Self care is important after receiving a bodywork treatment. It should should start immediately after your healing bodywork session has come to completion. At this point, your therapist will allow you to transition slowly to life outside the treatment room. Depending on the time available, you may wish to remain on the treatment mat or table until you are ready to make preparations for your departure.
Your therapist will invite your feedback on the session and will make time to answer your questions. Final notes about the session may be taken as preparation for your next visit. You then will change back into your own clothes. Until you leave our treatment room, your therapist will assume care over you.
Once you leave our practice you may experience your physical, mental, and emotional self very differently. You may find it somewhat challenging to maintain physical balance, and may experience your range of movement and reach very differently. It is normal to feel mentally empty and to regain what you might normally consider a clear state of mind. Some clients experienced some nausea, vertigo, and slight losses of memory, and disorientation. Each of these effects will only be temporary if you don’t experience such conditions normally.
We suggest you take the following precautions to ensure a smooth transition from our treatment room back into your daily life.
