When a massage is a bad idea?

- With cardiovascular diseases, people who have a pacemaker, liver and kidney disease, osteoporosis, fractures, malignancies.
- With inflammation of the veins and lymphatic pathways. Deep venous thrombosis is particularly dangerous because the massage process leads to increased circulation, which can trigger thrombosis and lead to fatal outcome
