I like to advise clients after having a massage with black pepper that to continue the benefits it’s advisable to use after exercise in a bath, 5 drops into a full bath should see your muscles thanking you for that consideration and the next day you will find noticeable ease of movement.
I always carry out a consultation before any treatment and identify your treatment aims at Sanity, I’m also now stocking black pepper at £10 for 10 ml (20 drops equals 1 ml) so will last you a good while, also Eve Taylor have created an excellent muscle rub that contains black pepper and ginger which is blended with Aloe Vera and is an amazing 75ml product to keep in your training bag for emergencies, this is also stocked at Sanity and retails at £7.
