Massages are a wonderful stress reliever and a brilliant way to ease the pain in tired muscles which is what makes them one of our most popular spa treatments. We often gets questions about massages such as what to do before and how they can help with particular ailments. Here are some of the most common questions along with the answers.  

Is there anything I need to do to prepare myself for a massage?  

No, a massage isn’t a sports event so all you need to do is take some time to simply relax and enjoy the experience.   

What should I be doing after a massage?   

The main advice is to drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and make sure you wrap up warm if it’s cold outside.  

I have a stiff neck from working at my computer all day, will a massage help? 

While a massage may give some relief depending on the cause of the pain it is worth working on your posture whilst seated at your desk. It is also advisable to take regular breaks where you can get up and stretch.   

I have had surgery, should I have a massage?  

The best person to ask is your doctor. A lot will depend on what surgery you have had. Studies have shown that massages can be very good for patients after certain types of surgery and most notably cardiac surgery. Again, consult with your doctor in all cases.
