In brief: No danger if appropr

Massage therapy is not generally recommended in acute soft tissue injury.
Massage could be done to the rest of the body including lymphatic drainage massage . For circulatory disorders it is a very good healing method. Massage therapy is a form of physical therapy and the same rule applies here- patient should have comfortable, pleasant, feeling.
