Neuromuscular Massage Therapy and Bodywork can be very relaxing, affecting all your body’s systems so give yourself a moment to reorient before slowly getting off the massage table. You may be slightly dizzy or disoriented but this will wear off once you get up and are moving around once again.
After a session, most people feel very relaxed. Many experience relief from aches and pains that have built up over months or years of tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience an increase in energy that can last for several days.
Although therapeutic massage provides immediate results, you may not feel them right away. Typically you will notice subtle changes including pain relief, increased mobility, or stress reduction.
If your pain is a result of an injury or accident, then you may experience “good” pain that evening or the following day. This is because we have addressed the soft tissues of the body that have been very tight and restricting along with making subtle structural body changes which will encourage musculoskeletal balance.
Please be sure to relay any positive or negative reactions that you may have with your therapist at your next session.
