Massage can be a powerful experience; various systems within the body are stimulated which can sometimes result in various reactions during and after the treatment. If you are concerned at any time, please let me know.
During your treatment:
The following reactions are all quite normal, so please don't feel awkward or embarrassed. If you need anything (tissues, water etc.) or need to get up, just let me know:
Desire to sleep Go ahead, just bear in mind that I may need to wake you up
Flatulence Don't worry - it just means we've activated your digestive tract
Micturation (need to wee) - Have a break, your body is already eliminating toxins
Runny nose I have tissues, just ask
Feeling chilly If you get cold, let me know - I have blankets
Thirst Just ask for some water
Light Perspiration Let me know, it if gets worse, we may have to stop
If you start to experience any symptoms that make you feel uncomfortable, just let me know and we can take a break or stop the treatment.
