Depending on your health condition and needs, you may be given a particular treatment plan which might consist of hot and cold application therapy or trigger point therapy. Once the healing process of your body starts, you will be asked to perform more exercises and provided other types of treatment to help your body heal further. Massages are done on specific body parts which eventually intensify and go deeper in the body to heal your injured, inflamed, weak or painful muscles.
It is necessary to provide feedback to your therapist before, during and after every massage session. Also, make sure your therapist knows if you experience any type of pain, discomfort or distress. Your therapist will explain you the process and adjust the massaging techniques if required. Moreover, if you feel a sense of relief after certain massage techniques, inform your therapist about it. This will help your therapist deliver a session that assists your recovery.
