How Will I Feel After a Massage Session?

How Will I Feel After a Massage Session?

While results vary, here are some ideas of what to expect

  • Most people report feeling very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity.
  • After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, which can last for days, due to the body's increased ability to use oxygen.
  • Since toxins are released from our soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water and have an epsom salt bath (2 cups minimum are needed)  following your massage.
