Did You Know To Check With Your Doctor Before Getting A Massage
If you know you have health issues, or you don’t know about possible health issues —– its best to check with your doctor before getting a massage.
Your doctor can give you clearance, then you can consult with a Registered Massage Therapist for further assessment and appropriate treatment for best results.
Just keep in mind, if you are using pain medications this will reduce your pain-threshold levels, so you and your massage therapist will not know the areas that are sensitive to you.
If you are using blood thinners, please consult with your doctor before you visit a Massage Therapist.
Also, keep in mind that deep tissue massage is not a good idea for someone on blood thinners.
If you have high blood pressure, please consult with your doctor before you visit a Massage Therapist.
If you have Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), keep in mind that during flares, when joints are stiff, avoid active areas of inflammation when massaging.
If you have active breast cancer, for example, the massage therapist should avoid putting direct pressure on the breast or surrounding lymph nodes.
If you have a serious or chronic illness, be sure to inform the massage therapist and check with your doctor before getting a massage.
