A few words of caution –
Here are a few cautionary words from our in-house experts. You must always remember these before getting ready for your next massage session.
- Always inform your massage therapist about your old injuries.
- Even if you are going back to the same therapist for the 100th time, do not forget to intimate them about your old and new pains.
- Arrive at the massage center well hydrated. You will need more fluids in your body to attain more mobility. Post-massage hydration will take care of itself.
- Eat healthy and light before the massage appointment.
- Always focus on your old injuries, mobility problems and definitely focus beyond your legs. Pay attention to your shoulder, arms and back as well for full mobility massages.
- A sports training massage can be a part of your training plan. So definitely do not expect a spa session treatment.
