I've had several massages, all after and before different things, and now wonder if there's any way to best reap the rewards... Should I eat something prior, 1-2 hrs? Is an empty stomach preferred? Should I sleep after it or eat a healthy meal? Etc. Thanks.
Water is the best thing. When you get a massage it helps flush out your toxins that build up in your muscles. A lot of tension comes from those toxins and when the tension is worked out the toxins need to be flushed out. So I would advise to drink water before and after you have a massage.
