General Treatment Guidelines – Before & After
To experience the full benefit of Ayurvedic therapies, it is advised to incorporate the following guidelines as much as possible the day of treatment and the day after treatment.
Eat wholesome and fresh meals at regular times
Drink plenty of water (warm)
Allow adequate sleep and rest after the treatment
Take a warm shower in the evening after the treatment with minimal soap to allow oils to penetrate into the skin
Exposure to cold, wind and drafts or extreme weather
Caffeine, alcohol, smoking or stimulants
Foods that are difficult to digest, heavy, oily, processed or overly spicy
Over-exercise after the treatment in order to allow the body to rejuvenate
Staying up late at night (sleep by 10pm is encouraged)
Contraindications: Certain Ayurvedic therapies may not be advised if you are experiencing:
Acute menstrual cramps
Acute fever, nausea or vomiting
Over infected or broken skin
Please inform your practitioner if you are experiencing any of the above or if you have any allergies to specific nuts or seed oils.
On the day of therapy, it is best to bring clothes which you are comfortable getting oily, to change into after treatment. If travelling outdoors, ensure adequate clothing to stay warm. Avoid eating a full meal prior to the massage to optimize the therapeutic benefits – if you wish, you may eat a light snack such as soup, fruit or herbal tea beforehand.
