Spa Treatments with a pacemaker

Submitted by webmaster on Thu, 10/25/2018 - 11:01

I am 22 years of age and I was wondering if I can have spa treatments due to having a pacemaker. I got offered a stone massage treatment but then told I couldn’t have it due to pacemaker, but I am just wondering what treatments I can actually have.
I have had my pacemaker for the past 3 years and just getting frustrated on things I can and can’t do. Is there a list to help me?

Kind Regards
