Massage Therapy Safe for Allergy Sufferers

New Leaf Massage Therapy keeps a safe environment for people with allergies, sensitivities or asthma. Essential oils and specialized lotions are not utilized, making the environment completely safe for allergies and even sensitivities that can be overlooked. Only hypoallergenic lotion is used, but people may bring a lotion they feel comfortable with if they are concerned. Different kinds of positioning and propping is always an option for those who suffer from seasonal allergies and can’t lie face down.

“Comfortable pressure, staying warm and enjoying soothing music are likely the most common concerns for people seeking massage therapy and bodywork. But for people affected by allergies, the concerns reach much farther,” explains Stephanie Dixon, Neuromuscular Massage Therapist at New Leaf. “Some people with allergies find themselves avoiding massage therapy because they are worried that it will trigger a reaction. They may be uncomfortable if the reaction is mild; they may need medical help in a worse situation. But massage and bodywork have many benefits, and there are options for almost everyone.”
