Once again everyone is different but most people leave the session feeling somewhat disoriented and groggy. This will lift after a little while and you should be left feeling more relaxed and centered. Sometimes you will feel sleepy and relaxed for the rest of the day, other times you may feel energized and renewed. In the case of deep work and pain specific treatment you may feel a little sore the next day before you start to feel the real benefits of the work. This is completely normal and should not alarm you. It is part of the process of unwinding tension patterns and relieving chronic or acute pain. You should always be sure to drink plenty of water following a massage in order to keep your muscles hydrated and to flush out of your body toxins that were released during your massage.
