It is possible, but only in the header (very top) or footer (very bottom) of the page.

Go to "Space Admin" -> "Themes" -> Click "Configure Theme" -> then you will see two text boxes, one for header and one for footer. The macro will need to be inserted here using the old Confluence wiki markup. It's basically {macroName} or {macroName:parameter=value|parameter2=value2}

If you need to figure out the names of the parameters, just click the "View Storage Format" menu option for a page and then map those to the wiki markup format.
