We often discuss the many wonderful benefits a massage can have on the body. From relaxed muscles to an overall reduction in stress and anxiety, the effects massage can have are truly incredible.
Part of ensuring that you get the most out of your massage and that you’re properly caring for your body, is taking the appropriate steps before and after your treatment. Here are some pointers on how to fully reap the benefits of your massage experience.
Prepping prior to your massage is key. If you’re planning any rigorous workouts the day of your massage, we recommend doing them before your session. Massage helps to lengthen and loosen up the muscular system. Attempting to perform high-intensity activities immediately following a massage may increase your risk of injury. The ideal time to get a massage would be after a workout, to help soothe tired muscles.
