When the body is dehydrated a mild headache may occur. This can happen when you do not drink enough fluids or water before and after the massage.
When scheduling your next appointment make sure you drink plenty of water to avoid a headache. During the massage, the tissues are being squeezed and compressed so metabolic waste is being moved through the bloodstream. The body is flushing out the excess fluids and waste through sweat and urination. It is vital after a massage to replenish those fluids with several ounces of water. If not, it's possible that you may have a mild headache with soreness afterwards.
