Most feel people feel relaxed. Some experience freedom from longterm aches and pains developed from tension, repetitive activity or injury. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity that can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water before and after your session. If your session is a deep tissue, you may want to try an Epsom salt bath if you start to get a little sore. It can feel like your first day at the gym, but only lasts a day or two depending on how well you hydrate and do recommended stretches that your therapist may give you.
