AROUND THE SPA AND USE OF THE FACILITIES:
We recommend that you follow three basic principles: Aways follow heat with cold experience, drink plenty of water when using the sauna and aroma steam rooms, stay in heat only for as long it feels comfortable.
POST TREATMENT AFTER CARE RECOMMENDATIONS:
- If you are feeling a little achy (in deep tissue massage after pain can happen 1-2 days after your massage), go for a light walk or take a warm sea salts bath.
- Experiencing pain after a massage is perfectly ok. It's very much like doing a workout. If the muscles aren't used to it, they often respond with some soreness.
- Try to take at least 15 minutes before you go back to work or drive anywhere. You are in a state of relaxation although you might not realise it. This means that you need to give yourself a bit of time to ease back into the normal flow of things.
- Drink water or herbal teas after your treatment. There are loads of toxins running around your system after a massage. By drinking a good bit of water you will help to flush them all out.
- Regular massage treatments are highly recommended, for maximum and long lasting benefits along with healthy living & diet and emotional wellness.
