If your unsure just share with us your concerns and what you would like to improve. We are happy to give you our recommendation!
Think about your day’s schedule before you set up your massage. For example, don’t eat right before or exercise immediately after your massage. You’ll want to make sure you are well hydrated all day as well. We recommend that it’s best to just relax afterwards. However, Many athletes will get massages the day before and after a large event which can help loosen the muscles and help with performance.
Massage has been shown to have a range of health benefits, from lowering blood pressure to easing migraines. Research has demonstrated that massage may help relieve pain for patients with cancer, HIV, and Parkinson’s Disease. Massage can also help lower stress, which is a good thing for your overall health.
If you have a serious medical condition, you should clear a massage with your doctor first.
It shouldn’t hurt but you should keep the lines of communication open. If a therapist is pressing too deeply in an area you should tell them. You should never have to endure a massage. Sometimes correcting chronic injuries can be a little uncomfortable but it shouldn’t be painful. Massage should always leave you felling better than when you came in.
