When is Massage NOT Appropriate?
Massage is generally considered a safe treatment for most people. However, there are three types of contraindication

(reasons not to receive treatment):
TOTAL, when massage should not be performed at all
LOCAL, when massage can be performed but not over the contraindicated areas
MEDICAL, when massage can only be performed once medical permission has been granted.

The following restrictions are in place to protect your health and well-being.

Total Contraindications  Local Contraindications, Medical Contraindications
When you have any of these conditions, please do not book a massage:

  • Fever
  • Contagious or infectious diseases, including any cold or flu no matter how mild it may seem.
  • Under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Skin diseases
  • Cancer (unless in terminal stages and then with medical permission)

Frequently Asked Questions

Going for a massage can sometimes be a little daunting especially, if you've never had a massage before or it's a new therapist. Questions like: What clothes do I need to take off? Will it be sore? What oils does the therapist use? And, a multitude of other questions will often go through your mind whilst booking your appointment and sometime right up to the moment when you're sat in the waiting area.

Here I hope to answer at least some of these questions for you. I've detailed how I work but most massage therapists work in a similar manner so whoever you are going to see you should find the information here helpful and hopefully it will help you feel a little more confident about what to expect when you enter the treatment room.
