Should I get a massage if I'm feeling sick?

March 30, 2018


If you are feeling sick with a cold, flu or viral infections the best thing you can do is stay home or seek medical assistance to get well.

Getting a massage at this time can actually make you feel more sick, as the toxins/bacteria will be re-circulated around your lymphatic system,  particularly if it is a high infection virus like whooping cough, influenza A or influenza B, so please note the following points if you are unwell:



  • ​Do not book a massage until you are completely well and have received clearance from a doctor

  • Be mindful that you can pass your germs to your therapist, so please let your therapist know if you have been recently ill.

  • Massage will not improve your condition, it can in-fact make you worse off

  • If you arrive at an appointment sick, you will NOT be seen
