Why Getting a Massage after Drinking is Bad for you

Alcohol and Massage | www.drinks.ng

Getting an oily body massage is as healthy as it is stress-relieving, but it is not advisable to hit the massage table the morning after drinking.

Massages leave you dehydrated, which is why the masseuse offers a glass of water after a session. Thus getting a massage when the alcohol in your body is already making you thirsty is not a safe bet.

So why is getting a massage after drinking alcohol bad?

According to Dennis Frymire, a therapist at Massage Envy in Chicago, “Massage moves fluids in the body.”

“If you are dehydrated, that is only going to heighten the feeling of dehydration after.”

This means that getting a massage after drinking will only intensify any symptom of being hungover that might surface.

“I will have someone come in, and they will say that they have been drinking the night before and that they are hung over,” he said.

“You may feel great during the massage, but it may heighten your feelings of being hung over after the massage,” Frymire said.

Especially steer clear of something like a deep-tissue massage.

“After you get a deep-tissue massage, there’s always a bit of muscle soreness,” he said. “That’s natural.”

However, if you were intoxicated the night before, the soreness will only feel worse.

So as much as a massage is worth having, do well not to fill your body with booze few hours before it. Just like massages, drinking should be an enjoyable activity. You do not want to walk away with an uncomfortable experience after.

Never forget that moderate drinking will help your body get the best benefits from the liquor you are drinking.

Under North Carolina’s New Senate Bill, Americans Can Order Alcoholic Drinks on Sunday Mornings

Under North Carolina's New Senate Bill, Americans Can Order Alcoholic Drinks on Sunday Mornings | drinks.ng

A bipartisan bill filed this week in the North Carolina Senate would change one of North Carolina’s best-known blue laws: the ban on alcohol sales before noon on Sundays. Senate Bill 155 is sponsored by Republican Sen. Rick Gunn of Burlington, Senate Minority Leader Dan Blue, a Raleigh Democrat, and Republican Sen. Kathy Harrington of Gastonia.

This new bill won’t allow shoppers buy beer and wine at grocery stores and other retail outlets on Sunday mornings, but it will give restaurants more hours to serve alcoholic beverages during brunch. Rather than waiting until noon to start serving mimosas and other drinks, restaurants could begin serving at 10am if the new bill passes and local counties and cities allow the change within their boundaries.

The North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association is supporting the proposal. “This brunch bill will allow our North Carolina restaurants and hotels to meet their guest’s needs.” president and CEO Lynn Minges said on Wednesday. “With 55 million visitors to our state every year, this bill will be good for tourism and hospitality. The local ‘opt in’ provision is a new approach. We believe a number of counties will want this new option for their citizens and guests.”

On the opposing side, Rev. Mark Creech, director of the conservative Christian Action League, argues that adding hours to alcoholic beverage sales leads to an increase in alcohol-related car accidents and other public health problems.“We certainly don’t need to be adding additional hours to the sales of liquor,” Creech said Wednesday. “This bill is asking for more social harm.”

The ban on Sunday morning alcohol sales stems from an effort to limit drinking during hours when churches are in session. “I think bills like Sen. Gunn’s are a sign of the times, and they show us that there’s not the same respect among some lawmakers and some business interests for religious principles as there has been in the past.” Creech said.

The other provisions of Senate Bill 155 will loosen the regulations governing North Carolina’s growing craft distillery industry. Most notably, distilleries will be able to get a permit to offer free liquor tastings at special events such as street festivals, trade shows and agricultural festivals. Distillers could also offer tastings at ABC stores. Craft distillers are seeking the changes to give them more opportunities to market their products; local breweries and wineries already offer tastings at special events.

Creech, however, said he’s concerned about the provision that would allow free tastings inside state-run ABC stores. He revealed that the ABC system was created to regulate liquor sales, rather than to promote the products.“This particular measure creates a paradigm shift allowing our ABC stores to be involved in active marketing and promoting the sale of spirits,” he said.
