 Contraindications of massage

Being massage therapists, we usually tell people about the benefits a massage can give you. Nevertheless, there are instances where getting a massage is not the best treatment a person may need. They are usually called massage contraindications, meaning that a person may have a condition where a massage on a single part of the body or the whole body would not be beneficial to the individual. Some of there contraindications are as follows:
  •  A high temperature
  • Infectious and acute disease
  • Inflammation
  • Varicose veins
  • High blood pressure
  • Fractures, burns or bleeding
  • Opens sores or lesions 
  • Blood clots
  • Osteoporosis

  • Rest
