How Long to Wait to Exercise after a Massage in Antibes?

The amount of time you should wait to exercise after a massage can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type and intensity of the massage, the areas of the body that were worked on, and your overall health and fitness level.

In general, it is recommended that you wait at least 24 hours before engaging in intense exercise after a massage.

This is because massage can increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which can leave your muscles feeling more relaxed and sensitive.

Engaging in intense exercise too soon after a massage can put additional stress on your muscles and potentially lead to injury.

However, light to moderate exercise, such as walking or gentle stretching, may be beneficial after a massage as it can help promote circulation and further loosen up any tight or sore muscles.

It’s also important to listen to your body and pay attention to how you feel after a massage.

If you experience any pain or discomfort during or after exercise, you may need to wait longer before engaging in intense physical activity.

It’s always a good idea to consult with your massage therapist or healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about post-massage exercise.
