Do you know how you will feel after massage therapy?
People usually think after a massage they will feel much more relieved, and the pain will disappear instantly and that could be true, but in many cases the sharpest pain will come after therapy.
What does it happen after massage therapy?
When a person gets a massage, his muscles are manipulated and stretched by the therapist, the fibers of the muscle react to this stimulus, both relaxing and relieving tension, as well as inflaming, so the posterior sensation could be painful.
