Aftercare Advice

Holistic therapy treatments are a very powerful way of detoxifying the body, boosting the immune system and stimulating the body’s energetic systems. The Holistic Team based in Cheltenham recommend following this aftercare advice to gain maximum benefit from the treatments.

It is recommended that you take care of yourself in the following ways…

Increase the amount of water you drink for the few days after the treatment. (Aim to drink about 2 litres of water if possible. (This can assist your body to flush out toxins that massage helps to release from your body).Reduce your caffeine intake (coffee, tea, colas)

Avoid alcohol and recreational drugs for 24 hours
spacer Try to cut down on smoking
spacer Make time to rest and relax
spacer Avoid heat treatments (steam room, sauna etc) for at least 24 hours.
spacer After an aromatherapy treatment avoid sun beds or the sun if certain oils have been used (photo toxicity) your therapist will advise you.

Occasionally, you may experience something called a “Healing Crisis” after a treatment as the body starts to go through a self-healing process.  This is very normal and it is a positive sign that your body has responded to the treatment and that it is starting to balance itself. Typical reactions include…

spacer Frequent visits to the toilet
spacer Runny nose and/or cough
spacer Slight rash or spots as the skin rebalances
spacer Conditions that have been suppressed may flare up temporarily before they heal
spacer Sleepy & fatigued or deeply relaxed or difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams.
spacer Cold like symptoms
spacer Increased sweating
spacer Heightened emotions – high or low
spacer Irritable
spacer Energised
spacer Increased thirst

These reactions are only temporary and they should clear within 24-48 hours.
