Water, Water, & More Water

Posted: December 1st, 2020

As we are going into the cooler months, we tend to forget to drink water because we are not sweating as much. Just like in the hot summer months, you can still get dehydrated in the winter season as well. It is vital to stay hydrated after getting a massage. 

Following your massage service, your therapist will remind you to drink plenty of water. So why is drinking water immediately after your massage or even a facial so important?

First of all, water helps purify your kidneys, which are the organs that help process key nutrients and toxins. Water flushes the free radicals that are released during a massage and also oxygenates our cells. Hydrating after a massage can also aid in preventing excessive soreness.

What happens when you don't drink enough water after your massage service?

When your head, neck and shoulders have been massaged, it stimulates the lymphatic system, which drives out toxins. Sometimes if you don't drink enough water, you can experience a slight headache after your service. 

As a matter of fact, drinking water before your massage is just as important! This will help your kidneys in releasing harmful toxins as they work their way out of your system in a healthy, productive manner. Water also helps electrolytes replenish your immune system.

Now you are ready for your next massage! So the next time your therapist offers you a water cup after your service, don't hesitate to accept it!
