5. I sometimes find, that after a massage, my neck hurts. Why is that?
Did the massage table just have a hole in the table so that you could breathe while lying on your stomach? Did you find that just lying in this position, there was pressure on your face? This suggests that your neck was having to bend further forward in order for you face to rest in the face hole. Unfortunately, your face was taking more of the pressure and affecting the neck muscles as well. If some cushioning had been provided around the face hole, your face and neck would have been in a "neutral" position. You would have felt more comfortable.
To make your massage session more comfortable for you, I use a different type of massage table. This massage table has a face cradle that attaches to the end of the massage bed. This face cradle has an adjustable lever which means that you can move the face rest to a position that is comfortable for you. Your neck/head are in a more natural position for you during the massage. Result: no more neck ache!
If positioning is particularly a problem for you, I have a special support foam system that can that be used. Please ask about this option.
