often your body will go through a process of reorganization for
a few days. It is best to take it easy during this time and avoid

often experience relief of symptoms within a few sessions. Some
conditions can require more visits, but most, including back pain,

case, some people may initially experience their symptoms more acutely.

completes itself, clients can expect not only relief from their
original symptoms, but an overall deeper feeling of well-being.
