Why Massage & Alcohol Do Not Mix

Does massage therapy after drinking alcohol mix? The answer is no!

Why should clients refrain from drinking alcohol before massage therapy?

Alcohol and massage therapy both have powerful effects on the body.

Alcohol has dehydrating effects, causing blood vessels to dilate, impairs cognitive reasoning, and weakens the immune system.

Massage therapy boosts the circulation by pushing the body’s lymph fluids and helping rid the body of excess fluids. It is important for clients to drink plenty of water after a massage.

Massage releases toxins from the muscles into the bloodstream, which can increase the negative effects of alcohol.

Massage increases a state of deep relaxation, lowers blood pressure and reduces stress.

Ultimately, alcohol cancels out the positive effects and benefits of massage therapy.

As a massage therapist, you are passionate about helping people by providing hands-on caregiving massage therapy that offers a balance between empathy, compassion, and professionalism.

Having comprehensive liability insurance for massage therapy also guarantees a level of confidence and is a best business practice.
