What are the contraindications to massage?

Massage is non-invasive, relaxing and natural. It is therefore generally considered a safe treatment for most people. However, there are three types of contraindication: TOTAL, when massage should not be performed at all, LOCAL, when massage can be performed but not over the contraindicated areas and MEDICAL, when massage can only be performed once medical permission has been granted.

Does a contraindication mean that treatment cannot take place?

Not always. In fact, massage can be very therapeutic for many medical conditions. However, in the above cases and whenever you or your therapist are unsure whether it is safe to proceed, it is best to have advice from your physician. Massage therapists, unless they are also qualified doctors, should not attempt to diagnose a condition.
