  • Reach Out to Your Healthcare Provider

One of the first things to do before getting a massage is to contact your healthcare provider. Reaching out to your doctor is especially important if you have any underlying medical conditions. While massages are considered safe, it’s not recommended to get one if you suffer from a heart condition, infection, kidney failure, or if you have blood clots.

  • Stay Hydrated

Another important aspect of getting a massage is to always keep yourself plenty hydrated. One of the main goals of these massages is to detox your body while ensuring your lymph fluids move throughout your body. Making sure you stay properly hydrated is key for the best results. Typically, it’s recommended to drink around eight glasses of water the day before your massage while also staying plenty hydrated on the day of your massage.

  • Avoid or Limit Food on the Day of Your Massage

Receiving a massage on a full stomach makes it more difficult to experience the many benefits of these massages. On the other hand, completely avoiding or limiting your food intake on the day of the massage is highly recommended for the best results. Scheduling an appointment earlier in the day is also helpful if you do not want to wait all day without food.
