I had to put this to you all to see if you agree, I had a client booked in for a cold slimming body treatment only to find she suffers with high blood pressure which is a contra-indication to the treament. So I politely and professionally explained the situation and asked her to seek advice from her GP before I could go ahead with the treatment, to which she got very aggrovated and told me no way would she spend an hour in the doctors surgery for ME! She told me she has sports massages all the time and she has never had a problem, so I asked her if any of them had asked about her blood pressure first and she didn't really answer me. Well in the end she got up and stormed out. But obviously none of the other salons are checking contra-indications, would you have done the treatment anyway? I know I did my job properly but how many other therapists aren't???
