Will I feel sore after my massage?
It is perfectly normal for your body to feel a little sore for a day or so especially after a deep tissue or therapeutic massage. During a massage session, your muscles get rubbed and manipulated to increase blood circulation in tight spots. The lining of the muscles is supposed to be smooth, and fluid. When muscles get tight, strained or knotted, it becomes more rigid and limits proper movement. During a massage, the therapist applies several techniques to break up adhesions in the tissues that can be either in superficial or in the deeper layers of your muscles. The deeper the adhesion the more session it will take for your muscles to regain its normal function. As your body becomes accustomed to regular massages, you’ll experience the next-day soreness less frequently, making the experience that much more pleasurable. You should always tell your massage therapist if you feel pain during the massage.
