The effects of massage are many!
Each and every style has its own possibilities.
This is where you can discover what most of them are.
Yet, on a personal level, something may happen to you following your treatment that is completely unique. Do NOT let this ring any alarm bells though!
As you will see, the effects of massage can be quite amazing.
The effects of life affect your body and that's a fact!
Anything that happens to you physically will affect your body, be it by accident or self infliction. This can be via your social activities or working environment. Even while you are sleeping, you can cause a physical reaction within your body!
Yet, when I say this, do you suppose I speak in terms of negative?! Please don’t.
The side effects of anything can also be very positive in nature.
One of the fundamental, universal laws says there is equal and opposite in all things!
After all, it’s only because you know of the one that you can experience the other.
So it is with any kind of massage.
Regardless of the type you go for, your body will most likely experience one, some but rarely all of the following effects of massage given here (see below for details). When you attend any treatment session, anywhere, do be sure to ask if there are any specific reactions you may experience that relate purely to that type of massage.
Systems of the Body Affected by Massage Treatment.
all these systems in mind when treatments are undertaken, it’s no
wonder you may feel some effects from massage!
So, without any further ado, lets take a look at what these differences are shall we?
The side effects of massage described below may be experienced anywhere from 12 to 48 hours post treatment.
PLEASE NOTE: The list given below is in general terms only and mainly consists of the side effects of massage treatments I deal with personally.
What I will most definitely say here is DON’T FIGHT what your body is trying to say
to you. If it wants to sleep, then sleep! If it wants to drink, or
eat, then do that (but make sure its quality rather than quantity that
I would ALWAYS advise post treatment that you drink a glass of pure, clear water . This helps in many ways to ease the effects of massage and begin the process of elimination of toxins (among other things!)
When you have invested your time and money in the pursuit of wellness, especially if this manifests itself beyond the physical, do you not think it wise to follow guidance? Be it from me, your therapist or even your own higher self.
I always tell my patients that it is best
to pay heed to what the body is communicating to you. If you can do
this then you will most certainly gain greater benefit from your
treatment and the money you have spent in trying to attain better
well-being will manifest itself to you at a greater level.
Fight the side effects of massage and you may even regret having had the treatment, which would be a crying shame. Not only that but you will not have reaped the full benefits of the massage, resulting in a less positive outcome. For more personal information about this always speak to your therapist who will obviously be far more knowledgeable about your personal situation.
The effects of massage from any specific type that you may encounter should, by rights, be told you by your own therapist when you first visit him/her. If this is not done, then please do ask. I promise, they don't bite!!
