Massages have a tremendous amount of health benefits and they are a wonderful tool to help you relax, but if you can only afford to get one every once in a while you need to learn how to make the most of out it. The following is a list of the top ten tips on how to make the most of your massage from our day spa in Nashua:

  1. Drink plenty of water. Lots of toxins are released during your massage; drinking lots of water will help to flush those toxins out of your system.
  2. Arrive at your massage clinic in Nashua on time. If you are rushed or frenzied when you get to the clinic, it will take you longer to unwind and relax.
  3. Don’t eat right before your massage –give yourself time to digest your food completely.
  4. Less clothes means less obstacles for your massage therapist, however you still want to be comfortable. Wear as little as you can while still feeling at ease.
  5. Communicate with your therapist! Discuss your allergies, concerns or music preferences. Be sure to give feedback on any discomfort that you feel.
  6. Don’t forget to breathe. Breathing aids in relaxation and helps your body to relieve tension.
  7. Relax your muscles. It is counterproductive to tense up your muscles during a massage.
  8. Keep your mind still. It can be difficult to quiet a busy mind, but it is essential for relaxation. Try focusing on your breathe or the sensations of your massage.
  9. Recover at your own pace. Take your time and get up slowly. Getting up too quickly can make you feel dizzy or lightheaded.
  10. Take it easy for the day. Stretch out the relaxation throughout your day by taking a bath, eating a light meal or taking a nap.
