Nausea After A Massage
Posted 07 October 2007 - 02:58 PM
I started feeling nauseated near the end of the massage and felt sick and dizzy all the way home (thankfully I wasn't driving). I threw up a few times right after I got home and had a headache and felt queasy and sleepy for the rest of the day. I spent most of the day lying on the couch and couldn't eat much.
Could the massage have caused this and does anyone know why it would have. The massage felt great but it wasn't worth feeling hung over for the rest of the day.

If any kind of bug is brewing in you, it will surface during or after massage.
Do not get massage if you have a cold or feel questionable. Not saying that you did, it's just a general warning. Lots of toxins are released during massage.

I get them periodically for this reason. I also drink Yogi detox tea.

Alot of water could have helped with that. Also, taking some chlorella helps bind the toxins (especially heavy metals) so that they are able to be excreted rather than reabsorbed and redistributed (which is what causes those symptoms).

But from all of your responses, it sounds like it was a toxin issue. I will definitely have to hyper-hydrate if/when I have another massage. I wonder why my soon-to-be sister in law didn't feel sick like me. I've never thought I was a particularly toxic person. So if I have another massage and make sure I drink enough water, will I pee out some toxins.

Actually, everyone is pretty toxic...its the price we pay living on this planet. My Dr. told me that there were studies done where they took random people of the street for testing. The only requirement was that they had to be in good health (no obvious symptoms).
They were tested for a long list of toxic substances...heavy metals, pesticides, PCB, Dioxin, environmental toxins, etc. The results showed that *everyone* had these substances in their body...and in large amounts.
The people in the study were still healthy....meaning that so far their immune systems were dealing with the toxic load pretty well. Its usually when people are having chronic symptoms that their toxic burden is getting to be too high. Some of us are better at detoxing than others....genetics are a big factor in that.
If someone is developing more and more allergies/sensitivities...its a good indication that they are not handling the toxic load very well.
