Effects of the treatment
Immediately after a treatment you are likely to feel relaxed, calm and feeling better, physically and mentally and emotionally than when you arrived. Many people feel lighter and more energised after their session. You may also feel tired as the body can work quite hard physically and emotionally through a session without appearing to do so.
Everyone’s experience is different and you may find that on subsequent treatments you feel quite different according to the nature and depth of the treatment and how you feel on that day.
If you have been receiving a treatment for muscular or joint ailments then you may feel as if you are unbalanced or ache immediately after a treatment as your body is adjusting itself to the correct positions.
It is always a good idea to keep yourself hydrated and especially after having any treatment as this will increase the benefits of the treatment and reduce any side effects.
Occasionally, you may experience what is sometimes known as a “healing crisis” which is a positive healing process where symptoms actually become temporarily worse but pass within a couple of days. You may even experience cold or flu-like symptoms, feel achy, restless, have unusual dreams or just feel a little under the weather. This is part of the healing process and is a sign that your body is changing and healing.
