Just had a massage this afternoon...so nice, since I missed work Monday because of a painful and stiff lower back, and it's been nagging me all week. But during the massage, and uncomfortable thing kept happening. As the therapist would work from my upper to lower spine, the muscles would spasm...it felt almost like a reflex. It wasn't painful but it sure wasn't relaxing. But if she worked from the lower spine going up it wouldn't happen. I asked her about it and all she said was, there's something going on here. (This was the first time I've gone to this massage therapist.) This has happened in the past during massages, when I'm really stressed. Has anyone experienced this? Is this because of the therapist, or is it just me?
