Generally, I begin the massage with the client face-down. This allows me to start in one of the most troublesome areas - the back and neck.
Sometimes, after a particularly intense session, a client will feel as though they had a good workout for the next day or two. At no point should there be additional pain.
Occasionally, especially after the first session, clients feel so good that they are tempted to go out and do more than their body is ready to do. Please do NOT do this. It takes several days and perhaps a few more sessions for their body to complete the repairs to their muscles the massage has helped start.
