While most patients can resume work and exercise 5 weeks post surgery, each case is different. Request your surgeon to check you and to guide you as he/she knows the specifics of your case.

Massage therapist--will work affect the implants?

This far after surgery it is hard to imagine how doing your work will do anything harmful to your implants. Using your arms will actually "massage" your implants as you massage your clients, and most surgeons find this to be a positive. 

Do check with your own surgeon--we all have quirks about post-op care.

Best wishes.
