Aftercare Advice

Massage Me’s menu is designed to help you relax both body and mind. To keep these feelings of wellbeing going and going … and going :

  • Make time for yourself before and after your massage session to really max out the relaxation

  • Drink plenty of water to keep rehydrated and flush out toxins after a session

  • Avoid adding new toxins to your body like alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine etc

  • Did we use aromatherapy oils with you? Give them time to soak in and do their job

  • If we didn’t use aromatherapy oils, think about taking a bath to really loosen up and keep that ‘mmmmm’ massage feel going!

  • Dress in flowing, loose clothing after your session. Avoid elastics and man-made fabrics

If you have any other questions, check our FAQ’s page.. But our best advise? Book another massage!

SIDE EFFECTS

Sometimes, you may feel a few side effects after a massage - but they are all signs that the massage was a success and your body is eliminating toxins from your system and beginning to self-heal. You might experience :

  • The need for more regular trips to the toilet

  • Cold-like symptoms, such as a headache, runny nose and/or cough

  • Slight rash as the skin rebalances

  • Any dormant conditions, which have been suppressed, could flare up temporarily as part of the healing process

  • Changes to usual sleeping pattern - either extremely deep sleep or difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams

  • Achy or sore muscles - especially after a sports or deep tissue massage

These reactions will be short lived - around 24 / 28 hours and not something to worry about but a sign of the body rebalancing and cleansing itself. However, if you have any concerns, please call us on +33 (0)4 79 04 20 66 7 days a week, between 8am - 8pm.
