Know how we were all told about having to drink water after a massage to get rid of lactic acid and other metabolic waste from the massage?

Well, scrub that out of your brain. It's wrong.

There has been research that shows it's wrong and here's a good article on the flushing out toxin myth

This article is by Eric Grant and the guy is a great source on information on all sorts of topics got to do with massage.Here is a list of his other articles

Happy reading, everyone!
