If you’re interested in getting a naughty Nuru massage, there are a couple of things you need to know before sliding onto that Nuru mat. Nuru’s aren’t a walk in the park- in fact, they’re very demanding on the body, which is its crucial to take specific steps both before and after a session. The positivists of a Nuru are often long lasting, but this is only possible when clients follow strict instructions. If you want to get your money’s worth, here’s what you need to do after your Nuru massage:
Have a snack!
Feeling a little peckish after your morning workout? That’s normal, most people do. But you’ll feel the exact same way after your Nuru, believe it or not. Nuru massages speed up your bodily functions, one of which happens to be the digestive system. Most people find that after any type of massage, they feel light heated and sick, and the main reason for this is because their body requires an energy boost. But it’s a great excuse to have a post-massage snack! Then again, don’t try and get around this by having a large meal before you session is due to start- you’ll regret it, seriously. Having a gorgeous masseuse slide and grind all over you is incredible, but not with a belly full of food. Have a light snack beforehand and then do the same after your session- it’s definitely worth trying.
Drink plenty of water
So, your massage is over and you’re feeling crazy relaxed. You’ll probably want to pick up a latte from Starbucks, read a newspaper and then head out for the day. But that’s literally the worst thing you could do! Experiencing a Nuru massage will have the same effect on your body as a workout would in terms of water loss, so re-hydrating your body is extremely important. Stimulating the muscles increases circulation of the lymphatic system and blood, but to do so, the blood needs a regular supply of water to carry oxygen around the body. The lymphatic system is responsible for ridding the body of toxins, so when it’s starved of water, it becomes lethargic and ineffective. This is what leads to a build-up of toxins, aches, pains and fatigue. Commonly, people use the toilet more frequently after a Nuru massage because the lymphatic system is banishing toxins through urine. This is normal, but the water must be replaced! So basically, if you’re not a regular water drinker but you’re getting a Nuru, you better pick up a Volvic on your way!
Welcome your emotions
If you’ve ever experienced a Nuru massage before, you’ll know that it’s like taking a trip to emotion-lane. The body and mind are connected, so when your body relaxes, so does your mind. Ever heard the saying, ‘opening of the floodgates’? Well, for a lot of people who’ve experienced Nuru massages before, this term happens to be very accurate. Whilst you’ll probably feel energised, elated and peaceful, you might find yourself filling up with tears as well. Stress is an incredibly powerful thing, and can impact us in more ways than we could ever being to understand. Stress, emotions and hormones all manifest themselves in our bodies, so when they mind is free, so are these feelings. But it’s important to remember that as well as being completely normal, emotional releases are actually really good for you, and this is exactly why Nuru massages are renowned for having long-lasting benefits. Not only are they insanely pleasurable, but they’re also therapeutic, and might be just what you need- even if you don’t know it yet!
Watch your body’s reaction
We’ve touched on this a little bit already, but massages are full body workouts, even if it doesn’t seem like it. Most people find that their muscles are a little sore after a Nuru massage, and that’s because they’ve been stretched, kneaded and exercised. When muscles get overly tight for long periods of time, it restricts the blood vessels in that particular area, preventing toxins from being flushed out of the system. When the muscles are massaged and relax, releasing tension can leave you feeling tender (just like after a workout), but it normally eases off after a day. In some cases, however, soreness can last a couple of days, and this is usually as a result of the masseuse pushing your body too far. If this is the case, vocalise this to your masseuse for your next session so that she is able to tailor the massage to one that is more suited to your limits. Similarly, if you’ve never had a massage before or haven’t had one for a while, signing up for a couple of sessions, rather than one sporadic appointment is often more effective for the body as a whole. If you are sore, it’s probably because you had more tension in your muscles to be released; therefore each session will be less uncomfortable. Several sessions with the same masseuse will give you the best results- but more importantly, it’s a great excuse to go back for more!
