Are you injuring yourself with massage therapy?


Massage therapy is such a pleasure experience. Swedish research shows that hand massage can stimulate oxytocin secretion. This hormone helps to reduce pressure, eliminate fear and reduce pain.

However, did you know many people injured their body with massage? Remember these precautions before going for massage therapy.


Who's your masseur?

A doctor said one of his patients suffered from vertebra fracture. Actually, a masseur accidentally injured his back bone during a massage therapy!

Usually the lumbar vertebra complaint is also accompanied with osteoporosis. Once we met a patient who had been wrongly massaged. Later, he suffered from paralysis.

From these cases, you know you must be careful in choosing the right masseur. Apart from that, those with cardiovascular diseases must be careful as massage may cause stroke.


Proper Pressure

"It's not that if you feel more pain, it's more effective", said Juan Wen Ren, President of Taiwan Physiotherapists Association.

Mr Juan reminded that massage chair sold in the market must be cautiously used. For example, long term usage of massage chair may cause hardening of blood vessels in diabetes patient.

Dr. Xie Lu Lan from Xinguang Hospital in Taiwan said that some people are not suitable to use massage chair. Examples are people with

  • soft skin
  • diabetes
  • hardening of blood vessels

If they use massage chair for more than 30 minutes, internal bleeding may even occur.
