Massage nowadays has gained a lot of fans and the motivations and goals of those who do it vary from fatigue to relief of pain and muscle cramps.For this reason, both massage centers are becoming more and more popular, and there are many tools and technologies available for this work, either as massage chairs or as manual massagers. But massage is not for everyone, it’s just for healthy people. Even if done by beginners, it can be harmful.
1. Massager and cardiovascular disease:
Massage machines, especially hand and electric massagers, use traumatic techniques so that they can exacerbate the condition of people with underlying problems, especially in patients with cardiovascular disease, people with heart palpitations, depressed people, Patients with chronic pulmonary infection, people with pulmonary obstruction problems (such as emphysema), cancer, people with disks and involvement of nerve fibers such as sciatica or cervical nerves may aggravate the use of these devices.
2. Massage and Prohibition for Children:
These devices are also harmful to children, especially children under 10 years of age, as they damage their bone growth plate and disrupt their bone growth.
3. Elderly massage and osteoporosis:
Elderly people, especially older women who are very prone to osteoporosis, should not use these electric massagers at all because they can cause complications.
4. Massage and high blood pressure:
These devices can also increase the blood pressure of people with high blood pressure or variable blood pressure.
5. Lung Massage and Embolism:
Applying massagers to the neck in the elderly can cause pulmonary embolism and clots, which are associated with cerebral hemorrhage.
6. Massage and risk for the fetus:
If a pregnant woman uses an electric massager, it may cause embolism and clotting, which is very dangerous for both herself and the fetus.
7. Massage chair and spine problem:
Although these seats may not cause any side effects for everyone, they do not have significant physical benefits. Of course, for people with spinal osteoporosis, it can be very harmful, and especially for the elderly, we do not recommend using these chairs at all.
8. Massage beds and no cost:
There are advanced massage beds that are controlled by physicians and experts and allow for massage, but they are no better than manual massage.
9. Massage only manually:
If anyone for any reason feels that they need massage or want to do so, they should consult a physician with the necessary precautions to think of an experienced massage therapist, not an electronic device.
