How will I feel after my massage session?

Some people feel light headed after a massage as it helps to lower blood pressure.  Some feel giddy or loopy like they have taken drugs or alcohol.  Others feel energized or even sleepy.  Occasionally, some people may feel sore for the next 24-48 hours.  Some people feel this after even very light work; some people do not feel this at all even after very deep work.  It is hard to anticipate and predict, but if you do feel sore after a session, increasing your water intake may help drastically.  Most people feel better directly after a session while others feel sore for 24-48 hours and then feel drastically better.  If you have continued pain or soreness after a massage, please let your therapist know on your next visit as pressure, techniques, and/or time spent on an area may need to be adjusted to provide you with a more optimal session.
