Wouldn’t it be great to get massage every day? You could hold out until you win the lottery, or you could follow some simple steps to extend the benefits of your massage.
1) Stretch! Your RMT isn’t suggesting stretches just for the heck of it, we believe that they will help you to feel better, and keep your muscles looser for longer.
2) Move! You don’t have to start training for an “Iron Man” or anything, just start making exercise a part of your life. Start slow if you need to, but exercise helps. If you strengthen muscles that are weak, your body will be more in balance, and you will have less pain.
3) Relax! Stress is a huge factor for many people in contributing to muscle tension, if only you could extend that sleepy, dreamy post-massage feeling. Well you can try. There are many ways to reduce stress in our every day lives. Start with something simple like deep breathing, or meditation. Most importantly, find something that works for you and stick with it.
