    Sports Massage

    Who has had a sports massage here?

    My PT has started doing it and I'm bruising. Is this his inexperience? Don't get me wrong, I was able to do a front loaded squat with my elbows right up after he had finished, but I'm left with finger bruises on my arms :-/ am I just a delicate little flower?

    I've never had one personally, but I have heard they can be quite.. vigorous depending on the masseur so I wouldn't be worried about bruising. If you're worried, perhaps ask your PT if it's normal? That doesn't mean you're not a delicate little flower, though.

    I think I have seen your arms in another thread, they are in no way delicate! Popeye would be proud of those arms!

    My boss has quite a few - he says they help but they're not as such pleasant!

    We have an onsite physio here and yeah, she's vicious, effective but vicious. I've been left with bruises, but I've only needed massage to that level once to dissipate muscle knots around my shoulder blades

    Looks more like you've been abducted by aliens than had a massage, but yeah they don't look like anything to worry about at all in my opinion.

    I think I'm just worried about what people might think. They know I go to the gym anyways, so they probably won't even ask.

    Yeah... nobody has said anything thus far. I think maybe if I was sad and withdrawn they might. Or maybe if I started drinking this Malibu I have been given they might :-P

    Do keep an eye on it if you're bruising easily though.
