Welcome to HCM.
Since it is already 6 months past C Section, you can certainly do steam and sauna and have full body massage.
The surgical wound must have healed completely by now, though it will take nearly two years for the muscles to regain their original strength at the site of incision.
If you feel healthy and comfortable there is no reason why you cannot resume your job as a massage therapist.
