Aftercare Advice

  • Increase the amount of water you drink for the first few days after the treatment. Aim to drink about 2 litres of water if possible, this can assist your body to flush out toxins that massage helps to release from your body.
  • Reduce your caffeine intake (tea, coffee etc)
  • Avoid alcohol and recreational drugs for 24 hours
  • Try to cut down on smoking
  • Make time to rest and relax
  • Avoid heat treatments (steam room, sauna etc) for at least 24 hours
  • After an aromatherapy treatment avoid sunbeds or the sun if certain oils have been used (photo toxicity) your therapist will advise you

Occasionally, you may experience something called an "Healing Crisis" after a treatment as the body starts to go through a self-healing process. This is very normal and it is a positive sign that your body has responded to the treatment and that it is starting to balance itself. Typical reactions include -

  • Frequent visits to the toilet
  • Runny nose and/or cough
  • Slight rash or spots as the skin rebalanced
  • Conditions that have been supressed may flare up temporarily before they heal
  • Sleepy and fatigued or deeply relaxed or difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams
  • Cold like symptoms
  • Increased sweating
  • Heightened emotions - high or low
  • Irritable
  • Energised
  • Increased thirst

These reactions are only temporary and they should clear within 24-48 hours. Should you have any concerns, feel free to contact us on 07507144403
