After receiving a deep tissue massage such as Ashiatsu, your muscles will be very supple, increasing the chances of injury.
Please take the following precautions for the first 48 hours after receiving a massage.
Drink plenty of water.
Passively stretch your muscles.
Wear back or neck support if your work requires rough daily activity.
Treat yourself to a hot bath, steam room, or hot sauna.
Sit for long periods of time in a hard chair – to avoid compressing your back.
Lift heavy objects or perform any heavy yard/house work.
Engage in any contact sports or those that involve twisting.
Drink heavy alcohol within 24 hours of receiving your massage – you may experience a ‘lactic acid hangover’ due to dehydration coupled with the deep compression work.
