Who should avoid lymphatic massage?
A lymphatic massage is intended to rev up the lymphatic system, circulating and filtering fluid at a faster rate. Therefore some contraindications to receiving this type of massage are as follows:
Renal failure/severe kidney disease
Congestive heart failure
Blood clot or pulmonary embolism in the past 2 months
Unexplained abdominal pain
Foot fungus (due to not wanting to spread this throughout the body)
Congestive heart failure and kidney disease can be treated as long it is being managed by a physician who approves treatment/massage.
