Best Answer

Yes, it is not uncommon for people to become lightheaded after a massage.

Part of the reason is because many people don't realize that massage affects almost all of the major systems of the body, including the lymphatic system. Your muscles and skin often hold toxins that normally drain into your lymphatic system. A massage will enhance this function and can, in some cases, cause you to feel lightheaded when you get up from the massage.

Some people become lightheaded because they are dehydrated; and others become lightheaded simply from lying prone for an extended period of time.

Simply take your time getting up after a massage and if you do feel lightheaded make sure you lie back down until you are ready to move.
