Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn't be painful or uncomfortable. If any part of your massage doesn't feel right or is painful, speak up right away. Most serious problems come from too much pressure during massage.
*Cancer patients can seek relief from pain and promote health and well-being, but there may be some conflict where massage is not recommended.
