Can I fall asleep when getting a massage?

If you ever received an amazing massage from your massage therapist, you have probably asked yourself if you could doze off during the treatment.

It’s not only perfectly ok to fall asleep, it’s even a positive sign.

When getting a massage, the movements not only reduces muscle pain, soreness and tension but also favours our nervous system to switch into a deep relaxing state of mind.

A professional massage sends signals to your mind to let go and switch off.

So it’s logical that a relaxing massage will make you fall asleep more easily.

The body will use this precious moment to reenergize the body and mind.

Also getting a massage before going to bed will help you fall asleep quicker and deeper.

Sleeping during a massage happens often. Although not everyone will sleep throughout the entire session most will doze off several times.

These mini sleeps are a very effective way to recuperate and boost your system.

It also means that you trust your therapist completely in order to let yourself go.

And there is no need to apologize after for having slept or even snored for a while.

Sleep could even be your primary goal when booking a massage.
