Feeling this good comes with the territory.  Your muscles will feel relaxed and perhaps a bit like jelly at first. This will pass as you start to move around a bit and get dressed. Some clients have likened this beneficial feeling to a meditative, healing trance. Although after an hour you will not want your treatment to end, it must eventually. 1 hour often goes much too fast clients tell me and this is why I recommend 1.5 hours.

Benefits After: What to Expect

Overall, massage treatment can leave you feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready to take on the day. You may feel light on your feet, floating like a feather.  It’s a great way to treat yourself to some much-needed relaxation and self-care. After your massage, it is important to take it easy for a little while and give your body some time to adjust. You may feel slightly lightheaded which is perfectly normal. Take your time getting up from the massage table and take deep breaths to help ground yourself. In addition to feeling relaxed, many people experience an uplift in their well-being afterwards. This is because massage can stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural mood boosters. You can feel happier, more centred, and less stressed after your massage. You can get all of this for just 1 hour or I recommend 1.5 hours of your time. Call 07979 814 388 to book your appointment to bliss out today.

Post-Massage Care and Self-Care Tips

Avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting and give yourself time to rest and relax. You may also want to try some self-care practices like taking a warm bath, doing some gentle stretching, or practising deep breathing exercises.

It’s also important to drink plenty of water after your massage. Fluids have been brought to the surface and pushed through the body to clean them and they need replacing. You should also avoid alcohol and caffeine for at least a few hours after your massage, as these can interfere with the benefits of the treatment. Eat light, healthy foods for your next meal. Lastly, whatever happens try to put your feet up and relax to really enjoy that overall feeling of well-being you are likely to have after treatment. Lastly, go on, smile. If you feel good so why not show that to the people around you?
