Let’s talk home-care and what every client should do post massage. We’ve interviewed some of the industry leading massage therapists at The Flowering Almond Spa to offer you some tips on how to ease muscles tension, calm joint pain, and extend your relaxation! Here are some of our favorite tips: “A nice stretch session is perfect post massage” says Danielle Lambert, Lead Massage Therapist. “Use a tennis ball on your glutes! This will release tension in the hips and lower back. It can be done on the floor, or if too intense, in the bed.” -Shari Rivers, Massage Therapist “Focus on your breathing by breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth, thinking about filling the lungs fully and fully exhaling. You’ll be bringing oxygen into your muscles and releasing any stress and pain out of the body on the exhale.” -Brooke Martin, Lead Esthetician and Massage Therapist “Drink extra water to keep your muscles hydrated and pliable until your next massage treatment.” -Suzanne Clugston, Massage Therapist “Never underestimate the power of a hot epsom salt bath!” -Evie Leitmeyer, Massage Therapist “It’s important for clients to use a scent or aromatherapy at home that relaxes them. Room sprays are actually perfect for promoting relaxation!” -Sharon Shockley, Massage Therapist “For massage clients who work out regularly I always recommend stretching 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after each workout.” -Sony Bayona, Massage Therapist “Lemon water to detox and muscle repair balms are the best!!!!!!!” -Kayla Lockett “My favorite home care recommendation is to continue relaxing at home by dimming your lights, adding a few drops of essential oil to your diffuser, and snuggling up with a good book. Let the relaxation from your massage flow into the rest of your day!” -Erica Little Remember to enjoy these home care tips between your monthly massage treatments, they truly make a wonderful difference for your mind and body.
