Precautions/ Contra-Indications

Massage is a safe treatment for most people. However there are health factors known as contraindications which may affect the type of treatment I can offer.

Total contraindications are straight forward. They mean that the client cannot receive any massage with any of the following conditions:

  • Fever & Sickness
  • Recent heart attack, stroke or DVT
  • Contagious or infectious diseases like Scabies & Impetigo
  • Recent operations

Local contraindications are when the massage therapist cannot massage over areas affected by the following conditions:

  • Undiagnosed lumps and bumps
  • Varicose veins
  • Bruising
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Sunburn

There are some conditions which I would like to get consent from your doctor, to check that massage therapy is suitable.

Please contact me to discuss how massage can help you.
