Aftercare

After the treatment

If possible, try to give yourself some space and quiet time after a session. This will help to aid the healing process and hence can maximise the benefit from the treatments you have received.

There is no standard way of how you should feel after a treatment. Most people, most of the time, will feel calm and relaxed but, it is as well common, to experience a variety of reactions following a treatment. These are often called healing crisis or after reactions and are considered normal, as the body reacts to the treatment, removing and eliminating toxins and waste.

Some of the possible after affects or symptoms you may experience could be:

  • Tiredness and changed sleep patterns

  • Feeling emotional

  • Feeling light headed

  • Headaches might shift, start or disappear

  • Increased perspiration, skin reactions

  • Stuffy, blocked or runny nose or cold like symptoms

  • Increased thirst, urination or bowel movement

  • Temporary worsening of symptoms

  • General aches and pains

 

These reactions are considered being normal and well documented. They show that toxins are being expelled from the body in an attempt to rebalance and cleanse. If you have any questions after a treatment, please feel free to contact me. Should that not be possible or should you be concerned about your symptoms, please contact your GP or 111.

 

After each treatment, please ensure that you drink plenty of water to help your body flush out toxins released during the treatment.

Aftercare

  • Have frequent sips of water over the next 24 hours following a treatment – This can assist your body to flush out toxins

  • Avoid smoking, alcohol and other stimulants such as tea and coffee for the rest of the day.

  • If  possible avoid eating a heavy meal for a couple of hours after your treatment as blood will be diverted to the digestive system rather than carrying oxygen and nutrients to other parts of the body and getting rid of waste.

  • Relax and be kind to yourself.

  • Don’t over exercise, give your body a chance to recoup. Try to implement a gentle and regular exercise programme on a daily basis.

  • Look into finding something that helps you to relax and care for yourself in a gentle and loving way (yoga, meditation, gardening, walks, me-time, receiving treatments, etc)
