Some absolute contraindications can even cause death to the client. Just remember that to get the maximum benefit, you should visit a licensed massage therapist who is reputable. The therapists can be visited at a spa or sometimes a professional can even be called to your home to give a proper full body massage in the comfort of your own house.
