In brief: Increased circulatio

Depending on the depth and intensity of massage (deep vs superficial), the swelling could be secondary to increase circulation in the area and a local reaction of the muscle.
It should get better in 1-2 days, if not visit your doctor. Also, make sure the massage therapist is a certified one and let them know about your reaction so they can modify the treatment if needed. www.otwithmd.com.
