Massage low risk?

Nov 18, 2009


Sorry I know you will probably explode with frustration,recently I had a back massage at at a massage parlour. For some reason I freaked out a little afterwards but could not find anyting to back up my fears. I was just 'moving on' when I say that a doctor at the San Francisco Clinic classified body masssage as a 'low risk activity' this has put me back to square one.

Response from Dr. Frascino


The HIV-acquisition/transmission risk from a back massage is nonexistent. Yep, that's right: absolutely no risk! Zero! Zip! Nada! Bupkis! Got it? Good. End of story!
