Spa client died due to High Blood Pressure

I finally got a confirmation that a client in Althea Spa died.  Based on reports the deceased had high blood pressure and was taking medication.  Just a month before the incident he was admitted to the ICU for high blood pressure.  His high blood pressure was triggered by the massage.

This is a warning to all spa goers.  If you have high blood pressure, you are taking medications or have any ailment, consult your doctor before getting a massage.

Some therapists do ask their clients if they have ailments or high blood pressure but again this really depends on the client.  If the client lies about these things what can the therapist do?  Igo ra baya na sila mo tuman sa client.

I hope this serves as a warning to everyone not only to spa goers but spa establishments itself.  Even if the client is young, the spa has to ask questions regarding their health.  Mas maayo gani nga ang receptionist mangutana na gyud sa client bago mag assign ug therapist.  They have to screen their clients first and warn them of the dangers of getting a massage with high blood pressure.
