Massage/Aromatherapy Massage after hysterectomy


I have been ask to to provide a lady with relaxing Aromatherapy Massage on the shoulders, arms, neck and upper back.

The lady had a hysterectomy last week.

Would it be safe to say yes; please?

Good morning Roger

Thank you for your question.  This is out of my field-but the only answer I would give anybody in your position: protect yourself first.

If anything goes wrong after the surgery; you'll be the first option to crucify.

I'd say wait for at least two months before attempting any treatments on her.

Alternatively, ask the patient to get a letter from her surgeon that your treatment is safe and cannot influence any other medical condition.

I don't know if I've answered your question or not; but that's how I would handle it if it were me.

Cheers for Auckland
