Under certain circumstances, massage may not be in the client’s best interest. For example, if you are experiencing a fever or have influenza or flu-like symptoms, you should reschedule or postpone your therapy. Other conditions that are contraindicated for massage include contagious conditions such as conjunctivitis, impetigo, ringworm, Athlete’s Foot, and the initial stages of the common cold. If in doubt, please call your therapist to discuss the best plan of action.
