To retain the positive effects of the massage one should:
- Drink plenty of water-to help flush out the toxins which will have been released from the tissues.
- Avoid alcohol or any other stimulants (coffee, tea, caffeinated drinks) for at least 12 hours after treatment.
- Rest after the treatment if possible to allow the body to heal and settle.
- Avoid heavy and rich food.
Feeling tired and relaxed is common after a massage, try not to fight it.
