Tips for Preparing for Your Ashiatsu Massage
You have many choices for ashiatsu massage therapy in Mesa, depending on what kind of symptoms you are experiencing. For example, a light massage may be enough to help you relax and relieve some stress, while a deep-tissue massage may be necessary to relieve muscle soreness and knots caused by long-term stress and other physical maladies. Seeing a professional Mesa chiropractor in conjunction with a massage therapist can help you get the maximum benefits.
Ashiatsu massage is a popular therapy in Asia that is gaining traction in the United States. Ashiatsu massage involves the therapist walking on your back to provide the deepest massage possible. The therapist uses bars and other supports to vary the pressure applied in certain places on your back. Ashiatsu massage also targets specific acupuncture and pressure points along your back.
In addition to providing a deep massage, Ashiatsu therapy also helps your body to release a large amount of toxins that you may be storing in your tight muscles or connective tissue. These toxins can cause a number of physical ailments, such as chronic pain, as well as health problems such as digestive issues, fatigue and metabolic issues.
The best way to prepare for Ashiatsu massage is to drink plenty of water. You should drink even more water than the daily recommended amount. We recommend that clients drink up to 12 glasses of water per day for three days leading up to the massage. This will ensure that the body is properly hydrated and ready to release the toxins.
It is also very important that you drink plenty of water immediately following your massage. Drinking a lot of water will help your body flush out all the toxins that are released. If you don’t drink enough water, those toxins could be reabsorbed by your body, which can compound your health problems.
Drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water per day for the two days following your massage. Not only will the water help to flush out toxins, but it will also help to relieve the muscle soreness you may experience after such an intense massage.
If you follow these instructions, you will be able to reap the maximum benefits of Ashiatsu massage therapy. Our clients have told us that they notice an improvement in their sleep quality, their concentration, their ease of mobility, and their overall sense of well-being after they have Ashiatsu massage. With continued massage therapy, you may even find that you are able to wean off of some medications. (You should always work closely with your doctor when making any changes to your medication.)
