment. This will create tension in your muscles and it will be harder for the therapist to get the muscles to respond to the treatment.
  • Keep your mobile on silent mode or switch it off.If you are a smoker, make sure that you don’t smoke for at least an hour before and after the massage session.
  • Drink plenty of water. Massage sets your lymph in motion and water helps in detoxification.
  • Communicate with your therapist before, during and after your massage. Let the therapist know why you want a massage and if you need special attention to certain areas. Feel free to ask them to increase or reduce the pressure applied if you feel any discomfort. Share your feedback with them or the spa manager after the session.

  • Do not eat right after the massage, unless your blood sugar has dropped drastically.
  • Massage lowers the blood sugar level. If you are insulin dependent, make sure to keep your blood sugar under control.
  • If you have an aromatherapy massage, it is ideal for the essential oils to stay on your body for as long as possible. Don’t take a shower right after the massage.
