A massage is a good way to relieve stress, improve blood circulation and relax totally, using either a massage oil or oil combined with a few drops of aromatherapy oils.
However there are times when a massage is quite dangerous and should not be attempted. Most of these 'contraindications' are listed below (but may not include all of them):
- Broken bones/fractures
- Blood clots
- Varicose veins
- Recent operations
- Recent scar tissue
- Inflamed areas
- Contagious skin conditions
- Lumps or bumps of unknown origin
- First 16 weeks of pregnancy.
- Some heart conditions.
If in doubt, consult with a doctor.
