Everyone's body is unique. Some people become rejuvenated right after a massage session, and for some, it takes a couple of days for the massage benefits to be felt.
In general, our body needs about 48 hours after the massage to activate and work through problem areas. If you experience slight discomfort or pain, it is a sign that the massage is working.
If unbearable pain persists over 48 hours, consult your massage therapist or a doctor.
It depends on your body condition. If you suffer from tightness, fatigue, or occasional insomnia, once a week is recommended, and then after the condition gets better, once in 10 days or once in 2 week is suggested for maintenance.

Reflexology has been commonly used since ancient time in China and Egypt. By stimulating your feet, blood circulation is improved while toxin is released. The result is improving brain, internal functions, and the immune system. Unlike medications, there are no side effects.
