What is a deep tissue massage and how does it differ from other types of massage therapy? In these videos, celebrity massage therapist Meagan Holub gives you the lowdown on what it's like to get a deep tissue massage and also teaches you how to give one to some lucky person in your life.
So there are a couple of things that you should do after a deep tissue massage. One, you should get off the table and get dressed. And as you get off the table be careful to watch your posture when you get up. A lot of people are overzealous and can be a little dizzy after a massage. So typically after you get off the table, I recommend just giving yourself a few moments to sort of collect yourself. You can feel a little bit spacey after a deep tissue massage. A lot of blood rushes to the area that you having worked on. So it's nice to just relax for a minute, have some water. There's actually a debate amongst the massage community about whether water is important for you to intake after a massage. But I think it can't hurt. it certainly can't hurt to have a glass of water. So have one, and just relax a little. Do a little bit of stretching, take a few moments before you get in the car. And enjoy your ride home.
