As a specialist in wood therapy you must inform patients of the possible contraindications of the procedure during the consultation, remember to fill out and sign the informed consent form where you clarify all doubts and ask the client all his medical history.
The most common contraindications of wood therapy massage are as follows:
- Erythema (reddening of the skin)
- Localized bruising
- Headaches after treatment
- Localized aches and pains
- Feeling upset.
- Increased hunger.
- Increased perspiration.
- Changes in blood pressure (a reduction that may cause dizziness/nausea).
- Appearance of spots in the treated areas.
- Allergic reaction to massage products.
- Changes in sleep patterns.
There are a number of physiological reasons why a client may experience a specific reaction after treatment, as the drainage of lymph through the lymphatic system will activate the clients body through headaches, thirst and increased urination, perspiration can be caused by this and any associated dehydration.
If they are patients who have very sensitive skin or a low tolerance to pain, you should reduce the time in each section, but increase the intervals of the procedures to achieve results, which you should explain at the time of the consultation and the aftercare they should have to recover quickly or to prolong the effects of the treatment.
