Aftercare

AFTER THAI & ASHI

*  Drink plenty of water the day you receive massage, especially deeper work. This flushes out toxins that surface during massage. Otherwise, these toxins may produce soreness in a day or two. It's recommended to drink half your body weight in ounces. Example: a 100 lb person should drink 50 ounces of water

 

*  Self Care: stretching; de-stressing and meditation; using proper body mechanics while driving, sitting, standing, sleeping, & playing sports; self massage using a tennis ball, golf ball, or foam roll

 

*  A hot bath, heat pad, sauna, hot tub, or steam room are more great ways to relax and ease the muscles in between massage sessions

 

AFTER ASHI

 *  Relaxing is recommended for 24-48 hours after this style of bodywork. Muscles remain in a super relaxed state for this period and will be more susceptible to injury. If extreme twisting, heavy lifting, or vigorous activity are unavoidable, wearing a brace is advised

 

*  During this period it is possible for alcohol to have a tripled effect, so use caution

 

*  Refrain from drinking more than 1 serving of caffeine 1 hour after your session. Caffeine may recreate tension, especially on the backside of the body
