In general, there are no side effects to getting a massage…
First and most commonly, it’s very likely that your body is releasing toxins that have been stored up (because a massage is healthy and gets the blood flowing)… these toxins get back into your system and if they aren’t eliminated (via diet, sweating, or system cleanse), they can affect your system and you can feel sick. After a few times of this happening, it shouldn’t happen as much if at all (as the toxins are all worked out of your system), but taking a good cleanser and/or drinking more water will help get rid of that effect much faster.
[toggle title=”What if I realize I’ve drooled during the massage?”]
Many people fall into a peaceful slumber during the massage but when they wake up, they notice a pool of drool on the pillow or massage table. This is very common. It often happens when people are being massaged while lying face down on the massage table.
[toggle title=”What if I get an erection during the massage?”]
Some men don’t get massage therapy because they worry that they’ll get an erection. Or they get the massage, but are unable to relax during the massage because of this fear.But there is no reason to be embarrassed. It’s perfectly normal for men to get an erection during a non-sexual, therapeutic massage.
Gentle touch administered to any area of the body can activate the parasympathetic nervous system and cause a partial or full erection. Your massage therapist (male or female) understands this and will generally ignore it.
[toggle title=”I’m self-conscious about a certain part of my body and don’t want the massage therapist to see me. What can I do?”]
People are self-conscious for various reasons. Some of the more common concerns are:
• I’m overweight
• I have excessive hair growth on my body
• I’ve got acne on my face or back
• My feet are ugly• I have scars
Being self-conscious should never keep you from seeking health care, whether it’s visiting your doctor or seeing a massage therapist.
If you’re self-conscious about a certain part of your body, you can ask the massage therapist to avoid that area.
