What if you have these conditions?
If you suffer from any of these conditions, sometimes your massage therapist will ask you to talk to your doctor, or healthcare provider before booking a massage session. Remember that your medical condition must be stable first, and you have to tell your therapist all your symptoms; this way your massage therapist will create a personalized massage treatment according to your needs because he/she is always focused in making you feel better, and keeping you safe.
It is highly recommended that if you have had any health issues, like infectious disease, recent injuries let your therapist know. They need to know everything about your health such as past and present medical problems; this information can determinate if the massage treatment is suitable for you. Also, this information allows the therapist to make some changes to their approach, and techniques to create a suitable treatment for you. For example, areas with burns, wounds, staples or pins will be avoided.
Other precautions that your therapists needs to know about your present allergies. Some people have skin allergies (to creams, oils, cleansers or disinfectants) or can be allergic to some materials like clothes in sheets or even gloves. In these cases the therapist will need to use different products according to your needs or there are people who prefer to bring their own products.
