Massage therapist pulling on neck?
posted by Tylwyth Teg to health & fitness (15 answers total)
I just got an hour long massage. The certified massage therapist pulled firmly up on my neck from the base of my head several times, as if to put me into balance. Basically she manipulated my neck. This made me very nervous as it seemed more like something a chiropractor might do. It didn't actually hurt but it felt odd. Now, after the massage, I have an odd, numbish/burning feeling in my scalp on that side. Have you had this technique in a massage and is it normal?
