The Risk of Injury
“Any touch has a physical affect on the body”. Without the proper education about stretching, limits of the body, and functions of muscles, the masseuse can injure your body. If the massage parlor is unlicensed, it is possible that the masseuses might not be well-trained professionals. With the proper knowledge of Kneading, the trained masseuse can breaks up muscle adhesions and increases blood flow. But, untrained masseuse from an unlicensed massage parlor can do the opposite to your body rather than resolving the ache. Stretching your body could detach a ligament from the bone and the unprofessional massage therapist can damage your body badly.
If you have health problems or had surgery before, you should be more careful with getting a massage. You should get a massage from a massage therapist rather than a masseuse because therapist have more knowledge about body. You better not go to unlicensed massage parlors for your health and safety.
