Friend has loose stools, could it be from the massage?
massage was for a pulled muscle in the back, seeing a chiropractor along with.
Had a Javanese deep tissue massage today. Clicked my spine-every vertebra. Half a hour later started getting windy and profuse watery diarrhoea since. Think there is a link. Read Murakami's Kafka on the shore and in story there is an old man that develops special gift to align peoples' backs. He warns patients that it might open their bowels and in the fictional story it did. Maybe the Japanese knows something we don't.
I have just finished my second thai massage about 45 mins after, I needed the toilet, the smell was foul, maybe I had a blockage, but it was much more like I just had a colonic, there has got to be a link between the massage and opening of bowls.
