THINGS TO DO AFTER A MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy is a very relaxing experience. You are bound to feel great after all that attention that your body gets. During the massage, everything is pretty easy and standard- you just lay there, with your eyes closed and forget all the worries of the world for some time. You let the masseuse do everything. There is not much role for us to play during the massage. However, what should you do after the massage? To reap maximum benefits of the massage that you have undergone, there are certain things you can do. Here are some of them:
- Get a bath- after a relaxing massage session, it is highly advisable to get a warm bath. This is mainly to remove excess oils from the skin. Baths are also recommended to keep the blood flowing. Benefits aside, getting a bath after massage adds on to the relaxation effects.
- Do some stretching exercises- One of the main reasons why certain exercises like yoga are incorporated into massage therapies like Thai massage is that it is highly advisable to stretch after a massage. All the knots and tension in your muscles have been relieved. Now, stretching them is going to reset them and make them ready for the day. Remember to keep yourself active after the massage. You do not exactly have to go running or do some strenuous exercise, but just keep the body moving.
It is easy to go home and fall asleep especially because you are stress-free and taking a nap makes perfect sense. However, your body needs something opposite to this. Sleeping would not necessarily help you get 100% out of your massage session. Move around, keep the blood flowing, and when you go to sleep at the end of the day, we bet you will have a good one.
