Water Intake

December 24, 2009

The definition of ‘drink plenty of water’ following a massage is what I request all my clients to do. A half ounce of water per pound of body weight, as suggested in the text is a lot of water but it does flush the body of toxins released from their massage. Personally I find it difficult to drink that much but it does promote frequent breaks from a desk job which in turn reduces muscle tension and stiffness. Increase water also helps improve one’s mental task abilities by avoiding dehydration and again mentally taking a break from a challenging mental task. I’ve been told if you don’t drink anything until you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated. So, eat, drink and be merry this holiday season, take alot of potty breaks to keep hydrated, clear your thinking, prevent stiff and tense muscles and…keep your blood sugar down to prevent diabetes or a diabetic spike.
