If you have any of the following contraindications, please let us know PRIOR to your appointment.
Our massage staff reserves the right to refuse treatment to ensure maintenance of health standards as per the NC Board of Massage.
Not within the first tri-mester and thereafter only if performed by therapists who are certified in Pre-Natal Massage.
Kidney Conditions or Liver Conditions
Massage can put increased strain on both the liver and kidney if they are not functioning normally. This occurs because massage increases blood flow, increasing the movement of waste through the body. If you are experiencing a health problem with either your kidney or liver it is likely that massage will not be appropriate for you. A doctor’s note will need to be presented prior to receiving treatment and will be kept on file.
Though massage is good at relieving some of the discomfort caused by cancer, it is contraindicated if the client is in active treatment. Clients with cancer diagnosis should obtain a release form from his/her doctor prior to scheduling treatment. A copy of the release form will be kept on file.
Massage increases blood flow and is not indicated if you have high blood pressure that is not under control.
