Your Health Matters – Is bruising after a Deep Tissue Massage normal?

Bill: Is bruising after deep tissue massage normal? No. However, if you have been
worked too hard, you can have post-treatment bruising. Or if your body is…

Steve: Susceptible.

Bill: Yeah, if you are susceptible. If you are an older person.

Steve: Blood thinners. You might be on aspirin.

Bill: If you’re on blood thinners or if you haven’t exercised for a very long time. You’ve had Type 2 Diabetes for a long time.

Steve: Or if you’re overweight. Often you can bruise easily.

Bill: You may be more susceptible to bruising after deep tissue work. So a good massage therapist or myotherapist or someone who’s doing soft tissue work with you should take a good medical history to see whether that could be a problem for you and work around that.
