Deep Tissue Massage after Plastic Surgery

Hi, a client of mine has approached to work on certain areas of her post-plastic surgery. Apparently the surgeon has recommended deep tissue massage to help avoid any scar tissue below the skin and keep the tissue areas smooth with no swollen areas. I am happy to do this and her scars are healing well, but am I covered for this or should I do a disclaimer? do you have any draft disclaimer forms you can send me if you do advise I have her sign one? many thanks, Claire

I wouldn't recommend DT as it might be a bit drastic (and painful). The way to go is myofascial release - try and find someone who trained with Jing in Brighton - we do a lot of work on scarring on their courses and it's REALLY effective!
