Many massage patrons have been told to drink lots of water after their massage, but many do not know the reason why. It is because when someone gets a massage, their body begins to release toxins that are stored throughout the muscles.
The pressing movement and release during a massage help with the circulation of blood movement and the lymphatic system. Water assists the body in bringing oxygen, new blood, and nutrients to your muscles, organs, and tissue.
Massages also help to flush out waste products that are created by different cells each day. All of this helps to flush out the toxins that are built up in the lymphatic system. Getting rid of these impurities in your system can help to increase energy, aid in weight loss, and reduce inflammation.
