MASSAGE  EFFECTS  &  AFTER CARE
 
Possible "After Effects" and "After Treatment"
 

The majority of people feel both relaxed and rejuvenated after massage.  However,some people may experience after affects of massage. These "after effects" are perfectly normal and should only last 12-18 hours.

You might call this a healing crisis. The healing crises is the result of massage making all body systems function more efficiently, speeding up waste removal and the elimination of toxins. Massage can also help rid an individual of negative deep-held emotions.

With regular treatments and as the body starts to heal and rebalance, these symptoms will subside.

Some of the typical contra-actions or "after effects" could include the following:

 

  • Tiredness due to release of toxins and the initiation of healing energies which require the body to rest.
  • Active bowels as accumulated toxins are released.
  • Changed sleep patterns with liklihood of deeper sleep.
  • Frequent urination due to the stimulation of the lymphatic system.
  • Heightened emotional state due to the positive release of deep-held feelings and emotions.
  • Muscular ache and/or headache due to the nerve fibers responding to the deep work that has taken place.
  • Headache, nausea, thirst, a sore throat, tiredness,
  • You may need to pass water more.
  • Contra actions put simply mean mild side effects usually can occur.
  •  Break out in spots (Temporarily). This is due to the movement of lymph and toxin elimination.
 
 
After Care
