Each client is unique and we start each session with client intake interviews to assure that we are not putting the client in danger. Unknown health conditions can create risks for the client and unnecessary liabilities for the therapist. Honesty with your medical practitioner is imperative for a complete understanding of the clients ability to receive massage treatment. Before you book a massage, please read the list of contraindications we have provided.
A General Indication means that, due to some underlying condition or disease; under no circumstance should the client receive massage.
A Local Indication means the area impacted by the condition should be avoided.
Some General and Local Indications for massage include:
Abnormal Body Temperature
Acute Infectious Disease
Hypertension ( High Blood Pressure)
Prescription Drugs ( Dr release required)
Contagious skin conditions (see below)
Certain Skin Conditions can be treated, however; contagious skin conditions should not be massaged including: Acne, Broken vessels, burns and blisters, boils, bruises, carbuncles, eczema, hypersensitive skin, impetigo, inflammation, lacerations, lumps, moles, pimples, rashes, scaly spots, scratches, skin cancer, skin tags, sores, stings and bites, tumor, warts, wounds
Each practitioner must be properly informed and aware of the individual's needs, and the intake interview will help to determine how much is done and the precautions taken.
