This is a great article explaining how massage therapy does create that inflammation response, and can leave you a little sore sometimes, especially after a deep tissue massage. Sometimes you need more than one session, and rushing results can leave you in pain. Massage therapy does not have to hurt to benefit you, so please speak up if something is uncomfortable. We can get the results without the pain during and after your massage by adjusting technique, working slower, and allowing the treatment of a specific issue to take multiple sessions when needed. It’s best to get regular massages, so that your body stays nice and relaxed, and we can work out the tension as it builds. Check out this article for more info on why we might feel sore after a massage the next day.
