Before & Aftercare

A consultation will be carried out before each treatment. At the end of each treatment an after-care leaflet may be provided to give you with all the information you will need to get the best out of your treatment.

BEFORE:

  • Please exfoliate your whole body prior to my arrival and leave it clean of any products
  • Please remove all jewellery

AFTERCARE:

  • Try to relax and take it easy for the rest of the day – nap if you can and feel the need to
  • Drink PLENTY of water for 24 hours following your massage as your lymph nodes have been stimulated and are removing toxins from your body. Your urine may be much darker than normal-this is the toxins leaving your body
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine and fizzy drinks as they can dehydrate the body and reverse the effects of the massage by adding more toxins to your body which the massage is in-turn aiding the body in removing
  • Avoid eating a heavy and especially spicy meal so your body can concentrate on natural healing and detoxifying itself
  • Avoid heat treatments for 24 hours (saunas, hot baths /showers, body wraps, sunbeds)

‘Healing Reactions’ may take place after your massage and are completely normal-showing that the massage is working well and your body is responding to the treatment. Indications of this may result in the following:

  • Increased sweating, urination or thirst
  • Irritable or energised
  • Sounder sleeping and vivid dreams
  • Runny, blocked or stuffy nose
  • Heightened emotions (low or high)
  • Fatigued or tired (although this could be a sign of deep relaxation, especially if you are normally always on the go)
