5 Self-Care Tips for Post-Deep Tissue Massage Recovery

After getting a deep-tissue massage from one of our Registered Massage Therapists, it is important to properly care for your body to get the maximum benefit out of the Massage and to stay healthy. Taking care of yourself should be a priority, so here are 5 self-care tips for post-deep tissue Massage recovery.

#1: Drink Plenty of Water 
Being well hydrated before and after a deep tissue Massage helps your body better absorb the Massage and process the release of toxins from the muscles. Drinking lots of water can also help reduce post-Massage soreness. Make sure you drink plenty of water before and especially after the Massage.

#2: Get Plenty of Rest 
Rest is crucial for post-Massage recovery. Getting adequate rest lets your body recover fully so the Massage effects last longer. Aim for 8 hours of sleep per night, and don’t be afraid to take a nap during the day if you need it.

#3: Stretch Regularly 
Tightness in your muscles can return quickly after a deep tissue Massage, so it’s necessary to stretch your muscles daily to keep them loose. Focus on the parts of your body the Massage targeted, gently stretching those parts to maintain feeling relaxed.

#4: Avoid Unnecessary Stress 
The power of a Massage really depends on letting go of stress and focusing on relaxation. If you can commit to avoiding extra stress as soon as possible after your Massage, you’ll be able to extend its healing effects.

#5: Eat Healthy Meals
Your body needs proper nutrition to properly recover after a Massage. Eating healthy meals full of proteins, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates helps repair muscle tissue and replenishes your energy.

Following these self-care tips after a deep tissue Massage can help you get the most out of your Massage and stay healthy at the same time!
