Massage and Scuba Diving

Because massage stimulates the circulatory system,

i.e. "shakes the soda bottle",

a surface interval of four hours is recommended prior to massage

if you dive below 80 feet and a surface interval of 6 hours

is recommended if you dive below 120 feet, to allow the body

to sufficiently off-gas. If you plan to dive more than 2 tanks

per day, please save your massage for a day you are not diving.

 

80 feet = 4 hour surface interval

120 feet = 6 hour surface interval
