In brief: No dangers

Massage therapy is a wonderful healing method on its own or combined with others for multiple conditions- physical and mental.
Contraindications for it would be abscesses (puss collections), significant breaks on the skin, infections, fevers etc. A massage therapist would know them. The danger would come if you are in the hands of some one incompetent.
