Good Morning, I am a licensed massage therapist. One of my clients was just put on dialysis. As long as I stay away from the port sight, is it OK for me to massage her once she gets home from treatment?

Massage is fine for dialysis patients as long as you stay away from any of her dialysis access.  This would include any arm fistula (vein used for dialysis treatments) or catheter that she has in her chest or any other site with a catheter.
