Hurts So Good
Hurts So Good: Why soreness after a massage isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Some people have soreness following therapeutic massage and others never do. The possibility of having sore muscles following a massage is more common with your very first massage. Soreness occurs because “NEW” things are happening to your muscles. They get kneaded, moved, squeezed.
All of this can release metabolic (body) wastes and other materials that are stored in your muscles and other soft tissues (skin, fat, and fascia.) These waste products are being flushed from the soft tissues. Massage stirs things up. This is not a bad thing but sometimes, for some people, massage can cause muscle soreness.
Each body and individual is different. That means that the therapist and YOU must direct the massage in the way that is most beneficial for you. You may also ice or heat those sore areas to help get rid of the tenderness. You will also enjoy more of the health benefits of massage if you can have a session more frequently. Most importantly, you will instantly feel the awesome benefits of therapeutic massage.
