Hi Amy,

I'm sure you've heard this answer before: before proceeding with massage, ask your doctor for the go-ahead.  I work with several MS clients, who benefit greatly from light to moderate Swedish massage, to reduce overall pain.  In the case of medication, it is always wise to make sure that increasing circulation, as massage does, will not create any undesired effects.  As for the site of the pump itself, caution in working around the area is indicated.  Thank you for your question.  Be well!


These would be discussed per your case type before you get a massage. We offer a FREE 30 minute massage, call us at 253-852-1250 and visit us on the web
