Do you bruise from a massage?

I have never had one before, but got a gift cert for Christmas, and went to get a massage yesterday, so today my ENTIRE BACK is full of bruises. Is that normal??

  • deep tissue massages can leave bruises. Usually it won't, but if there are trouble areas they work on, it can cuase some bruising.

  • No, it's not normal. What kind of massage did you get? I know some are more "rough" than others. Did it hurt while they were doing it? Maybe you just bruise easily?

  • I get massage therapy every 2 weeks, it is deep massage and so far I have not had any bruising.Sometimes it may feel like I am but it is because she relaxed some of the tight muscles.
