After receiving a massage in Cayman with Perfectly Pampered Cayman, there are a number of actions a client can take to get the most benefit out of the session. Always remember, if you have any questions regarding massage aftercare, please feel free to contact us.
Massage Grand Cayman – After Care
Drink Lots Of Water, Especially For The Next 24 Hours – This is perhaps the most important rule of all. Hydration is key to a healthy body, especially after a massage. Since massage promotes lymphatic movement, drinking water and hydrating yourself is key to moving toxins through the kidneys and out of the body. Drinking water is the best way to do this – and no, water in tea, coffee and soft drinks doesn’t count!
Pay Attention To Your Body’s Reaction To The Massage – You may be sore after the massage.
This is normal with Deep Tissue massage, but it can happen with the more gentle Swedish Massage as well. Sometimes you may not feel the soreness until the next day. Why? Massage is a sort of passive exercise. If you are not one to get massages often, or do not exercise and are not used to using the muscles, then they may respond with soreness. This should only last for a day or perhaps two. You can help your therapist by stretching before you arrive for your session.
Rest – You may feel tired, as if you want to lie down and take a nap. This is completely normal, and you should listen to your body. If you can, make sure you have nowhere to go and nothing to do after your massage. Massage is not just work on the body; it is work on the mind too. It helps to de-stress and relax you; this in turn may make you feel tired. This is your time to recover your mind and body and it is your body’s time to re-balance itself and re-tune. Make time for yourself and your body will thank you.
Welcome Different Emotions – Sometimes, if you have been experiencing lots of stress, you may feel the need to cry after the massage. Alternatively, you may feel elated, on cloud nine, full of energy. Either response is normal. The key is not to try to keep these emotions out. The massage may channel these feelings and multiply them; whichever way, this is what the body needs. Let it come and you will feel that much better afterward.
