Wait to Jump

Posted on March 7th, 2014 by Shari´ Parks

This post celebrates my 100th blog. I sure didn’t expect to keep going after my first blog back on April 9, 2012 but here we are 100 post later.

So, this week I’m going to talk about post massage tips. If you’ve been to my studio you’ve heard me give this suggestion. The end of a massage is one, always comes too soon and two, leaves you in a fog and maybe sleepy. Right after the therapist performs the closing of the session you know it’s coming. The closing of the session can be compressions of the body or a head hold. Whatever it might be you know the session will soon end. After I thank my clients I advise them to take their time getting up off the table. We do this for a number of reasons. One being that raising your head too quickly after a lengthy therapeutic session can cause dizziness. I tell my clients to take their time getting dressed too. Dress leisurely. There is no need to rush to get your clothes back on and hurry out the door. Be aware that because of an elevated metabolism, clients often need to visit the restroom after their massages.

If you haven’t practiced these suggestions before try it out. You will do your body and mind a great service. Wait to jump. There will be many opportunities to do that after you’ve left the wellness center.
