Contraindications to performing a massage

General contraindications to massage therapy

General contraindications to massage include diseases, illnesses and conditions that inhibit the ability to perform a massage. This is why we conduct a thorough interview with the client before we proceed with the massage. During the first visit, we create a detailed health profile(after a medical interview), and with subsequent visits we conduct brief interviews to update the current situation.

First, do no harm

Absolute contraindications, both general and local, do not allow a massage session. Relative recommendations place certain restrictions on the type, extent, area, time and timing of the massage.

Similarly - if we do refrain from performing a treatment, it is always a decision aimed at improving the patient's condition. For ethical reasons, we do not perform any treatment that could lead to deterioration of the client's health.
