Traditional Massage
Massage works on all systems of the body and helps them function more effectively. Normally, this process of detoxification, rebalance and healing can cause some short term effects. These are perfectly normal after effects and are nothing to worry about, they will subside as the detoxification / healing process is completed and can include:

• Muscle soreness; due to deep tissue work done on areas of tension and knots, that wll help loosen the knots and promote blood flow. This in turn will expediate healing and help the muscles start to function normally again.
• Headaches
• Nausea
• Cold / flu like symptoms
• Fatigue
• Thirst
• Frequent urination
• Heightened emotional feelings
