Before you book a session here at Vive, understanding what contraindications are is imperative when communicating exactly what needs to be considered for your massage session specifically.
What Are Indicators For Massage?
The definition of an indication for massage is literally, a reason to provide someone with a massage, such as back pain, neck or shoulder pain, muscle spasm, muscle weakness, whiplash, nerve injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, poor circulation, tendinitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, constipation, headaches and migraines, sinus disorders and skin problems.
What Are Contraindicators For Massage?
This would be a reason not to provide someone with a massage. A contraindication is something that massage may interact with negatively, for example a fever or severe pain.
It’s not all black and white though. There are varying degrees of indications and contraindications. Contraindications may be further defined as relative or absolute, general or regional. What’s more, they can be a combination of these.
