What does their doctor say ? Check there to start with. Find out if that was isolated incident and circumstances around it eg one off long haul flight, have they got any other circulation problems, various veins, poor circulation etc, how did they find out about the blood clot, what do the legs look time - any hot spots or redness. I don't kniw of t his drug - how long are they on it, check if client does any regular excercise etc ...... How's that to start with - make lots of notes - why is client seeking reflexology ? .... If your satisfied with all your enquires and doctor says ok - then I would think it ok to go ahead ! ...... What's your thinking ?
