Massage is believed to help the body eliminate its natural waste products. This is why most massage therapist encourages the intake of water after a massage. Always check with your Doctor – Even beneficial things can be harmful. (Examples: someone with high blood pressure could have a heart attack or stroke after drinking a lot of water, someone with heart problems could have a heart attack as a result of exercising.) So be smart and always check with your Doctor.
