A high feverPatients who have a substantial fever, defined as one that is higher than 100.4 °F or 38 °C, cannot have a massage. It is best to postpone getting a massage if you are unwell and have a fever until you feel better. Most persons who have a fever are doing so because they are battling a potentially contagious viral or bacterial infection.
SurgeryThe immediate aftermath of major surgery should not be used for massage. Any surgical technique that enters and reveals a body cavity, any orthopedic procedure, or substantial tissue transaction or segmentation has the potential to result in long-term anatomical or physiological impairment.
Acute headacheIf a person has early symptoms of a severe headache without a diagnosis, massage is not advised. If the person also has numbness, tingling, or fatigue, they should also be referred to a doctor.
Infectious diseaseIf a customer has a communicable, airborne, viral infection like the flu, a cold, a throat infection from strep throat, measles, etc., massage is inappropriate and should be rescheduled to safeguard the professional and other massage clients.
Severe illnessPeople with advanced atherosclerosis should avoid massage therapy. A kind of arteriosclerosis known as atherosclerosis causes the artery walls to thicken and lose their flexibility.
MeningitisMassage is not permitted on meningitis patients. Meningitis can be communicable in addition to being a potentially fatal infection since it affects the nervous system and spinal cord.
Bleeding disorderIt is not advised for patients with severe hemophilia to have massage therapy. An inherited hemorrhagic condition called hemophilia induces variable degrees of uncontrolled bleeding. In persons with severe and moderate hemophilia, even a little injury to the tendons or joints can result in internal bleeding (in the joints and the muscles). In conclusion, avoid scheduling a massage appointment if you are going through any of the following:
- Feel feverish
- Were injured in a collision recently
- Feel queasy or sick
- Are severely sunburned, and have sores, rashes, or bruises.
