Best Answer

The fluid in your brain starts spinning. You get dizzy when you get up too fast because when you are sitting down, all the the blood is in you arms and legs, but when you stand up really quick, all of the blood rushes to your head, therefore you either get a headache or get dizzy. Its basically the reaction to the speed of your blood movement.

Why do you become dizzy after a massage?

The most common reason that some people get dizzy after a massage has to do with the transition from being relaxed and lying down and then change to a vertical position standing up too fast. If you ever laid out in the sun and then stood up too quickly that you experienced a slight dizzy feeling, then you have experienced the same thing. A good massage will relax you, and then if the massage therapist does not get you up slowly, you may experience dizziness of even fainting.
