There are many medical conditions that can prevent or restrict treatment, such as diabetes, heart conditions, blood presure problems and skin disorders.
Please let the salon know at least two weeks prior to your appointment as we may need to seek medical approval from you G.P. prior to your appointment.
Please bear in mind that it can take several weeks to obtain medical approval as Doctors are not used to receiving such information requests and many are not aware of the implications.
We do everything in our power to make this process as easy as possible for you, arrange consent paperwork and sending comprehensive forms to your GP or care providers. When the paperwork is complete we then contact you to let you know it is ready for collection, as GP's will not release it to us. We are however, in the process of digitising this service.
We ask that you avoid treatment for a two week period after being vaccinated, particularly if you have received a live vaccine or are exhibiting symptoms of the disease. Any treatment involving massage is contra-indicated (prohibited) during this period. This applies to both injections and nasal sprays.
The medical community is currently split on the process of live, attenuated vaccines and "shedding," - this is the use of weakened live viruses and the spreading of the illness whilst your body fights it. Until we obtain the relevant research or receive a definitive answer we are unable to treat anyone for two weeks after receiving a vaccination.
