7 Ways to Extend the Benefits of Your Massage
1. Schedule Your Appointment Wisely
If you want to soak in the post-spa feel as long as it can, it is all about the timing. If you book a spa in the middle of a hectic day or week, the effect will fade quickly when you step back into chaos. So it’s best to book a session at the end of the day or over the weekend to soak it all in.

4. Create Your Own Spa at Home
When you head to your home, instead of switching on the TV or mobile, dim the lights and put on some soothing music to recreate the calming spa-like ambiance in your room. You can also diffuse some aromatic essential oils and unwind yourself with a book to set the mood.
5. It’s Self-Care Time!
Have a self-care ritual? Post-massage period is the best time to practice it as it will help you escape the stress. So take a nice long bubble bath, pamper your skin with face masks and ubtans, write in your journal or simply meditate. Whatever activity brings you joy.
