You may get the odd post back to your question suggesting that these aftercare guidelines are erring on the side of caution. That there is not much danger of fading through sweat. I would just say that these are no more than anecdotal observations and you should take the guidelines seriously. We have treated professional athletes in the past... and they got exactly the same advice.
I appreciate that for a gym fanatic it becomes a serious part of your considerations.
Good luck. Ed.
I've received mixed messages around aftercare guidelines so hoping to get some direction from the forum. I recently complete my second session with my third session scheduled in about six weeks:
1) The leaflet handed out at the office was dated even referring to SMP as MHT. There are references to 'final treatment' which is confusing as I'm assuming the 'aftercare' guidelines apply EVERY time you have a session completed
2) The website aftercare guidelines state that light sweating is okay by day four and heavy sweating by day 10
My practitioioner advised that I shouldn't workout at the gym for 28 days after treatment - is this correct??? I'm looking to resume my normal body workout which consists over a 5 minute warm up on a bike followed by about 45 minutes of machine/free weights with medium intensity (I'm not a body builder however keep in shape through medium intensity exercise). Considering I went a baseball cap when working out, i have beads of sweat on my head but nothing compared to running a 5K run when the entire body sweats).
Looking for help and advice. Thanks in advance.
