Some medical conditions may restrict, limit or prevent a treatment altogether. If you would like to discuss your medical condition and whether a treatment is suitable for you, there is a free consultation over the phone call 07492356781 or send an  email enquiry to [email protected]


Here is some more information on what may restrict, limit or totally prevent a massage

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Please feel free to contact us to discuss any concerns or queries you might have regarding the lists or any conditions that you are experiencing that you feel might affect your suitability for massage. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly recommended you get written approval from your doctor before receiving a massage.

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A MASSAGE IF YOU THINK IT MAY BE OF HARM TO YOU

Under the influence of drugs or alcohol (not be able to provide feedback that is appropriate)


Recent operations (6 months) (scarring process must be complete).

PREGNANCY: Wait 6 months after c-section, 6 weeks after normal delivery (after doctors check up). Wait till your 1st trimester is over before getting a massage. 


Neuritis-inflammation of one of more nerves

Contagious skin diseases e.g. scabies, ringworm, head lice, Impetigo, cold sores, conjunctivitis , wounds as there is a high risk of cross infection clients must not be treated. Once the infection has been treated with medication and has cleared up treatment can be carried out.

Viral or fungal diseases e.g. Athlete’s foot, Veruccas or Warts, Nail infections. Do not treat until the area is clear of infection.


Septic wounds, boils, folliculitis,–do not treat until the infection has been treated and has cleared up as cross infection can occur.


Abdominal or digestive complaints e.g. diarrhoea or hernia

Infectious diseases e.g. Flu, Measles, Mumps, Scarlet Fever, Chicken Pox etc. Massage will make you feel worse and You expose your infection/virus to other people eg.your therapist.


Total / Local contra-indications mean that the therapist cannot massage directly over areas affected by the following conditions (massage can worsen the problem)


Undiagnosed lumps and bumps

Varicose veins- swollen veins. Massage directly over varicose veins can worsen the problem. However, if apply a very light massage next to the problem, always in a direction toward the heart, it can be very beneficial.


Pregnancy


Bruising

Cuts and abrasions

Sunburn

Inflammation (Massage can further irritate an area of inflammation). Inflamed conditions include anything that ends in –itis, such as phlebitis (inflammation of a vein), dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), arthritis (inflammation of the joints), and so on. In the case of localized problems, you can still massage around them, however, avoiding the inflammation itself.


Undiagnosed pain


Hernia: Hernias are protrusions of part of an organ (such as the intestines) through a muscular wall. It's not a good idea to try to push these organs back inside. Surgery works better.


Broken bones: Therapist will stay away from an area of mending bones. A little light massage to the surrounding areas, though, can improve circulation and be quite helpful.


Skin problems: Therapist should avoid anything that looks like it shouldn't be there, such as rashes, wounds, bruises, burns, boils, and blisters, for example. Usually these problems are local, so you can still massage in other areas.
