There are three important points in time after having received a Thai Massage session: the moment after, the morning after, and the many after.
First we have the immediate response after a Thai Massage session—the moment after. Then the three to five days following the session, which I call the morning after, and finally the long term effects when receiving Thai Massage regularly— the many after.
The immediate response, the moment after, is often somewhat like being fully energized, feeling light, refreshed or—feeling relaxed, released, relieved, and sometimes very tired, just wanting to take a nap. And often, after a first time Thai Massage session also—amazement, bewilderment. But although these are all significant impressions, none predict too much about the days to come.
Usually, the morning after, the receiver has had a very good night’s sleep. I’ve seldom seen otherwise, but the opposite can be the case also. In the following days different things may happen: some people start to feel very tired or feel muscle soreness, like having done some sports, workout. Some get diarrhea or feel weak, say… detox issues, very tired. Some have headaches.
Others immediately feel mentally more clear and the body feels in good shape. And some who suffered from severe physical problems may experience significant relieve. But sometimes also it takes more than a week to get some kind of physical and mental balance anew.
The many after is quite a different subject. It’s the result of regularly receiving Thai Massage which opens up the possibility to be structurally relieved of physical, mental and emotional blockages and tensions. It’s physical and energetic work that can support the body’s self-healing and regeneration processes to start functioning more natural, more optimal.
In general, receiving Thai Massage regularly could make one effectively experience improved balance, vitality and resilience in everyday life.
You see, the morning after is simply the morning after and shouldn’t be judged too strictly or taken to seriously. Nevertheless, it can be the beginning of a whole new start—a new life. It was to me.
