Flu or Cold. Sneezing Woman Sick Blowing Nose

As cold and flu season descend upon us, it’s a good time to remind you that getting a massage when you’re not feeling well is not a good idea. Massage stimulates your circulation. In doing so, if you feel as though you may be getting ill, if you are coughing, congested or feeling weakened, or if you are not fully recovered, massage can actually make you feel worse. It is better for you (and for me too ) to reschedule your appointment, if you’re not feeling well.
Also, should I find that I’m not feeling well, I will call you so we can talk about rescheduling. No one needs a massage and a cold as a parting gift!! Stay rested, stay well and hope to see you soon.
