What Should I Do After My Massage?

It’s critical to drink plenty of water after your massage. That’s because through massage, we’re moving toxins along your bloodstream. Drinking water helps flush those out.


“I recommend that patients always gauge how they feel, write down how they felt the day before their massage, and then see how that’s different to how they feel afterwards,” said Melissa. It’s also important that patients are vocal about how they feel, if there’s something they did or didn’t prefer about their first massage. Melissa always wants patients to know that they’re in control and she will accommodate their preferences.

Take It Easy

One of the best things to do after massage therapy is to head home and take it easy. Read a book, take a nap, or watch TV to help extend that feeling of calmness.
