As with many treatments affecting the soft tissue, there are times when massage therapy can cause some light discomfort but it is not harmful.
Discomfort usually diminishes and no technique of this nature is used without the therapist first discussing it with the client and obtaining your permission.
A comfort scale will be established and the therapist will work to the client’s tolerance level. The client can stop or change the treatment at any time and Massage therapists will modify their techniques to meet their client’s needs.
