Massage Precautions / Contraindications
Massage should not be construed as a substitute for medical treatment. The basic purpose is for relaxation and relief of muscular tension.
If you’re in any doubt, or if you’re under medical supervision, check with your doctor or other qualified medical practitioner before embarking on massage therapy. This advice applies particularly in the case of cardiovascular conditions and heart disease, especially in cases of thrombosis, phlebitis, and edema. Also, before you schedule a massage, consult a qualified medical practitioner in cases of raised temperature, infections, or contagious disease.
Please note: Massage is not recommended for anyone who has a fever or flu-like symptoms.
