I went for a massage the other day for the first time in a couple years. Two things: first, my skin is so, so itchy, everywhere! It's not red or anything - my skin is very thick, not sensitive at all and I'm not allergic to anything. I Googled and apparently, massage causes blood vessels and capillaries to expand with oxygenated blood, sending "itching" signals to the brain. I couldn't even sleep the other night, it was so bad. Two, my clothes are much looser, but no weight loss. I've never had either of these occur after a massage before.
