At certain points during a Deep Tissue Massage, some may find there may be some mild some discomfort, however, it is important to communicate to the therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. It's important to drink a lot of water after a a massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. It's possible that you might feel some soreness the day after a deep tissue massage even if you do drink a lot of water. This means a lot of waste products were flushed out of the tissues. It should pass within a day or so. Though uncommon, mild bruising may occur with a Deep Tissue Massage and is more likely in older clients due to weakened capillary walls and thinner skin. Certain medications such as Blood Thinners, Dietary Supplements, and Corticosteroids, increase susceptibility to bruising. Please communicate with your massage therapist regarding any medications or health conditions.
