Regular massage (at least once a month) is recommended for optimal health. Massage is considered an alternative or holistic therapy. If you have a medical condition, please ask your physician about receiving massage first. Some health issues will need a doctor’s clearance prior to massage treatment.

It should also be noted that drinking plenty of water before AND after a massage is critical. Since massage increases circulation and stimulates lymph flow, toxins and waste buildup in the muscles are released, therefore plenty of water is needed to help flush the toxins completely out of the system. If enough water is not drunk, there is a possibility of muscle soreness. Another reason to drink plenty of water after a massage is because it dehydrates the system. A good rule of thumb is that you are probably never drinking enough water after a massage! You probably need twice as much as you normally drink in a day, and possibly more. Deeper pressure, heat therapies (Steam, Hot Stone, etc.,) and longer treatments will require even more water. Headaches after a massage can also indicate insufficient hydration.
