Frequently Asked Questions about Massage
If I am sick with a cold, will getting a massage make me worse?
No. It helps by stimulating your Lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system.
Massage can help move phlegm blocked in the sinuses or chest, relieve headaches and body aches associated with coming down with a cold. Be sure to drink water after your session to flush out your system and keep you hydrated.
Are there any side effects from massage?
Most people just experience good side effects such as relaxation, release of tension and sometimes catching up on sleep! It is possible for people to feel light-headed or dizzy after a massage if they have not eaten anything or kept themselves hydrated beforehand. Alternatively, if your medical history includes low blood pressure or dizziness please let the practitioner know before your massage starts and they will be mindful of how long you are lying face down on the table. They will be sure to take care of you.
