After care advice and what may occur after treatment?

During or following a treatment you may experience emotions that you have been bottling up or symptoms relating to illness or disease that may have been suppressed with medication. This healing crisis (a contra-action) is a normal, positive effect, especially if you have never had a treatment before or if your body is very stressed. Massage helps all body systems to function more efficiently, speeding up waste removal and the elimination of toxins as well as getting rid of negative deep-held emotions. With regular treatments and as a body starts to heal and re-balance, these after-effects will diminish.

Typical contra-actions may include:

  • Tiredness due to release of toxins encouraged by the treatment and the initiation of healing energies, which require the body to rest
  • Muscular ache and/or headaches the nerve fibres responding to the deep work that has been undertaken during treatment
  • Heightened emotional state due to the positive release of deep-held feelings and emotions
  • Frequent urination due to stimulation of the lymphatic system
  • Changed sleep patterns you can fall asleep during the treatment, a state of relaxation may help you sleep better
  • Active bowels body systems, including the digestive one, will work better
  • Spots may occur released toxins and hormones may surface through the skin, especially if you previously suppressed your skin condition

Any contra-action symptoms you may experience are absolutely normal and will subside within 24 hours.

Remember prevention is better than cure. Once you show signs of improvement Mariana will continue to work with you to maintain harmony and balance. Regular treatments will help to prevent future stress accumulating.
