CONTRA INDICATIONS

(condition or factor that increases the risks involved in using a particular drug, carrying out a medical procedure, or engaging in a particular activity).

Contra indications are physical or behavioural reasons that would prevent a massage from taking place in full (or in part) safely. A Consultation form must be completed prior to treatment in order to ascertain whether you have any contra indications or 'special care' conditions present. This is done in order to prioritise your health and the health of me as your therapist.

Guidelines are provided below to help you pre-empt the Consultation which will take place on your arrival for treatment.

If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to call me. Depending on the nature of the contra indication, Therapies may be tailored accordingly.
