Most people experience no side effects or adverse reactions after a massage, but there are some potential side effects that some people may experience. These include:
1. Soreness: It is common to experience some soreness or stiffness after a deep tissue massage or if the therapist has worked on specific areas of tension or pain. 2. Fatigue: Some people may feel more tired than usual after a massage, particularly if they were very relaxed during the session. 3. Nausea: In rare cases, some people may experience nausea or dizziness after a massage. This may be due to the release of toxins or the stimulation of the vagus nerve.
These side effects are generally mild and should subside within a day or two. If you experience any severe or persistent symptoms after a massage, such as intense pain or swelling, you should contact your healthcare provider or massage therapist for further advice.
