I apologize for the disagreement.

What may occur after treatment

Following any holistic or classic treatment, it is not unusual to experience contra-actions.
Those contra-actions occur after treatments that work in harmony with the body and aid healing. They are usually a cleansing reaction, typically seen as a speeding up of toxins elimination by your body.

Very often, following treatment, any ailment you may be suffering from may seem worse. This happens because in order to heal, the body must re-balance and throw off toxins. In many cases, a course of treatments is required in order to achieve positive results.

Other reactions to treatments may include:

  • Tiredness – due to the release of toxins and the release of healing energies, the body needs to rest to help the healing process.
  • Release of emotions – holistic treatments help to cleanse and clear the mind and the emotions. This may leave you feeling tearful and emotional. After this release, you will feel calmer and more at peace with yourself.
  • Aching and sore muscles – due to the release of toxins and the response of nerve endings to deep massage.

Contra-actions usually develop within a few hours of the treatment and last for no more than two or three days. With regular treatments and as a body starts to heal and re-balance, these after-effects will diminish.

If any of the above-mentioned contra-actions persist, you should consult your GP.
