Questions often asked:
I’ve never had a massage in my own home before. Is there anything I need to know before the out-call masseuse arrives?
Anticipate an amazing professional massage session with us!! Thinking positive will put you in a perfect frame of mind to get maximum benefit from your massage. Try not to consume any alcohol or eat a heavy meal at least 4 hours before the session. Be sure the room you will use for the massage is WARM and has enough space for a full size massage table (6'2" x 2'4") with room for the masseuse to move around the massage table. Just before your masseuse arrives have a warm shower and dress lightly. Please ensure no animals such as dogs are running about so you are able to relax and enjoy the massage without having to worry about a dog suddenly licking your face during the massage!
What should I feel like after my massage and what aftercare advice should I follow?
In order to gain the maximum benefit from a treatment, I recommend that you:Avoid excessive tea and coffee, smoking and drinking alcohol for up to 24 hours after treatment. As you will be slightly dehydrated after the massage so it is best to not drink anything that will slow down the elimination of the toxins.
The detoxifying process can cause feelings of slight nausea. If this is the case, drink plenty of water.
Increase the amount of water you drink over the next few days Only eat light meals to help assists the body’s natural healing process.
Rest after the treatment and take time out to relax to allow the body to heal and get the full therapeutic benefits of the massage.
