*  Drink plenty of water the day you receive massage, especially deep 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

*  Stretching; destressing/mediation; proper body mechanics using mindfulness while sitting/standing/sports; self massage using a tennis ball, golf ball, foam roll, and therapy cane are all great ways to maintain relaxed muscles in between massage sessions 

*  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


*  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 twisting, heavy lifting, or vigorous activity is unavoidable, wearing a brace is advisable 

*  use caution for up to 48 hours. During this period it is possible for alcohol to have a tripled effect

*  refrain from drinking more than 1 ser of caffeine 1 hr after your session. Caffeine may recreate tension, especially on the backside of the body
