After your treatment you may experience some of the symptoms below for a few days, these symptoms are quite normal and are a sign that the treatment is working:

  • Cold like symptoms.
  • Sleepy and fatigued or deeply relaxed.
  • Energised.
  • Irritable.
  • Increased thirst.
  • Temporary worsening of symptoms.
  • Headache/dizziness – this is due to the improved circulation and is only temporary.
  • Soreness and tenderness in the areas that have been worked on may last 2-3 days.
  • Improved sleep.

The following should be carried out:

  • Drink plenty of still water for the next 24 hours, this will remove toxins that are released during massage.
  • Refrain from drinking alcohol, caffeine and hot spicy food for at least 12 hours.
  • Rest is necessary in repairing the body so make sure you get plenty of it.
  • Stretch every morning and evening. Make sure to take stretches during the day if you have sedentary occupation and before and after exercising.
  • Avoid heat treatments for at lest 24 hours.
  • Don’t stand or sit in the same position for long periods – especially cross-legged or hunched over a computer. The body likes movement and cannot cope will in a fixed position.
  • If kinesiology taping has been used keep it on for a few days or until it becomes itchy or uncomfortable. In some cases it can cause skin irritation. It is okay to get the tape wet during a shower.
  • Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for the rest of the day.
