  • Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours, as massage is a detoxifying treatment.

  • Drink plenty of water to assist in the elimination of toxins from the body.

  • Eat a light diet to assist the detoxification and healing process.

  • Get plenty of rest. You may feel tired after a treatment.

  • Gentle exercise, postural exercises can help with muscle tension as well as exercises that will assist with mobility. Yoga is a suitable and gentle option.

  • Do breathing exercises to assist with taking in oxygen to your fullest capacity.

  • Research the possibility of treatment options to assist with stress and other conditions, if necessary.   

Contra-actions (healing)

Occasionally, you may experience any of the following reactions after treatment; this is known as a contra-action and is the body’s response to the treatment:

  • Headache 

  • Dizziness or nausea 

  • Disrupted sleeping pattern 

  • Muscles may feel tired and achy 

  • Increased urination or passing stools 

  • Increased thirst 

  • Fatigue 

These reactions are uncommon but perfectly normal and show that toxins are being expelled from the body, so that it may rebalance and cleanse itself.
