So this might be my inner athlete coming out but it’s true. I try to arrive at least 10 minutes before the massage, not to fill out paper work but to create a buffer from the busy day that was and the massage that I’m about to get. I enjoy some peppermint tea and just sit. I try not to think of anything.
Clear Your Mind
This is by far the toughest for me but it has to be done. For that hour I try to think of NOTHING but the muscle group that is currently being focused on. I try to make sure that I’m not tensing in other areas of my body and I breathe. Very Deeply. I also try to visualize the nasty toxins leaving my body with every move.
Massage can be very detoxifying which is great but in order to take full advantage it, you have to drink lots of water to help your body flush out the impurities. I try to drink at least 16 oz as soon as I can. As I sit here, an hour afterward, I’m still drinking my H20. I don’t get them that often so I plan on getting all that I can out of my massage.
Ok, so there you have it. Hopefully, you’ll remember these little nuggets next time you get the chance. What do you think?
