Although it is generally safe and pretty harmless, massage done with massage oil can prove to be risky for these people.
Heart disease – people with heart disease and cardiovascular problems should avoid oil massages as they are high in fats.
Kidney failure – people on dialysis should not go for an oil based massage.
Cancer – If you are suffering from cancer, avoid such sessions as they may damage the fragile tissues around the cancerous tissue.
Bleeding disorders – many oils have anticoagulant properties. People who are at risk of abnormal bleeding due to a disorder should strictly avoid such massage, unless the oil doesn’t have any anti-coagulant properties.
