How to prepare for your session

  • An hour before your massage, ensure you're well hydrated and drink a glass of water if needed.  
  • If you're able to do so, warm your muscles up before the session by taking a hot bath, soaking in Ouray Hot Springs, or taking a gentle 10-15 minutes stroll.
  • After your massage, be sure to avoid alcohol or any sugary drinks and continue to hydrate and flush the body with plenty of water.
