While it may seem like the logical therapy for pain, a vigorous massage can paradoxically make pain worse. A number of people have reported worsened pain after general massage. The reason for the aggravation of pain is probably due to the practice of placing excessive pressure on nerve endings to relieve knotty muscles. Nerve compression only exacerbates the pain created by an already irritated nervous system. Vigorous massage can also release accumulated toxins into the system. Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may feel general malaise after massage because of the sluggish elimination of these toxins. On the other hand, gentle massage is often beneficial.
