It is also commonly used to relieve muscular tension and pain, relieve fatigue and weariness.

    It is important not to take a shower or bath during the hour following treatment. Shower or bath in cold water should be avoided for at least 24 hours after treatment.

    It is also important to keep all areas treated well covered and warm. The area must also be protected from wind exposure, including fans and air conditioning.
