I had a very good massage the first time, but had so much more pain after, I did not want another. In Mar. of 2017 I had another 30.min. but from a different person and it was a weak massage and did absolutely nothing for me. I am allergic to pain medications after surgery I hallucinated on several different ones and couldn't get my breath on one pain medication. The Dr. then prescribed Tylenol extra strength after surgery which did help.
