some issues to consider.......

There are very few absolute times that you cannot have a massage or reflexology. However it is important that you let me know before you come for your appointment if you have any serious health problems . You can still book online but please add to the notes or call me to discuss your individual needs . 

Times to avoid massage /reflexology :

If you have a current deep vein thrombosis /blood clots (discuss with GP once on anti coagulants)

If you have a fever and feel unwell . (I will not charge for appointments cancelled due to illness)

If your blood pressure is too high and is not controlled with medicines.

If you have had a heart attack or stroke in the last month (please check with dr before booking )

If you have severe heart /kidney or liver disease (can be discussed with GP)

During the  the first 3 months of pregnancy for massage . After the first trimester I can provide pregnancy massage for uncomplicated pregnancy. Please ask your Obstetrician or midwife before booking if you have complications or an at risk pregnancy. 

Other Considerations ...........

Reflexology can be provided throughout pregnancy but please check with your dr or midwife first if you have complications . Also let me know if you have an IVF pregnancy or are undergoing fertility treatment.

If you have a have any wounds/skin infections (eg verrucas) please ensure they are covered /protected.
