Are There Any Medical Conditions That Would Make Massage or Bodywork Inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the therapist asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the therapist of any health problems or medications you are taking. It’s important to note that there are some conditions where massage is not recommended.
For example, massage is contraindicated in people with:
Certain forms of cancer
Some cardiac problems
Some skin conditions
**If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Your therapist may require a recommendation or approval from your doctor.
