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
- Cuts and abrasions
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.
