Massage for you
Common belief is that anyone can be massaged regardless of age, sex and physical condition. I would like to highlight some exceptions here. There are many conditions which may make the massage treatment contraindicated, preventing a person from having the treatment. I strongly recommend to read this to be sure that a massage will be a pleasant time for us to relax and unwind, and not a cause of pain. Massage can not be performed to a person with a fever, acute inflammation of joints or muscles and when the patient is suffering from an advanced osteoporosis.
People suffering from skin diseases with blisters, eczema, as well as fresh wounds or scars should not undergo massage sessions. As for the internal medicine, the conditions which exclude having a massage are: peptic ulcer disease (bleeding ulcer), gallstones and kidney and inflammation of bile ducts and intestines. Other internist diseases which are contraindications for massage are: celiac disease (digestive disorders associated with gluten intolerance to be concluded by the grains), hernia, infection: pancreatitis, appendicitis, peritonitis, hepatitis, and parasitic diseases of the substrate.
When it comes to cardiovascular diseases, massage is not recommended for people who recently underwent heart attack (they must wait at least 2 weeks), have varicose veins with skin changes, blemish disease, severe peripheral vascular disease, or uncompensated heart failure.
Contraindications associated with the nervous system are: aneurysms, angiomas and hematoma, suspected meningococcal meningitis and found hematomas, aneurysms and angiomas. Massage should not be offered to people with known: nephrosis, renal tuberculosis, inflammation of the ureter and bladder of acute and suffering from pyelonephritis.
To summarize all the contraindications to massage, which preclude its implementation, I always recommend that you consult your GP. From my experience with my clients, I know that massage can be relieving physically and spiritually, a real treat for our body and mind. I’ve seen many people positively transformed immediately after the session. However, sometimes it takes a few sessions to see the beneficial results of massage.
