I don't understand the basis for this answer. There is no distinction made between depressed and clinically depressed intervention. Textbooks refer to antidepressants and the only contraindication is the client's lowered ability to sense heat and cold. Massage and stress relief supports the depressed client by normalizing brain chemistry to an extent—and like exercise, reduces the need for higher dosage.
