- Blood pooling is caused by a sudden drop in blood pressure, it is characterised by the client feeling light-headed and dizzy. Due to low blood pressure the blood struggles to get back up to the brain (poor venous return) and literally “pools” in the feet. this can be caused by stopping suddenly after a period of moderate – heavy exercise, or just standing still for a long period of time. A gradual cool down will prevent blood pooling.
