Is it normal to have soreness after a massage?

Yes, it can be normal after a deep massage. By loosening knots, it can create microtrauma and inflammation, and then allow the muscle fibers to realign. Discomfort rarely lasts more than 48 hours.

Can I train after a massage?

As a general rule, it is not recommended to do an intense physical workout right after a massage, as it could compromise the benefits of the massage and increase the risk of injury.
