    "Do not use if menstruating"???

    I was at the mall yesterday and they had placed expensive massaging chairs throughout the mall that you could try for like a buck a minute. These were some deep massaging chairs, I tried one and I didn't know a chair could be so forceful. Anyway on the warning sign they say not to use if your pregnant or menstrating. I can understand pregnancy because the chair did kind of jolt you around, but why would they warn not to use it if your on your period?

    I just thought that was curious and wanted to know if there was a specific danger involved.

    My guess would be because they don't won't you to leak on to the chair.

    Maybe it's a hormonal thing. I know I always got more head rushes during my period. And things were kind of off-balance. So maybe they don't want you passing out when you stand up after the massage. Just a thought...

    Maybe a massage like that can make the flow heavier?
