Here’s why massage is the hangover remedy you’ve always wanted.
It’s completely natural. No need to take drugs like aspirin, which can thin the blood and tax your already overloaded liver.
Massage boosts your immune system. During a hangover, your body is full of toxins, and your liver, the organ responsible for breaking them down, just can’t keep up. Massage will help your lymphatic system clear your blood of all the poisons you put into it during the Holidays.
Hangovers mean headaches. A massage is a great way to increase circulation, which also pushes blood to the brain, easing pesky headaches caused by your hangover.
The only real cure for a hangover is time and rest. A massage helps your body relax and heal itself.
Remembering to hydrate before, during and after a night of drinking is always helpful.
So have fun but be careful & remember to book a massage with Shine On!
Light, relaxing massage can safely be given to people at all stages of cancer. Tumor or treatment sites should not be massaged to avoid discomfort or pressure on the affected area and underlying organs.
Some people worry that massage can spread cancer cells throughout the body via the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, organs and nodes through which lymphatic fluid (lymph) flows. It is part of the body’s immune system. Lymphatic circulation occurs naturally as we move.
Cancer may spread (metastasize) into the lymphatic system via the lymph nodes, or it may start in the lymphatic system itself. However, the circulation of lymph – from massage or other movement – does not cause cancer to spread. Researchers have shown that cancer develops and spreads because of changes to a cell’s DNA (genetic mutations) and other processes in the body.

We all deserve the chance to relax after a long week, and a beer (or three) followed by a soothing massage might sound like a perfect recipe for relaxation.
But if your daydreams of unwinding at home involve both a few stiff drinks and a massage therapy session, you should understand that massage therapists don’t approve of combining booze and massage.
While there are varying opinions on how long you should wait after drinking to get a massage, massage therapy experts agree that it’s not safe to massage a client when they’ve recently been under the influence.
Why can’t I get a massage right after drinking?
Why is it so problematic to get a massage after drinking? Alcohol, like massage, has a powerful effect on your body, and the two don’t mix together in a healthy manner.
Let’s dive in to the simple facts about the effects of both alcohol and massage on your body.
How massage affects your body
- Massage boosts circulation, pushing the body’s lymph fluid around and helping you to shed excess fluids more quickly. (This is why your therapist will encourage you to drink plenty of water after a massage.)
- Massage creates a state of deep relaxation, lowers your blood pressure, reduces levels of stress hormones like cortisol and increases pleasurable hormones like dopamine and serotonin in the body.
- Massage releases toxins from the muscles into the bloodstream, which can heighten the negative effects of alcohol.
How alcohol affects your body
- Alcohol, a diuretic, is well-known for its dehydrating effects, as anyone who’s ever had a hangover headache will tell you.
- Alcohol causes your blood vessels to dilate, moving the alcohol through your bloodstream and increasing your blood alcohol level.
- Alcohol impairs cognitive reasoning. Alcohol consumption can impair reflexes, limit motor control, and reduce coordination.
- Drinking too much weakens the body’s immune system, and a single event of binge-drinking can limit your body’s ability to prevent infections for up to 24 hours.
How massage interacts with alcohol
- Numbed senses. Alcohol and massage are both relaxing. But the deep relaxation of massage, combined with the numbing effect of alcohol, means that you may not be in touch with your body during your massage. This makes it difficult for both you and your massage therapist to judge the best level of pressure for your massage. You want to feel the massage, don’t you?
- Amplified drunkenness. Alcohol travels through your bloodstream. (We know, it doesn’t sound as much fun when we say it that way.) Massage increases circulation and flushes toxins from muscles, which means that alcohol both hits your bloodstream more quickly and remains there longer. Some massage therapists have seen customers become more drunk during a massage because of this amplification effect.
- Intensified hangovers. Both massage and alcohol can have a dehydrating effect. This doesn’t just make you thirstier – it can intensify hangover symptoms. (That said, a massage can help cure hangovers.)
- Canceled-out positive effects. Massage strengthens the body’s immune system, but drinking too much weakens the body’s immune system – meaning that you lose this important health benefit of massage, essentially canceling out the positive effect.
Best practices for massage and alcohol
Licensed massage therapists will typically refuse to work with a customer who is visibly intoxicated. While they will work with customers who have had a glass of wine but are not drunk, massage experts recommend that you wait at least four hours after drinking alcohol before getting a massage.
Long story short, alcohol and massage don’t mix well. Keep the beers as an after-massage treat for maximum massage and alcohol enjoyment.
