Re: bruising after deep massage

Hi,

I used to be an Aromatherapist in Sports Massage.

Did the therapist go through a Consultation with you beforehand ? Some don't, which I believe is wrong and some rush through without taking much care.

They should have asked if you bruised easily. Was you aware that you bruise easily? I'm not saying it's anything to worry about, it's just that some people do so more than others. I do too.

I wouldn't have thought there's much harm done, only of course you will ache for afew days.

It's best that when you next go for something like this, to make the therapist aware of just how much you do bruise.

Some Therapists can be quite big and obviously much stronger, I'm small and as far as i'm aware this never happened to any clients of mine, but I know that it can be quite common if the pressure was intense.

Hoping you feel better soon.

Re: bruising after deep massage

On your buttocks and around your ribs ? Was they massaging your ribs and buttocks ?

Or do you mean your ribs ache because of the pressure they were applying on your back ? And with your buttocks, I hope they wasn't massaging your entire butt ! Because all this would be wrong.

Re: bruising after deep massage

Not the front of your ribs then ? Because this would be pretty worrying.
That's what I was confused about.

Have no idea why she thought you had a dislocation in your ribs (because this would be impossible), but hey ... maybe she meant a knot within the back/rib area.

Have you thought that maybe it could be possible you have a hair line fracture in your rib area caused by something you've done? Or it could be just a knotted muscle, caused by physical stress.

I don't know just trying to understand that's all.

Re: bruising after deep massage

Hi,

I also can't handle deep tissue massages. I have never bruised from one but I actually get ill from all the toxins that are released and get horrendous headaches. I will say while getting the deep tissue it feels very good as they are getting rid of all the built up tension but then the pain afterwards (next day) just isn't worth it. Just so you know, I also have never had my upper buttocks massaged. Guess every therapist is different though. Hope you feel better soon.

Laura

I had a massage once and the lady massaged me right on my bum cheek to try and help my legs at the time
