Self-Care

In most cases, the best thing to do following a session is to drink lots of water and rest.  The suggestions below are meant to assist you to get the most out of your treatments.

Walk, Drink Water and Take a Bath

Take a 15-20 minute walk on a flat level surface to flush your body's toxins and get your blood flow moving. Make sure to drink 10-12 glasses of pure water following your session.  This will aid in flushing the waste from your body.  Enjoying an Epsom Salt bath after your treatment can drastically reduce the chance of any post-treatment soreness.   

Take it Easy

Avoid performing any strenuous activity for 2-3 days following your treatment.  Resting reinforces the therapeutic effect of counterstrain, whereas stressing healing tissues too soon after treatment often encourages the body to revert back to dysfunction reintroducing pain and the symptoms you are seeking to alleviate.  This rest period is crucial and allows your body to process and rid itself of the metabolic waste, toxins and inflammation that have accumulated over time.
