I went for a traditional Malay "urut" (massage) yesterday morning. Oh boy! I wonder I should go back there in 2 weeks time or not.
Recommended by my SIL, this was my first time went for urut after delivery. Heard it helps to expel wind and heal the womb, so I thought I give it a try. But when the urut guy (a man) started on my feet, I regretted my decision for a while. It was painful!! I almost jumped out from the bed.
The urut started from the feet and then legs and arms and hands. After that my back, face, head and lastly my tummy. The tummy part was the most painful when the urut was in progress. But after the 30-minutes massage, I felt good although some sores here and there.
It did not end there. In late afternoon, I felt some sores and pains on the tummy area. The wound area also in pain. So I was not in good mood last night because of discomfort and pain. Luckily I feel better after woke up this morning.
Supposed to join a friend for a dance exercise this morning but I did not go. Do not want to exert the pains more. Maybe I should not do anything vigoruos for now and let my body rests and wound really heal well.
Anyone went for any urut after delivery? Do you experience the same like I do? Maybe because I went for C-Section and it may not be good to do such activities at early stage?
